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

President Trump meets with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in historic summit

At a certain point, I really think he's going to do something about it.

Addressing reporters later, Trump said he showed the video on an iPad to about eight members of the North Korean delegation, including Kim, whose father and former leader Kim Jong-il was a long-time movie buff. 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".

Pyongyang has demanded the end of what it calls a "hostile policy" towards it, but in public has only pledged to pursue the denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula - a euphemism open to wide differences of interpretation.

A spokeswoman for U.S. military forces in Korea said it had not received any direction to cease joint military drills. "You know, he can have a membership at Trump National", Graham said on CBS, referring to Trump's golf course.

After the summit, Trump also told the media that North Korea will start the process of denuclearization "immediately", but no specific time frame has been given. "Trump turned a blind eye to differences of principle and history - refusing to directly confront the reality that Kim oversees a vast police state, starves his citizens and assassinates his rivals - in the interest of completing a transaction". Because of North Korea's variable seasons, which include cold and dry winters, Davis said the group hopes the recovery effort will yield full skeletal remains with identification cards still attached to uniforms.

Trump also said that he would be willing to invite Kim to visit the White House following this first meeting.

At the heart of negotiations was the "complete, verifiable and irreversible denuclearization" of the Korean peninsula in exchange for "security guarantees" for the North's mercurial leader, Kim Jong Un.

At the Shangri La defence dialogue in Singapore earlier this month, South Korea's defence minister Song Young-moo said that the American military's activities in South Korea was "a separate issue from North Korea's nuclear issue".

Mr Trump later said he would halt United States military exercises in South Korea, something widely seen as a concession.

"It was not easy to get here", Kim said of the meeting.

Asked whether the White House had been in contact, Rodman said Trump's secretary had called him to say "Donald Trump is so proud of you, he says thank you".

"And I didn't understand and expect all of the things when I went over there".
