North Korea praises Donald Trump's 'enthusiasm' after historic summit

Kim Jong-un

Pompeo, after landing in South Korea, met for almost an hour with Gen. Vincent Brooks, commander of U.S. Forces Korea. President (Barack) Obama said that North Korea was our biggest and most risky problem.

"If they're not serious, then it's pretty easy to say, 'OK, those joint exercises that were scheduled for August are now going to happen in September or October, '" Thornberry said.

"Not all of that work appeared in the final document", Pompeo said. "But lots of other places where there were understandings reached, we couldn't reduce them to writing. And the issue is now, where do we go from here - whether we can maintain momentum from the summit and start putting flesh on those bones".

America and the world can "sleep well tonight", President Donald Trump declared on Wednesday, boasting that his summit with Kim Jong Un had ended any nuclear threat from North Korea though the meeting produced no details on how or when weapons might be eliminated or even reduced.

US critics of the deal said it was short on details and that Trump had made too many concessions to Kim, especially the USA leader's unexpected announcement that the United States is ending its military exercises with South Korea, long an irritant to North Korea.

"Obviously it is something that North Korea has complained about for a long time".

Trump has his critics around the world but the fact he has become the first US President to secure a meeting with a North Korean leader will go down in history.

At the summit, Trump emphasized what North Korea has to gain by giving up its nuclear weapons and rejoining the worldwide community - a subject he returned to on Twitter.

"That's a great example of hyperbole", he added.

Meanwhile, Spade's husband Andy wrote the following after her suicide: "Kate suffered from depression and anxiety for many years". Jada Pinkett Smith never shies away from sharing the personal ins and outs of everything-from her career and parenting to sex .

If it takes Dennis Rodman to break the ice, I bet he'd do it. It's hard to discern yet if anything concrete occurred. "I feel it's good".

"The way I interpret this first [Trump-Kim] meeting, which was surprising to everybody, is that it's like two boxers touching gloves. The real negotiations have yet to unfold", Republican Senator John Cornyn told VOA.

"The Chinese have probably been coaching Kim Jong Un to seek that as part of the nuclear negotiation goals", he told ABC.

However, South Korean officials said they had no prior knowledge of the end of military exercises, pointing out that they were "vital" to east Asian security.

Trump replied by praising Kim as a "tough guy". It wouldn't be easy to expect that North Korea would give up its nuclear programme and stockpiles.

The United States did, however, commit to suspending joint military exercises with South Korea, Trump told reporters before departing the summit site.

Trump has defended the agreement as a major step in dealing with the threat of nuclear-armed North Korea and said he believed Kim's government would start the process of living up to the agreement right away. If the United States and North Korea - these completely opposite social systems who have never trusted each other - actually do end up with a solid agreement; if the president can shake hands with a really nasty dictator at the price of making peace; is anything out of reach?

The leaders also invited each other to their respective countries and both leaders "gladly accepted", KCNA reported.
