Dennis Rodman Breaks Down In Tears Discussing Trump-Kim Summit

Top Trump advisor to remain hospitalized as precaution

The historic meeting marked a "radical switchover" in the two nations' fraught relations, the North's state media said.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un said Donald Trump offered to lift sanctions against his regime when they met Tuesday in Singapore, state media reported, a claim that contrasts with the USA president's rhetoric that the economic strictures would remain.

So, as we reported earlier, North Korean news agency has put out a couple statements just within the last hour, essentially saying some pretty positive things, saying this relationship is changing.

Lasting peace has obvious benefits for China, especially in bolstering the development of its rust-belt and landlocked northeast which borders North Korea and would suffer in the even of conflict. Trump was joined by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, National Security Adviser John Bolton, and John Kelly, White House Chief of Staff, for the expanded talks, while Kim's team included former military intelligence chief Kim Yong Chol, foreign minister Ri Yong Ho and Ri Su Yong, vice chairman of the ruling Workers' Party. Trump surprised allies by announcing the United States would stop holding military exercises with South Korea, a measure China first proposed to Washington previous year, known as the "freeze for freeze" initiative. The drills help keep U.S. forces at a state of readiness in one of the world's most tense flashpoints.

At least one group of former North Koreans now living in Canada say Trump's new willingness to foster closer ties with Kim are unsafe, and criticized the president for focusing on denuclearization rather than seeking answers about human rights in the country.

Trump said Tuesday the summit has helped bring the world back from "nuclear catastrophe".

On nuclear weapons, Mr Kim "reaffirmed his firm and unwavering commitment to complete denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula".

In the event, the two leaders showered each other with compliments in the sumptuous setting of a luxury Singapore hotel, a marked contrast from their previous rounds of mutual insults, such as "mentally deranged" and "little rocket man".

"We are proud of Otto and miss him", the parents said in a statement.

North Korea said Wednesday that U.S. President Donald Trump had told leader Kim Jong Un that he meant to halt joint U.S.

North Korea also said that Trump has agreed on a step-by-step denuclearisation process by North Korea in return for reciprocal concessions from the US. The framing that he went into the summit as an equal and from a position of strength is crucial within North Korea, after enduring years of tough sanctions while it pursued its nuclear ambitions.

Asked by Van Susteren about human rights abuses, Trump replied: "Look, he's doing what he's seen done, if you look at it".

"It's very unfair to our farmers, and it's very unfair to the people of our country", Trump said Tuesday. People have been down this road before, but I'm not also going to be unduly negative, ' Mr Shorten told reporters in Perth.
