Trump says United States to stop war games with S. Korea

  • Trump leaving summit with North Korea early as talks go quicker than planned

Throughout the summit that could chart the course for historic peace or raise the specter of a growing nuclear threat, both leaders expressed optimism. Friend, and ally of Kim, former basketball player Dennis Rodman (bottom right), also hinted at the North Korean's proficiency in English. Today is a great day for everybody, Singapore, Tokyo, China, everybody ... it's a great day. The two then signed a joint statement. Last year, that exercise, called Ulchi-Freedom Guardian, involved about 17,500 USA troops and focused heavily on computer-simulated exercises. "But the impulse, as far as we understand, has been given". "It's possible. We're dealing at a high level, a lot of things can change a lot of things are possible".

Trump said later that they had run out of time.

Meeting with staged ceremony on a Singapore island, Trump and Kim came together for a summit that seemed just unthinkable months ago, clasping hands in front of a row of alternating US and North Korean flags, holding a one-on-one meeting, additional talks with advisers and a working lunch.

It will be the first ever meeting between a sitting US President and North Korean leader.

In their joint deceleration, Trump and Kim vowed to continue building "a lasting and robust peace regime on the Korean Peninsula".

U.S. President Donald Trump's declaration on Tuesday that he meant to end joint military exercises with South Korea took South Korean and U.S. military officials by surprise.

The other three points were broad, committing the United States and North Korea to establishing new relations "in accordance with the desire of the peoples of the two countries for peace and prosperity"; and joint efforts to establish peace on the Korean Peninsula. Trump also provided no clear idea of the kind of "security guarantees" it's willing to offer to Pyongyang.

Russian Federation is prepared to help in implementing the deal toward the complete denuclearization of the Korean peninsula - and hopes settling the nuclear crisis will spark normal economic cooperation, RIA news agency quoted Ryabkov as saying.


Thus, it's hard to see the outcome of the summit as anything but a series of motherhood statements with little substance.

The overwhelming clicking of camera shutters made it hard to hear what the two leaders were saying to each other as they headed into their momentous summit.

Given Kim only repeated vague commitments to pursue the "denuclearization of the Korean peninsula", some experts questioned whether Trump was making excessive concessions. Thus the summit undoubtedly helped the Korean regime partially lift the veil of its profound global isolation. Since 1953, a ceasefire has made that conflict largely symbolic, with suffering limited to South Koreans killed in provocative strikes, and the North Koreans who suffer in a gulag state or die fleeing it.

He said he expected the Trump-Kim summit to "go fairly well" but added, "people should not expect too much for the first time".

"We should be working diligently to transform North Korea and our relationship with it", he tweeted.

Trump calls Kim "a very talented man", may invite him to the White House.

"We'll meet again. We will meet many times". For Kim, that's already a huge win on behalf of his ostracized state, without giving up a thing. Over the coming months, the North Korean regime will explore its next move in chess-like, technical, and potentially drawn-out negotiations towards a final and enduring agreement.
