Is anything out of reach after historic summit with North Korea?

Is anything out of reach after historic summit with North Korea?

President Trump salutes Fred and Cindy Warmbier, whose son was imprisoned in North Korea and returned to America on the verge of death; pledges to honor Otto's memory with American resolve.

Trump and Kim were in Singapore in the first ever meeting between a sitting USA president and a North Korean leader.

Hayden served as director of the National Security Council during the administration of President George W. Bush and as Central Intelligence Agency chief under President Barack Obama.

A GOP senator behind crushing sanctions efforts on North Korea said he's happy that the "failed policy of strategic patience" is gone yet cautioned that there needs to be only one goal in engagement with dictator Kim Jong-un.

But Kim Jong-un's highly anticipated meeting with Donald Trump, the first between a North Korean leader and a sitting U.S. president, also had its fair share of drama and spectacle.

"There is no military solution to the crisis with North Korea, so it is important that the Administration continues to pursue diplomacy".

"We're spending a fortune, every couple of months we're doing war games with South Korea", he added.

At a news conference wrapping up the summit, Trump told reporters he and Kim "have developed a very special bond". "I don't think they're looking so much to the Mediterranean, I don't think they're looking so much at Syria like they were, with total confidence, I don't think they're so confident right now", the US President said.

Trump said the U.S. will be monitoring the situation in North Korea to be sure that Kim is committed to dismantling his country's nuclear program. One of peace. Two men, two leaders, one destiny.

Perdue emphasized that it is also "totally premature" to discuss the United States withdrawing its nuclear umbrella from the Korea peninsula in exchange for the total denuclearization of North Korea.

Kim didn't confirm and extend a moratorium on testing nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles; he didn't say he'd detail his arsenals or open them to inspection.

Ms Bishop hopes this includes the remains of 43 Australians listed as missing in action in North Korea.

Democrats were openly skeptical, saying Trump had already given up some American leverage by committing to halting USA military exercises with treaty ally South Korea.

"As an example, they have great beaches", he said. But that, by itself, does little to reduce the North Korean threat. US military forces in Korea said in a statement Tuesday it was unaware of any policy change. "And I asked for it today, and we got it".
