In earlier post-summit remarks, he congratulated Trump and Kim but also cautioned that "this is just a beginning and there may be many difficulties ahead, but we will never go back to the past again and never give up on this bold journey". "We are going to get complete denuclearization; only then will there be relief from the sanctions", he said.

On the joint U.S.

North Korea's leader Kim Jong Un during the U.S.

Trump replied by praising Kim as a "tough guy".

The talks, aimed at discussing ways of easing cross-border tensions, were to be held at the "truce village" of Panmunjom, on the border between the two countries. US officials said it was unclear what types of training involving USA and South Korean troops might cross into Trump's now forbidden zone of "war games".

Mr Pompeo has travelled to South Korea to brief the US's regional allies on the agreement, and on Mr Trump's surprise announcement that he was ending the routine US-South Korea military drills which have so angered North Korea.

In a series of tweets, Trump sought to take political credit for the summit but risked undermining the United States strategy in the region. -South Korean exercises appeared off-limits under the new guidance.

"The issue of South Korea-U.S. joint exercises is one that should be discussed between the military authorities between the two Koreas, and it will be going forward", Kang said.

By credibly threatening the United States with nuclear war, he won a one-on-one meeting with the American president - a longtime strategic goal of his family's regime.

Without military exercises, the massive installation of troops will wither.

Before the talks with Pompeo, Moon on Thursday hailed the summit as a great success.

"We believe that Kim Jong-un understands the urgency [of denuclearisation]", said Mr Pompeo. 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 U.S. strategic position.

The presentation bemused those of us packed into the press hall - we thought at first it was North Korean propaganda.

Trump seemed equally ecstatic. As he landed Wednesday in Washington following the summit, he declared on Twitter that America and the world can "sleep well tonight".

"The meeting on Monday in Singapore with respect to North Korea - that holds important potential for the peace and security of the world", Goodale told FOX Business' Stuart Varney Wednesday on "Varney & Co".

Trump left the discussions assured that Kim would begin dismantling his country's missile sites in the immediate future, telling ABC News that Kim "trusts me, and I trust him".

South Korea's five-member delegation is led by Major General Kim Do-gyun.

"I am. confident they understand that there will be in-depth verification", Pompeo said, adding that further US talks with North Korea on how and when it will end its nuclear program will resume "sometime in the next week". Tehran's government is still weighing whether it will stick by the accord or leave and potentially renounce the nuclear non-proliferation treaty - the accord North Korea ditched in 2003 before detonating its first bomb three years later.

By referencing the "conflicting views", Moon appeared to be referring to Trump's unexpected promise to halt joint military exercises with South Korea, which the U.S. president called a "provocation" to the North.

On the eve of the summit, Pompeo emphasized that sanctions would remain until North Korea delivered "CVID", and acronym for complete, verifiable, irreversible denuclearization.

"I find that question insulting and ridiculous and, frankly, ludicrous", Pompeo responded when asked about the lack of that wording in the agreement.
