Honest, direct and productive meet with North Korean leader, says US President

FG lauds outcome of Kim, Trump historic summit

Washington has described the drills as defensive in nature, but Pyongyang says they are a rehearsal for invasion and has long called for them to end. No details of what those steps would be were given.

However, some are still wary of the nature of the summit, with some saying the document signed between the two leaders looks "scarily like a draft agreement". Even in cases where the USA president has studied his briefing materials, unlike Trump, having others present can prevent a situation where the two nations disagree about what promises were made.

Rodman first visited North Korea in 2013 when he toured the country with the Harlem Globetrotters.

North Korean state media have reported that President Trump made a raft of concessions to Kim Jong Un that were not stated in the two countries' joint statement, following a first-ever meeting of the leaders in Singapore.

Trump also said that his meeting with Kim was an "interesting and very positive experience" and that "North Korea has great potential for the future!" He added, "I am equally confident that they understand there will be in-depth verification".

Moon said the North's report should be confirmed from the U.S. side, while another expert agreed the North Korean state media should be taken with a grain of salt.

The President also added that North Korea's promise to complete denuclearization "will be verified", though the document the two leaders signed did not lay out details of that process. War games, on the other hand, are larger exercises that take place twice a year and involve thousands of United States and South Korean troops at a time.

And Trump told ABC News the US would soon end or scale back longstanding joint military exercises with South Korea, and agreed that they were "provocative" toward the North.

"We save a fortune by not doing war games", Trump tweeted Wednesday, "as long as we are negotiating in good faith - which both sides are!"

President Trump is expected to meet separately with Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong on Monday.

"We also loved how her flowing hair was down in majestic curls and we can't ignore the huge smile on her face", Dishaw said. The event was attended by other senior royals including the Queen , Prince Charles and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge .

"I think he's going to do these things", Trump said. "Putin was right", a spokesman said.

It appears even Trump was unclear on whether there was any record of his 40-minute talk with Kim. "My meeting with Chairman Kim was honest, direct and productive".

A report in North Korea's Rodong Sinmun newspaper, another state-run outlet, claimed on Wednesday that the USA agreed to offer rewards as North Korea moved toward ridding itself of nukes.

In return, Mr Trump, to the surprise of US ally South Korea and his own military, said he would end joint US-South Korea military exercises. "I just have to be honest with you, it's a game, it's a game, and one ought not play games with serious matters like this". According to North Korean media, the North Korean culture suggests the younger ones should arrive earlier as a mark of respect.

"Otto did not die in vain". Then Trump "expressing his understanding of it", said he intends to end this "provocation".

'No, it is not drawing down at all, ' Trump told Fox News when asked about that part of his agreement with Kim.

"We had a historic meeting and chose to leave the past behind and we are about to sign the historic document", Kim said through a translator.

The move - long demanded by Pyongyang - has been seen as a major concession to North Korea and appeared to take United States allies in the region by surprise.

Kim at one point told Trump that many people around the world would see their meeting as a kind of fantasy, as if it the event was a "science fiction movie".
