Trump says he will halt Korea war games

US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un met in Singapore after months of tensions

US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un met in Singapore after months of tensions

But the North has long sought an end to the USA military presence in the South, where Washington has around 28,000 troops stationed to protect it from its neighbour.

Kim spent the day out of view, but was reportedly going on an evening tour of attractions on the city's waterfront, a source familiar with the plan told Reuters. It's going to start very quickly.

Despite the USA president's enthusiasm, the agreement signed by Trump and Kim contains no specific example of how the two sides will achieve the stated aim of "complete denuclearization".

"I said, 'Boy look at that view.' Wouldn't that would make a great condo?"

Yet Trump and Kim have yet to agree even on how to define denuclearization of the Korean peninsula - the stated goal of the meeting.

The joint statement itself is a list of very basic and aspirational goals, signaling that the the meeting and the agreement merely mark the beginning of long and complicated negotiations between the United States and Kim's brutal dictatorship. It was a awful thing, it was brutal, but a lot of people started to focus on what was going on, including North Korea.

But in the past, Mr Trump has been far more critical of Mr Kim's human rights record, claiming the dictator is leading one of the most brutal regimes in the world.

Summitry is hard work and Trump claimed he "had not slept for 25 hours" during his time in Singapore, which lasted just under 48.

Despite Trump's claim to have achieved something that eluded his predecessors, previous US administrations extracted more specific commitments from Pyongyang, only to see them breached.

During an interview with the Associated Press, Former New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson said he has resigned from an advisory panel trying to tackle the massive Rohingya refugee crisis, January 24, 2018, in Yangon, Myanmar. 'I feel really great.

He cited American college student Otto Warmbier, who was arrested by North Korean authorities in 2016 and died a year ago after being repatriated to the United States with severe brain damage.

Rodman said he was "naive when I went over there".

There have been plenty of talking points from the historic summit between Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un.

Uncertainty on the issue loomed especially large Tuesday morning in Washington, where long-time North Korea watchers are all too aware that Mr. Kim's father Kim Jong-il explicitly committed back in 2005 to "abandoning all nuclear weapons and existing nuclear programs", only to renege on the promise in the years that followed.

Veterans of Foreign Wars, a group that advocates on behalf of all veterans, had lobbied Trump ahead of the summit to address the POW/MIA (prisoner of war/missing in action) issue with Kim during their meeting. Kim twice meet Moon and also made two trips to China to meet with Chinese President Xi Jinping.

Kim said there would be a "major change" in the world. I am here to see it.
