Elias-Fatile stated that the meeting which resulted to the signing of a statement by the two leaders emphasised the establishment of new relationship between them.
Pentagon officials scrambled for a clear message on Tuesday about the USA military presence in South Korea, after President Donald Trump vowed at his summit with the North's leader Kim Jong Un to cancel "provocative" joint drills.
"In the short term, President Trump can claim he defused a very risky situation, but it's going to come back to haunt the U.S. and its allies because basically Trump has unintentionally, but in real terms, given a blank check, a free pass, to Kim to carry on, to basically continue what he's doing", as sanctions enforcement is eased, Lee said.
Trump gave no further details, but previous statements demanded that North Korean effectively eliminate its nuclear program before any US concessions can be considered.
In this January 2016 US Air Force handout photo, a US Air Force B-52 Stratofortress from Andersen Air Force Base, Guam, conducts a low-level flight in the vicinity of Osan Air Base, South Korea, in response to provocative action by North Korea. Nevertheless, it's striking that the Trump offered to lead with that rather than holding out to include it as a sweetener somewhere down the line.
The document mentioned denuclearisation but not the United States demand of "complete, verifiable and irreversible denuclearisation (CVID)".
Trump won too, however.
"It was not easy to get here", Mr. Kim later told reporters.
Jim Carrey shared his newest drawing early Tuesday, this one seemingly taking aim at President Trump and North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un amid their historic summit in Singapore.
Kim and Trump invited each other to their respective countries and both leaders "gladly accepted", KCNA reported. "I think without Otto, this would not have happened", Trump said.
"Following the right path now will bring a prosperous and secure future for North Korea".
That suggested that any lasting benefit to Trump on the world stage or at home will depend on whether, in the next stages of negotiations, he can turn the summit's made-for-TV script into tangible progress toward Pyongyang's nuclear disarmament. Although it was only on the periphery of the summit, that trend continued this week.
Yonhap reports that South Korea hopes to begin a major project to recover the remains of soldiers from the De-Militarized Zone between the two Koreas, an initiative South Korean President Moon Jae-in described in his Memorial Day speech.
"This person is not a wise representative for the US", he said, taking a direct shot at Mr. Trump during Tuesday's press conference in Tehran, Iranian state news outlet Fars News reported.
The analyst, Moon, advised the North's report should be confirmed from the USA side, while another expert agreed the North Korean state media should be taken with a grain of salt. She said that as a Japanese citizen, she wants the leaders to take up the issue of Japanese abducted by North Korea. The U.S., in other words, looks set to become a more marginal player in Asia, much to the delight of Beijing.
"At this moment, we need to figure out President Trump's accurate meaning and intention", his office said in a statement on Tuesday. But every time the USA kicks the can, it gets closer to the cliff's edge.
