Poll shows most South Koreans view summit positively

Abe has already said publicly that he would be willing to meet Kim in order to resolve the abduction issue.

In recent months, Trump has proudly asserted that it was his maximum pressure and engagement strategy that brought Kim to the negotiating table. "You know what gets you nuclear war?" "It is simply unbelievable that Trump flew all the way to Singapore to end up with the short end of the stick". In a joint statement, both sides said the diplomatic outreach would lead to "the promotion of peace, prosperity, and security of the Korean Peninsula and of the world".

The Korean crisis began to thaw at the start of 2018 when Kim announced his decision to resume talks on denuclearization. It was an unprecedented encounter that saw the leader of the world's most powerful democracy shake hands with the third-generation scion of a dynastic dictatorship. If we did, millions of people would have been killed, he said.

"We have a really great relationship [with North Korea] for the first time ever, no president's ever had this", he said.

"I don't want to see a nuclear weapon destroy you and your family", he told reporters. "If there's a chance at peace, if there's a chance to end the disgusting threat of nuclear conflict, then we must pursue it at all cost", the U.S. president said.

The North Koreans and Americans also chose to hold more talks and likely another leader-to-leader summit, Trump said, an acknowledgement that the issue won't be resolved in a single day. Kim is about 170 centimeters (5.8 feet) tall, about 20 centimeters (7.2 inches) shorter than Trump, according to media reports. Some analysts said Kim's government was likely to use the image in its propaganda campaigns as a victory for Pyongyang because it suggests the American commander in chief defers to the North Korean military.

Trump was met with criticism this week after footage surfaced of him saluting a North Korean general.

The joint statement signed this past week by Trump and Kim promises they will work toward a denuclearized Korean Peninsula, but includes no details on how or when weapons might be eliminated or even reduced.

But Trump recalled that when he came to office a year ago his predecessor Barack Obama had warned that North Korea's growing missile and nuclear threat was the United States "most risky problem". "I can only speak to the fact that we signed an incredible agreement".

US and South Korean forces have trained together for decades, and routinely rehearse everything from beach landings in the North to pre-emptive "decapitation" strikes targeting the North Korean regime. "I think it's great to give him credibility".

Trump defended his salute in his Friday interview with Fox.

During the summit, Kim and Trump exchanged views on the situation in Korea. He said it's meaningful in itself that the leaders of the United States and North Korea met, talked and signed an agreement that will carry more weight and significance than any pact previously made between the wartime foes.
