There's no indication this date was set on goal... but the Singapore Summit happened on the same day one year ago when the University of Virginia student touched down in the USA soil in his native OH following more than a year in captivity in the hermit nation. But we'll be saving a tremendous amount of money. Yet as Trump toasted the summit's results, he faced mounting questions about whether he got too little and gave away too much - including an agreement to halt USA military exercises with treaty ally South Korea.

"Reaffirming the April 27, 2018, Panmunjom Declaration, the DPRK commits to work towards the complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula", the document read, as noted by the Daily Beast.

Tuesday's summit in Singapore marked the first time a sitting US president met a leader of North Korea.

"At this current point, there is a need to discern the exact meaning and intent of President Trump's comments", Seoul's Defense Ministry said, adding that there have been no discussions yet with Washington on modifying drills set for August. You showed the video of what the future could be like. The less enthused North Korean leader simply replied, "We're here [gladly], overcoming everything" to make this meeting happen.

There is an array of reaction to President Trump's agreement - which is short and contains no details, timeline or definition for denuclearization.

In addition to signing the joint statement, Trump said North Korea will soon announce its next steps.

The statements emerging from Trump's summit with the North Korean leader have been criticized as vague.

Now, all key players, from China to South Korea, Singapore and the United States, have a direct stake in ensuring that the peace negotiations move forward and as smoothly as possible.

Several reporters asked whether Mr Trump had raised the issue of human rights with Mr Kim, who runs a totalitarian regime with extreme censorship and forced-labour camps.

"He's denuking the whole place, and he's going to start very quickly".

The president acknowledged that USA intelligence into the North Korean nuclear stockpile is limited, "probably less there than any other country", he said. South Korea, too, will be looking for ways to begin normalizing economic relations with the North and might resist harsher measures should they be necessary. I think he's going to start now.
