Trump says U.S. must pursue peace with North Korea ‘at all costs’

"You know, countries like Iran and Cuba and other two-bit rogue regimes don't have nuclear weapons, yet", he said. "He gave us the remains of our great heroes ... nobody thought that was possible". He went even further, repeating his desire to pull USA troops out of Korea (although not immediately) and emphasizing his desire to save money by so doing.

The summit also made a clean break from the failed approaches of past United States administrations, he said. You haven't had a firing, a nuclear test in eight and a half months.

"It can become whatever they want but there won't be nuclear weapons, and they won't be aimed at you and your family. You haven't had missiles flying over Japan", he said.

In the coming days, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will be working directly with North Korea to implement the denuclearisation deal, he said, adding that in the meantime, sanctions will remain in place.

Trump became the first sitting US president to meet with a North Korean leader when he met with Kim on Tuesday in Singapore. "I can only speak to the fact that we signed an incredible agreement".

Donald Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani pretends to tear a piece of paper as he speaks about the Iran nuclear agreement at a Washington hotel in May.

"I find that question insulting and ridiculous and, frankly, ludicrous, " Pompeo said in Seoul, where he was seeking to reassure US ally South Korea about Trump's negotiation, including a surprise halt to joint military exercises involving the USA and South Korea. "I want to have a good relationship with many countries".

"I want my people to do the same". "Even got our hostages/remains!"

Recently, Park filmed a video op-ed imploring Trump to do the right thing when he meets Kim Jong Un. Here's what we get: "everything". He said he would be including Beijing in follow-up discussions.

Trump defended his decision to unilaterally halt joint military exercises with South Korea. "I can now call him", he said. "I would like to express my gratitude to President Trump".

The US president also said during an impromptu news conference at the White House that he gave Kim a "very direct number" and that Kim can now call him "if he has any difficulties, I can call him".

Yet the statement ultimately said Moon would "carefully consider the possibility of suspending" joint military exercises, not that he had already suspended them.

"The public still has a lot of questions about the North Korea situation that were not answered by this meeting", Patrick Murray, director of the Monmouth University Polling Institute, said in a statement.
