How anti-Trump hysteria helps the president on North Korea

Trump has also been widely criticized for his friendliness toward North Korean leader Kim Jong-un during and after the summit.

The talks were the first of their kind between the sitting leaders of the two countries.

Pompeo said that President Donald Trump's comment about North Korea no longer posing a nuclear threat was made "with eyes wide open". The annual Ulchi Freedom Guardian joint exercise is scheduled for August.

State-run news channel KCTV broadcast the 42-minute-long video across the reclusive country on Thursday as part of a lengthy documentary about Kim's historic meeting over the weekend with President Trump, CNN reported. The statement came despite the lack of concrete proof that North Korea will discontinue its nuclear program.

Japan is expected to contribute towards the costs of North Korea's denuclearization but only after the International Atomic Energy Agency restarts inspections, a spokesman said on Wednesday.

Interested in North Korea?

But they were effectively postponed when North Korea, angered at a U.S.

Contrasting the Trump policy with previous United States administrations, Pompeo said: "In the past, they were providing economic and financial relief before. complete denuclearisation had taken place".


Trump's move had caught South Korean officials off guard, but they said a halt in the drills was needed while dialogue with the North was underway.

North Korean viewers had to wait nearly 20 minutes into the program for Trump's first appearance.

Two North Korean missiles flew over Japan a year ago as North Korea made rapid advances in developing a missile capable of striking the USA mainland with a nuclear warhead.

Trump met with Kim on Tuesday in Singapore, where the two leaders signed a vaguely worded agreement that has been criticised by many back home.

Wang said China had consistently supported the denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula but that it was impossible to solve the issue overnight. -South Korean exercises appeared off-limits under the new guidance.

As per Tuesday's declaration, Pompeo is the key official on the U.S. side charged with implementing the broad-ranging, but vague agreement signed by Kim and Trump.

"The world should rest assured that the United States, the Republic of Korea and Japan remain committed to achieving the complete, verifiable, and irreversible denuclearisation (CVID) of North Korea".

"Japan has to take the initiative to resolve the issue", he said, adding that the summit would be "meaningless if it yields no progress on the abduction issue".
