South Korea Didn't See This Coming - Cortney O'Brien

Lee Hye-ji a 31-year-old South Korean housewife says she is 'hopeful' about the historic summit

At the conclusion of the historic summit, Mr. Trump said he'll freeze so-called "war games" with South Korea as negotiations with Mr. Kim continue.

Trump acknowledged that the statement did not mention verifiable or irreversible denuclearization of the peninsula, but told reporters that he had discussed related measures with Kim and said the process "will be verified" by a combination of American and worldwide observers, without providing further details.

Air Force One touched down at Joint Base Andrews early Wednesday morning, completing the president's marathon trip to Asia for talks with the North Korean leader.

He also believes this deal will hurt America and South Korea financially.

In the two weeks following that summit, home prices rose by more than 50%, according to a local real estate agent interviewed by NPR.

The sanctions on North Korea will not be lifted until progress toward denuclearization is verified.

He's convinced the North Koreans know much more about where the remains are than they've revealed before.

In his second and last telephone conversation with Mr Trump in just two days, Moon offered to discuss a joint excavation programme with North Korea to recover the remains of United States soldiers killed or captured in the Korean War, Cheong Wa Dae said earlier.

But a slushy "freeze-for-freeze"-with no decisive steps toward denuclearization-is precisely what President Trump has agreed to: a freeze of joint US and South Korean military exercises in exchange for a continued freeze on North Korean nuclear and missile testing, accompanied by no concrete North Korean commitment to freeze further development of its nuclear and missile programs". Joni Ernst, R-Iowa. "We have done these exercises for years with the South Koreans and so I would just ask the president, why do we need to suspend them?" "Regarding all the importance of the solution of the problems between the United States and North Korea, including the peninsula denuclearization stages and security guarantees, it is clear that it will hardly be possible to solve these problems in the bilateral format", Lavrov stressed.

"Kim Jong Un and Trump had the shared recognition to the effect that it is important to abide by the principle of step-by-step and simultaneous action in achieving peace, stability and denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula", it added.

The meeting was also a "defining moment" for Trump, leader of "the world's police at the moment", said Cabalza.

In response to Trump's suggestion that an agreement to formally end the Korean War might take place soon, Nam said the Moon administration would not hasten the process and that there was "no timeframe" set for the process. "This person is not a wise representative for the U.S". The supreme leader, Trump said, was happy to accommodate the request.

"We must have hope that this agreement will finally bring peace to the peninsula and help bring closure to thousands of families of missing American servicemen from the Korean War", Harman said. Trump immediately pivoted to ranting about the Korean War.

However, the Pentagon has since denied that Mr Mattis was caught off guard.
