President Trump salutes Fred and Cindy Warmbier, whose son was imprisoned in North Korea and returned to America on the verge of death; pledges to honor Otto's memory with American resolve.

North Korea's leader Kim Jong Un looks at his document at a signing ceremony with President Trump.

Hayden served as director of the National Security Council during the administration of President George W. Bush and as Central Intelligence Agency chief under President Barack Obama.

The Georgian senator and member of the Armed Services Committee said he "was surprised, frankly, because the president had said earlier that that was not necessarily going to be part of the first meeting", adding that "coordination with South Korean military is absolutely critical".

China suggested the United Nations Security Council suspend or lift sanctions against North Korea on Tuesday just hours after President Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un agreed to work to denuclearize the peninsula, according to a report.

After the summit, Cardinal Andrew Yeom Soo-jung of Seoul, South Korea, and apostolic administrator of Pyeongyang, North Korea, celebrated Mass in Myeongdong Cathedral to pray for prompt execution of the summit agreement.

Warmbier, 22, was a student at the University of Virginia when he was arrested in North Korea in January 2016 for allegedly stealing a propaganda poster. For President Donald Trump, that means real estate.


I asked Trump why he didn't stay longer in Singapore and negotiate for more denuclearization details from North Korea.

"The two leaders are seeking to break out of the unsafe cycle that created so much concern previous year". When open hostilities ended in 1953 - North and South Korea are still technically at war - the support forces of both sides' allies remained on the ground.

One of the most surprising parts of the negotiations in Singapore is Trump's willingness to halt joint military exercise with South Korea, which is a USA ally.

As reports emerged that the South Korean government was surprised by the announcement, questions were raised about whether Mattis and other USA policymakers had also been caught off guard. Nor did the North Koreans.

"As an example, they have great beaches", Trump said.

Choi Seong-guk, who made cartoons depicting western spies, said: "What will make me angry [about the summit] will be seeing pictures of Kim parading around with global leaders". "We know they lived under oppression".
