Sieren's China: Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un choose peace

Donald Trump Kim Jong-un come togther for historic Ten things to know about the Singapore summit

President Trump meets with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in historic summit

"There has been unanimity in that set of objectives, and I'm heartened by that".

Trump said the video was "a version of what could happen and take place" in North Korea if Kim pursues a path of peace and disarmament. Already, North Korea has criticized the USA and South Korea's military drills, saying they're not helpful for peace talks. Donald Trump impersonators were on hand, as was the USA basketball star Dennis Rodman, who turned up to support his friend Kim Jong Un, but also peddled a cryptocurrency.

The report was interpreted as meaning the United States would grant rewards - such as sanctions relief - to North Korea as North Korea take steps to denuclearize, a process which the United States had adamantly opposed.

The US intelligence assessment of the nuclear and other military threats posed by North Korea remained unchanged despite Trump's and Moon's assertions about the North Korean nuclear threat being over, a senior US official responsible for studying the North Korean military said.

Pompeo also said he anticipates the USA would next speak to North Korean officials "fairly quickly after we return to our home countries", adding that he was "very confident" that some form of engagement between the two sides would take place in the next week.

The leaders signed a statement pledging to establish a new relationship.

Trump used Twitter posts to reject criticisms and say "great progress was made on the denuclearization of North Korea".

Pompeo also said he was "confident that we took a very good, significant step in Singapore" and that the USA and North Korea will work together to provide their citizens with the best results.

"Most certainly in the president's first term", he said, speaking to a pool of journalists in Seoul, South Korea, where he was meeting his South Korean and Japanese counterparts. It fell on Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to try to explain what Trump's incoherent boasting meant in the real world, where the signed agreement fell far short of a "deal", and North Korea's nuclear program is still a serious threat. "Verification is essential to that". "We're going to get denuclearization", Pompeo said.

Every single agreement North Korea has ever made about not developing nuclear weapons, not testing them, not testing missiles, dismantling nuclear facilities-at least ten of them, going back to 1985-they have violated all of them, sometimes only weeks later.

Search-Microsoft is planning to revamp the search experience across Office apps providing access to commands, content, and people. The update is for Office.com and Office 365 users, and will begin rolling out to business customers and consumers in June.

While Trump claimed a historic breakthrough at the most significant diplomatic event of his presidency, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, was more measured. "We're prepared to execute this once we're in a position that we can actually get to a place where we can do it". "There's a lot of work left to do".

Mark Castaldo, the boss of California-based Destiny Pictures, says he has no idea why a credit his company appeared at the start of the film.

"Let me assure you that "complete" encompasses verifiable in the minds of everyone concerned".

The lack of details contributed to an air of skepticism in Washington about what Trump accomplished.

"It's important that we don't lose sight of the fact that Kim Jong Un is a butcher and he is a butcher of his own people", Senator John Kennedy, a Louisiana Republican, said Tuesday. The leaders just show up to shake hands and smile for the cameras and try to look as if they like each other.

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

The summer exercise, Ulchi Freedom Guardian, consists mainly of computer simulations to hone joint decision-making and planning.

By referencing the "conflicting views", Moon appeared to be referring to Trump's unexpected promise to halt joint military exercises with South Korea, which the USA president called a "provocation" to the North. So he's a very smart guy.

Tokyo is working on arranging a meeting between Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and Kim, with one possibility being an Abe visit to Pyongyang around August, the Yomiuri newspaper reported.
