Trump gives Kim 'direct number' to reach him

Russian top diplomat comments on Korean Peninsula denuclearization

"And that is the president of the United States is just outside the press room and it looks like he is en route to our location".

Politicians, especially internationally, routinely create problems and then portray themselves as saviors for riding to the rescue. No such action has been announced by the North Koreans.

Trump's initial response to North Korea's advancements in nuclear weapon and long-range missile tests was over the top.

However, expectations of trade with North Korea have helped revive property prices in China's border city of Dandong.

After the historic summit on Tuesday, Trump said that the United States will stop holding joint military exercises on the Korean peninsula, making a major concession to North Korea. In addition, Trump had painted himself into a corner by with such macho bluster, which could have started a conflagration on the Korean peninsula that could have killed hundreds of thousands or even millions of people.

Mr Trump's plan to stop "war games" with South Korea is stirring up heated debate, with supporters calling it a goodwill gesture to facilitate the North's denuclearisation and nay-sayers as a blow to the bilateral alliance.

Richard Downes, executive director of the Coalition of Families of Korean & Cold War POW/MIAs, expressed excitement and approval at how Trump had raised the MIA issue with Kim and gotten a commitment to return remains.

The Post also notes that Trump was impressed with how "tough" the North Korean guards were, demonstrating further his affinity for the trappings of authoritarianism.

The pair also signed an agreement in which, according to worldwide media, North Korea has reaffirmed its commitment to the denuclearization of Korean Peninsula.

Immediately after the announcement, US forces in Korea said they had received no guidance on stopping any drills, and South Korean officials said they were trying to figure out which exercises Trump was referring to.

THE FACTS: This much is true: North Korea announced the suspension of nuclear-weapons testing and testing of intercontinental ballistic missiles in April, to soften the ground for the diplomatic opening with South Korea and the U.S. North Korea has not conducted a missile test since November 28.

Russian top diplomat comments on Korean Peninsula denuclearization
Trump jokes he wants ‘my people’ to ‘sit up at attention’ like North Koreans do for Kim Jong Un

Beyond the gauzy summit communique, Trump declared that he wanted to withdraw US forces from South Korea for cost reasons and evidently agreed to suspend U.S.

On Sunday, Trump attacked the media and critics of his approach to North Korea and defended his decision to hold back "war games" with South Korea. This arrangement seems suspiciously close to the earlier Chinese "freeze for freeze" proposal.

Of course, even if North Korea did promise to limit or eliminate its nuclear and missile programs - as it has done in previous failed agreements - getting it to do so is entirely another matter.

The sanctions won't be coming off until "we can be sure there will be no more nuclear", he said.

The meeting would have been unthinkable previous year when tensions escalated between the two countries after North Korea came into action to develop a nuclear-tipped missile capable of targetting the United States.

"We got so much for peace in the world, & more is being added in finals".

"We got along very well".

Kim said "the way to come here was not easy".

But if it truly were the case that North Korea's nuclear threat had ended once and for all, then there would be no need to worry that talks could "break down".

Kim's willingness to negotiate, and his skill at doing so, should placate fears that he is a madman who can not be deterred, even if he is just stringing the United States along in an attempt to flawless his arsenal - as seems likely.
