Trump declares North Korea 'no longer a nuclear threat'

How the Hill Reacted to the Trump-Kim Summit

After a day filled with smiles and handshakes watched around the world, the United States "committed to provide security guarantees" to North Korea.

In the interview, Trump said that despite his call to bring back USA troops from South Korea, a military drawdown from the region is not being discussed as part of talks with North Korea. War games, on the other hand, are larger exercises that take place twice a year and involve thousands of USA and South Korean troops at a time. "There's a lot of work left to do".

But in characteristically bullish tweets, Mr Trump said everyone "can now feel much safer than the day I took office" and people could "sleep well tonight!"

"My understanding is the intention is to suspend the large joint training exercises", Thornberry said, adding that he supported the Trump administration's effort to give the negotiations a chance and "put North Korea to the test".

At a news conference in Seoul, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was asked if the Pentagon and the South Koreans had been asked for their views. Bush took a tougher stance toward North Korea, and the 1994 nuclear deal collapsed because of suspicions that the North was running a secret uranium program.

"We're signing a very important document, a pretty comprehensive document", Trump told the waiting reporters.

"Let me assure you that "complete" encompasses verifiable in the minds of everyone concerned". It has not given the United States any information about them. "I am equally confident they understand that there will be in-depth verification". "I just have to be honest with you, it's a game, it's a game, and one ought not play games with serious matters like this".

The lack of details contributed to an air of skepticism in Washington about what Trump accomplished. "A lot of pundits think it was a mistake to meet with an unstable dictator, but Kim Jong Un said, 'You know what?" "Trying to reason with someone like that is like trying to hand feed a shark. For example you could probably have them give up their nuclear weapons, or you could find and verify and maybe disable key sites. but it's not possible to dismantle or disable all their nuclear infrastructure or to redirect scientists who work on nuclear weapons to civilian jobs".

Logically, Trump should receive no credit if you believe he brought us to the brink of war with North Korea and then pulled us back.

Pompeo said Trump would resume the military drills if North Korea stops negotiating in good faith. He told reporters that if the USA concludes they no longer are, the freeze "will no longer be in effect".

The news agency said that Kim invited Trump to visit Pyongyang "at a convenient time" and that Trump also invited Kim to visit the US. He predicted he will have his next conversation with the North Koreans "fairly quickly after we return to our home countries" and within "the next week or so". -South Korea military exercises, handing North Korea a win on one of its longtime policy goals.

In the leaders' joint statement, Kim agreed to the "complete denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula" - a stock phrase favoured by Pyongyang that stopped short of longstanding U.S. demands for North Korea to give up its atomic arsenal in a "verifiable" and "irreversible" way.
