North Korean state TV airs 1st video of Trump-Kim summit

But no rational and objective observer who followed the summit and saw Trump and Kim behaving so cordially can believe that Trump is leading the US into a nuclear war with North Korea. "Everybody can now feel much safer than the day I took office", Trump tweeted.

Also on Thursday, North and South Korea held their first military talks in more than a decade.

The likelihood of Kim Jong Un launching a first strike against the US, thereby bringing on "fire and fury", was low.

By referencing the "conflicting views", Moon appeared to be referring to Trump's unexpected promise to halt joint military exercises with South Korea, which the United States president called a "provocation" to the North.

But with North Korea, Trump has extended himself further than ever before.

Trump hailed the summit in Singapore with Kim, in which the the North Korean leader agreed to work towards denuclearizing his country, although their agreement did not say how this would be done.

"Chairman Kim Jong Un understands the urgency of the timing of completing this denuclearization, and understands we must do this quickly", Pompeo told reporters. "I'm not going to give any insight into where we are in private talks", he said.

Pompeo's comments came after North Korean state media reported Wednesday that Trump had not only offered to stop military exercises during dialogue, but also lift sanctions imposed on Pyongyang. Kono, Abe's foreign minister, said the government wasn't considering such a meeting at the moment and that high-level exchanges must resolve the issue of Japanese abductees held by North Korea.

Rubio added that if a treaty with North Korea is proposed, the Constitution outlines the necessary role of Congress in that process, which was bypassed in the Obama administration's Iran deal.

In Japan, the prospect of canceled U.S. "That we must do this quickly". "No longer - sleep well tonight!"

Trump starts to shake hands with those in the room. But the U.S. -North Korea joint declaration was vague on details, providing no clear definition on what constitutes denuclearization, set no timeline for the dismantlement process, and said nothing about outside verification requirements.

"Given that they were able to sign this agreement, it will prove that U.S. remains to be a superpower and also this will give them the right, more leverage on how they will engage with North Korea diplomatically or economically", he said.

"At the same time, we believe North Korea's reasonable security concerns should be resolved". His announcement appeared to catch both South Korea and the Pentagon by surprise.

Trump struck an optimistic tone about his talks with Kim.

Democratic critics in the United States said the agreement was short on detail and the Republican president had made too many concessions to Kim, whose country is under U.N. sanctions for its nuclear and weapons programs and is widely condemned for human rights abuses.

But big, joint U.S.

"He was unambiguous about that", Pompeo said.

Just over half of all Americans say they approve of how President Donald Trump has handled North Korea, but only a quarter think that his summit this week with Kim Jong Un will lead to the denuclearization of the Korean peninsula, according to a Reuters/Ipsos opinion poll released on Wednesday.

In February 2017, during an interview with Fox News's Bill O'Reilly, Trump said he "respects" Putin and downplayed O'Reilly's description of him as a "killer".

Pompeo, after landing in South Korea, met for almost an hour with Gen. Vincent Brooks, commander of U.S. Forces Korea.

Pompeo will meet President Moon Jae-in on Thursday morning to discuss the summit.
