  • Rishi Kapoor Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un

Trump and Kim conducted a comprehensive, in-depth, and honest exchange of opinions on the issues related to the establishment of new relations between the two countries and the building of a lasting and robust peace regime on the Korean Peninsula, according to the statement. He declined to comment on whether he planned to meet Trump or Kim. But it's unusual for presidents to salute foreign military members, NBC News notes.

The US head of state made the admission in his first interview since returning home from the meeting, which took place in Singapore.

The move sparked a debate on whether the US President was out of line with his gesture.

The official KCNA news agency ran a glowing dispatch, describing it as an "epoch-making meeting" that would help foster "a radical switchover in the most hostile (North Korea)-US relations".

"Yeah, but so have a lot of other people done some really bad things", Mr. Trump said.

Republican Tim Walz tweeted the move wasn't something he would have done and described it as bad. "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".

But Trump's move had always been suggested by China, and Beijing was quick to applaud its announcement on Wednesday.

"The streets were crowded with wellwishers who were full of reverence for Chairman Kim, who has come to lead world politics with his extraordinary political acumen", she said.


The Russian President has asked top North Korean official Kim Yong-nam to pass on an invitation to Kim to visit Russia in September.

The message was passed to the president of the North Korean Supreme People's Assembly, Kim Yong Nam, visiting Moscow as the World Cup kicks off in the country.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said China - Pyongyang's sole major ally and main trading partner - has reaffirmed its commitment to United Nations sanctions against North Korea until full denuclearisation of the regime is achieved.

What was agreed at the summit?

Following his historic meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, President Trump's approval ratings are now at one of the highest points of his presidency.

"Without Otto this would not have happened", Trump told a post-summit news conference in Singapore.

And while North Korean state media had claimed that Mr Trump and Mr Kim agreed to "step-by-step" actions - an apparent euphemism for phased sanctions relief in exchange for phased denuclearisation - Mr Pompeo ruled that out. "We are going to get complete denuclearisation; only then will there be relief from the sanctions".

Hailing his meeting with Kim, the first between a sitting United States president and a North Korean leader, as a major win for American security, Trump indicated that he expects Pyongyang to follow through on its commitment to work toward denuclearization, Reuters reports.
