Australia says end to South Korea-US war games not a certainty

Australia says end to South Korea-US war games not a certainty

The priority treatment of what even Pyongyang is calling the "historic" meeting between Kim and Trump in Singapore underscores just how much of a propaganda coup the North saw in Tuesday's unprecedented summit.

Trump's North Korean counterpart had also attended a meeting with PM Lee at the Istana yesterday for a half-hour session.

"In his haste to reach an agreement, President Trump elevated North Korea to the level of the United States while preserving the regime's status quo", Pelosi said in a statement.

This is not the first time Kim has showed his fluency of diplomatic language.

Trump praised Kim in an interview with ABC News after the summit where he stated, "His country does love him".

"We have a very interesting meeting in particular tomorrow, and I think things can work out very nicely", Trump said as he began the working lunch.

The video mixes both Hollywood and propaganda film tropes that play over a pulsing orchestral score.

Mr. Cronin suggested Mr. Trump had not made a major concession.

Sen. Cory Gardner cautioned that the summit "must be followed by multiple meetings to test North Korea's promises of denuclearization, which they have made in the past and then repeatedly violated".

To illustrate the point, ballistic missiles are shown in reverse motion, pulling back into their launch silos.

Japan, the chief USA ally in the region, got none of what it wanted - Kim made no promise to address the issue of Japanese citizens abducted by North Korea, and he offered no limits on his ballistic missile programs.

Some of their numbers particularly probably didn't look as appealing to the outside looker, but they were always locked in. I'd been talking about how great they were. "That's the type of attitude and effort you love to be a part of", he said.

Members of Canada's Korean community are watching the evolving relationship between U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korea's leader with feelings that range from fascination to anxiety.

The credit on the video said it was produced by Destiny Pictures, which disrupted the morning of Mark Castaldo, who owns a Los Angeles-based production company with the same name, albeit with a different logo than the one in the video.

The likelihood of Kim Jong Un launching a first strike against the USA, thereby bringing on "fire and fury", was low.

Speaking from the Senate floor on Tuesday, Schumer lamented that Trump had granted "a brutal and repressive dictatorship the worldwide legitimacy it has long craved".

A South Korean lawmaker with the ruling Democratic Party of Korea said Kim's initial performance appeared rehearsed.

Although human rights was not included in the joint statement signed by Trump and Kim, the United States president said he raised the issue and he believed the North Korean leader wanted to "do the right thing".

"One moment. One choice".

The US had previously ruled out suspending military exercises because they have been a big part of its military alliance with South Korea and a deterrent against the north.

He had been imprisoned in North Korea from January 2016 after being sentenced to 15 years of hard labor for trying to steal an item bearing a propaganda slogan from his hotel, North Korea state media said.

How did South Korea react?

And as reactions are starting to pour in from world leaders, it is important to remember that the summit has given the DPRK legitimacy on the world stage, while there was little talk of how this legitimacy was acquired: essentially by developing nuclear weapons. I think he's going to start now. The KCNA report called the military drills a "provocation" - the same word used by Trump in Singapore to describe the decision.
