Trump declares an end to the North Korean nuclear threat

"Has Kim fully disclosed his WMD inventory and what concessions is he asking for to take significant and verifiable steps toward denuclearization?"

The drill is designed in the spirit of the US-South Korean mutual defense treaty of 1953, the Pentagon said. "We're hopeful that we can achieve that in the two and half years".

Ordinary North Koreans consistently voice unequivocal support for the leadership when speaking to foreign media. "A long trip, but everybody can now feel much safer than the day I took office".

North Korea could begin giving up its weapons today if it wanted to, but it instead has insisted on staging performances of denuclearization rather than on inviting global inspectors to verify its progress.

In an interview with Fox News' Brett Baier on Air Force One as he was leaving Singapore, Trump brushed aside Kim Jong Un's oppression of his people, according to transcriptions by The Hill. North Korea is a real and present threat.

Critics said the unprecedented encounter between Kim and Trump was more style than substance, producing a document short on specifics about the key issue of Pyongyang's atomic weapons. He said negotiations would recommence "in the next week or so".

On the way forward, Mr Pompeo said, "I don't know exactly what the timing will be for our next conversation with the North Koreans". The details of how and when the North would denuclearize appear yet to be determined, as are the nature of the unspecified "protections" Trump is pledging to Kim and his government. He and Mr Trump met on a red carpet in front of a backdrop of equal numbers of United States and North Korean flags at the Capella hotel, a luxury resort on Singapore's Sentosa Island.

"The President's comments [were] very positive and the Statement touches on a new relationship with North Korea, and end to the Korean War, complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula and recovering POW/MIA remains - all positive commitments", he said. -South Korea military exercises could be put back on if talks with Pyongyang do not progress. "So he sets the meeting, he has this sit-down, he hears what he wants to hear - blah, blah, blah".

Pompeo was scheduled to travel next to Beijing before returning to Washington.

Trump's Tuesday meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un produced a wave of United States concessions in exchange for vague, nonbinding promises from North Korea.

"It is the only dialogue that matters", Trump wrote to Kim late last month.

'We stopped playing those war games that cost us a fortune, ' he told the network.

But ahead of his sit down with Kim, Trump had said he would gauge whether the North Korean leader was honest with "just my touch, my feel".

North Korea is believed to possess more than 50 nuclear warheads, with its atomic program spread across more than 100 sites constructed over decades to evade global inspections.

Trump has repeatedly touted his role in bringing the reclusive North Korea to the negotiating table, a feat that he says his predecessors were unable to pull off. But about 30 percent said they approved of his handling of North Korea.

But he said that was no longer the case, and everyone can "sleep well tonight".

The meeting was also a "defining moment" for Trump, leader of "the world's police at the moment", said Cabalza.

That claim appears to contradict an assertion made by Trump in a press conference following his meeting with Kim that the North Korean leader would begin implementing the terms of the agreement "right away" when "he lands" back in Pyongyang. Trump cast that decision as a cost-saving measure, but also called the exercises "inappropriate" while talks continue.

Less than a year before their historic summit, Trump was threatening "fire and fury" on North Korea and publicly deriding Kim as "Little Rocket Man".

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo arrived at Osan Air Base south of Seoul from Singapore early Wednesday evening.
