Trump declares the North Korea nuclear threat is over

Best case scenario is the two sides start talking, North Korea decides the U.S.is no longer a threat and scales back its arsenal. He called the agreement between Trump and Kim Jong Un nothing more than a "few sentences on a sheet of paper" that were "very aspirational". The latest example concerns North Korea.

He said he was confident Pyongyang understood the need for verification that it was dismantling its nuclear programme.

North Korea still has nuclear weapons.

After all those nuclear and missile tests, it seems like Kim Jong Un has suddenly signaled he wants peace.

"The war games are very expensive, we pay for the majority of them", Mr Trump told a news conference in Singapore after a historic summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. Worst case is the U.S. decides North Korea isn't cooperating and we go back to war threats.

His comments come after President Trump declared that North Korea was no longer a nuclear threat, insisting "everybody can now feel much safer". "No longer - sleep well tonight!"

Corker said going forward, the USA should leave the rest of the negotiating to the "professionals" who truly understand what is at stake.

KCNA also asserted Trump had "expressed his intention" to lift sanctions against the North something the USA president had told a blockbuster press conference would happen "when we are sure that the nukes are no longer a factor". "That will take a while". At a routine media briefing on Tuesday, Foreign Ministry Spokesman Geng Shuang welcomed the summit's achievements.

Trump and Kim agreed that their countries will quickly engage in follow-up talks led by U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and a "relevant high-level" North Korean official.

"Moist towels could be very important in promoting the growth of potential pathogens responsible for food poisoning ". New research shows some nasty findings about the bacteria that can be found.

Meanwhile, The New York Times also made a decision to have fun with Trump's fake movie trailer. Trump has drawn bipartisan criticism at home for agreeing to pause joint U.S.

How will this change relations between the US and South Korea, particularly the presence of United States troops? "I don't think Jong-un will give them up".

Trump and Kim are set to meet Tuesday morning (Monday evening in the United States). North Korea and South Korea have the most riding on a peace deal, but China, which is next door, is probably next in line. Pompeo, the former Central Intelligence Agency director, then plans to fly to Beijing to update the Chinese government on the talks.

The KCNA report, as well as the joint statement after the summit, also mentioned that the president had offered North Korea unspecified security guarantees, which Pyongyang considers an indispensable precondition for nuclear disarmament. Trump and Kim referred back to the so-called Panmunjom Declaration, which contained a weak commitment to denuclearization but no specifics on how to achieve it.

"Sanctions are not an end in themselves", he said, "the Security Council, through its actions, should support the current diplomatic negotiations".

The move - long demanded by Pyongyang - has been seen as a major concession to North Korea and appeared to take U.S. allies in the region by surprise.

And now here we are, talking seriously about not-nuking each other.

The U.S. has stationed combat troops in South Korea since the end of the Korean War in the 1950s and has used them in a variety of drills. The next military exercise is scheduled for August. The White House has yet to release the document's text.
