President Donald J. Trump of the United States of America and Chairman Kim Jong Un of the State Affairs Commission of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) held a first, historic summit in Singapore on June 12, 2018. 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 is likely to leave this afternoon while Trump will depart tonight.
"The senior officials of the party and government sincerely wished Kim Jong Un good successes in the first summit meeting and talks between the DPRK and the U.S. and his safe return", the KCNA said.
"This is an important step in the effort to strip the Korean peninsula of nuclear weaponry", Netanyahu said of Trump's meeting with Kim.
The reaction from Seoul was one of uncertainty, especially over remarks made by the USA president during the summit in which he said he would put an end to joint military exercises with the South Koreans. "I believe this is a good prelude for peace".
The credit on the video said it was produced by Destiny Pictures, which disrupted the morning of Mark Castaldo, who owns a Los Angeles-based production company with the same name, albeit with a different logo than the one in the video. "Think of it from a real estate perspective".
Then there was Trump's freakish suggestion in his press conference that his negotiations with Kim would actually benefit the 100,000 Koreans living in Kim's prison camps. Which path will he choose?
Many North Korea watchers have noted that the Singapore summit agreement lacks substance, despite Trump touting it as "very comprehensive". One moment, one choice, what if? "I really don't care how generous we are as long as we don't go too far when it comes to our troop presence".
The US would suspend "provocative" war games it holds with South Korea.
He said about half of the cost is for security.
"I think he wants to de-nuke, without that, there's nothing to discuss".
Hours earlier as he sat alongside Kim at the signing ceremony, Trump said the two leaders "have developed a special bond" and that after their several hours of talks Tuesday and the signing of the agreement he thinks the USA relationship with North Korea "will be very different than in the past". "They're gonna put it together, and I think they're going to end up with a very strong country, and a country which has people - that they're so hard working, so industrious".
