'The Devil Is in the Detail': Russia Reacts to Trump-Kim Summit

Trump Says That Without Otto Warmbier, North Korea Summit Wouldn't Have Happened

Asked about denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, Trump said: "We are starting that process very, very, very quickly, absolutely".

Trump and Kim signed a document on Tuesday stating that Pyongyang would work toward "complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula". He said he would discuss it "at great length" at an upcoming news conference, and indicated it would be made available publicly.

The meeting, long sought by Pyongyang, will be the first ever between a serving United States president and a North Korean leader, and will focus on the nuclear bombs and ballistic missiles the North has spent decades developing.

According to Reuters, before signing what Trump described as a "comprehensive letter", Kim said the two leaders had a historic meeting "and chose to leave the past behind".

The US and South Korea suspending their military exercises in exchange for the North stopping its missile launches and nuclear tests is the exact situation China wants to see on the peninsula.

Kim said that "it was not an easy path here", but went on to say that "we've overcome everything and come to this place".

A rare direct flight from Pyongyang landed in Singapore on Saturday ahead of the expected arrival of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un for a summit with US President Donald Trump on Tuesday.

Axworthy believes North Korea's ultimate goal isn't denuclearization, but instead, removing the US military presence in the area.

For one thing, North Korea's commitment on "complete denuclearization" is simply a repeat of its previous promise from the inter-Korean summit in April, and it lacks a clear definition.

Winnipeg's Korean community greeted the announcement of a denuclearization deal between the United States and North Korea with hope and skepticism.

Trump had been scheduled to fly back to Washington tomorrow morning after spending today with Kim in Singapore, but on the eve of the summit, he altered his schedule, opting to return at about 8pm today after a full day of meetings with Kim - nearly 15 hours earlier than previously anticipated.

The summit between President Trump and Kim Jong-un was historic in that it presented a potent optic of peace and diplomacy between two leaders who'd traded nuclear threats just a year ago.

"And Obama didn't even give me the time of day", Rodman said on CNN.

"I think it's gonna be really successful, and I think we will have a terrific relationship, I have no doubt", Trump said.

Mr Mohan said that he knew he had a slim chance of meeting Donald Trump.
