Malcolm Turnbull issues emphatic endorsement of Donald Trump's North Korea approach

Alongside Trump were other big administration figures including secretary of state Mike Pompeo, White House chief of staff John Kelly, national security adviser John Bolton and White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

Was the historic Singapore summit between President Trump and North Korea's Kim Jong Un almost upended by a Trump comment about weight?

President Donald Trump sold his nuclear agreement with North Korea on Tuesday as different from - and better than - any that's gone before.

Kim has managed to build upon the work of his father and grandfather and secured the highest form of recognition that there is - a bilateral meeting with the president of the most powerful country on the planet.

U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un walk in the Capella Hotel after their working lunch, on Sentosa island in Singapore June 12, 2018.

He refused to go into details. "The U.S. has yielded major concessions - the summit itself and the end of our defensive military exercises - in return for what appears to be a vague and undefined premise from the North Korean leader".

Pyongyang has demanded the end of what it calls a "hostile policy" towards it, but in public has only pledged to pursue the denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula - a euphemism open to wide differences of interpretation.

The seemingly off-the-cuff remarks, which were not written into the joint document signed by Kim and Trump at their summit, stunned South Korea and even came as a surprise to us forces in Korea, which said that they had yet to receive updated guidance on the execution or cessation of training exercises, including the joint drills scheduled for August.

The report added Trump said he "understood" and promised to halt joint U.S.

The cancellation is seen as a significant concession to North Korea. Add North Korea as an interest to stay up to date on the latest North Korea news, video, and analysis from ABC News. And on January 1, Kim shifted his approach to the outside world: He went from flouting worldwide rules and leaders to engaging in a flurry of diplomatic overtures.

The US and South Korea suspending their military exercises in exchange for the North stopping its missile launches and nuclear tests is the exact situation China wants to see on the peninsula.

North Korea's state-run media is framing the agreements reached at the Singapore summit as a "step-by-step" process meant to bring USA rewards in exchange for gradual moves by Pyongyang to dismantle its nuclear program. He even adopted North Korea's language for the exercises, calling them "very provocative".

As they ended their summit Mr Trump praised Mr Kim as a "very worthy, very smart negotiator".

A spokesman with Moon's office, who asked not to be identified to discuss internal deliberations, said the government was still trying to understand Trump's "exact meaning or intentions" with the military freeze.

No official announcement has yet to be made about whether North Korea made an agreement concerning nuclear testing or research, as Trump mentioned in his tweet. "President Trump for the first time in 20 or 30 years of diplomatic negotiations with North Korea began to take this kind of political approach and try to tackle the root cause of this problem, which is high levels of mutual distrust".
