White House: Trump salute to NK general 'a common courtesy'

US President Donald Trump and North Korea's leader Kim Jong Un leave after signing documents that acknowledge the progress of the talks and pledge to keep momentum going after their summit at the Capella Hotel on Sentosa island in Singapore

President Trump returned on Wednesday from his historic summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore and issued what would be a remarkable statement - if it were true. He added that the meeting helped "push back that unfavorable scenario and raised prospects for solving all the problems with peaceful and diplomatic means".

Kim Yong-nam is the head of the Supreme People's Assembly and said Russian Federation welcomes and would be assessing the summit.

Mr Putin's invitation to Mr Kim comes after Russia's foreign minister Sergei Lavrov visited Pyongyang in May for the first time since 2009.

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

In public, at least, South Korea's leader cast the summit's outcome as positive during a short meeting with Pompeo at the Blue House, South Korea's presidential palace. They may also discuss efforts to recover the remains of soldiers missing and presumed dead from the 1950-53 Korean War.

While no guarantees were produced at the summit over how or when Pyongyang would disarm, U.S. secretary of state Mike Pompeo warned that the USA would resume military exercises with South Korea if the North stops negotiating in good faith.

For the Duchess , this will have been on the royal train in the morning, before they embarked on the day of joint engagements. The 92-year-old royal donned a Stewart Parvin dress and jacket with a color-coordinated hat by Rachel Trevor Morgan.

This has been taken to indicate that the USA would grant concessions to Pyongyang along the way.

Prompted by reporters in Seoul on Wednesday on if he would like to accomplish major nuclear disarmament within Trump's current term, which ends on Jan 20, 2021, Pompeo said, "Oh yes, most definitively".

In a post-summit announcement, Trump said on Tuesday that the USA will stop military exercises with South Korea while North Korea negotiated on denuclearization.

The issue of the South China Sea was also addressed by Pompeo at his press conference with Wang.

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

"I think he's going to do these things", Trump said.

Chinese state media described the summit as a "starting point" but said "no-one would expect the half-day summit to be able to iron out all differences and remove deep-seated mistrust between the two long-time foes". The three posed for photos before sitting with their delegations at three tables arranged in a U-shaped formation.

Japan has expressed concern, while South Korea said earlier it needed "to find out the exact meaning and intention of President Trump's remarks". The next scheduled major exercise, involving tens of thousands of troops, normally would be held in August.

"This is a matter that military officials from South Korea and the United States will have to discuss further and coordinate", Kang said.

Despite the lack of detail in the summit agreement, Trump stressed at a news conference afterward that he trusted Kim to follow through.
