Trump declares North Korea 'no longer a nuclear threat'

Denuclearization deal between Trump Kim is vague on details

"The President's comments [were] very positive and the Statement touches on a new relationship with North Korea, and end to the Korean War, complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula and recovering POW/MIA remains - all positive commitments", he said. "We're hopeful that we can achieve that in the next - what is it - two and a half years, something like that", he said.

The five South Korean women arrested for causing trouble in Orchard Road during the Trump-Kim summit have been repatriated, said the police.

Mr Pompeo was speaking at a press conference in Seoul with his South Korean and Japanese counterparts.

But there was some skepticism about the summit's outcome "I'm afraid that many Japanese people are not so satisfied with the agreement".

Mr Trump said before he took office, "people were assuming that we were going to War with North Korea", and president Barack Obama said North Korea was the nation's biggest problem.

Pompeo said the Chinese agreed that only at an "appropriate time" will sanctions relief be considered "but only after full denuclearization, complete denuclearization of North Korea".

However, in the joint statement signed by the USA and North Korea, it only says that the country is committed to "working toward complete denuclearization".

Critics pointed to the lack of specifics in the agreement while questioning whether Trump gave up too much while securing too little in return during his several hours of talks with Kim in what was the first meeting between a sitting USA president and a North Korean leader.

"There is no longer a Nuclear Threat from North Korea."

Critics have said the encounter between Trump and Kim was more style than substance, producing a document short on details about the key issue of the North's atomic weapons. Baier noted that Trump had praised Kim as "a very talented person" and had said they have good chemistry.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Wednesday that he expects North Korea to take steps toward major nuclear disarmament within the next two-and-a-half years. "'You know, we're spending a fortune, every couple of months we're doing war games with South Korea, and I said, 'What's this costing?"

But military drills do more than cost money, they keep the U.S. troops and South Korea safe and ready for combat.

Trump made the surprise announcement that military drills would be called off during a news conference after his summit with Kim on Tuesday.

Observers expect a visit by a North Korean official to Beijing soon, as the traditional allies will want to consult going forward.

China, Germany and the United States must all acknowledge that, even if Kim is a dictator, the 35-year-old is not insane.

Even as Washington agreed to suspend joint US and South Korean military exercises as the country pursues peace with North Korea and the denuclearization of the Korean peninsula, Seoul is modernizing its military and purchasing new missiles and fighter aircraft. Regarding the alliance, we are dealing with all the issues under the premise that we maintain the ironclad joint defense posture.

Moon later said South Korea would be flexible when it comes to military pressure on North Korea if it is honest about denuclearization. While specific details were not included in the document, the president told reporters afterwards that Washington will be freezing USA and South Korean military "war games" while negotiations with Pyongyang play out. We should feel thankful towards South Koreans in general and also especially moon Jae-in for his consistent wise and skilled diplomacy.
