Seoul welcomes Trump's plan to have phone conversation with Kim

Seoul welcomes Trump's plan to have phone conversation with Kim

Those who approved of the summit said the unprecedented face-to-face meeting of the two leaders itself was the best outcome of the summit.

In recent months, Trump has proudly asserted that it was his maximum pressure and engagement strategy that brought Kim to the negotiating table. "You know what gets you nuclear war?" Kim is nearly certainly seeking it quite consciously, although it's unlikely that Trump has ever thought of it in these terms.

In the video released Friday, Trump says economic sanctions will remain in place, and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will work with North Korea in the weeks ahead to craft the details of a denuclearization deal.

Combined forces of South Korea and the United States have conducted their joint war games, which the DPRK has denounced as a rehearsal for northward invasion, twice a year in spring and fall, respectively. "The one that's always struck me most is this visceral instinct of people's weaknesses and a corresponding desire to be seen as strong and respected and admired".

"We have a really great relationship for the first time ever", Trump said. And Trump's interest in the subject seems to be growing as he becomes better acquainted with some of the world's authoritarian leaders, including Kim, Chinese President Xi Jinping and Russian President Vladimir Putin, who Trump said he may try to meet one-on-one this summer.

Some of Trump's domestic critics have also condemned his decision to halt what the president calls "war games" with South Korea - using a pejorative term for military drills that U.S. officials have previously rejected.

"I want to take a step forward and resolve the (abduction) issue after each of us breaks our mutual distrust", Abe said.

If North Korea has even a marginal ability to destroy one U.S. city with a nuclear weapon, the United States is effectively deterred from using nuclear weapons against it (except if the USA could count on destroying every one of Kim's nuclear-tipped missiles in a surprise first strike - but that's why North Korea will move them around or dig them in deep).

Trump made the remark to Voice of America's Greta Van Susteren after his historic summit with the North Korean leader this week, also praising Kim's "great personality" despite the numerous human rights abuses Kim's government is accused of perpetrating.

Trump's comment on Fox followed other musings during the Singapore trip while watching a bit of North Korean television. "If there's a chance at peace, if there's a chance to end the awful threat of nuclear conflict, then we must pursue it at all costs", he said.

Kim and Trump signed a joint statement, agreeing to complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula in exchange for security guarantees for the DPRK. "He gave us the remains of our great heroes ... nobody thought that was possible".

"I don't want to see a nuclear weapon destroy you and your family", Trump told the reporter. "I can only speak to the fact that we signed an incredible agreement". Chol saluted. Trump saluted back. Trump's announcement that he would halt the exercises appeared to catch Pentagon officials unaware and they initially said there was no change to planned exercises.
