Putin welcomed the outcome of the summit between US President Donald Trump and Kim in Singapore on June 12, praising "both leaders' good will", as well as the contacts between North and South Korea.

"He's the head of the country - and he's the strong head, don't let anyone think anything different", Trump said during the interview.

President Donald Trump shakes hands with No Kwang Chol, minister of the People's Armed Forces of North Korea.

Asked about defending Kim's human rights record, Trump told reporters, "you know why, I don't want to see a nuclear weapon destroy you and your family".

Kim Yong-nam conveyed Kim Jong Un's "sincere regards" and "absolute support of the people of Russian Federation", handing a personal message to Putin from the North Korean leader.

"We can think about that and we can probably reduce the scale of the military exercises or probably we will stop this time, only once, deployment of strategic assets, which means strategic bombers and aircraft, fighters".

Yes, there was a piece of paper that Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un signed in Singapore, a roughly 400-word statement, just long enough to run onto a second page. His work has previously appeared in the American Prospect Online, and he blogs frequently at Sadly, No!

North Korea will not get any sanctions relief until it has demonstrated "complete denuclearisation", US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has said.

Speaking to reporters outside the White House, Mr Trump said former president Barack Obama told him before he took office that the "most risky problem" for the United States was North Korea's nuclear weapons programme.

Seoul's Defense Ministry said the military talks will focus on carrying out agreements from a summit between Kim and South Korean President Moon Jae-in where they vowed to take materialized steps to reduce military tensions and eliminate the danger of war.

"I want to have a good relationship with North Korea", Trump said.

Later Friday, the president told reporters that he was only joking.

"[Kim] said, 'Yes, we will do that, '" Trump explained. "There has been no discussions and no change in position on the matter of the issue of USA troops in South Korea", said the high-level South Korean official, who spoke on condition of anonymity.
