Former propaganda artists for North Korea denounce Trump-Kim meeting

Following their meeting in Singapore, the two leaders signed a declaration agreeing to "establish new U.S. - DPRK relations in accordance with the desire of the population of the peoples of the two countries for peace and prosperity".

After hours of discussions, the two men signed an agreement committing the United States to unspecified "security guarantees" in exchange for a denuclearized Korean peninsula. "Beautiful. Perfect", Trump said. Characterizing the exercises as needlessly provocative, Trump also indicated that he will be glad to reap the savings from what is an expensive operation.

The war games are very expensive, we pay for a big majority of them. "That is exactly the formation that the Chinese have asked for over the course of the past year, and we said absolutely not", Bremmer said. I know a lot about airplanes. The president said North Korea "more brutally oppressed its people than any regime on earth".

Warmbier's parents, Fred and Cindy Warmbier said they appreciated Trump's comments. -South Korea military exercises along the demilitarized zone separating the two Koreas, a tangible concession that drew criticism from a number of lawmakers back home. But before the summit officially began, the White House announced Monday that Trump planned to leave Singapore on Tuesday night, saying nuclear talks with North Korea were moving "more quickly than expected". The proposal-called "dual suspension" or "suspension for suspension" by China, and sometimes referred to by analysts as "freeze for freeze"-was introduced by Beijing about a year ago, and has since been prominently promoted on the global stage". In March, the North Korean leader also made a trip to Beijing. Kim didn't confirm and extend a moratorium on testing nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles; he didn't say he'd detail his arsenals or open them to inspection.

"Otto did not die in vain", Trump said as he discussed North Korea's human rights record.


Pyongyang also reaffirmed its commitment to the denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula, while the USA pledged to provide security guarantees.

Trump downplayed Beijing's role in the denuclearization process. The language in the joint statement was weaker than in previous agreements - the very significant difference being that the North is now much further advanced in its nuclear programme.

A statement from Beijing today indicated its satisfaction with the outcome.

Trump's comments on Warmbier came after Vice President Mike Pence reassured the OH man's father when he spoke to him ahead of the Singapore summit.
