Trump wants to stop provocative 'war games' with South Korea

North Korea agrees to work towards dumping its nukes in historic peace agreement 'Very Disappointing': Ex-CIA Deputy Chief Nails Why Prior Agreements with NK Were 'Stronger' And 'More Encompassing' than Trump's

North Korea regularly calls the military exercises provocative preparations for a northward invasion, and numerous scariest standoffs in recent years on the Korean Peninsula have happened when the drills were being staged.

When Trump and Kim wrapped up their history-making summit at a luxury hotel in Singapore by signing what many observers say is "no more than a symbolic" agreement, it reinforced the role of Beijing - Pyongyang's closest ally and largest trading partner - according to analysts.

"We hope that the outcomes of the US-DPRK Summit will be implemented, thus paving the way for lasting peace and stability in the Korean Peninsula", the ministry said. Trump did not mention human rights in his opening remarks at the news conference that followed the two leaders' meeting, giving only a vague answer to a reporter's question about whether his legitimization of Pyongyang betrayed North Korean human rights victims. "We don't have high expectations, although we have high hopes", she said. Every time the survey has been conducted, the greatest support has been for "continue diplomatic efforts to get North Korea to suspend its nuclear program". "The proposal for a declaration ending the war was just an attempt to speed up the denuclearisation process by North Korea", Chung said. The agreement required Iran to curb its uranium enrichment in exchange for relief from worldwide sanctions.

Israeli ministers, meanwhile, have welcomed the Trump-Kim summit for the message it sends to Iran. Dems lack heir apparent this time MORE and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un agreed to adopt a "step-by-step" approach to denuclearizing the country. "I will call him shortly - maybe before I land", Trump said.

Although Trump was quick to declare success for the unprecedented summit with Kim Jong Un marked by handshakes and smiles, experts said a joint statement signed in Singapore seemed mostly to rehash old broken promises made by Pyongyang to successive United States administrations.

Kim has a 'one-time shot'
The comments came before Trump left the G7 meeting in Canada to head to Asia. "The U.S. press is very dishonest", Trump said. Furthermore, Kim has succeeded in lightening some of the pressure arising from economic sanctions on his country.

Inclusion of interpreters in such high-profile summits is not something new but for a summit between a U.S. president and a North Korean leader, they assume utmost significance because the chances of misinterpretation and misunderstanding are too high.

Mr Kim, whose country is subject to a broad range of global sanctions over its illegal weapons program, said he and Mr Trump had "decided to leave the past behind".

"The world will see a major change", the North Korean leader said.

Discussions are also left on economic rewards North Korea will receive such as sanctions relief and investment in the regime.
