A success for Kim, not so much for Trump

A success for Kim, not so much for Trump

"It has grown its capabilities far greater than any other country previously under the regime of Kim Jong-un - I recall a testimony from a defector, stating that it now has around 1,800 specialists, some of them handpicked as RNK's most talented computer experts".

"Two men. Two leaders".

Trump has made it a habit to attack the free press in tweets when the narrative shared by numerous reporters doesn't match his own views of an event.

Trump's intense personalization of the 70-year conflict creates new risks in a relationship historically fraught with violence, misunderstanding and outright deceit.

At their historic summit, Kim made few concessions beyond agreeing to "complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula" - a term his regime and the US can't agree on a definition for.

"Despite its many flaws", Cha wrote, "the Singapore summit represents the start of a diplomatic process that takes us away from the brink of war".

Trump's own chest-thumping tweet seemed reminiscent of the "Mission Accomplished" banner flown behind President George W. Bush in 2003 when he spoke aboard a Navy ship following the USA invasion of Iraq. This was all the Singapore summit really accomplished.

America's biggest enemy is "fake news".

Critics fear that Pyongyang is a more hard case.

During an interview broadcast Wednesday with Fox News's Brett Baier, Trump said China could be "a little upset" because of a looming trade dispute between the two countries.

Tom Cotton, R-Ark., who is one of the co-sponsors of the measure, said that the amendment would likely put ZTE out of business. Hong Kong's benchmark Hang Seng index.HSI was down 0.5% in early trade.

Trump and Kim met in Singapore on Tuesday - an unprecedented encounter that saw the leader of the world's most powerful democracy shake hands with the third generation scion of a dynastic dictatorship, standing as equals in front of their nations' flags. According to the Washington Post, North Korea's definition of "denuclearization" is different from Trump's.

It was not clear how the denuclearization would be verified given the country's secrecy and reluctance to work with worldwide inspectors.

Iran had agreed to round-the-clock monitoring of its declared nuclear facilities.

"They are going to stay". -South Korean military exercises - long a demand of China and North Korea, and until this week a non-starter for Washington - without apparently consulting South Korea or the Pentagon. There is no guise that the program has a civilian nuclear objective as there was in Iran.

"Trump has pursued what he calls a "maximum pressure" campaign" against Pyongyang to force it to give up its nuclear weapons. If so, what is he willing to concede in exchange?

The state-run Korean Central News Agency said the two leaders "shared recognition to the effect that it is important to abide by the principle of step-by-step and simultaneous action in achieving peace, stability and denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula".

A government source familiar with the matter told Reuters that Japanese officials planned to discuss the summit meeting with North Korean officials at an worldwide conference on Northeast Asian security to be held on Thursday and Friday in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia. And Kim, for his part, has offered no specificity.

"I'm not for Russian Federation, I'm for the United States", Trump said.

Trump has in the past condemned it as one of the world's most brutal governments. "Can I ensure that you're going to be able to sit down properly when you sit down? I mean, I may stand before you in six months and say, 'Hey, I was wrong.' I don't know that I'll ever admit that, but I'll find some kind of an excuse".
