South Korea seeks clarity from USA after Trump-Kim summit

Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un at Singapore summit

Hours after his historic summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on Tuesday, President Donald Trump told reporters he hoped he would also be able to negotiate a "real deal" with Iran.

The report quoted Kim Jong-un as saying that ridding the Korean Peninsula of nuclear weapons is dependent on Washington and Pyongyang ceasing moves that antagonise each other. North Korea has "been consistent in its message to the United States for the past decades, you know, 'We want, in exchange for denuclearization, a fundamental resolution to the Korean War, '" she said.

"Before taking office people were assuming that we were going to War with North Korea", he continued in a second post. But the meeting also produced more questions than answers, with the big one being: Will the North Korean dictator actually follow through on denuclearizing? It said the meeting was held to bring an end to "extreme, hostile relations" between the countries.

After the whirlwind trip, Trump eagerly boasted, "There is no longer a Nuclear Threat from North Korea".

Two more pages of photos and the summit declaration on page 4. If U.S. troops in South Korea were to really halt military exercises, he says, it could cause allies to lose confidence in Washington and undermine the entire U.S. military presence in Asia.

"Trump expressed his intention to halt US-South Korea joint military exercises, offer security guarantees to the North and lift sanctions against it along with advance in improving the mutual relationship through dialogue and negotiation", it said.

Many lawmakers from both parties, while unready to declare the summit a diplomatic victory or defeat, remained skeptical the US could successfully negotiate a deal toward peace with Kim - but are letting the process play out.

Trump on Tuesday seemed fine with this, saying he thought Kim was being honest.

Trump several times said there were things he and Kim talked about, and agreed on, that were not contained in the formal document.

The Hermit Kingdom's disciplined labor and natural resources combined with South Korea's huge capital along the Chinese border will propel both countries toward economic prosperity, according to the investor.

"Kim Jong Un and Trump had the shared recognition to the effect that it is important to abide by the principle of step-by-step and simultaneous action in achieving peace, stability and denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula", KCNA said.

It added that North Korea and the United States should take legal, institutional steps to guarantee it.

Kim at one point told Trump that many people around the world would see their meeting as a kind of fantasy, as if it the event was a "science fiction movie". -South Korean military exercises, framing it as Trump agreeing to a request from Kim.

But the future remains uncertain - the USA and North Korea did not reach any agreement on the details of how to achieve or verify that denuclearization.

The Hill has also reached out to the White House for comment.

The Singapore summit and its lead-up have been the young leader's coming of age, giving him experience in dealing with Trump and Xi, the world's two most powerful men. "As I said earlier today: Anyone can make war, but only the most courageous can make peace!".
