President Trump walks with North Korea leader Kim Jong Un after lunch at the Capella resort on Sentosa Island in Singapore on Tuesday, June 12, 2018.

In their vaguely worded joint statement inked at the conclusion the summit meeting, the two sides only agreed to "work towards the complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula" while committing to a "lasting and stable peace".

Photographs of Trump and Kim Jong Un crowded the first half of Wednesday's six-page Rodong Sinmun newspaper, featuring the two shaking hands, sitting together and walking alongside each other at the summit venue in Singapore.

"The coming few months will give us a better indication as to whether [this] was an expensive photo opportunity or a positive breakthrough", said Patrick Cronin, the top Asia security expert at the Center for New American Security in Washington.

The summit capped a swift and astonishing turn of events that began on New Year's Day with a pledge by Kim to reach out to the world now that his nuclear forces have been completed.

The remarks were unusual for a USA president.

But I hope it goes way beyond that.

"Not just the Kim family, but ordinary North Koreans would try hard to imitate the handwriting, believing it's nice and divine", added Ahn, who defected to South Korea in 1979.

South Korean President Moon Jae-in spoke by phone with Mr Trump for 20 minutes late on Tuesday, but an official readout of the call made no mention of military exercises, according to Reuters news agency. "It's possible. We're dealing at a high level, a lot of things can change a lot of things are possible", Trump told him.

Mr. DeTrani, meanwhile, highlighted the overall progress at hand. "The U.S. has yielded major concessions - the summit itself and the end of our defensive military exercises - in return for what appears to be a vague and undefined premise from the North Korean leader".

How did South Korea react?

The seemingly off-the-cuff remarks, which were not written into the joint document signed by Kim and Trump at their summit, stunned South Korea and even came as a surprise to USA forces in Korea, which said that they had yet to receive updated guidance on the execution or cessation of training exercises, including the joint drills scheduled for August. "The pressure campaign", Tillerson promised, "w [ould] continue until North Korea takes decisive steps to denuclearize". -North Korea relations, and to recover the remains of prisoners of war and military members missing in action.

"We've never given that in because it's been our right, and it means readiness for our troops", he said.

Most of all, I think they feel relief - relief they would not have felt, and certainly not to the same degree, if the Democrats hadn't drummed up hysteria about an impending war with North Korea. "And they're not ready if they can not exercises".

The declaration took some South Korean and US military officials by surprise - though US Defence secretary Jim Mattis was not among them, with spokeswoman Dana White saying "there were no surprises".
