Why Kim leaves Singapore with real achievements

Score one for China, America's rival. -South Korea drills has been North Korea's "standard demand" for decades.

In return for the U.S. commitments, Kim Jong-un signed a joint statement committing to denuclearisation, but analysts say it was vaguely worded and included commitments Pyongyang had made several times.

While expressing cautious optimism about events of the past 48 hours, Bishop stressed the strength of the agreement between Trump and Kim Jong-un "will only be as good as the verification process that North Korea allows".

Trump said Kim agreed to shutter a missile engine testing site and to allow the return of remains of American service members lost in North Korea during the Korean War more than 60 years ago. Trump said: "That's true". "If the U.S.is prepared to make this promise to a brutal dictator, then how trustworthy is he going to be in maintaining a security commitment to his allies?"

"We had a historic meeting, and chose to leave the past behind", Kim said.

Trump told VOA the two leaders discussed North Korea's dismal human rights record and said he believes Kim has "a great feeling" for its citizens and "wants to do right by them".

U.S. President Donald Trump shakes hands with North Korea's leader Kim Jong Un at the Capella Hotel on Sentosa island in Singapore June 12, 2018.

Earlier, South Korea's Presidential Blue House said it needed "to find out the precise meaning or intentions" of Mr Trump's statement.

Yet Kimball is anxious by the hard history of negotiations with North Korea, combined with the lack of any timetable or road map for further steps in the latest agreement.

The lesson of today's government climbdown: we're likely heading for soft Brexit
Despite many Conservative MPs who backed Remain in the referendum, just two rebelled against the government on a meaningful vote. The issue seen as most likely to provoke a rebellion was that of giving MPs a "meaningful vote" on the final Brexit deal .

Given that Trump and his secretary of state, Mike Pompeo, and national security adviser, John Bolton, have signalled that they would accept nothing short of CVID, this is a giant omission. Both leaders had initially planned to leave the country on Wednesday.

Mr Trump and Mr Kim reached a broad agreement that North Korea would move toward denuclearising the Korean peninsula, while the United States committed to providing security guarantees and suspending military exercises with long-time ally South Korea.

At the summit, Trump emphasized what North Korea has to gain by giving up its nuclear weapons and rejoining the worldwide community - a subject he returned to on Twitter. "South Korean alliance", said Moon Seong-mook, a former South Korean military official and current head of the Unification Strategy Center in Seoul.

That statement, which Trump touted as "very comprehensive", was scant on details, including specific actions and a timeline for the North relinquishing its nuclear arsenal. We are yet to understand what North Korea means by denuclearisation.

Sen. Lindsey Graham does not have an issue with halting joint military exercises between the US and South Korea while discussions with North Korea continue.

Trump rejected the idea that the US was the loser in the talks. So number one we save money, a lot, and number two, it really is something that I think they [North Korea] very much appreciate.

The agreement said the two countries would co-operate towards "new relations", while the United States would provide "security guarantees" to North Korea.

China, meanwhile was effusive about the talks, with Foreign Minister Wang Yi saying the two sides were "creating a new history".
