Donald Trump Tweets: North Korea No Longer A Nuclear Threat

16 June, 2018, 14:46 | Author: Essie Rivera
  • Negotiations to be led on the US side by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo are to begin next week

The spokesman claimed it was still not clear what Trump meant by "war games".

Stanford University nuclear scientist Siegfried Hecker told the New York Times last month that the nuclear disarmament of North Korea could take 15 years, and that the best the United States can hope for is a phased process that goes after the most unsafe parts of the North's weapons program first. "It is worrisome, very worrisome that this joint statement is so imprecise", Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said. The Korean War ended in 1953 without a peace treaty, leaving the two sides in a technical state of war. Both Trump and Kin Jong Un have already arrived in Singapore.

Trump announced Tuesday at a press conference in Singapore that he and Kim had reached an agreement on North Korea's denuclearization, although the text of that agreement was light on details, including a timeline for that process and how verification would work. He said negotiations would recommence "in the next week or so".

North Korea and the United States should commit to avoid antagonizing each other and take legal, institutional steps to guarantee it, Kim said according to a report by the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA). "We're prepared to execute this once we're in a position that we can actually get to a place where we can do it".

The historic summit between President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has one area veteran hoping for something positive to come out of it.

"And I think we shouldn't be moving too fast with the resumption of inter-Korea cooperation projects and all these exchanges will have to wait until we're absolutely sure North Korea is taking substantial steps toward denuclearization".

Then later, a video sequence suggests what impoverished North Korea could look like. "No longer - sleep well tonight!" the president wrote.

Writing in The New York Times, he asserts that "by Mr. Trump's own logic, any deal with the North has to be better, tougher, more comprehensive than the Iran accord", and he says, "that outcome is highly unlikely".

"The world will see a major change", the North Korean leader said. He told reporters on tarmac upon landing that it had been a "great three days". -South Korea military exercises while talks with the North were continuing. Trump cast the decision as a cost-saving measure, but also called the exercises "inappropriate" while talks continue.

A brief document signed by Trump and Kim provided virtually no detail beyond the stated commitment to "denuclearize", a promise that Pyongyang has made and ignored many times in the past.
