Kim summit signals new breakthrough and echoes past problems

Kim Jong-un met with Donald Trump in Singapore on Tuesday

Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe spoke to Donald Trump after the summit, saying there was "great meaning in Chairman Kim's clearly confirming to President Trump the complete denuclearisation".

Melissa Hanham of the US-based Center for Nonproliferation Studies said on Twitter that North Korea had "already promised to do this many times", adding the two sides "still don't agree on what "denuclearization" means".

So, when Kim flew to Singapore this week for his historic summit with President Donald Trump, the toilet came with him, with his staff keeping it under close guard so nothing leaked out, so to speak.

President Donald Trump said he trusts Kim Jong Un and that he has received the same trust in return following a historic sit-down with the North Korean leader.

Mr Trump said he urged Mr Kim and other North Korean officials to watch the four-minute video during the Singapore summit.

Though acknowledging that there are no details yet of the North Korean denuclearization plan, Gold said it will likely not include the right to enrich uranium, or a "sunset clause" whereby restrictions on nuclear development would be removed after a certain time - which were both parts of the JCPOA, and key reasons for Trump's opposition to it.

Conservative House Republicans were unrepentant in their praise for the president for engaging with North Korea, a sharp reversal from many of their views on similar negotiations between President Barack Obama's Secretary of State John Kerry and Iran.

News of the decision to halt the drills stoked concern in Japan, with Defense Minister Itsunori Onodera calling joint exercises and the USA military presence in South Korea "vital" to East Asian security.

The United States and the DPRK commit to establish new U.S. -DPRK relations in accordance with the desire of the peoples of the two countries for peace and prosperity.

The sense of fun in the reporting also contrasts with the more sober way in which the North Korean media would usually handle an official trip. "But today, we are showing our dignity as an independent nation in front of the whole world", said Lieutenant-Colonel Hwang Myong Jin.

Trump said Tuesday the summit has helped bring the world back from "nuclear catastrophe".

If confirmed, the reported deal could be seen as a concession by Trump since USA officials - and the president himself - had called for the North to take swift and clear disarmament measures before receiving any rewards.

According to the spokesman, the meeting also enhanced the building of an enduring peace and stability, the denuclearisation efforts in the Korean Peninsula, as well as recovery and repatriation of Prisoners of War/Missing in Action.

"It's very unfair to our farmers, and it's very unfair to the people of our country", Trump said Tuesday. The North has long blamed the surrounding tense security environment on Washington's "hostile policy" toward it.

North Korean state media has also said President Trump had agreed during the summit to lift sanctions against the North as well as providing security guarantees.
