World Leaders React to Trump-Kim Summit

World Leaders React to Trump-Kim Summit

Donald Trump is so determined to convince Kim Jong-un of the benefits of agreeing to disarmament that he created a four-minute fake movie trailer starring the pair of them.

"Through this US-North Korea summit, Chairman Kim Jong-un's intent for complete denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula was confirmed in writing", Abe told reporters.

Their signed commitment reaffirms an agreement struck between the leaders of North and South Korea.

The tweet reportedly also accused Israel of trying to sabotage Tuesday's summit in Singapore between Trump and Kim. Trump, as U.S. president, has a responsibility to deal with North Korea's nuclear threat toward his people before he champions the rights of North Koreans. That was on the table at the beginning, and you see a total denuclearization of North Korea - so important. To praise Kim's survival skills is unusual talk from an American president, given that he did so without noting Kim inherited his position as absolute monarch of a country ruled by fear, murder and constant surveillance.

The North Korean account is no longer available on Twitter.

But he said sanctions would remain in place for now and argued "we haven't given up anything".

"In North Korea there is no freedom of speech", he said.

"The worldwide community must not take the pressure off without confirmation the regime actually committed and is following through with genuine denuclearisation", Senator Wong said in a statement.

A confident leader strode into the Singapore summit and won. He explained that they're too expensive anyway and, besides, they are quite provocative to North Korea.

"We're going to denuke North Korea", Trump also told VOA contributor Greta Van Susteren, adding that USA troops stationed in South Korea will remain in place, but announcing one concession long-sought by North Korea not included in the document signed earlier in the day. The loot? An interview with President Donald Trump following his recent history talks with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. "He loves his people, not that I'm surprised by that", Trump said.

Meantime, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is also commenting - saying he supports Trump's efforts and looks forward to getting more details.

There were plenty of smiles for the pair during the day. Speaking through a translator, Kim vowed: "The world will see the major change".

He made it to China but was caught and returned to a North Korean labour camp, where he said torture was among the "very serious human rights violations", which he witnessed, and which he says still continue to this day.
