North Korea lauds, and basks in, Kim's summit performance

"President Donald J. Trump of the United States of America and Chairman Kim Jong Un of the State Affairs Commission of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea have committed to cooperate for the development of new US-DPRK relations and for the promotion of peace, prosperity, and the security of the Korean Peninsula and of the world", the statement said.

In return for the U.S. commitments, Kim Jong-un signed a joint statement committing to denuclearisation, but analysts say it was vaguely worded and included commitments Pyongyang had made several times.

There was even a touch of warmth over the side-by-side stroll by Trump and Kim on the grounds of the hotel used for the summit venue.

The outcome came after an extraordinary two days in which Trump and Kim arrived on this Southeast Asian city-state in a strikingly lopsided power dynamic - Trump, 71, the leader of the world's richest and most powerful nation and Kim, 34, the ruler of the most isolated and repressive. At one point, they said this was a radical switch-over from the most hostile state of our relationship.

Trump hailed Kim as "a very worthy, very smart negotiator" and a "very talented man" who "loves his country very much", and vowed to meet with him "many times". The two leaders walked each other and shared a handshake with the flags of the two countries in the backdrop.

Rodman was crying from behind his dark sunglasses while wearing a "Make America Great Again" hat and explaining to CNN's Chris Cuomo the trials he's faced to try to create peace between the USA and North Korea, including receiveing death threats. "We're going to have a great discussion and will be tremendously successful".

Democratic Senator Jeanne Shaheen said, "We can't lose sight of the fact that there are awful, horrific humanitarian issues in North Korea, human rights abuses".

While North Korea has its own approaches to checking food quality, the United States utilizes a more reliable method.

Kim had already surprised many observers with shrewd strategic manoeuvring before the talks and the Singapore summit only burnished that reputation. "We overcame all kinds of scepticism and speculations about this summit and I believe that this is good for the peace", he said.

Stephanopoulos snared the first TV-news interview between President Trump and an outlet other than Fox News since NBC News' Lester Holt sat down with the President in May of a year ago.

"China of course welcomes and supports this", Wang said of the talks. "They're gonna put it together, and I think they're going to end up with a very strong country, and a country which has people-that they're so hard working, so industrious". "The U.S. has yielded major concessions - the summit itself and the end of our defensive military exercises - in return for what appears to be a vague and undefined premise from the North Korean leader". Trump added that Kim told him separately that North Korea had dismantled a missile engine test site.

Kim also tried to win over the public in Singapore, taking a surprising break from his intense preparations for night tour of the city.
