Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Wednesday that he expects North Korea to take steps toward major nuclear disarmament within the next two-and-a-half years.
President Donald Trump may well regret his choice of words to describe how he would address his meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, with late night comedians poking fun at the president's description of the "touch and feel" he would use in the meeting.
In his post-summit press conference, Trump made the surprise announcement that the USA would halt joint military exercises with its security ally Seoul - a concession Pyongyang has sought for decades.
Echoing that stance, Akira Kawasaki of the ICAN anti-nuclear group said the summit was "a great photo-op", but that "the substance needs to be followed up".
Trump's own chest-thumping tweet seemed reminiscent of the "Mission Accomplished" banner flown behind President George W. Bush in 2003 when he spoke aboard a Navy ship following the US invasion of Iraq.
So, what will the North Korean leader get in return for agreeing to "de-nuclearise"? "Maybe in a year you'll be interviewing and I'll say I made a mistake".
Another headache for US officials in Japan: The agreement says nothing about North Korean short- and medium-range missile tests and development, a particular concern for Japan, located a chip shot away from North Korea.
Most of us realize that the hysterical anti-Trump resistance has difficulty keeping its talking points straight.
North Korea is believed to possess more than 50 nuclear warheads, with its atomic program spread across more than 100 sites constructed over decades to evade global inspections.
He added that it would be impossible to verify completely whether North Korea completely denuclearized.
Both sides stated their commitment "to establish new US-DPRK relations in accordance with the desire of the peoples of the two countries for peace and prosperity" and to "join their efforts to build a lasting and stable peace regime on the Korean Peninsula".
Pompeo said Trump was alluding to the fact that it was the first time a sitting US president had met with Kim, adding that both leaders had a "blunt conversation" about the need for the communist state to rejoin the world community.
"Yeah, but so have a lot of other people done some really bad things", Trump shot back of his newest political introduction.
"The document is short on details, "Schumer said". -South Korean exercises appeared off-limits under the new guidance. Trump cast the decision as a cost-saving measure, but also called the exercises "inappropriate" while talks continue. "Well I think without the rhetoric we wouldn't have been here".
Tokyo has reacted with concern at Trump's plans to cancel military exercises with South Korea, saying such drills are vital for East Asian security.
Multiple sources told 9Wants to Know that Bishop is not assigned to the Denver office and works out of Washington D.C. The FBI agent who allegedly accidentally shot a man while dancing in a Colorado bar has reportedly been charged.
