Trump declares an end to the North Korean nuclear threat

  • President Trump meets with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in historic summit

What if America suffers buyer's remorse and the president (or perhaps the next president) reneges, and Kim finds that he is as vulnerable as was Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi, whose fate national security adviser John Bolton has made clear he would happily assign to the North Korean leader? Trump cast the decision as a cost-saving measure, but also called the exercises "inappropriate" while talks continue.

The secretary of state dismissed a report by North Korean state media that Mr Trump and Mr Kim had agreed to a "step-by-step" process of nuclear dismantling.

In turn, Trump has promised to halt joint military exercises with South Korea's forces. Trump's announcement appeared to catch the Pentagon and officials in Seoul off guard, and some South Koreans were alarmed. "I got them after we had signed the agreement".

Russian Federation has encouraged de-escalation talks between the U.S. and North Korea.

Trump's tweets pointed to one of the chief gains at the summit from the U.S. point of view - that its scheduling and the establishing of a relationship between the President and Kim have eased fears that the two sides are on a slide toward a disastrous war.

Despite the confusion and disappointment among some, the summit managed to, for a time at least, reset a relationship that has always been characterized by bloodshed and threats. Moreover, Kim gets what he wants immediately; Trump must wait to see if, when, how, and how quickly the North Koreans terminate their nuclear program.

The president can not be accused of going too far out on a limb here, however: The sanctions against North Korea remain in force.

On human rights, Trump said Tuesday's meetings only very briefly touched on the topic but that the two sides would discuss it more in the future. "No longer - sleep well tonight!" The poll found that Republicans were twice as likely as Democrats to say that the meeting lowered the threat of nuclear war, and they were three times as likely to say that both sides would follow through on their commitments. But about 30 percent said they approved of his handling of North Korea.

North Korean viewers had to wait nearly 20 minutes into the program for Trump's first appearance.

Trump's move to meet with Kim has been hailed by world leaders as a great step toward peace, and Trump's stated goal in taking the meeting was to disarm North Korea.

A good recent example of Trump's hot-and-cold temper came the day before the Kim summit.

The U.S. leader stressed that existing U.S. sanctions will remain in place until North Korean nuclear weapons "are no longer a factor".

Pyongyang in return "commits to work toward complete denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula". KCNA also reported that Trump had expressed his intention to lift sanctions "over a period of goodwill dialogue" between the two countries.

Jang-ho, like you said, the two leaders' meeting is still making the headlines around the world.

Wang, however, appeared to issue a warning to the USA on trade disputes, saying the nations have two options, one is "cooperation" and a "win-win" scenario. The next scheduled major exercise, involving tens of thousands of troops, normally would be held in August.

Pompeo agreed, saying "We've seen power when China and the USA work together and don't treat the relationship as a zero sum". USA military has deployed four F-22 stealth fighter jets to the Korean Peninsula as another response to North Korea's nuclear and missile threats.
