Kim Jong Un commits to ‘complete denuclearization’ after meeting with Trump

Following their summit in Singapore, Trump and Kim pledged to denuclearise the Korean peninsula and work for finding a peaceful resolution to seven decades of hostilities between the two countries.

Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un became on June 12 the first sitting USA and North Korean leaders to meet, shake hands and negotiate to end a decades-old nuclear stand-off.

"There was a comprehensive and in-depth discussion over the issues of establishing new DPRK-U.S. relations and building a permanent and durable peace mechanism at the talks", the KCNA report added, using the initials for the North's official name, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.

Following diplomatic meetings with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, President Donald Trump told Fox News' Sean Hannity that he believes the North Korean regime will begin working toward denuclearization "virtually immediately".

But a slushy "freeze-for-freeze"-with no decisive steps toward denuclearization-is precisely what President Trump has agreed to: a freeze of joint US and South Korean military exercises in exchange for a continued freeze on North Korean nuclear and missile testing, accompanied by no concrete North Korean commitment to freeze further development of its nuclear and missile programs". Trump called the joint military exercises "very provocative" and dismissed them as a highly expensive practice for the US.

North Korea clearly extracted more tangible victories from the summit than the U.S. Trump vowed to pause military exercises on the Korean Peninsula during negotiations, a substantial concession that apparently even caught the South Koreans (with whom the U.S. conducts those military exercises) off-guard.

After the U.S. -North Korea summit, Sakie Yokota, 82, the mother of Megumi Yokota, who was abducted in 1977 while on her way home from school at age 13, said, "It feels like something miraculous has happened".

Trump hasn't offered details about halting the exercises, which were already disrupted this year when springtime drills were delayed for the Winter Olympics, which took place in South Korea.

"The core of the U.S".

Trump even said he'd like to eventually close all USA military operations on the peninsula. "The new element is that we agreed to stop our annual exercise cycle with our South Korean allies". The South Korean military seemed similarly surprised. "As I said earlier today: Anyone can make war, but only the most courageous can make peace!".

"I don't think he knows much about, quite frankly, anything when it comes to foreign affairs, national security, even a thing like the war games", said former CIA Director John Brennan of Trump on MSNBC's "Deadline: White House" on Tuesday.
