Is anything out of reach after historic summit with North Korea?

Asked in a press conference whether he had betrayed the 100,000 or so political prisoners, many of whom would live their lives caged for relatively mild criticism of Kim or deviations the regime's narratives, Trump tried to argue that he had actually helped them.

The agreement said the two countries would co-operate towards "new relations" while the United States would provide "security guarantees" to North Korea. They're getting rid of things that haven't been mentioned in the document. "In the micro sense, it's about the families whose loved ones fought and died and have remained in North Korea".

The declaration took some South Korean and US military officials by surprise - though US Defence secretary Jim Mattis was not among them, with spokeswoman Dana White saying "there were no surprises". The drills help keep U.S. forces at a state of readiness in one of the world's most tense flashpoints.

Having acknowledged that the US-DPRK summit-the first in history-was an epochal event of great significance in overcoming decades of tensions and hostilities between the two countries and for the opening up of a new future, President Trump and Chairman Kim Jong Un commit to implement the stipulations in this joint statement fully and expeditiously.

But that language wasn't mentioned in a joint declaration signed by Trump and Kim, and no timetable was set for North Korea to eventually give up nuclear weapons.

Then later, the narrator says, "a new world can begin today", as an animated sequence suggests what the impoverished North Korea could look like from space if it was as brightly lit up at night as the far more prosperous South Korea. Neither the USA nor the South Korean government would confirm that the Trump administration warned President Moon Jae-in ahead of time about the decision to suspend exercises. "I didn't know anything about North Korea".

But Trump told ABC News he believes that the trust is mutual.

Kim's commitment to denuclearize was included in a document signed after the first ever meeting between a sitting USA president and a North Korean leader.

KCNA noted that the summit meeting is the first in history between the two countries and will be held "under the great attention and expectation of the whole world". The document lacked specifics on the timeline or nature of denuclearization, however. "South Korea alliances, then this is the way to launch the process", said Evans Revere, a former USA diplomat in South Korea.

Trump also reaffirmed the tight US-Singapore relations by reassuring PM Lee that he was "his friend".

"It was not easy to get here", Kim said of the meeting. "Anybody that takes over a situation like he did at 26 years of age and is able to run it and run it tough". "I told him, you may not want this".

"Yeah, he's de-nuking, I mean he's de-nuking the whole place". I thought I was going to play basketball and meet the people and that was it. "I think he's going to start now".
