South Korean newspaper slams Trump-Kim summit: Diplomacy for kindergarten

South Korean newspaper slams Trump-Kim summit: Diplomacy for kindergarten

The president raised more questions after declaring upon his return to the US that there was "no longer a Nuclear Threat from North Korea".

Trump's failure to condemn one of the worst human rights records on the world stage is certain to inflame criticism that is already being leveled at him from both Democrats and Republicans in the wake of the summit.

Under pressure and publicly defied by Kim, Trump could return to the "fire and fury" that saw the world on the brink of nuclear war throughout 2017.

Speaking at a news conference in Seoul alongside South Korean Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-hwa and Japanese Foreign Minister Taro Kono, the US secretary of state said the Trump administration would not repeat the mistakes made by past presidents that rewarded Pyongyang for denuclearization promises.

"[It] needs to be clarified by the South Koreans and also by the White House, exactly what we mean".

Pompeo said Trump's comments about the reduced threat from North Korea were made "with eyes wide open".

But on his way to Singapore, "I saw what took place at this [Justin Trudeau] news conference, and I said, "That's not really what happened".

Several exchanges have been using Tether as a way to quickly facilitate fund transfers, replacing the need to depend on banks. Bitcoin isn't all it has been cracked up to be, according to a new report by a University of Texas professor.

While Trump was hazy about the timetable for denuclearization, Pompeo gave a specific (though probably unrealistic) date.

Any lessening of tensions is positive but an assurance that the threat of war is removed based simply on a relationship between a President who is term-limited and a volatile dictator who leads a criminal regime lacks the certainty and permanence of verifiable disarmament that the administration says is its goal.

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".

However this stock phrase, favored by Pyongyang, stopped short of longstanding U.S. demands for North Korea to give up its atomic arsenal in a "verifiable" and "irreversible" way.

"Chairman Kim Jong-un understands the urgency of the timing of completing this denuclearisation, and understands we must do this quickly", Pompeo said.

Pompeo contradicted some claims from North Korean state media about what the process would look like. "Only then will there be relief from the sanctions". "The V matters", he said. Their visit passes were cancelled and they were repatriated to South Korea, the police said on Wednesday night (June 13) in response to queries from The Straits Times. First he insisted, "It's in the statement". "I just have to be honest with you".

And after Trump made a fat joke and showed Kim the inside of his limo, they signed their "historish agreement", he said. "One should heavily discount some things that are written in other places, including from some of your colleagues", he said.

"And then Trump comes in to try to broker a peace deal, gives up nearly nothing", the Fox host continued on. "What do you think, our country's so innocent?"
