Korean leader arrives in Pyongyang after Trump summit

Trump's Tuesday meeting with Kim produced a wave of United States concessions in exchange for vague, nonbinding promises from North Korea, but it did make nuclear war all but inconceivable at the present moment. A quick answer: Probably not.

President Donald Trump on Wednesday morning declared an end to the North Korean nuclear threat. There was plenty of talk of "historic first steps", in Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's words, but concern over how the yet-to-be negotiated verification details will turn out.

"We are working with the regional countries on getting this (deal) going. People thought this could never take place".

Alluding to the North's concerns that giving up its nuclear weapons could surrender its primary deterrent to forced regime change, Pompeo told reporters that the USA was prepared to take action to provide North Korea with "sufficient certainty" that denuclearization "is not something that ends badly for them".

North Korea sees the annual exercises as a rehearsal for invasion, but the government in Seoul maintains they are defensive in nature.

In South Korea, the liberal Kyunghyang Shinmun newspaper said Trump and Kim have started a "march of peace" to end almost seven decades of hostility and pave the way for permanent peace and prosperity on the peninsula. "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".

"President Trump appreciated that an atmosphere of peace and stability was created on the Korean Peninsula and in the region, although distressed with the extreme danger of armed clash only a few months ago, thanks to the proactive peace-loving measures taken by the respected Supreme Leader from the outset of this year", the North's state-run Korean Central News Agency said in a summary of the meeting.

A brief document signed by Trump and Kim provided virtually no detail beyond the stated commitment to "denuclearize", a promise that Pyongyang has made and ignored many times.

The US has stationed combat troops in South Korea since the end of the Korean War in the 1950s and has used them in a variety of drills.

All of this from a 34-year-old leader who was widely written off as too young and too inexperienced to last very long when he assumed power after his enigmatic father, Kim Jong Il, died in late 2011.

Two Air China Boeing 747 jets - including the one that flew Mr Kim to Singapore for his meeting with Mr Trump - were on their way to Changi Airport on Tuesday afternoon.

Critics, however, saw the handshake and Kim's earlier moonlight stroll as evidence Trump was helping to legitimize Kim as his equal on the world stage even though the North Korean regime has been accused of horrific rights abuses.

Reaffirming the April 27, 2018 Panmunjom Declaration, the DPRK commits to work toward complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.

Trump also praised himself for backing a woman who won a Republican primary Tuesday in SC, defeating a Trump critic.

It may not have been the focus of the summit, but Korean War vets and their families were hoping the issue would come up. "President (Barack) Obama said that North Korea was our biggest and most unsafe problem. That's a huge call", said Mr Broinowski.
