North Korea hopes for sporting change in wake of summit

North Korea hopes for sporting change in wake of summit

"Making a deal is a great thing for the world, it's also a great thing for China, I can't imagine that China is happy with someone having nuclear weapons so close", Mr Trump told reporters in Singapore after his historic meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

Donald Trump says he wants Americans to "sit up" and pay attention when he speaks, like North Koreans do with Kim Jong-un - but later watered down his comments, saying they were a joke.

"Kim promised Trump during their summit on Tuesday to dismantle this facility", a diplomatic source said told Chosun Ilbo.

"He can now call me if he has any difficulties, I can call him", Trump said. The administration grabbed headlines by producing a propaganda-esque, movie trailer-style video directed at North Korea that paints Trump and Kim as two leaders on the cusp of greatness. "I want my people to do the same", he added.

"When I came in, people thought we were probably going to war with North Korea", he said. I can only speak to the fact that we signed an incredible agreement, it's great.

Since returning from his summit with Kim, Trump has referred to Kim as "funny", "smart", "very talented", and someone who "loves his people".

Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un met face-to-face for the first time in Singapore on June 12. Don't let anyone think anything different.

"President Moon said if North Korea implements denuclearization measures and honest dialogue continues between South Korea and the North, the North and the United States, to ease their hostile relations, the country needs to flexibly change its military pressure against the North in the spirit of building mutual trust as agreed in the Panmunjom Declaration", a spokesman for the Blue House, South Korea's presidential palace, said. Kim underlines the point by publicly executing his own cabinet officials who don't pay enough deference to him in cabinet meetings. Actually, I think sarcasm is one thing reporters do understand.

Human Rights Watch has dubbed North Korea one of the "most repressive authoritarian states in the world".

North Korea has long labeled the larger exercises as acts of aggression. "Nauseating to see Trump stiff our allies in Canada and then praise Kim while saluting his generals".

North Korea proposed to Seoul to disarm, on a trial basis, the Joint Security Area in Panmunjom, the only site in the Demilitarized Zone where both countries' soldiers stand nearly face to face, the South's presidential spokesman said.
