Merkley: Trump-Kim summit a 'colossal disappointment'

Pyongyang also reaffirmed its commitment to the denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula, while the US pledged to provide security guarantees. The language in the joint statement was weaker than in previous agreements - the very significant difference being that the North is now much further advanced in its nuclear programme.

A joint declaration after the first meeting between a us president and a North Korean leader called the summit "an epochal event of great significance in overcoming decades of tensions and hostilities between the two countries and for the opening up of a new future". Just $5 a month.

But he's serious leader who runs a country with serious national interests. He was not reading from notes. "The world will see a major change", he said. Again, this was a statement that Kim did not need to make if he did not mean it.

During his talk with Hannity, Trump said his inflammatory rhetoric helped spur this new meeting. The young American, he continued, "didn't die in vain".

Ms Bishop's opposition counterpart Penny Wong echoed concerns that North Korea might not follow through on its promise.

Long an authoritarian state, North Korea has used propaganda films to shape public perception of its leaders, often portraying Kim and his family as gods.

"I brought it up at the very end".

North Korea blamed botulism and ingestion of a sleeping pill and dismissed torture claims. Murphy, have been quick to point out that no long-term verification process was included in the agreement.

The declaration added that the two countries "will join their efforts to build a lasting and stable peace regime on the Korean Peninsula" and an assurance that the "DPRK commits to work toward complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula".

We firmly reject any false equivalency between North Korea's illegal nuclear and missile programs, which are enormously destabilizing and have been repeatedly condemned by the UN Security Council, and our long-standing joint activities with our allies, which are transparent and defensive in nature.

In his meeting with reporters, Trump revealed a major concession about the joint-military exercises that the United States conducts with South Korea. Trump described the drills as "provocative" and "inappropriate". "The Korean War never ended, it was a cease-fire and now we have a chance to put that conflict to bed". And Kim immediately agreed.

Asked by Van Susteren about human rights abuses, Trump replied: "Look, he's doing what he's seen done, if you look at it". As Trump said, responding to reporters' questions about the dictator's abysmal human rights record, Kim may not be "nice". If Kim ever feared that Trump might order a preemptive military strike, those worries have subsided.
