North Korea agrees to ‘complete denuclearization’ at summit, but details are few

He said "to solve this problem, of course, we need to achieve denuclearisation and complete denuclearisation", Trump's main demand that North Korea should dismantle its nuclear weapons programme.

"We also hope that the resolution of the Korean Peninsula issue will take into account and address our concerns about proliferation linkages extending to India's neighbourhood", it said in a statement, in an apparent reference to North Korea's alleged nuclear proliferation linkages with Pakistan.

Amid the growing mood for reconciliation, the possibility has emerged that Seoul and Washington could consider scaling back the regular annual drills, including the summertime Ulchi Freedom Guardian (UFG). We will be saving a tremendous amount of money. "I've said it from day one: I think the fact that people really didn't realize what I was actually going to North Korea for", he said.

"The Department of Defence continues to work with the White House, the interagency, and our allies and partners on the way forward following the US/(North Korea) summit", Pentagon spokesperson Chris Sherwood said. Mattis' chief spokeswoman, Dana W. White, told reporters he was "in full alignment" with Trump and had been consulted in advance on all aspects of the Singapore talks.

The South Korean government also appeared caught off guard.

Asked about the issue after the meeting, President Trump said he'd been lobbied about the issue even as a presidential candidate.

In response to Trump's suggestion that an agreement to formally end the Korean War might take place soon, Nam said the Moon administration would not hasten the process and that there was "no timeframe" set for the process. A favored US slogan in South Korea is "ready to fight tonight".

Still, he credited the summit for starting a diplomatic process between North Korea and the United States. Nam said Seoul welcomed the news that President Trump had "sufficiently expressed" his trust in Kim.

On the campaign trail Trump argued that a combined AT&T/Time Warner was "too much concentration of power in the hands of too few". And in order to stay competitive, AT&T's CEO Randall Stephenson said during the trial that it needed a big deal to survive.

The Commander-in-Chief spoke with Hannity just hours after his face-to-face meeting with Kim Jong Un; explaining his use of heated language when describing the communist leader, whom he referred to at the United Nations as a little "Rocket Man".

Trump's statement was portrayed by critics as an unreciprocated concession. After years of building a friendship with Kim through multiple visits to Pyongyang and their shared love of basketball, Rodman suggested that he played a supporting role in laying the groundwork that ultimately led to the summit by bringing "awareness" to North Korea.

Even some Republicans in Congress seemed uneasy.

Although Rodman is friendly with Trump and Kim and wants peace between the two countries, he said he has another goal.

Trump also seemed annoyed that US bomber aircraft make six-plus hour flights from the Pacific island of Guam to the Korean peninsula as part of its exercise routine.

"But still, a large number of South Koreans are maintaining a healthy skepticism toward North Korea". "I know a lot about airplanes; it's very expensive".

Trump added, however, that "I hope, at the appropriate time after the sanctions kick in - and they are brutal on what we put on Iran - I hope they come back and negotiate a real deal. The plus one no longer exists and, under these circumstances, we have to wait and see how these six countries will react to this agreement". "I like the culture and he gave me the opportunity to get to know him".
