North Korea Summit: Best Donald Trump & Kim Jong-un Memes

"We had a historic meeting and chose to leave the past behind and we are about to sign the historic document", Kim said through a translator. A quick answer: Probably not.

The document the two leaders signed did not include details of how and when North Korea would denuclearize, nor did it spell out exactly what "security guarantees" the United States would provide to North Korea.

The North's state media framed Tuesday's summit as a win for Pyongyang as it listed concessions made by Trump, with North Korea's official party newspaper Rodong Sinmun dubbing the summit in Singapore "the meeting of the century" on its front page.

"We are going to get out of the war games that cost so much money", he said referring to the USA participation in joint military exercises with South Korea. The two will hold a one-on-one meet, with translators only, an expanded meeting with aides and a working lunch, according to the White House.

Moon issued a statement after the summit calling it a "huge step forward" toward peace that "helped break down the last remaining Cold War legacy on Earth".

Under the deal, the North retains its nuclear warheads, the missiles to launch them and has not agreed to any specific process to get rid of them.

North Korea has celebrated the Trump-Kim summit as a great win for the country, with state media reporting that the USA intends to lift sanctions.

"High expectations were met by low results", said Nam Sung-wook, a North Korea expert at Seoul's Korea University.

Pence also touted diplomatic improvements with North Korea under the Trump administration, noting that there have been no missile tests in seven months and citing the inter Korean peace summits and the return of three US hostages.

The United States hopes to achieve "major disarmament" by North Korea within the next 2-1/2 years, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Wednesday, seeking to give assurances after a summit this week that Pyongyang will eventually give up its nuclear weapons.

Most of all, I think they feel relief - relief they would not have felt, and certainly not to the same degree, if the Democrats hadn't drummed up hysteria about an impending war with North Korea.

One showed a smiling Kim shaking hands with Trump's hawkish National Security Advisor John Bolton, who has previously advocated military action against the North, which in turn has referred to him as "human scum".

North Korea has been an isolated nation since it first divided from South Korea after the end of World War II in 1945.

The U.S. has stationed combat troops in South Korea since the end of the Korean War in the 1950s and has used them in a variety of drills.

U Sung Tak, 79, said the future was looking "bright" because Kim was "leading the world's political trend on the Korean peninsula, steering the wheel of history". "We've legitimized a brutal dictator who's starved his own people", the Senate's top Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer said.

To some commentators, Trump's choice of language was a major problem.

Rocky Kim, 38, fled North Korea in his early 20s in 2003, and made his way to Canada, where he now runs a heating and ventilation company in Toronto. But he kept trying to reach out to North Korea, and eventually found a role as a mediator after Kim offered in January to send a delegation to the South Korean Winter Olympics.
