Read The Joint Statement From President Trump And Kim Jong Un

Bruce Klingner, a North Korea expert at the conservative Heritage Foundation, said the denuclearization pledge in the Trump statement is "diluted from the six-party talks provision, and there was no mention of North Korea moving towards complete, verifiable, irreversible denuclearization, as the administration had hinted".

Kim and Trump are presented as the central figures in the trailer, with the chance to remake the world and change history. U.S. Forces Korea said in a statement Tuesday it was unaware of any policy change.

The US president had an unusually light public schedule the day before the summit and holed up in his hotel the whole afternoon and evening - although he was tweeting very early on D-day and again on his way to the meeting.

It's a surreal image: Dennis Rodman, standing in Singapore, wearing a "Make America Great Again" hat and sunglasses, giving an interview through tears as he cheers for President Donald Trump. In agreeing to the summit, Trump risked granting Kim his long-sought recognition on the world stage in hopes of ending the North's nuclear program.

The president described the North Korean leader as a "very talented" negotiator and said their meeting was "honest, direct and productive".

"We had a historic meeting and made a decision to leave the past behind and we are about to sign the historic document", Kim said through a translator. "And they're not ready if they can not exercises". It committed North Korea to accept global inspections and stay in the non-proliferation treaty, under which its pursuit of a nuclear bomb was illegal.

Former U.S. ambassador Bill Richardson told VOA he is concerned about no verification of what the North Koreans will do about missile technology in the DPRK, no detail of nuclear reduction, the peace treaty and human rights. China's goal for decades has been to drive us out of Asia.

"You couldn't have a [more] stark difference between the last 25 years of handling this problem and the last 500 days", Gorka said. Mr Trump said he wanted to see U.S. troops withdraw from the South. In the statement, the leaders outlined four commitments: establishing relations, building a "lasting a stable peace regime on the Korean Peninsula", working toward denuclearization and recovering POW/MIA remains. Trump has dangled the prospect of economic investment in the North as a sweetener for giving up its nuclear weapons. "Think of it from the real estate perspective".

Language on North Korea's bombs was similar to what the leaders of North and South Korea came up with at their own summit in April. The best we can say is that this summit did bring the world back from the brink of another war on the Korean Peninsula. But in the hours before the summit, the White House unexpectedly announced Trump would depart earlier than expected.

Conservative House Republicans were unrepentant in their praise for the president for engaging with North Korea, a sharp reversal from many of their views on similar negotiations between President Barack Obama's Secretary of State John Kerry and Iran.

Efforts by previous presidents committed Pyongyang to far more detailed and specific restrictions, though the deals all ultimately failed. The president's comments and face-to-face meeting with Kim have sparked criticism that he could legitimize or embolden North Korea's regime. "If diplomacy doesn't move in the right direction, sanctions will increase".
