Kim-Trump summit making headlines in global media

DONALD Trump's historic summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un was unquestionably a success - for Mr Kim.

The President tweeted: "Everybody can now feel much safer than the day I took office". "Of those alive today, only a small number will leave a lasting impact- and only the very few will make decisions or take actions that renew their homeland and change the course of history", his White House repeated in a propaganda video presented to Kim on an iPad at their first meeting.

Late previous year, for example, she announced North Korea's test of what it said was a hydrogen bomb, telling viewers it was a "perfect success".

Trump and Kim met in Singapore on Tuesday.

"President Trump has been incredibly clear about the sequencing of denuclearization and relief from the sanctions", Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told reporters after meeting South Korea's president and Japan's foreign minister in Seoul.

When his son, Kim Jong Il, died in 2011, it was Ri - clad in black funeral clothes and her voice quavering - who delivered the news to North Koreans.

Even while buckling under the USA administration's "maximum pressure" policy of energetic sanctions expansion and implementation - a policy that is now dead in the water after the summit - Kim was able to complete a sufficiently credible nuclear deterrent to force the United States to the negotiating table.

On the joint U.S. To the contrary, the conciliatory United States moves will enable and accelerate the implementation of inter-Korean peace.

Pompeo, the former Central Intelligence Agency director, planned to fly to Beijing later Thursday to update the Chinese government about the talks.

While Trump was flying back to Washington D.C. aboard Air Force One, North Korean state media began reporting its version of events at the summit, including an apparent pledge by Trump to stop joint military exercises with South Korea while a nuclear accord is negotiated.

The joint statement released Tuesday was scant on the details, leaving the agreement between Trump and Kim vague.

Historic meeting in Singapore
The official said Trump and Kim would hold a one-on-one meeting on Tuesday that could last up to two hours. Past nuclear deals have crumbled over North Korea's reluctance to open its doors to outsiders.

By claiming that the North Korean nuclear threat has disappeared, Trump also risks weakening the USA negotiating position in talks on denuclearization that were mandated by the summit and will be led from the U.S. side by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

Despite the confusion and disappointment among some, the summit managed to, for a time at least, reset a relationship that has always been characterized by bloodshed and threats. Those two words - and the lack of any mention of "complete, verifiable, irreversible" disarmament - could signal to world leaders that Kim will not be forced to abandon his nuclear program, said Adam Mount, a senior fellow with the Federation of American Scientists in Washington.

Pompeo said he is confident that North Korea understands there will be in-depth verification of the denuclearization process.

After calling the dictator a "tough guy", "smart", and someone who "loves his people", Trump shrugged off a question about his human rights abuses, echoing his remark previous year that while Russian president Vladimir Putin is a killer, "There are a lot of killers. No longer - sleep well tonight!"

Of the world's eight known nuclear powers beyond North Korea, three - India, Pakistan and Israel - emerged outside a formal worldwide arms control framework. "President (Barack) Obama said that North Korea was our biggest and most risky problem".

Pompeo insisted North Korea was committed to giving up its nuclear arsenal but said it would "be a process, not an easy one".

Moon has championed engagement with the North, and the agreement's language on North Korea's nuclear program was similar to what the leaders of North and South Korea came up with at their own summit in April.

That discussion between Putin and Trump reportedly happened in summer 2017.

The U.S. has stationed combat troops in South Korea since the end of the Korean War in the 1950s and has used them in a variety of drills.
