Is anything out of reach after historic summit with North Korea?

President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un shared a historic handshake as they meet for the first time.

"China has consistently held that sanctions are not the goal in themselves", Geng said at a daily briefing. "But the one thing I would object to violently is withdrawing our forces from South Korea", Graham said Tuesday on "CBS This Morning".

Trump pulled back from criticizing Kim as he did during a speech before the United Nations a year ago.

Trump phoned South Korean President Moon Jae-in after leaving Singapore to brief him on the discussions.

Geng dismissed accusations from Trump that Beijing has been easing up on the sanctions, saying it is following United Nations sanctions "comprehensively, accurately and strictly".

"No-one has shown more contempt for other nations and for the wellbeing of their own people than the depraved regime in North Korea", Mr Trump said during his infamous "little rocket man" speech to the United Nations past year.

Trump and Kim signed a document on Tuesday stating that Pyongyang would work toward "complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula". This has always been a point of contention for the North Koreans, especially as the exercises have expanded to include offensive drills, but it raises the question of how this concession fits into a larger process.

All of this suggests that a wild-card president ― the last thing you want in the sensitive negotiation ― could have created serious problems, and not only for US negotiators, who will now have to iron out the details with North Korea.

He also spoke of how happy he was that Trump had agreed to meeting with Kim, which no US president has done before.

China suggests North Korea sanctions relief as Trump, Kim meet
Bush after the US accused North Korea of having an enriched uranium program, a major step in the nuclear weapon building process. However, relations with North Korea, which had seemed to go well, broke down under former President George W.

The Massachusetts Democrat, who has been one of the most outspoken critics of the Trump administration, said that "success will be judged on whether it can eliminate Kim's nuclear weapons and verify they are gone". He gave Kim a glimpse of the presidential limousine.

Trump said the US will be monitoring the situation in North Korea to be sure that Kim is committed to dismantling his country's nuclear program.

However, it now appears that the U.S.is confident tings are going smoothly.

At a news conference wrapping up the summit, Trump told reporters he and Kim "have developed a very special bond".

As for verification, Trump said he and Kim discussed the issue and that monitoring denuclearization efforts would be achieved "by having a lot of people there". Suspending the "war games" could harm US security interests in the region, which would create tension between the USA and its allies. "Think of it from the real estate perspective".

After months of negotiations, both the leaders met for a one-on-one interaction at the Capella Hotel, a secluded luxury resort on Singapore's Sentosa Island.

Ahead of the meeting Trump had predicted the two men might strike a nuclear deal or forge a formal end to the Korean War in the course of a single meeting or over several days.

Aware that the eyes of the world were on a moment many people never expected to see, Kim said many of those watching would think it was a scene from a "science fiction movie".

"This new commitment to denuclearize is actually more vague and even weaker than the 2005 six-party joint statement and the 1992 inter-Korean Joint Denuclearization Declaration", said Duyeon Kim, a research fellow at the Korean Peninsula Future Forum, describing two major diplomatic statements.
