Who gained and who lost what from the Trump Kim summit

Who gained and who lost what from the Trump Kim summit

Hours after talks between North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and U.S. President Donald Trump in Singapore, Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said the Security Council's sanctions against North Korea were created to be adjusted and could be suspended or lifted in accordance with the North's actions. On May 24, North Korea began demolishing its Punggye-ri nuclear test site.

He said the North Koreans are expert at staging two-act plays, with the "first act, provocation, second act, placation".

"He, Kim Jong Un, has been signaling that there's a new Sheriff in town".

"I'm very troubled today".

"Trump is being played in a major way". In a later interview with the Voice of America, Trump said the North Koreas were "very happy" about his decision to freeze the exercises "because it is so provocative". "So he has initiated a process where he, Kim Jong-un, is going to be seen as this accommodating statesman who is, at least according to Mr. Trump, seriously going to pursue denuclearization".

Kim Jong Un invited Donald Trump to visit North Korea during their historic summit and the US President accepted, Pyongyang state media reported Wednesday, calling it the start of a "radical switchover" in the nuclear-armed Cold War foes' fraught relations. In front of a throng of clicking, flashing cameras aimed by some of the 2,500 reporters who had traveled to the island of Sentosa to cover the summit, Trump and Kim strode out from opposite flanks of a red-carpeted stage, met in the middle, and shook hands for about 10 seconds. But she also showed a wavering sentiment, saying, "While I think that things will not go in line with our wish, I hold the hope that things may go into a good direction". "There the clear answer is no". He got no commitments.

"So basically, this was a meet and greet". "I would like to express my gratitude to President Trump". Instead, he said Trump offered to end military exercises "in exchange for the mere hope that North Korea will freeze its illegal nuclear testing regime". Trump, however, said on June 2 that the U.S.

"That's a far more credible attack and a far more intellectually consistent position than trying to out-hawk Trump on North Korea", he said.

Even if Trump did not succeed as a dealmaker, though, Ross said the summit could have benefits if it's the beginning of a gradual opening of North Korea.

"It's too early to trust North Korea", said Shin Hyun-song, 63. "What North Korea has gained, however, is tangible and lasting", Schumer said from the Senate floor.

Nor were there any U.S. concessions on sanctions relief, normalisation of relations absent progress in human rights or a more extensive security guarantee to the regime than previously provided, he said.

"A USA administration noted for being intemperate and impulsive demonstrated considerable professionalism - a pleasant surprise", he said.

What exactly did North Korea get out of the deal?
