'Disappointing': Experts React To The United States-North Korea Summit

North Korea's Kim Jong-un and US President Donald Trump have arrived in Singapore for a historic meeting to end a nuclear standoff in the Korean peninsula

North Korea's Kim Jong-un and US President Donald Trump have arrived in Singapore for a historic meeting to end a nuclear standoff in the Korean peninsula

"Regarding the U.S. President Trump's comment regarding ending of the combined military drill and so on, we need to find out the exact meaning or intention behind his comments at this point", South Korea said in a statement.

The US President announced that he knew "a lot about airplanes" before adding they were "expensive" during his press conference following his summit meeting with the North Korean leader.

Wang said in a statement earlier that China welcomed and supported the summit between the U.S. and North Korean leaders and hoped the two countries could reach a basic consensus on achieving denuclearisation. Sometimes I felt foolish doing it.

"I think Beijing actually gave a message to Kim Jong Un during their meeting at the beginning of last month in Dalian basically saying, 'look we will take care of you - you don't need relief from the USA because we'll give you that sanctions relief", he said.

Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un pledged to work towards complete denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula while Washington committed to providing security guarantees for its old enemy. But we'll be saving a tremendous amount of money.


However, relations with North Korea, which had seemed to go well, broke down under former President George W. Bush after the US accused North Korea of having an enriched uranium program, a major step in the nuclear weapon building process. North Korea also insists that the U.S. troop presence in the South, as well as its nuclear "umbrella" over allies Seoul and Tokyo, are part of America's "hostile" policy toward the North.

A statement from South Korean President Moon Jae-in's palace, the Blue House, appeared to indicate that Seoul was not privy to Trump's decision on the exercises.

"I said when I first started, why do the bombers come from Guam?"

Admittedly, Trump said Kim was very pleased with the development. Since the 1970s, the United States and South Korea have held a major summertime exercise called Ulchi Freedom Guardian that involves tens of thousands of troops.

While an armistice agreement in 1953 ended active hostilities in the Korean War, neither side ever signed a peace treaty, making the Korean War one of history's longest ongoing military conflicts.
