Gary Locke, a former US ambassador to China and past governor of Washington state, told UPI the relative absence of human rights from the joint statement is understandable in some ways.

But in an extraordinary media conference later, Mr Trump announced details are not in the paper. But he contended, "Once you start the process it means it's pretty much over", an analysis that has proven faulty in the past despite inspection efforts. But Trump's joint statement falls short even when compared with smaller, piecemeal agreements made before the 1994 accord.

Kim, though, did get something valuable - a meeting with a sitting US president (something his father and grandfather never accomplished, despite great efforts).

"We have right now 32,000 soldiers in South Korea". Trump described the drills as "provocative" and "inappropriate".

North Korea blamed botulism and ingestion of a sleeping pill and dismissed torture claims.

"A handshake is no substitute for a binding, verifiable deal", Warren said in a statement Tuesday afternoon. Trump also said he'd obtained a separate concession from Kim to demolish a missile engine testing site, though it was just one site of many connected to the nuclear program.

The four-minute-long trailer, as shown by The Guardian, portrays Trump and Kim as heroes.

"No-one has shown more contempt for other nations and for the wellbeing of their own people than the depraved regime in North Korea", Mr Trump said during his infamous "little rocket man" speech to the United Nations past year. Murphy, have been quick to point out that no long-term verification process was included in the agreement. But the one-page document contains few specifics on how that goal would be achieved. "I just want them to talk", Rodman said on "Good Morning America", where he appeared for an interview wearing dark sunglasses, a "Make America Great Again" hat and a T-shirt promoting a cryptocurrency company that sponsored his trips to Singapore and North Korea.

Rodman traveled to Singapore ahead of the summit, but Trump, who knows Rodman from his time on Celebrity Apprentice, said that Rodman is a "nice guy" but not invited to the meeting in an official capacity. Trump has dangled the prospect of economic investment in the North as a sweetener for giving up its nuclear weapons. "Think of it from the real estate perspective".

The agreement is "not as strong as the framework under the Clinton administration", she said, but called it an important step nonetheless given the history of very public tension between the two leaders.

"The Singapore Summit, however, was a colossal disappointment". Then of course there is the fact that simply getting a meeting with the U.S. president was an enormous coup for Kim Jong-un, a hereditary dictator running a regime that commits appalling human rights abuses.

"There was nothing more we could've done".

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.
