U.S. politicians not yet toasting Trump-Kim summit

After the summit, Trump and Kim pledged to work toward complete denuclearization of the Korean peninsula while Washington committed to providing security guarantees for its old enemy.

After signing essentially an agreement-in-principle for North Korea to denuclearize in return for the USA cancelling joint exercises with the South Korean military, President Trump said it was because of Otto Warmbier.

Sang Kim also noted the deepening contrast between Trump's treatment of Kim Jong Un and Trudeau. "We told them that we were totally resolved, Democrats, Republicans, legislative body, administrative body, we were totally behind the president regarding total denuclearization".

In a session Tuesday with journalists in Singapore when he was asked about North Korea's human rights record and what Pyongyang could look like if it denuclearizes, Trump touted the economic benefits of building infrastructure in North Korea.

That meeting sparked exchanges, with South Korean officials reporting that the North Korean leader wanted to meet with Trump and was prepared to discuss "denuclearization".

He also announced that he would halt USA military exercises in South Korea, something widely seen as a concession as Pyongyang has long claimed they are invasion rehearsals.

Tuesday's summit in Singapore marked the first time a sitting USA president met a leader of North Korea. Trump cast the decision as a cost-saving measure, but also called the exercises "inappropriate" while talks continue. The language in the joint statement was weaker than in previous agreements - the very significant difference being that the North is now much further advanced in its nuclear programme. -North Korea summit proved that diplomacy was the right path to follow.

As Trump took a victory lap on the world stage, experts and allies struggled to account for what Trump and Kim had agreed to - and whether this agreement could actually be the first of its kind not to be broken by the North Koreans.

In Pakistan, the Pakistan Meteorological Department said that it is unlikely that the Shawal moon will be sighted on Thursday. The festival has a particular salat (Islamic prayer) and is generally offered in an open field or a large hall or the idgah.

He said the U.S. is "prepared to start a new history" with North Korea. The White House has indicated the possibility of multiple meetings between Trump and Kim, while diplomats and defence officials painfully hatch out the devil in the details of a final agreement.

In their joint statement, the two leaders promised to "build a lasting and stable peace regime" on the Korean Peninsula.

Anchor George Stephanopoulos sat down with Trump in Singapore early Tuesday morning, with the interview airing on ABC's Good Morning America hours later.

"As an example, they have great beaches", Trump said.

A confident leader strode into the Singapore summit and won.

The Massachusetts Democrat, who has been one of the most outspoken critics of the Trump administration, said that "success will be judged on whether it can eliminate Kim's nuclear weapons and verify they are gone". If nothing else happens, Schumer said the meeting amounts to "purely a reality show summit".

The summit capped a dizzying few days of foreign policy activity for Trump, who shocked US allies over the weekend by using a meeting in Canada of the Group of Seven industrialized economies to alienate America's closest friends in the West. Lashing out over trade practices, Trump lobbed insults at his G-7 host, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

The optimistic summit was a remarkable change in dynamics from less than a year ago, when Trump was threatening "fire and fury" against Kim, who in turn scorned the American president as a "mentally deranged US dotard". -South Korea alliance is the US troops stationed in South Korea and the joint U.S.
