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

"We are working with South Korea, Japan, China to a lesser extent".

It follows a day of historic talks at Singapore's Capella Hotel, on Sentosa Island - the first meeting between a sitting US President and a North Korean leader. A quick answer: Probably not.

US critics of the deal said it was short on details and that Trump had made too many concessions to Kim, especially the USA leader's unexpected announcement that the United States is ending its military exercises with South Korea, long an irritant to North Korea.

Speaking briefly hours after Kim Jong Un and Trump held historic talks in Singapore, Abe also said he was pleased that the U.S. leader had raised the emotive issue of Japanese abducted by Pyongyang.

"We save a fortune by not doing war games", Trump tweeted Wednesday, "as long as we are negotiating in good faith - which both sides are!"

"We signed a joint statement that is an unwavering commitment to complete denuclearisation of North Korea".

In Pyongyang, commuters crowded round the spread of newspapers - the first they had seen of the summit, for majority, reported.

He acknowledged that many difficulties are likely to lie ahead but vowed to work together with the U.S., North Korea and others to bring lasting peace to the Korean Peninsula.

According to the Washington Post, North Korea's definition of "denuclearization" is different from Trump's.

North Korea, Trump said Tuesday, has agreed to destroy a major missile engine testing site.

In his post-summit press conference, Mr Trump made the surprise announcement that the U.S. would halt joint military exercises with its security ally Seoul - something long sought by Pyongyang, which claims the drills are a rehearsal for invasion.

"The vague language on denuclearization is not a breakthrough, it is a boilerplate reiteration of past statements", she said, adding: "It is far too early in the process for Trump to declare success". There is no longer a Nuclear Threat from North Korea.

"Why did South Korea and the USA form an alliance and stage military drills before the nuclear crisis flared?" The Singapore summit set out broad goals to be met in the coming months while the Iran deal, signed by President Barack Obama in 2015 and approved by seven nations, was an imperfect end to 18 months of negotiations, they say.

"Yeah, but so have a lot of other people done some really bad things", Mr. Trump said.

There was no word immediately after the Trump-Kim meeting of any change in their plans to return home on June 13. Trump later interacted with media persons from across the world covering the event.

President Trump speaks out about the summit to Bret Baier.

Instead, Abe said he was determined to hold direct talks with Kim to resolve the issue.

He later lashed out at media coverage of his meeting with North Korean dictator Kim Jon Un, some of which has raised questions about how much was gained during the meeting in Singapore.

Pompeo, who flew to Seoul to brief South Korean leaders, said the brief, four-point joint statement that emerged from the summit did not encapsulate all the progress the USA and North Korea had made.

"They're going to get rid of their nuclear weapons", Trump said. Trump cast the decision as a cost-saving measure, but also called the exercises "inappropriate" while talks continue.
