Trump rebuked by parents of man tortured in North Korea - International

Shares decline after Trump Kim summit halts without a deal

Meanwhile, a senior Chinese Communist Party foreign affairs official, Yang Jiechi, spoke with US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo about the summit on the phone, the foreign ministry said.

North Korea's foreign minister says Pyongyang's position will not change even if the U.S. seeks further talks.

The North's Korean Vice Foreign Minister Choe Son-hui also said leader Kim "may have lost his enthusiasm for a deal between the North and the US down the road". Kim and his evil regime are responsible for unimaginable cruelty and inhumanity.

After coming back to the J. W. Marriot Hotel, Trump told the press conference that Kim had a certain vision which was not exactly the same as his, though their visions got "much closer" than they were a year ago. "I have high regard for President Trump, who has expressed his commitment to continuing talks and optimistic views", he said.

Trump's statement provoked immediate criticism from human rights advocates and US lawmakers.

The Chinese Foreign Ministry refused to comment on reports that Kim might meet Chinese President Xi Jinping and discuss the results of his meeting with Trump.

The summit was widely expected to be focused on how to exchange concrete denuclearization steps North Korea could take and "corresponding" reciprocal concessions the US could provide in return, such as easing sanctions.

Following the Hanoi summit, Trump said that he chose to walk away from the meeting after the North Korean leader demanded full sanctions relief before denuclearization.

Son - I won't give up on Spurs title dream
Of course it's a very hard place to go against a good side but I think with how we're playing we have a good chance to win. In the last 10 or 12 games you must be strong".

Both Kim and Trump, meanwhile, left the summit looking full of optimism that a deal would be struck in the future.

"He tells me that he didn't know about it, and I will take him at his word", Trump told reporters. They said "no excuses or lavish praise can change that".

Fred Warmbier described to Fox News in 2017 Otto's condition when he returned: making an "involuntary, inhuman sound", "staring blankly into space, jerking violently", and was blind and deaf, with his head shaved. North Korea, which has previously tried to explain Warmbier's death as being caused by botulism, did not participate in the case.

"I support the president's effort to denuclearize them, but I do not have a misbelief of who this leader is", he said, speaking of Kim. Warmbier died soon after his return in June 2017.

"I got the impression that our State Affairs Commission Chairman comrade may have lost his enthusiasm for a deal between the North and the USA down the road", she said.

In December, the Warmbier family won a US$500 million (S$670 million) judgment in federal court against North Korea, with a judge ruling that the Kim regime was responsible for the torture and extrajudicial killing of Otto Warmbier. The White House did not immediately respond today to a request for comment.

"Otto should have never been arrested in the first place and Kim is responsible for that decision and everything that subsequently happened", said Phil Robertson, deputy Asia director for Human Rights Watch.
