North Korea: Trump has agreed to step-by-step denuclearization

North Korea: Trump has agreed to step-by-step denuclearization”

In a press briefing in Singapore Monday, Pompeo said the White House has met with more than 100 experts from various fields, who have advised the Trump administration on the best strategies to negotiate with North Korea.

North Korean Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un should know that the U.S. has a history of "quitting treaties and violating their commitments" before trusting Washington, Iran's Foreign Ministry said Monday.

The president also said it's possible Kim will make a trip to Washington in the future.

"I think without the rhetoric we wouldn't have been here".

The meeting in Singapore produced a handful of commitments from the Kim regime, including a restated intent to denuclearize the Korean peninsula. "That's not what you have to do", Trump said.

The summit meeting is a good start between the US and North Korea, she said.

"My first question is whether our allies, the South Koreans, were consulted in advance of suspending these military exercises", he told Reuters.

"In one, NK called the Chinese to tell them Trump agreed military exercises would cease".

Meanwhile at the Pentagon, officials ducked in and out of meetings to discuss what would amount to an epic shift in how the United States military has been postured in South Korea for decades.

And what "exactly was the president committing to?" he added.

The Commander-in-Chief spoke with Hannity just hours after his face-to-face meeting with Kim Jong Un; explaining his use of heated language when describing the communist leader, whom he referred to at the United Nations as a little "Rocket Man".

"But we believe it is necessary to come up with various measures to improve dialogue more smoothly", the Blue House said. "Well I think without the rhetoric we wouldn't have been here".

South Korean President Moon Jae-in spoke by phone with Trump for 20 minutes late on Tuesday, but an official readout of the call made no mention of military exercises.

"Everybody is interested in the summit right now", she said.

"The Singapore summit statement is essentially aspirational: no definitions of denuclearisation, no timelines, no details as to verification", Haass said on Twitter.

U.S. officials and the North Korean state news agency struck a hopeful tone as the meeting approached, while negotiators from both countries met privately in the last hours to iron out agreements, such as over the definition of denuclearisation and the terms under which Pyongyang might agree to dismantle its nuclear arsenal.
