Malcolm Turnbull issues emphatic endorsement of Donald Trump's North Korea approach

"It can't be understated that this president just took us, in a 24-hour period, from a decades-long stalemate with increasing tensions to.a blueprint for four things", Tom Bossert told host and Chief White House Correspondent Jonathan Karl, referring to the agreement signed by Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. But the meeting also produced more questions than answers, with the big one being: Will the North Korean dictator actually follow through on denuclearizing?

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.

Kim has managed to build upon the work of his father and grandfather and secured the highest form of recognition that there is - a bilateral meeting with the president of the most powerful country on the planet.

"The Pentagon didn't know this was coming", Dr Green said. He was consulted ahead of time, said Pentagon spokesperson Dana White. "The bad news is that the hard decisions now need to be made on a relatively tight timeline". "But I think when you step aside from who those two people are and when you consider the history of the Korean peninsula, this is historic, and it's monumental".

US President Donald Trump and North Korea's leader Kim Jong-un sign documents after the summit meeting.

The US had previously ruled out suspending military exercises because they have been a big part of its military alliance with South Korea and a deterrent against the north.

A large contingent of Democrats criticized the president and his staff for tentatively granting a number of concessions to the North Koreans, including a pause on military exercises in South Korea and even meeting with Kim in the first place to lend his leadership legitimacy on the global stage.

Mr Trump was asked by reporters during his final appearance with Mr Kim what surprised him most during their meetings.

Mr. DeTrani, meanwhile, highlighted the overall progress at hand.

"I really believe otherwise I wouldn't be doing this", Trump said of the summit.

Kim said that the "world will see a major change" and he and Trump "decided to leave the past behind" as they put pen to paper.

On Wednesday Japan's defence chief said the United States military's presence in South Korea and joint military exercises were "vital" for east Asian security.

How did South Korea react?

"North Korea seems to be highlighting this as one of Kim Jong Un's greatest feats yet and lauding itself for keeping the North Korean regime from collapsing while succeeding in shaking up the U.S". But peace has a cost and, given the current U.S. narrative that seeks to avoid foreign entanglement and is fed up with spending money on global commitments, it will require the United States to manage its shaky alliances if this is to be a realistic prospect.

The cancellation is seen as a significant concession to North Korea.

"We've never given that in because it's been our right, and it means readiness for our troops", he said.

"I'll do whatever it takes to make the world a safer place", the president responded.

Yet Kimball is anxious by the hard history of negotiations with North Korea, combined with the lack of any timetable or road map for further steps in the latest agreement.
