President Trump meets with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on Sentosa Island in Singapore. A quick answer: Probably not.

"We had a historic meeting and made a decision to leave the past behind", Kim said as he and Trump signed the joint statement, adding, "The world will see a major change".

"We will be stopping the war games which will save us a tremendous amount of money", Mr Trump told reporters, adding that "at some point" he wanted to withdraw United States troops from the South.

"Trump and Kim have committed to denuclearisation of the entire Korean Peninsula".

But others said it's a great step forward for peace. The next military exercise is scheduled for August, and in years past, has drawn thousands of troops from the U.S., South Korea and other countries.

The US President said the drills would not be held while talks were on-going.

"He made very clear that the condition precedent for the exercises not to proceed was productive, good-faith negotiations being ongoing and at the point it's concluded that they're not, the President's commitment to not have those joint exercises take place will no longer be in effect", Pompeo said.

"He can come to the White House as long as he gives up his nuclear program, gives up his missile program. Sen".

The US hopes to see "major disarmament" by North Korea by the end of 2020, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says. "They are fighting hard to downplay the deal with North Korea".

It had never occurred to me that the leader of the totalitarian state might think of speaking to the press. "When Trump realized there wasn't going to be anything substantial in return, it was impossible for him to back out because he had already gone too far". "There is no longer a Nuclear Threat from North Korea".

"Major disarmament... We're hopeful that we can achieve that in the two and half years", he said, adding that there is "a lot of work left to do".

Despite those efforts, Trump announced after the summit that he had agreed to suspend US military drills with South Korea, something North Korea has long demanded.

He said he was confident that the North Koreans "understand what we're prepared to do, [the] handful of things we're not likely to do".

Those details could prove major sticking points in the future while North Korea is believed to maintain a nuclear arsenal capable of threatening the United States mainland. -South Korea alliance, forged in blood during the 1950-53 Korean War, should remain strong throughout the push for a negotiated end to the nuclear tensions.

"I'm not for Russian Federation, I'm for the United States", Trump said. He said South Korea is still trying to figure out the exact meaning and intent of Trump's comments.

U Sung Tak, 79, said the future was looking "bright" because Kim was "leading the world's political trend on the Korean peninsula, steering the wheel of history".

Trump took to Twitter on Wednesday to slam the media for its insistence that the USA gave up too much in its deal with Kim. The joint statement implicitly links denuclearisation to "new US-DPRK relations" and to mutual confidence building (that) can promote the denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula.

"Trump wanted to make it look like he did something big, whether he did something big or not".

Analyst Hong Min at Seoul's Korea Institute for National Unification said critics of the joint statement signed by Trump and Kim are missing a bigger point. "Usually when Trump signs an agreement with a foreigner, it's a prenup".

Bridling at a question from a reporter who asked why the summit document didn't mention complete and verifiable denuclearization, Pompeo said, "I find that question insulting and ridiculous and frankly ludicrous". Trump will likely benefit politically from that sense of relief.
