Trump produced no guarantees on how or when Pyongyang would disarm following summit with Kim Jong-un
Donald Trump has declared there is “no longer a nuclear threat from North Korea”, a dubious claim following his summit with leader Kim Jong-un that produced no guarantees on how or when Pyongyang would disarm.
Tempering Trump’s very upbeat assessment, his top diplomat, Mike Pompeo, cautioned that the US would resume “war games” with its close ally South Korea if the North stops negotiating in good faith. The president had announced a halt in the military exercises after his meeting with Kim on Tuesday.
Just landed – a long trip, but everybody can now feel much safer than the day I took office. There is no longer a Nuclear Threat from North Korea. Meeting with Kim Jong Un was an interesting and very positive experience. North Korea has great potential for the future!
