Kim, Trump commit to restart repatriating remains from North Korea

"And I asked for it today, and we got it".

What alarmed them more was Trump's throwaway promise to end "war games" with South Korea, which he described as "very expensive" and "very provocative".

The exercises allow US and South Korean forces to practice mobilizing soldiers in the event of conflict, and to run computer simulations to improve coordination between the two militaries.

"I'd like to be able to bring them back home, but that's not part of the equation right now", he added. While he wasn't an official part of the USA delegation or involved the meeting, Rodman, who has formed an unlikely relationship with the murderous North Korean dictator, was in Singapore to show his support for the meeting.

Even some staunch Trump allies said they were a bit concerned. "He is a unique person since he has a relationship with both Kim Jong Un and with Donald Trump".

"The coordination with South Korean military is absolutely critical", he said.

According to Onodera, Japan will continue maintaining pressure on North Korea. The U.S. would also stop joint military exercises in South Korea.

However, it was unclear exactly what kinds of exercises would be halted and when.

Former Senator Sam Nunn, co-chairman of the Nuclear Threat Initiative, called the historic summit - the first-ever meeting of sitting USA and North Korean leaders - just the "beginning of the beginning" of a long process. Cory Gardner, Republican of Colorado, said Pence indicated that "exercises will continue", although Sen.

Outside analysts believe the North objects to the drills because it must spend precious resources on its own war games and troop movements.

Rodman told CNN's Chris Cuomo that he had heard from the White House, specifically the president's secretary.

But it's unclear if or when U.S. sanctions against North Korea could be lifted. The presidential summit outcome is the first step along the path to the goal: "complete, verifiable and irreversible denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula and a free and open Indo-Pacific". "Regarding the peace mechanism, I want to say China is an important party to the Korean Peninsula affairs and also signatory to the Armistice treaty". Rodman's trip was sponsored by PotCoin, a cryptocurrency company that gives marijuana businesses access to banking as an alternative to many financial institutions that will not do business with cannabis companies because marijuana is illegal under USA federal law.

After the talks, the United States president said that the process of denuclearisation on the Korean peninsula will begin "very soon" and the North Korean leader promised to leave the past behind.

"One of the things that President Trump mentioned first was the cost of this, so maybe this is just to get a higher ground for the cost sharing negotiations", he said. "He wants his people to enjoy this life", said Mr Rodman, adding that Kim is "not a dumb man".

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), who spoke with the president on Tuesday, said he did not mind putting the joint exercises on hold.

"We are facing a person who backtracks from his signature as he travels on a plane". "We're not stopping training, we're stopping joint exercises for awhile".

The issue's inclusion at the summit reflects the efforts of fierce lobbying by veterans groups in America, including Veterans of Foreign Wars, which wrote to Trump last week asking him to discuss the matter with Kim. We need that to be taken care of.

DPRK stands for North Korea's formal name, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.

"Most of diplomacy is not about unconditional surrender". It's really about trying to figure out what can we give the North Koreans.

"It can easily be started again". North Korea released Bae later that week.
