How the Hill Reacted to the Trump-Kim Summit

Donald Trump Taunts the 'Haters and Losers' Ahead of Kim Jong-un Summit

U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korea's leader Kim Jong Un shake hands after signing documents during a summit at the Capella Hotel on the resort island of Sentosa, Singapore June 12, 2018.

The talks were originally scheduled for May based on an agreement reached at the summit between South Korean President Moon Jae-in and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un at Panmunjom on April 27. South Korea's presidential office has said it's trying to discern Trump's meaning and intent, but also that the allies should explore various ways to "further facilitate" dialogue with the North.

Mr Trump also announced a halt to wargames between the United States and South Korea and expressed a desire to bring USA troops home, which left a former South Korean general "speechless".

The joint annual U.S.

Democratic lawmakers pointed out that North Korea had often made similar statements in the past about "denuclearization", all the while developing nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles that could be capable of striking the US, Reuters reported. Ultimately, in the short term, at least while diplomacy continues, Trump's tweets seem to indicate he is ready to live with the fact that North Korea has nuclear weapons and potentially the capacity to fire them at the United States, in an implicit erosion of the USA strategic position.

"Despite its many flaws", Cha wrote, "the Singapore summit represents the start of a diplomatic process that takes us away from the brink of war".

Trump's Tuesday meeting with Kim produced a wave of United States concessions in exchange for vague, nonbinding promises from North Korea, but it did make nuclear war all but inconceivable at the present moment.




The military talks had been initially slated for May, but were postponed after the North called off another planned high-level meeting in protest against U.S.

At the briefing, Pompeo reiterated that the shared goal of the US, South Korea and Japan is to get North Korea to denuclearize not only completely, but also irreversibly and verifiably.

President Donald Trump on Wednesday claimed the parents of a Korean War soldiers asked for his help in returning the remains of their son during the 2016 presidential campaign. "North Korea has great potential for the future!"

"The most directly involved party in Korean Peninsula issues is us". -South Korean exercises appeared off-limits under the new guidance.

A US official told AFP that "major military exercises have been suspended indefinitely on the Korean peninsula".

USA officials said it was unclear what types of training involving US and South Korean troops might cross into Trump's now forbidden zone of "war games". He said a move to suspend them will be aimed at promoting peace, not rewarding the communist state.
