US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo speaks during a press conference at the Great Hall of the People on June 14, 2018 in Beijing, China. This interview has been edited and condensed.
The document Kim and Trump signed Tuesday in Singapore does not contain an explicit pledge to "complete, verifiable, and irreversible denuclearization", the standard Pompeo had said would be the only acceptable outcome for US engagement with Pyongyang.
"We should give major exercises a pause to see if Kim Jong Un is serious about his part of the negotiations", Harris said at a Senate hearing to consider his nomination to be USA ambassador in Seoul.
"There is no longer a Nuclear Threat from North Korea (the DPRK)". Bill Clinton did that as a concession to the North.
Trump also told a press conference in Singapore that he would stop US joint annual military exercises with South Korea, which he called "provocative" and "expensive". -South Korea war games as it is inappropriate to stage such "provocative" drills in the dialogue period.
"Let's not ever have talks like this", An said angrily. In his own madness, he brings innocent eyes to the Korean situation.
However, South Korean President Moon Jae-in told Pompeo the summit had helped the world "escape the threat of war, nuclear weapons and missiles".
Pompeo has since said it is "silly" to think that the document's wording, which calls for "complete" denuclearization but includes no deadline, does not meet the test he had set. At that time, he also welcomed initial signs of progress with North Korea, including its participation in the Olympics in South Korea.
In addition, they discussed the issue of recovering the remains of those in the Demilitarized Zone who died during the 1950-53 Korean War.
Later, the South Korean delegation chief sought to put a positive spin on the talks. Fourth, they want a lot of aid. But during the May 26 inter-Korean summit, they fixed the date for Thursday. That whole entourage of forces costs tens of billions of dollars a year to maintain.
"We would be very happy to see you".
After years of denials, North Korea acknowledged in 2002 abducting 13. It's a drop in the bucket, and a small price to pay to denuclearize North Korea.
The summit in Singapore, which marked a major reduction in tensions, yielded a joint statement that contained a promise to work toward a denuclearised Korean Peninsula, but it lacked details. Even then we have bombers that can lift off in the Midwest and bomb North Korea, turn around and come home without landing.
It is now clear that there is no deal with North Korea - at least not yet. But I think we've already achieved something that some of the best experts in the USA have called for for years: the moratorium on testing missiles and testing atomic bombs.
Trump has also been widely criticized for his friendliness toward North Korean leader Kim Jong-un during and after the summit. Both elicited giggles from North Koreans watching the program. Simply because of the size of the countries, probably Vietnam is a better model for North Korea than China.
"I think, actually, they will be very faithful in carrying out their main promises and their pledges".
JW: It would be foolish to try to predict what Trump will do.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, meanwhile, briefed his South Korean, Japanese and Chinese counterparts on the Singapore summit. In fact, the official readouts seem to be about different meetings.
"Just landed - a long trip, but everybody can now feel much safer than the day I took office", Trump tweeted.
