North Korea: Trump has agreed to step-by-step denuclearization

Traders work on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange  in New York U.S

"Until such time as North Korea takes concrete steps to denuclearize, our policy should be to continue the maximum pressure campaign", he said. The senator added that because of Trump's comments referring to the end of the exercises, "that's why I said there needs to be some clarification".

Iran said Monday that North Korea should be wary of negotiating with Trump in light of his withdrawal from the landmark agreement, which the Obama administration had reached with Iran, Britain, France, Germany, China and Russian Federation.

In April, Kim and South Korean President Moon Jae-in had held a historic summit to bring lasting peace in the Korean Peninsula.

The summit between the two leaders occurred on Monday evening USA time and Tuesday in Singapore, ending with Trump and Kim vowing to "denuke" North Korea. According to current reports, it ended amicably with the two shaking hands and smiling, though details of their plan still need to be hashed out.

"I think China may be concerned about losing their leverage over North Korea and fears that North Korea and the USA may enter into an anti-Chinese alignment", said Charles Armstrong, a historian on Korean affairs at Columbia University in NY. North Korea also insists that the USA troop presence in the South, as well as its nuclear "umbrella" over allies Seoul and Tokyo, are part of America's "hostile" policy toward the North. In case of the U.S. and North Korea, it didn't happen as extensively as one would expect for North Korea is too isolated a country yet to engage in all-out diplomatic parleys.

Currently, the United States has 28,500 personnel in South Korea.

"I think Iran is a different country now than it was three or four months ago", he added.

The U.S. Forces Korea (USFK) said Tuesday that it had received "no updated guidance" yet related to the regular exercises with South Korea that President Donald Trump said he will stop.

Ms Bishop's opposition counterpart Penny Wong echoed concerns that North Korea might not follow through on its promise.

"Now would not be the time to ease global sanctions against North Korea".

The summit was the first in history between a sitting U.S. President and a DPRK leader.

"There is no single change in the suspension of the South-U.S. joint military exercise compared to the past", Nam said.

Pressed on whether he was surprised by the decision to halt the military drills, spokeswoman Dana White said: "There were no surprises".

Tuesday saw Trump describe Kim as "a very talented man" and say he had "developed a very special bond" with the DPRK leader.
