Kim Jong Un commits to ‘complete denuclearization’ after meeting with Trump

U.S. President Donald Trump speaks during a news conference after his meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un at the Capella Hotel on Sentosa island in Singapore June 12, 2018.

Wang said in a statement earlier that China welcomed and supported the summit between the United States and North Korean leaders and hoped the two countries could reach a basic consensus on achieving denuclearisation.

"So I think the rhetoric - I hated to do it", Trump continued.

"Number one we save money - a lot". "However, we believe we need to seek various measures how to efficiently move forward the dialogues [as] serious talks are being conducted to denuclearize the Korean Peninsula and establish relationships between North Korea and the United States". Trump praised what had been achieved at the summit calling it a "new chapter" in relations with the North.

The comments could fundamentally change the way the United States, whose alliance with Seoul was forged after a 1950 surprise attack by the North started the Korean War, operates in South Korea. He taunted Mr. Kim as "little rocket man", and warned that the USA would "totally destroy" North Korea. The country announced in 2005 it had manufactured nuclear weapons.

Joint U.S. -South Korean exercises, pushed by the Pentagon as essential to alliance-building and military readiness, will stop "unless and until" negotiations go poorly, Trump said.

The Pentagon was not immediately able to flesh out Trump's remarks about suspending drills, a move the US military has long resisted. America maintains about 28,000 troops in South Korea at any given time.

Martin has his way, the drama's recently ordered spinoff pilot will be called The Long Night . Weiss will move on to write and produce a new series of "Star Wars" films .

Trump said he expected the denuclearisation process to start "very, very quickly".

A statement from South Korean President Moon Jae-in's palace, the Blue House, appeared to indicate that Seoul was not privy to Trump's decision on the exercises.

Trump said the so-called "military games" would restart if the Kim regime begins acting in bad faith.

"Otto Warmbier is a very special person and he will be for a very long time in my life".

"I think without the rhetoric we wouldn't have been here", Trump told Hannity.

According to the joint statement, both sides also agreed to recover and return remains of soldiers who were killed or missing in action during the Korean War so they can be repatriated.
