No More Nuclear Threat from North Korea

Организация встречи с Ким Чен Ыном довела советника Трампа до сердечного приступа Dennis Rodman Breaks Down In Tears Discussing Trump-Kim Summit

Trump's pledge to end joint exercises with South Korea without explicit concessions from North Korea to lower the military threat posed by Pyongyang took South Korean and US military officials by surprise.

That performance was all the more surprising for a leader who, before this week, had encountered just one other world leader - Chinese President Xi Jinping, whom Kim met on two surprise visits to China this year.

Mr Trump's assessment comes as lawmakers, analysts and allies have hailed the effort, but questioned the substance of what was achieved.

It added that North Korea and the United States should take legal, institutional steps to guarantee it.

The Pentagon has since sought to reassure its allies of its "ironclad" security commitments.

In 1985, North Korea signed the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), which was to be a landmark global treaty to "prevent the spread of nuclear weapons and weapons technology, to promote cooperation in the peaceful uses of nuclear energy and to further the goal of achieving nuclear disarmament and general and complete disarmament". "Got along great with Kim Jong-un who wants to see wonderful things for his country", Trump tweeted.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs, in a statement by its spokesperson, Dr Tope Elias-Fatile, on Tuesday in Abuja, described the "Kim and Trump Summit", held in Singapore as a historic achievement.

That was the personal assessment made by Trump, after the summit.

It dubbed the summit in Singapore "the meeting of the century" on its front page.

State media agency KCNA published an enthusiastic article in English praising the talks as a historic break from the past. But he noted that the "war games" with South Korea that Trump said he will end, will continue if the North Korean leader doesn't follow through on his commitments.

Pyongyang in return "commits to work toward complete denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula", the document says.

Japan is ready to help shoulder some of the initial costs of North Korea's denuclearisation - but only after the IAEA restarts inspections, Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga said on Wednesday.

President Donald J Trump of the United States of America and Chairman Kim Jong Un of the State Affairs Commission of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea have committed to cooperate for the development of new US-DPRK relations and for the promotion of peace, prosperity, and security of the Korean Peninsula and of the world.

Trump himself indicated some wiggle room, saying sanctions relief could come even before the "complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula" - however that's ultimately defined by both sides - is verified. He also said he hoped that this would be soon.

"The United States is our ally, so the joint military drills are still necessary to maintain our relationship with the U.S.", said Lee Jae Sung, from Incheon.

"We don't know what type of person the North Korean leader is negotiating with".

In another political win for President Xi Jinping, the declaration was effectively a tacit acceptance of the "freeze for freeze" proposal pushed by Beijing a halt to both US-South Korea joint drills and the North's weapons tests.

"It is up to the US and South Korea to decide about their joint exercises".

"We welcome the outcomes", the defense spokesman said.
