Trump ‘can’t jump ahead’ in North Korea negotiations: Leon Panetta

Trump ‘can’t jump ahead’ in North Korea negotiations: Leon Panetta”

Trump declared he and Kim had developed "a very special bond".

In Pyongyang, the North Korean autocrat woke up to state media's enthusiastic claims of a victorious meeting with the US President; photos of him standing side-by-side with Trump on the world stage were splashed across newspapers.

"We save a fortune by not going war games, as long as we are negotiating in good faith - which both sides are!" At a press conference just before leaving Singapore, Trump said Kim will start dismantling his nuclear arsenal "very quickly"; he noted that he wants US troops out of South Korea "at some point"; he'll visit Pyongyang "at a certain time".

By tweeting threats of nuclear annihilation after North Korea's missile tests, Trump created the very crisis that he believed only he could solve by meeting with Kim and lowering the temperature by giving away the store.

Is this summit a game-changer for Asia and the rest of the world?

Without military drills, the USA forces in South Korea would wither and fail to meet readiness standards.

It appears even Trump was unclear on whether there was any record of his 40-minute talk with Kim.

A senior South Korean defense ministry official said Tuesday that the South is trying to determine exactly what President Trump meant when he said that exercises would end.

But while Trump also voiced a desire to eventually bring back USA troops as well, he told Baier that the U.S.

President Moon Jae-in is expected to be briefed personally by the USA secretary of state, who landed at Osan Air Base. Pompeo is also due to meet the South Korean and Japanese foreign ministers.

The news on television and the front page of the ruling Workers' Party newspaper was something North Koreans never would have imagined just months ago - their leader Kim Jong Un warmly shaking hands with President Donald Trump. Trump insisted that strong verification of denuclearization would be included in a final agreement, saying it was a detail his team would begin sorting out with the North Koreans next week.

Despite the confusion and disappointment among some, the summit managed to, for a time at least, reset a relationship that has always been characterised by bloodshed and threats. "There is no longer a Nuclear Threat from North Korea. We trusted this big country, the United States, and we have been working on the North Korean human rights issue together until now, but now I am not sure if we can work together in the future", said Jung, who is also a human rights activist with a group called No Chain.

He said he anticipated the next discussion with North Korea would take place "fairly quickly after we return to our home countries".

Experts have argued that the Trump-Kim statement fell short of achieving meaningful action towards denuclearization.

In his post-summit press conference, Trump made the surprise announcement that the U.S. would halt joint military exercises with its security ally Seoul something long sought by Pyongyang, which claims the drills are a rehearsal for invasion.

Mr Trump's surprise decision has however been met with caution in Japan.

Global markets were relatively subdued in their response to the historic negotiations between US President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un this week. Trump showed off his new tattoo.

Kim emphasized the need to take "practical measures" to implement all the agreements discussed during his summit with Trump and promised in the joint statement "at an early date".

A spokesman for U.S. Forces Korea said they've received "no updated guidance" in regards to military exercises. The next military exercise is scheduled for August.
