Landmark Trump, Kim summit kickstarts

Landmark Trump, Kim summit kickstarts

Rodman has faced ridicule and criticism for his trips to North Korea, which some USA politicians and activists view as serving only as fodder for North Korean propaganda.

The U.S. will keep economic sanctions in place until North Korea eliminates its nuclear weapons capability, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said, delivering a stern message to Pyongyang ahead of Tuesday's historic summit between President Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un. Trump said at a press conference that he will be ending joint military exercises between the United States and South Korea.

Kim Jong Un appeared upbeat at the prospects for peace on the peninsula after the summit.

And on whether those verifying North Korean compliance were going to be American or worldwide, Trump said, "A combinations of both".

The president had refused for weeks to answer whether he had communicated with the Kim in the run-up to their historic meeting in Singapore.

US President Donald Trump arrived at the venue just 60 seconds before the summit was to begin. Top of the line, very good.

The handshake, the menu, the positioning of flags - every aspect of the meeting between US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has been dissected and analyzed in the world's media. "Good relationship", said Trump to reporters during a break.


In the hours before the summit began, Trump expressed optimism about prospects for the first-ever meeting of sitting United States and North Korean leaders, while Pompeo injected a note of caution whether Kim would prove to be honest about his willingness to denuclearise. Trump then directed Kim to walk down a hallway, where they briefly spoke.

Trump also said he would "love" to invite Kim to the White House.

Members of the U.S. delegation, including USA secretary of state Mike Pompeo, right, and John Bolton, national security adviser, left, and North Korean advisers watch a television screen showing the meeting.

"We hope the summit will be a success and bring us a complete denuclearisation, peace and a new era" in relations between the two Koreas and the United States, South Korean President Moon Jae-in said. But is sticking with United States sanctions against the North " In the meantime, the sanctions will remain in effect". "Both the American as well as the North Koreans are pleased with the arrangements, we're all set to go and things will start happening within the next 24 hours". He added that he suspected he "somewhat had something to do with this North Korean situation".

Details were not shared about how the discussions have progressed so far and Trump and Kim have yet to meet face-to-face.

The U.S. will move to tighten the punishing measures if diplomacy fails, he added.
