United States offers 'unique' guarantees to North Korea on eve of summit

Kim and Trump Launch Nuke Talks in Reverse

Two years ago Barack Obama travelled to Cuba - and was roundly denounced by conservatives for breaking bread with totalitarian leaders and praised by liberals for his statesmanship. Ending the exercises would also save money, Trump said.

With his mouth agape, Kim's reaction to the remark appeared to be that of shock.

Kim said that the "world will see a major change" and he and Trump "decided to leave the past behind" as they put pen to paper.

International security expert and COO of Interfor International, Don Aviv, tells Inside Edition that every bit of food Kim Jong Un ate was previously examined by food tasters.

North Korea has long criticized the joint drills as rehearsals for invasion and used them to justify the building-up of its nuclear weapons program.

Aviv said the U.S "use [s] chemical tests and biological tests as opposed to someone having to taste the food". "We will be successful".

Ms Bishop has cautiously welcomed the overall progress in the summit but warned North Korea's denuclearisation must be thoroughly verified and dismissed Mr Trump's concession on military exercises.

"President Trump and Chairman Kim Jong Un conducted a comprehensive, in-depth, and honest exchange of opinions on the issues related to the establishment of new U.S. -DPRK relations and the building of a lasting and robust peace regime on the Korean Peninsula", the leaders said in a joint statement.

The result was a nascent diplomatic breakthrough after decades of hostility, but no guarantee that North Korea would follow through.

Earlier, South Korea's Presidential Blue House said it needed "to find out the precise meaning or intentions" of Mr Trump's statement. He said the United States is working on the issue with South Korea, and Japan-as well as with China, but "to a lesser extent".

Shortly after Trump's presser, a spokesperson from South Korea's Blue House (its executive branch of government) said that "the meaning and intention" of the U.S. president's remarks regarding the war games "require more clear understanding".

Trump also reaffirmed the tight US-Singapore relations by reassuring PM Lee that he was "his friend".

US Senator Rob Portman of OH said on Tuesday that the day he joined Warmbier's parents to welcome their son home almost a year ago "is a constant reminder to me about the evil nature of this regime". "Because it does not meet what I would call minimum requirements in terms of what we expect them to do and what they expect us to do".

By the time he arrived at the Capella the following morning, Kim had begun to transform his image and pictures of his tour were plastered on the news pages of his state-run media back home in North Korea. The US forces in South Korea, meanwhile, told Stars and Stripes magazine that it had not received updated guidance on cessation of training exercises, and "will continue with our current military posture until we receive updated guidance".

Trump had been scheduled to fly back to Washington tomorrow morning after spending today with Kim in Singapore, but on the eve of the summit, he altered his schedule, opting to return at about 8pm today after a full day of meetings with Kim - nearly 15 hours earlier than previously anticipated.

"We would like to seek an understanding of this between Japan, the US and South Korea", Japan's defence minister, Itsunori Onodera, said.

The video was produced by the US Government to help persuade Mr Kim to make a deal, a White House official said.

Mr Trump was asked by reporters during his final appearance with Mr Kim what surprised him most during their meetings. "But I think when you step aside from who those two people are and when you consider the history of the Korean peninsula, this is historic, and it's monumental".
