Korean president says Trump-Kim border meeting amounted to end of hostilities

U.S. President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un meet at the Korean Demilitarized Zone

A Deal With North Korea?

During the brief meeting, Trump praised Kim for appearing open to continuing talks in the future, which he hopes will end in the denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula.

So you tell me that if by building a nuclear bomb, Kim Jong Un has managed to make friends with Trump, and has anti-communists willing to accept a little murder now and then - do you think he is ever going to de-nuke himself?

Trump said he was "proud" to step over the borderline and thanked Kim for showing up for the meeting.

After their latest meeting, Trump said he and Kim agreed to start working-level talks on a denuclearisation deal, ending a standstill in place since the two leaders' second summit, in Hanoi in late February, ended without an agreement.

For right now, the meeting between Trump and Kim amounts to nothing more than an historic photo-op and yuge propaganda coup for the North Korean leader Trump once dismissed as little Rocketman.

Chinese President Xi Jinping urged US President Donald Trump to "show flexibility" towards North Korea, including the "timely" easing of sanctions, at the G20 summit last week, China's foreign minister said Tuesday.

With no diplomatic presence in North Korea, Australia has mounted an aggressive search for Sigley through third parties. South Korea's President Moon Jae-in calls the recent U.S. President Donald Trump returned to the White House Sunday night after a four-day visit to Asia highlighted by a history-making, if brief, side trip to North Korea.

The incident has raised concerns about potential lapses in South Korea's security during fragile talks to end a technical state of war with North Korea since the 1950-53 Korean War. South Korea's military say it has detected an "unidentified object" flying near the border with North Korea.
