Pompeo: US hopes for 'major' North Korea nuclear disarmament by 2020

The President tweeted: "Everybody can now feel much safer than the day I took office".

Last year, North Korea also sent a 22-year-old American, Otto Warmbier, back to the United States in a coma.

"It's freaky but it might be that Kim Jong-un's interests and Donald Trump's interests align".

Sophisticated readers of The Washington Post are probably drowning in takes of what the Trump-Kim summit outcome means.

Kim understood getting rid of his nuclear arsenal needed to be done quickly and there would only be relief from stringent United Nations sanctions on North Korea after its "complete denuclearization", Pompeo said.

Trump spoke to Fox News' Bret Baier on Air Force One after the summit concluded.

Iran urged North Korea to be vigilant while it weighs USA offers, citing Trump's decision last month to quit a landmark nuclear deal and reimpose sanctions. That concession to Kim appeared to catch the Pentagon and officials in Seoul off guard, and some South Koreans were alarmed.

Trump, seemingly unprompted, has long wanted to withdraw the US from South Korea, and now he may have found a reason. "I think, honestly, [Kim] is going to do these things".

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. He met for almost an hour with Gen. Vincent Brooks, commander of U.S. Forces Korea, at the air base before heading by motorcade to Seoul. But another Chinese private jet that left together from Singapore landed in Beijing early this morning. After a three-way meeting with Pompeo and Japan's top diplomat, South Korean Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha suggested the USA still had some explaining to do, telling reporters that the issue of the drills "was not discussed in depth".

Before the talks with Pompeo, Moon on Thursday hailed the summit as a great success.

Tough sanctions will remain on North Korea until its complete denuclearization, the USA secretary of state said on Thursday, apparently contradicting the North's view that the process agreed at this week's summit would be phased and reciprocal.

Although a joint statement released after the summit did not specify a time frame to achieve denuclearization, Suga said, "The North Korean issues are not easy ones that could be settled in a summit".

"The North Korean people have suffered so much for so long and for them to see the president praise Kim Jong-un as a terrific guy and then even go further and say the North Korean people love Kim Jong-un".

Despite the confusion and disappointment among some, the summit managed to, for a time at least, reset a relationship that has always been characterized by bloodshed and threats.

Trump held his longest news conference in 15 months in Singapore after his meeting with Kim.

In recent years, Ri has taken a high-profile role in publicising North Korea's tests of nuclear bombs and ballistic missiles.

Of the world's eight known nuclear powers beyond North Korea, three - India, Pakistan and Israel - emerged outside a formal global arms control framework.

In the joint statement, North Korea only agreed to "work toward" denuclearization.

Pompeo insisted North Korea was committed to giving up its nuclear arsenal but said it would "be a process, not an easy one". South Korea was largely responsible for convincing Pyongyang and Washington to come to the negotiating table.
