"Greatest achievement" of summit was trust-building between Kim, Trump: Seoul


Locals told Channel NewsAsia that some who relied heavily on trade with North Korea have closed down, while others have tried to go into other types of sales.

Peskov adds, however, that given how complicated the situation is around North Korea, the Kremlin isn't expecting a quick resolution.

The first official reaction from the Kim regime on the Singapore summit with U.S. President Donald Trump is trickling in and initial comments are broad and optimistic.

The brief mention did not include a timeline for the easing of sanctions, but Trump said earlier this month that he would no longer be using the term "maximum pressure" amid improving ties. It was shocking, he said, because these exercises are fundamental to our military relationship with South Korea.

Two years ago Barack Obama travelled to Cuba - and was roundly denounced by conservatives for breaking bread with totalitarian leaders and praised by liberals for his statesmanship.

"I saw hope in the inter-Korean summit, and President Moon has played the biggest role as a negotiator", said Kim Yong-il, 82.

President Donald Trump said on Tuesday after meeting with Kim Jong Un that the US and South Korea would stop military drills - but it appears China knew about it before the Pentagon did.

The report quoted Kim Jong-un as saying that ridding the Korean Peninsula of nuclear weapons is dependent on Washington and Pyongyang ceasing moves that antagonise each other.

"At this point, we need to find out the precise meaning or intentions of President Trump's remarks", a Blue House spokesman said.

International advocacy groups like Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International didn't think that was enough.

Declining tensions with North Korea and the lack of major war games is also likely to spark discussions about cutting USA troop levels in South Korea. In March, the North Korean leader also made a trip to Beijing.

The move could diminish the USA military's ability to "fight tonight", a term American commanders have used for years to describe the heightened posture of US forces in one of the world's most-sensitive military flashpoints.

During the press conference, Trump also said that North Korean leader Kim is destroying a key missile engine testing site, without specifying its location.

"The road ahead requires cooperation, compromise and a common cause", Guterres continued in a statement. "We believe the Security Council should make efforts to support the diplomatic efforts at the present time". "The Secretary-General urges all concerned parties to seize this momentous opportunity".

When President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un signed a statement Tuesday committing to establishing new, peaceful relations, they also agreed to resolve an issue as old as the Korean conflict itself.
