N Korea media highlights Trump concessions on war games

Unprecedented meeting seen as a path to world peace

Some analysts are likely to see the comments as part of a worrying trend since North Korea showed no public sign at the summit or since that it is now willing to implement the complete, irreversible and verifiable destruction of its nuclear programs.

Why has it taken this long to get North Korea to the table? Now that Kim has a hydrogen bomb and missiles that can deliver it to the U.S., he says he doesn't need to test them anymore and can dedicate more of his resources toward the economy.

There have been inconsistencies in remarks from other top US officials on whether sanctions will only come after complete denuclearization, or may be eased along the way.

At a news conference in Singapore after almost five hours of talks there with Kim, Trump said he "knows for a fact" that North Korea is serious about denuclearization this time and that Kim "wants to do the right thing".

80,000 to 120,000 political prisoners are held in North Korean prisons, according to a United Nations commission of inquiry, which found that the regime's crimes included "extermination, murder, enslavement, torture, imprisonment, rape, forced abortions and other sexual violence, persecution on political, religious, racial and gender grounds, the forcible transfer of populations, the enforced disappearance of persons and the inhumane act of knowingly causing prolonged starvation". He told Trump, according to the KCNA, North Korea and the US should refrain from antagonizing with each other and take relevant "legal" and "institutional" actions on that matter.

But he said that was no longer the case, and everyone can "sleep well tonight".

But while Trump also voiced a desire to eventually bring back US troops as well, he told Baier that the U.S.

"There is no longer a Nuclear Threat from North Korea", Trump tweeted as Air Force One returned from Singapore. "That will take a while".

That would go against what the Trump administration has said so far.

In Pyongyang, North Korean state media heralded claims of a victorious meeting with the USA president; photos of him standing side-by-side with Trump on the world stage were splashed across newspapers.

Japan's defence chief said on Wednesday that the U.S. military presence in South Korea and joint military exercises were "vital" for East Asian security.

If any team is willing to part ways with their top-five pick, Tobias may be the guy that makes a potential deal fall through. Los Angeles now owns both the No. 12 and No. 13 picks and could package them with a player to move into the top 10.

According to the Reuters poll, 26 percent of Americans said they believe that both the us and North Korea will meet their commitments under the agreement.

A senior South Korean defense ministry official said Tuesday that the South is trying to determine exactly what President Trump meant when he said that exercises would end.

The president's suspension of the exercises came as U.S. Forces-Korea, led by Army Gen. Vincent Brooks, is preparing for the annual Ulchi-Freedom Guardian exercises later this summer with the South Koreans.

Pompeo will meet President Moon Jae-in on Thursday morning to discuss the summit.

Pompeo was scheduled to travel next to Beijing before returning to Washington.

South Korea's presidential office said it needs to seek clarity on Mr Trump's intentions are after he said Washington will stop joint military exercises.

Trump made a big concession to North Korea by suspending joint military drills with South Korea.

Trump described his meeting with Kim as "an interesting and very positive experience" and said North Korea "has great potential for the future". The latest example concerns North Korea.

There are usually two sets of exercises every year, in spring and autumn, involving a massive number of troops and military hardware.

KCNA said the two leaders "gladly accepted each other's invitation, convinced that it would serve as another important occasion for improved" relations between their countries.
