How the Hill Reacted to the Trump-Kim Summit

"Singapore, the country of the epoch-making meeting much awaited by the whole world, was awash with thousands of domestic and foreign journalists and a large crowd of masses to see this day's moment which will remain long in history", KCNA noted. "The U.S. has yielded major concessions - the summit itself and the end of our defensive military exercises - in return for what appears to be a vague and undefined premise from the North Korean leader".

"Kim said he was pleased to meet with President Trump and his team from the United States and praised President Trump's will and aspiration to overcome the hostile past between the two countries, and to find realistic solutions to problems through communication and cooperation", part of the story said.

Pyongyang has reason to feel confident after the meeting which was a major coup for an isolated and heavily sanctioned regime that has long craved global legitimacy.

And as they emerged from the meal for a brief stroll together, Mr Trump appeared to delight in showing his North Korean counterpart the interior of "The Beast", the famed USA presidential limousine known for its high-tech fortifications. "We will be successful".

According to North Korean media, the North Korean culture suggests the younger ones should arrive earlier as a mark of respect.

Many lawmakers from both parties, while unready to declare the summit a diplomatic victory or defeat, remained skeptical the US could successfully negotiate a deal toward peace with Kim - but are letting the process play out.

It added that denuclearization on the Korean peninsula would be dependent on the two sides "refraining from antagonizing... each other out of mutual understanding".

The report added Trump said he "understood" and promised to halt joint U.S. "The world has taken a big step back from potential nuclear catastrophe!"

By the time he arrived at the Capella the following morning, Kim had begun to transform his image and pictures of his tour were plastered on the news pages of his state-run media back home in North Korea.

"President Trump committed to provide security guarantees to the DPRK, and Chairman Kim Jong Un reaffirmed his firm and unwavering commitment to complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula".

World powers from China to Japan, the European Union and Russian Federation welcomed its outcome - while cautioning it was only the first step towards resolving the nuclear stand-off with Pyongyang.

Sen. Cory Gardner cautioned that the summit "must be followed by multiple meetings to test North Korea's promises of denuclearization, which they have made in the past and then repeatedly violated".

The handshake marked the start of the summit between the leaders, and displayed a stark contrast from the insults that had previously been thrown out by both men in the months leading up to the sit-down meeting.

Republican Senator John Kennedy said, "Kim Jong Un is a butcher, and he is a butcher of his own people".

KCNA said the two leaders ate and walked together, "deepening friendly feelings" towards each other.

The agreement said the two countries would co-operate towards "new relations", while the USA would provide "security guarantees" to North Korea. Trump said: "That's true".

The meeting was also a success from a security and optics points of view: smiles were exchanged, in-depth discussions took place between cabinet members, nobody went off script and there were no security breaches, thanks to ironclad preparations by their Singaporean hosts.
