The Singapore summit is over. Let the bribery begin

The Singapore summit is over. Let the bribery begin

While no guarantees were produced at the summit over how or when Pyongyang would disarm, USA secretary of state Mike Pompeo warned that the U.S. would resume military exercises with South Korea if the North stops negotiating in good faith.

However, the South Korean president, Moon Jae-in, said the world, through the summit, had escaped the threat of war, echoing Trump's upbeat assessment of his meeting with Kim.

North Korean television, which broadcast news about the meeting days after it took place, showed images of Trump and Kim walking together and called them the "Supreme Leaders" of their countries.

Nevertheless, Mr. Trump tweeted on Wednesday, before the denuclearization process even begins, that Americans should "sleep well", because, in his words, North Korea was "no longer" the United States' "biggest and most unsafe problem".

-South Korea joint military exercises if talks between the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) and the United States continue.

Tokyo has reacted with concern at Trump's surprise announcement that military exercises with South Korea are to be halted, saying that such drills are "vital" for East Asian security.

Trump said Tuesday at the beginning of expanded discussions with aides from both countries that "We will solve a big problem" and "a big dilemma".

On Fox News' "America's Newsroom" Wednesday, Senator Marco Rubio, R-Fl., commented on the role of Congress after President Trump's North Korea summit.

North Korea reaffirmed previous promises to work towards the "complete denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula".

"I think he's going to do these things", Trump said. Pompeo returns late Thursday to the U.S.

"It is North Korea-through its nuclear and missile programs, aggressive behavior, and egregious human rights violations-that poses the greatest threat to peace".

Pompeo also stressed that there will be no lifting of sanctions, or any kind of economic benefits given to North Korea, . before its complete denuclearization.

But Trump's move had always been suggested by China, and Beijing was quick to applaud its announcement on Wednesday.

"Everybody wants to get out of North Korea".

Kang reaffirmed that South Korea's alliance with the U.S.is stronger than ever, . and that US forces will continue to play an important role on the Korean Peninsula. After the summit, North Korea's state-run media indicated that Mr. Trump would grant concessions before Pyongyang completes the denuclearization process.

CNN called it "an extraordinary display of respect from a United States president to a top officer of a hostile regime".
