Trump Says Kim Will Move Immediately on Denuclearization

Trump Says Kim Will Move Immediately on Denuclearization

Donald Trump's summit in Singapore may have been the first time a sitting United States president has met a North Korean leader at the negotiating table but it follows a long history of high level American engagement with Pyongyang over its nuclear ambitions. I really think Otto is someone who did not die in vain. North Korea first started operating a small reactor tailored for making weapons-grade plutonium in 1986.

"Otto Warmbier is a very special person and he will be for a very long time in my life".

"But again, as we learn from the past, North Korea will agree to take these steps, but you can't trust them ultimately to fulfill what they commit to", he said.

Trump and Kim's joint pledge to work toward "complete denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula" was widely interpreted as failing to convince North Korea to accept Washington's definition that calls for Pyongyang to get rid of its arsenal.

Earlier Tuesday, after his historic summit with Kim, Trump said the meeting between the two leaders may not have happened if not for the death of Otto Warmbier.

The Trump-Kim summit, unthinkable just a few months ago, is yet more vindication of the Cold War doctrine of deterrence where the capacity and threat to inflict pain augments the force of diplomacy, and can prompt "rogue" regimes to display a strong survival instinct.

The Wyoming, Ohio, native was in North Korea with a tour group when he was detained for allegedly stealing a propaganda poster from a hotel. Trump tweeted in September 2017 that Warmbier "was tortured beyond belief by North Korea".

U.S. Senator Rob Portman of OH said on Tuesday that the day he joined Warmbier's parents to welcome their son home almost a year ago "is a constant reminder to me about the evil nature of this regime". Now, it seems he's admitted that he sometimes "felt foolish" when harshly addressing North Korea and its Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un, but he also felt it was a necessary tactic to unite the two countries.

Mintaro Oba, a former US State Department diplomat specialising in the Koreas, said the summit was more about style and symbolism.
