Who gained and who lost what from the Trump Kim summit

Trump ‘can’t jump ahead’ in North Korea negotiations: Leon Panetta

President Donald Trump came out of his summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un with a startling a concession: The U.S. will stop participating in military exercises on the Korean peninsula, a major facet of the American alliance with South Korea.

"But the President said he expected immediate action as a result of the talks". "I think the summit talk is very important because we are really covering a lot of people".

The president left Singapore after the two leaders signed a document stating Pyongyang would work toward "complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula".

"I want to bring our soldiers back home", he said.

In a statement, White later said the Pentagon "welcomes the positive news coming out of the summit and fully supports the ongoing, diplomatically led efforts with" North Korea.

Later in the day, Trump is reportedly set to give his first post-summit interview at the Capella Hotel on Sentosa Island to Fox News' Sean Hannity, a leading Trump booster, who is in Singapore covering the summit. "That's not part of the equation right now".

Pompeo is scheduled to immediately fly to Seoul and Beijing after the summit to brief South Korean allies and Chinese officials on the discussions, reflecting the reality than any solutions in the region will need buy-in from those nations.

Nan, a senior official at the South Korean presidential office, said he believed Pyongyang and Washington could "develop confidence in resolving any issues through follow-up measures".

If Mattis was aware that Trump was going to announce a suspension of military exercises, he apparently did not share that information with the South Koreans or with the military organization most directly affected: U.S. Forces Korea.

North Korea has called for an end to the exercises as part of the United States' ending its "hostile policy" toward the country.

"There were no surprises", she said. "Well I think without the rhetoric we wouldn't have been here".

In a later interview with the Voice of America, Trump said the North Koreas were "very happy" about his decision to freeze the exercises "because it is so provocative".

However, it was only in 1992 that the United States and North Korea rekindled diplomatic.

But Trump refused to endorse a communique at the G7 summit over the weekend that said participants were "guided by our shared values of freedom, democracy, the rule of law and respect for human rights and our commitment to promote a rules-based worldwide order".
