China wants to see a reduction in foreign military forces in Northeast Asia and for the gap between Washington and its allies and partners to widen, said Ryan Hass, who directed China policy for the U.S. National Security Council during the former President Barack Obama administration.

Roy Lee, 18, who was born in the USA to Korean immigrants who own a restaurant, said he felt a little concerned by the summit though he cared about the safety of his extended family in South Korea.

President Trump "didn't just talk the talk" in Tuesday's summit with Kim Jong Un, "he showed Kim a video that, for some reason, they made look like a movie trailer", Stephen Colbert said on Tuesday's Late Show.

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

Trump has defended the agreement as a major step in dealing with the threat of nuclear-armed North Korea and said he believed Kim's government would start the process of living up to the agreement right away. -South Korea military maneuvers may be in doubt and was showered with effusive praise from a president who just a year ago derided him as "little rocket man".

At their meeting in Singapore, Mr. Kim pledged the "complete denuclearization" of the Korean Peninsula, although the agreement lacks details of how that could be achieved.

While Rodman provides great fodder for cartoonists like myself, using his interactions with Kim Jong Un to provide insights into Kim for USA presidents, diplomats and intelligence agencies, is wise.

Trump says NKorea no longer a nuclear threat

But as his estrangement from traditional USA allies deepens and the outcomes of his summit with Kim Jong Un are disputed, an uncertain and challenging road is coming into clearer view.

The U.S. leader stressed that existing U.S. sanctions will remain in place until North Korean nuclear weapons "are no longer a factor". It also said Trump committed to unspecified "security guarantees" for Pyongyang, and to "lift sanctions against it".

The agreement calls for the two countries to jointly work on efforts to build a lasting peace on the Korean Peninsula, to establish new U.S.

The 33 photos seen in Wednesday's Rodong Sinmun were far fewer than the 61 featured in the Rodong the day after the April 27 inter-Korean summit but the April event had been a one-day trip for Kim Jong Un while Kim was in Singapore for three. Trump declared he and Kim had developed "a very special bond", and seemed to delight in giving Kim a glimpse of the presidential limousine. Still, others might say let's wait until there's an actual peace deal before we start doling out the accolades. There are still few details about Trump's decision to suspend United States "war games" in South Korea, which could fuel discussion about a weakening of the alliance. China, as North Korea's neighbor and most important trading partner, also could provide relief to Kim by throttling down sanctions enforcement on its own. -South Korean drills was met with concern.

Trump's comment on suspending joint exercises with Seoul have caught South Korea's Defense Ministry and USA forces in Korea off guard.

While Trump has said his "maximum pressure" campaign is what led to the summit, KCNA suggested that Trump credited Kim for the detente.

The conservative Chosun Ilbo, the country's biggest paper, was more critical, denouncing Trump for offering the end of military drills while failing to convince the North to commit to verifiably giving up its nukes for good.
