At the Trump-Kim Summit, Human Rights Are on the Agenda

Shortly after the signing ceremony Kim left Singapore's Sentosa island.

The Air China Boeing 747 jet that flew North Korean leader Kim Jong Un from Pyongyang to Singapore on Sunday (June 10) was provided at the country's request, China's Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said on Monday (June 11).

"At the conclusion of the summit, President Trump will participate in a media availability before departing tomorrow at approximately 8 p.m. for the United States", the White House said.

Before signing what Trump described as a "comprehensive letter", Kim said the two leaders had a historic meeting "and chose to leave the past behind".

Kim could be seen smiling as he looked inside the vehicle.

They first met Tuesday for about 40 minutes alone, except for their translators, before bringing in delegations from their respective sides for a working lunch.

That is, experts suggest Pyongyang may only agree to give up its nukes in exchange for the US terminating its military presence in South Korea and ending its regional nuclear umbrella, a security arrangement in which Washington promises in-kind retaliation on behalf of close allies if they are attacked with nuclear weapons.

Internet speculation had the "B" representing everything from breakfast, brunch, bananas, bacon, beer, booze and even bitcoin. The American chain teased the change June 4 on Twitter , saying "For 60 pancakin' years, we've been IHOP ".

Professor John Hajek from the University of Melbourne's School of Languages and Linguistics said the US President was "doing all the talking" and had the "upper hand" when the two met for their historic meeting.

As I recently wrote, while certain sanctions on North Korea are discretionary, a key 2016 law specifically obligates the president to sanction people and entities complicit in human rights abuses in North Korea - not just those involved in weapons proliferation - and the Trump administration legally can't suspend sanctions more broadly unless North Korea implements key human rights reforms.

This is the first ever meeting of a sitting US President with a North Korean Supreme leader.

The video portrayed North Korea abandoning its nuclear weapons and being able to adopt Western-style markets, transportation systems and joining South Korea in the modern era.

The agreement states that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will be tasked with meeting with a high-level North Korean official "at the earliest possible date to implement the outcomes" of the summit.

After the lunch, Mr Pompeo said the U.S. team is looking forward to the summit tomorrow. But is sticking with U.S. sanctions against the North " In the meantime, the sanctions will remain in effect". "If diplomacy does not move in the right direction- and we are hopeful that it will continue to do so- those measures will increase".

Pompeo also said the United States is "prepared to take what will be security assurances that are different, unique that America has been willing to provide previously". It also said the USA committed to providing "security guarantees" to the North.

Despite the unprecedented rapprochement between the two countries, the North Koreans have maintained a tight security presence around their leader.
