Who gained and who lost what from the Trump-Kim summit

Winston Peters urges North Korea to 'realise' denuclearisation commitment after Trump-Kim summit

Trump-Kim summit vindicates Cold War doctrine of deterrence

The comments followed the conclusion of a meeting between U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un at the Capella Hotel on Singapore's Sentosa Island.

"It is the case that we are prepared to make security assurances necessary for the North Koreans to engage in that denuclearization", stated Pompeo.

One of the major steps sealed in the four-point document is "complete denuclearization of the Korean peninsula".

The pledge, absent from the joint statement Trump signed with Kim, appeared to come as news to both South Korea and the Pentagon.

China, North Korea's most important economic and diplomatic supporter despite its anger at Pyongyang's nuclear and missile tests, wasted little time with a reminder that United Nations sanctions could be adjusted.

In fact MNSBC's Morning Joe co-host Joe Scarborough took to Twitter to express that he did have "many concerns" about the so-called "Shotgun Summit", but he also noted that he thought a handshake between the two leaders was "far preferable to them making war".

"Ambassador Hill attended the six-party talks that occurred intermittently starting in 2003 between China, Japan, North Korea, Russia, South Korea and the United States".

"That would be a discussion between two democracies", the Pentagon chief said, referring to the US and Seoul, noting the issue is "not something other countries would have initial domain over".


"If joint South Korea-U.S. military exercises are halted, the role of the Combined Forces Command ends and U.S. troop numbers will naturally decline", he claimed.

"Plus, I think it's very provocative", he noted, adding that "at some point" he wanted to withdraw U.S. troops from the South. In a later interview with the Voice of America, Trump said the North Koreas were "very happy" about his decision to freeze the exercises "because it is so provocative". Representative Ed Royce of California, chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, applauded Trump for pursuing peace through diplomacy, but also said Kim had "gained much" on Tuesday, "including an apparent promise" from Trump to suspend military drills. Under the circumstances that we are negotiating a very comprehensive, complete deal, I think it is very inappropriate to have war games.

He added that the vice president "went on to say while this readiness training and exchanges will occur, war games will not".

Vice President Mike Pence allegedly assured some GOP senators Tuesday morning that USA military exercises in South Korea would continue.

"Well, you have a different administration, you have a different president, you have a different secretary of state, " Trump said Tuesday, when asked why he thought this attempt on North Korea would turn out differently.

Trump also seemed annoyed that USA bomber aircraft make long flights from the Pacific island of Guam to the Korean peninsula as part of its exercise routine.

"They've got a long history of double dealing", Hoffman said. "For all of President Trump's insistence that he is a great negotiator. he got nothing". "I'm very open minded to security agreements and to economic incentives to North Korea, but I am very close-minded when it comes to withdrawing our forces", he said.

Kim Jong Un invited Donald Trump to visit North Korea during their historic summit and the US President accepted, Pyongyang state media reported Wednesday, calling it the start of a "radical switchover" in the nuclear-armed Cold War foes' fraught relations.
