Kim summit: Interpreters have massive role to play in talks like these

That's a solid turnaround for him since a CNN poll last November showed 35% approval of Trump's handling of North Korea.

Sen. Cory Gardner (R-Colo.) said the summit "must be followed by multiple meetings to test North Korea's promises of denuclearization, which they have made in the past and then repeatedly violated".

In April, Kim and South Korean President Moon Jae-in had held a historic summit to bring lasting peace in the Korean Peninsula. Then he said: "We will be stopping the war games, which will save us a tremendous amount of money unless and until we see the future negotiation is not going along like it should".

It appears follow-up talks to the North Korea-US summit will be essential, as the agreement reached on Tuesday on North Korea's denuclearization was made at a broad level without details.

"Kim Jong Un clarified the stand that if the U.S. side takes genuine measures for building trust in order to improve the DPRK-U.S. relationship, the DPRK, too, can continue to take additional good-will measures of next stage commensurate with them", the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) said in a statement, according to South Korean news agency Yonhap.

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

In the domestic front, Trump is likely to tout his diplomatic engagement with North Korea as proof he is working to protect the United States as part of his "America First" agenda, although the summit did not appear to yield specific safeguards against Pyongyang's long-range nuclear missiles.

Donald Trump's dramatic meeting with North Korea's leader may have been choreographed to look like a Nixon-goes-to-China moment, but the summit appears to have failed to secure any concrete commitments by Pyongyang for dismantling its nuclear arsenal.

Annual military drills between Washington and Seoul have been a major source of contention between the Koreas for years, and analysts have wondered whether their continuation would hurt the inter-Korean detente that, since an outreach by Kim in January, has replaced last year's insults and threats of war. The agreement required Iran to curb its uranium enrichment in exchange for relief from worldwide sanctions.

The joint agreement states the USA and North Korea will commit to hold follow-up negotiations at the earliest possible date to carry out the agreement reached at the summit. -South Korea alliance is the US troops stationed in South Korea and the joint U.S.
