Korean-Americans react with optimism and caution after summit

Kim invites Trump to Pyongyang calls for mutual suspension of ‘irritating & hostile’ actions

Kim invites Trump to Pyongyang calls for mutual suspension of ‘irritating & hostile’ actions

Dismissing concerns over the lack of detailed steps and timeframe of North Korea's denuclearization, Trump said at a post-summit press conference, "I'm here for one day".

Thailand also has "ardent hope that all parties concerned will exert their utmost efforts in attaining these significant goals for the benefits of the region and the world", it added.

Amid North Korea's development of their nuclear and ballistic missiles program, the country has faced severe diplomatic and economic sanctions.

As a third party, Thailand has stressed it is neutral over the Korean peninsula issue.

Similarly, Wendy Sherman, the Clinton administration's policy coordinator for North Korea, showed little optimism over the summit.

Speaking later as he flew out of Singapore bound for the U.S. territory of Guam - towards which Pyongyang previous year threatened to lob missiles - Trump said he meant to hold North Korea to its word on denuclearization.

Trump's remarks came as a surprise to many in the US and South Korea as the exercises are seen as integral to their alliance and their joint deterrence against possible aggression from the communist North.

The US stations around 30,000 troops in security ally South Korea to protect it from its neighbor, which invaded in 1950 in an attempt to reunify the peninsula by force.

"I just come back from there last week visiting my mom", Shin says he often worries about their safety. "And I asked for it today, and we got it".

The brief mention did not include a timeline for the easing of sanctions, but Trump said earlier this month that he would no longer be using the term "maximum pressure" amid improving ties.

It's footage taken just before the North Korean dictator sat down with the United States president, but it may as well have been shot on the set of The Office.

Trump explained he didn't need to record the specifics of his oral agreements with Kim "because he has "one of the great memories of all time" - except when it comes to Stormy Daniels, then it's all a blur", Kimmel said.

"We had it made up", the president said.

According to the US-based National Public Radio (NPR), Kim is "one of the rare career Foreign Service officers playing a high-profile role in the summit planning", and one of the few with experience having served under both the George W. Bush and Barack Obama administrations.

It asserted that Trump had "expressed his intention" to lift sanctions against the North - something the United States president had told a blockbuster press conference would happen "when we are sure that the nukes are no longer a factor".

Kim on Tuesday pledged to work toward the "complete denuclearisation" in return for security guarantees from the U.S. as Trump wrapped up his historic summit with outcomes that could ease tensions and reshape the geopolitics of the Asia-Pacific region.

Highlighting the continued differences in the two countries' views of the denuclearization process, the report also said that they had agreed on a "step-by-step" approach.
