Vladimir Putin invites Kim Jong Un to Russian Federation

The two leaders shake hands as the summit begins

At a news conference before leaving the Singapore summit, Trump also speculated on the long-term possibility of withdrawing the 28,500 US troops in Korea if the initial agreement with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un leads to denuclearization and peace.

Pyongyang understood the need for a "quick" denuclearisation process which would be based on "conditions" and "sequencing", Pompeo said following joint talks in Seoul with his South Korean and Japanese counterparts, Kang Kyung-hwa and Taro Kono respectively.

Earlier today, North Korean state media reported that Trump made concessions to Kim that were not in the statement signed by the leaders - including Trump agreeing to "the principle of step-by-step and simultaneous action" rather than the US administration's prior demands for rapid denuclearization. "President Trump made that clear", Pompeo said. "Only then will there be relief from the sanctions".

Pompeo is pushing back on a report from North Korean official state media that said President Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un had agreed to a "step-by-step" process.

"I mean, I could go through a lot of nations where a lot of bad things were done", Trump said in an interview that aired Wednesday on Fox News when he was asked about the "bad things" Kim had done.

During his return, Trump spoke with South Korean Prime Minister Moon Jae-in and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.

South Korea's Blue House offered cautious assent to Trump's controversial statement Wednesday that the us would halt "war games" on the Korean Peninsula, saying the suspension of joint military drills may be necessary to assist in denuclearization talks, according to Yonhap news agency. In exchange, the United States pledged to make unspecified "security guarantees" and stop joint military exercises with South Korea. That was interpreted as meaning the US would grant concessions to North Korea concessions along the way despite longstanding USA insistence that it would not. The footage set off a debate about whether the benefits of showing mutual respect to the general outweighed the fact that North Koreans could use the film as a propaganda tool to bolster their own credibility. I said can you close it up.

They ignored a shouted question from an American journalist about President Donald Trump's decision to halt joint U.S.

As an "important party", China offered to assist North Korea and the U.S. in further talks and in implementing decisions made at the summit.

North Korea says it will destroy a large-scale facility in Tongchang-ri, in North Pyongan Province, that was used to test engines for the Hwasong-14 intercontinental ballistic missile, South Korea's Chosun Ilbo newspaper reported. Kim Jong-un indicated that in Singapore and shared that vision.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is expected to testify before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee as early as next week.

Mr Pompeo said the brief, four-point joint statement that emerged from the summit did not encapsulate all the progress the United States and North Korea had made.

"There is no longer a Nuclear Threat from North Korea", he asserted on Twitter.

In Washington on Wednesday, Trump, back from his first encounter with Kim, hailed the Singapore summit as a major win, declaring the DPRK no longer poses a nuclear threat.
