Trump's 'appalling' Kim summit slammed by rights advocate

President Donald Trump's joint statement with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on Tuesday provided few specifics and no binding commitments, but likely set in motion a series of events that could unseat the United States as the dominant world power.

On Wednesday, a lawmaker in the ruling Liberal Democratic Party said Kim made no reference to North Korea's long-held position on the issue of its past abductions of Japanese citizens during his summit with President Trump.

After hours of discussions, Trump and Kim signed an agreement committing the United States to unspecified "security guarantees" in exchange for a denuclearized Korean peninsula.

I could see that the excitement of the day and the punishing travel schedule had begun to wear on President Donald Trump by the time he came to the back of Air Force One to greet the travelling press before departing Singapore.

"True although it was light on details, I think this represents an overall positiveness in North Korea-U.S. relations which hadn't existed before". But about 30 percent said they approved of his handling of North Korea.

Moon later said South Korea would be flexible when it comes to military pressure on North Korea if it is honest about denuclearization.

The argument also allows Trump's political allies and supporters in conservative media to claim ahead of the midterm elections that the President has engineered a triumph overseas that was beyond all his predecessors and has made America and the world much safer. "Of those alive today, only a small number will leave a lasting impact- and only the very few will make decisions or take actions that renew their homeland and change the course of history", his White House repeated in a propaganda video presented to Kim on an iPad at their first meeting.

Starting with Kim Il-sung, North Korean leaders have passed down their rule to their heirs. We'll be going over some of those concerns with an expert in the studio later, but sticking with the summit for now, we obviously know both leaders left Singapore last night, Kim Jong-un is expected to have arrived in Pyongyang by now, but we have yet to receive any confirmation on Trump's touch-down in Washington.

Seeking to quell concerns that North Korea and the USA interpreted the talks differently, Pompeo said, "I am confident that [North Koreans] understand what we're prepared to do". Kim's commitments did not appear to go beyond what he already pledged to do in April when he met with South Korean President Moon Jae-in along their countries' border.

It did not include an explicit reference to "complete, verifiable, irreversible denuclearization" - something Pompeo had earlier insisted was the minimum condition for a deal.

Trump returned to the United States on Wednesday and took to Twitter to hail the meeting, the first between a sitting USA president and a North Korean leader, as a major win for American security.

A government source familiar with the matter told Reuters that Japanese officials planned to discuss the summit meeting with North Korean officials at an global conference on Northeast Asian security to be held on Thursday and Friday in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia.

He is known to have stopped over at airbases in Guam and Hawaii to encourage US forces and is expected to arrive at the White House sometime Wednesday morning. "They can't threaten the United States in that way".

Trump and Kim were returning to their respective strongholds following the talks - but to far different receptions.

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

It also said that Russian Federation had been tracking undersea cables that carry the bulk of the world's telecommunications data. No mention of their affiliation with Digital Security could be readily found on either of their web sites.

"The U.S. -South Korea joint exercises and U.S. forces in South Korea play significant roles for the security in East Asia", Defense Minister Itsunori Onodera told reporters Wednesday. The Korean War ended in 1953 without a peace treaty, leaving the two sides in a technical state of war.
