  • North Korean media praises Trump-Kim summit as 'meeting of the century'

"We had a historic meeting and made a decision to leave the past behind", Kim said as he and Trump signed the joint statement, adding, "The world will see a major change".

Going into the historic Singapore summit, it was quite well-known that President Trump eschews briefing notes and lectures from his aides.

"Kim Jong Un and Trump had the shared recognition to the effect that it is important to abide by the principle of step-by-step and simultaneous action in achieving peace, stability and denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula", state-run Korean Central News Agency said, Reuters reported.

Via Congressional Quarterly foreign policy reporter Rachel Oswald, a reporter questioning Pompeo about talks with North Korea asked him how he could make sure the country had committed to allowing inspectors in to verify denuclearization when there was nothing about verifying disarmament in the joint statement signed by both countries.

Trump's shock announcement of a stop to war games with Seoul will have come as an added bonus as Beijing has always eyed the military exercises in its backyard warily.

Xi met twice with Kim before Singapore and retains a strong influence on the situation - China even lent Kim a plane to get to the summit.

Some analysts are likely to see the comments as part of a worrying trend since North Korea showed no public sign at the summit or since that it is now willing to implement the complete, irreversible and verifiable destruction of its nuclear programs.

During his return, Trump spoke with South Korean Prime Minister Moon Jae-in and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. After all, if there is no threat, why would the North Koreans need to give up their arsenal?

"As expected, coverage of Kim summit with Donald Trump is plastered across first four pages of North Korea's main Rodong Sinmun".

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

Trump said top officials including hawkish National Security Advisor John Bolton would next week be "going over the details to get this stuff done".
