  • The President wasted no time in making his feelings clear after the G7 summit

President Trump salutes Fred and Cindy Warmbier, whose son was imprisoned in North Korea and returned to America on the verge of death; pledges to honor Otto's memory with American resolve.

"Unfortunately, we do not know if Kim has made a strategic decision to denuclearise and it is unclear if further negotiations will lead to the end goal of denuclearisation", said Anthony Ruggiero, senior fellow at Washington's Foundation for Defense of Democracies think tank.

I think, suspending military exercises is the one thing the U.S. can rather un-problematically do in order to get concessions from North Korea, because lifting sanctions, at this point, before North Korea moves forward toward denuclearization, will encounter a lot of resistance from other people in the American political system.

It was signed by Trump and Kim shortly after they met privately and with their respective administrations, with the paperwork stipulating that Kim has 'reaffirmed his firm and unwavering commitment to complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula'.

Both Trump and Kim arrived on Sunday to Singapore, chosen as the site of the summit for its reputation as a safe and orderly place and the fact that is has diplomatic relations with both North Korea and the US.

The two leaders concluded their Tuesday meeting by signing an agreement that acknowledges progress in their talks.

Speaking in Beijing following Trump and Kim's signing of a joint statement at the end of their historic summit in Singapore, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang reiterated that China has always strictly abided by all United Nations resolutions on North Korea.

"President Trump believes that Kim Jong-un has an unprecedented opportunity to change the trajectory of our relationship and bring peace and prosperity to his country", he told reporters.

Tuesday saw Trump describe Kim as "a very talented man" and say he had "developed a very special bond" with the DPRK leader.
