  • Poll reveals what voters think about Trump Kim summit

But efforts to recover and return other remains have stalled for more than a decade because of the North's nuclear weapons development and US claims that the safety of recovery teams it sent during the administration of former President George W. Bush was not sufficiently guaranteed.

Even before the Singapore summit during which Kim pledged a "complete denuclearization" of the Korean Peninsula, there had been signs that China was opening its backdoor to the North.

North Korea has already begun its denuclearization, US President Donald Trump said Thursday, after many observers greeted with skepticism the results of his historic meeting with the North's leader Kim Jong Un.

Pompeo's spokeswoman Heather Nauert has said she will not provide details of the negotiations, warning reporters the process "can be hard when we're distracted by all of the questions going on". "Detailed negotiations have not begun", he said.

At the Cabinet meeting, Trump also referenced other concessions North Korea has supposedly made: "They've already blown up one of their big test sites.

It is a powerful deliverable to North Korea to say we are not hostile and we are prepared to move forward in a positive way, assuming that you are serious and you move forward", he added.

"There is no longer a Nuclear Threat from North Korea". "I wouldn't expect that at this point", he told reporters.




Trump, who has been leading an worldwide drive to press North Korea to abandon development of nuclear missiles capable of reaching the United States, told reporters after the June 12 summit that Kim had pledged to dismantle one of his missile installations.

One does not need a calculation of the exponential exposure or advertising value to be convinced that Singapore has benefited from facilitating the Trump-Kim summit (Singapore may have gained over $700m in exposure as host: Analyst; June 14). United States officials, however, have cautioned that such actions are reversible. Going into the summit, Pyongyang repeatedly rejected unilateral nuclear disarmament.

"That's OK. That's OK". With Xi standing behind him, Kim could also believe that he would have a stronger negotiating position vis-a-vis the US.

In a routine notice to the US Congress, Trump wrote, "The existence and risk of proliferation of weapons-usable fissile material on the Korean Peninsula and the actions and policies of the Government of North Korea continue to pose an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security, foreign policy, and economy of the United States".

Trump said on Wednesday the remains of 200 American servicemen had already been sent back, following on from the agreement he reached with Kim in Singapore.

News reports said that China has already resumed passenger air flights to North Korea, allowed sales of package group tours to the North and increased employment of North Korean workers.
