Secretary of State: NYT Report is Mistaken, President Trump is Prepared for Summit

Donald Trump's summit in Singapore may have been the first time a sitting USA president has met a North Korean leader at the negotiating table but it follows a long history of high level American engagement with Pyongyang over its nuclear ambitions.

He lionised Trump for achieving "a feat that no one else has ever delivered", adding Kim would also be remembered as "a leader who made a historic moment by taking the first bold step toward the world".

"Today I assured his dad, as the president said two days ago, their beloved son, Otto Warmbier, will not have died in vain", Pence said.

"USFK has received no updated guidance on execution or cessation of training exercises - to include this fall's schedule Ulchi Freedom Guardian", US Forces in Korea lieutenant-colonel Jennifer Lovett said in a statement.

A joint declaration after the first meeting between a USA president and a North Korean leader called the summit "an epochal event of great significance in overcoming decades of tensions and hostilities between the two countries and for the opening up of a new future".

Trump's comments came in response to a reporter's asking why he was "so comfortable" calling Kim "very talented".

He had been imprisoned in North Korea from January 2016 after being sentenced to 15 years of hard labour for trying to steal an item bearing a propaganda slogan from his hotel, North Korea state media said.

The final point on the document calls for North Korea to work with the USA in helping them recover the remains of prisoners of war and those missing in action - including immediately repatriating any bodies which have already been identified. The lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C., seeks compensation for the death of their 22-year-old son in June 2017.

Cindy Warmbier said Otto was brain dead at four months of captivity, and anyone who had a heart would have said, 'Well, we screwed up, let's get him some medical care'. "We will be there together with North Korea along the way", Moon said in a statement.

Mintaro Oba, a former US State Department diplomat specialising in the Koreas, said the summit was more about style and symbolism.
