But Lu Chao, an expert on North Korea at the Liaoning Academy of Social Sciences in northeast China's Shenyang city, says the guarantees are probably "a repeat of previous USA statements that it does not seek to overthrow the current regime in North Korea". "North Korea has great potential for the future!"
Why has it taken this long to get North Korea to the table?
There have been inconsistencies in remarks from other top US officials on whether sanctions will only come after complete denuclearization, or may be eased along the way.
In their joint statementKim agreed to the "complete denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula" a stock phrase favoured by Pyongyang that stopped short of longstanding United States demands for North Korea to give up its atomic arsenal in a "verifiable" and "irreversible" way. Trump has said strong verification would be included in a final agreement, with the particulars sorted out by his team with the North Koreans next week.
Trump's announcement also appeared to surprise both the US and South Korean militaries, who said they hadn't received any instruction to cease the joint military drills, including the Ulchi Freedom Guardian exercises scheduled to take place this fall. "I said, I have something to say from North Korea".
But he said that was no longer the case, and everyone can "sleep well tonight". Fears of conflict were particularly acute after Trump called Kim "Rocket Man" and Kim pledged to "tame the mentally deranged US dotard with fire". The Bill Clinton and George W. Bush administrations both did so.
The agreement does not detail how North Korea will "work toward complete denuclearization" or any sort of inspection process other countries can rely on to verify it is actually doing so, nor does it require the Kim regime to give up any of his nukes at any particular time. "That will take a while".

"I really think that Otto is someone who did not die in vain". Secretary of State Mike Pompeo flew to Seoul on Wednesday for follow-up meetings.
Trump later promised to end "war games", with ally South Korea, a concession to Kim that appeared to catch the Pentagon and Seoul government off guard and sowed confusion among Trump's Republican supporters in Washington. Japanese Foreign Minister Taro Kono is also heading to Seoul and is due to meet with Mr Pompeo and his South Korean counterpart.
Pompeo was scheduled to travel next to Beijing before returning to Washington.
THE FACTS:Trump is wrong to suggest North Korea no longer poses a nuclear threat.
As part of the inter-Korean thaw, the Games were attended by North Korea and there was concern the military exercise could jeopardise the rapprochement. The next military exercise is scheduled for August. Defence Secretary James Mattis' chief spokeswoman, Dana W. White, told reporters he was "in full alignment" with Trump.
