Trump on Kim: Without exchange of insults 'we wouldn't have been here'

Donald Trump then guided Kim Jong-un to the library where the one-on-one meeting was to take place.

"Although not part of the joint declaration, Mr Trump said after the summit that sanctions "will come off" once the United States is sure that the nukes are no longer a factor". But there have been slight differences in recent comments among senior US officials as to whether that means North Korea must first complete denuclearization - and have it verified - or if some goodwill steps would be enough. The US ignored that proposal.

The parents of Otto Warmbier, the American college student who died after being released from a North Korean prison past year, thanked President Donald Trump for the kind words about their son he gave after his historic summit with North Korea's leader. "And the only way to do that was to successfully complete its nuclear deterrence, which they announced they did at the end of previous year". US President Donald Trump arrived at the venue just 60 seconds before the summit was to begin.

He also noted that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has clearly been identified to lead future negotiations with a North Korean counterpart and that Mr. Trump separately said National Security Adviser John R. Bolton "will be working on the denuclearization issue, which is very positive". "The second thing is that we have in the United States a leader that is not part of the traditional neoliberal establishment and is kind of naive to U.S. geopolitical interests in the region".

Trump also called the war games "provocative" and "inappropriate", echoing language both Beijing and Pyongyang have used to characterise the annual war games that have been conducted for decades. "We will be saving a tremendous amount of money". The current leader's father, Kim Jong Il, was a longtime movie buff who had thousands of titles in his film collection and once led North Korea's ministry of propaganda. "Triumphant moment for Kim and North Korea that will become fodder for art, posters, stamps", tweeted Jean H. Lee, director of the Korea Center at the Wilson Center.

When Singaporean Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong visited the global media center for the summit at F1 Pit Building on Sunday, he said it will cost the city state "around 20 million Singaporean dollars" (W16.1 billion, US$1=W1,078) to host the "historic summit".

However, Kim has made some significant concessions as well.

If Kim launches a ballistic missile, conducts a nuclear test or impedes the verification Trump that promised in his news conference would be forthcoming, he will have forfeited his last chance. It's so sparse.' But the more that I looked at it, I realized that the agreement, when it's stripped of all extraneous details...

"You know, it was sort of interesting because I noticed some of the press.and I'm not even knocking them, because honestly they've been treating me very good on this subject. I mean, they're going to be getting rid of sites".

Highlighting the continued differences in the two countries' views of the denuclearization process, the report also said that they had agreed on a "step-by-step" approach.
