Japan eying Abe-Kim summit with possible Pyongyang visit - paper

FG lauds outcome of Kim, Trump historic summit

The Korean War ended in 1953 without a peace treaty, leaving the two sides in a technical state of war.

"Just landed - a long trip, but everybody can now feel much safer than the day I took office", he tweeted.

Using the military exercises as a massive negotiating chip in exchange for the North denuclearizing is a pretty orthodox policy proposal, but it stunned nearly everybody that Trump seemed to be giving this away for free after his meeting.

"While I am glad the president and Kim Jong Un were able to meet, it is hard to determine what of concrete nature has occurred", said Sen. "North Korea has great potential for the future!"

When asked why the words "verifiable" and "irreversible" weren't included in the statement - words that form part of a State Department policy of "complete, verifiable, irreversible denuclearization", or CVID, before lifting sanctions on North Korea - Pompeo said, "I find that question insulting and ridiculous and frankly ludicrous". He said negotiations would recommence "in the next week or so". "I am equally confident they understand that there will be in-depth verification".

"I brought it up absolutely and they are going to be working on that", Trump said. "We're prepared to execute this once we're in a position that we can actually get to a place where we can do it".

"Any improvement I think in the bilateral relationship for the USA and North Korea, China could potentially see as a loss for China", said Paul Haenle, a former China director at the White House National Security Council in the Obama and George W. Bush administrations. Trump declared he and Kim had developed "a very special bond".

"There are always concerns about President Trump and he's very erratic", Wit said.

The summit statement provided no details on when Pyongyang would give up a nuclear weapons programme or how the dismantling might be verified. Moscow and Beijing have long pushed a plan known as "freeze-for-freeze", referring to a halt to USA military maneuvers alongside a freeze in North Korean nuclear and missile tests.

In marked contrast to the recent conciliatory mood, North Korea previous year tested its largest-ever nuclear explosive device and launched two ballistic missiles over Japan.

Pompeo is charged by Trump with leading the follow-on negotiations with North Korea.

Clinton reached an aid-for-disarmament deal in 1994 that halted North Korea's plutonium production for eight years, freezing what was then a very small atomic arsenal. "No longer - sleep well tonight!"

Justin Trudeau Criticizes Trump, Says Canadians 'Will Not Be Pushed Around'
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said nothing in his G7 news conference that he has not said before to U.S. Trudeau and other leaders had given closing press conferences and announced a US -backed joint G7 statement.

The North Korean leader is also apparently taking defensive measures to prevent intelligence agencies from trying to glean information about his health: He's packed his own toilet.

-South Korean military exercises after meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore, drills Japan's defence minister said were "vital" for East Asian security.

Trump has bristled against questions over his decision to meet with Kim, whose country is estimated to have 80,000 to 120,000 political prisoners. "They want the remains of their fathers, and mothers, and all of the people that got caught into that really brutal war, which took place, to a large extent, in North Korea".

Baier pressed Mr. Trump on his praise for Kim, pointing to the North Korean leader's murderous regime record. Really? That's the oldest trick in the book - stall and when the United States says it will resume exercises, cry foul and blame the United States for the blowup.

It's unclear what negativity the president was responding to, but he continued later in the morning.

"He was unambiguous about that", Pompeo said.

Almost a year after they stood at Cincinnati's Lunken Airport to welcome home their son, the parents of Otto Warmbier said Tuesday they hope "something positive" can come out of the Singapore summit between President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

The document the two leaders signed Tuesday did not include details of how and when North Korea would denuclearize, nor did it spell out exactly what "security guarantees" the United States would provide to North Korea.

The press briefing came after Pompeo held a meeting with South Korean Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha and Japanese Foreign Minister Taro Kono in Seoul to brief the officials of the outcome of the US-North Korea summit held Tuesday in Singapore.

In Japan, the prospect of canceled U.S. In June, the North Korean government sent Otto Warmbier home as a humanitarian gesture.

"The United States is our ally, so the joint military drills are still necessary to maintain our relationship with the USA", said Lee Jae Sung, from Incheon.
