Following the meeting between U.S. president Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un in Singapore, China's foreign minister Wang Yi hailed China's "indisputable" role in the process.

Around Asia and the world, many have welcomed a flurry of diplomacy between the two adversaries in recent months, after a year of mounting tension and threats.

"The crux of the peninsula nuclear issue is a security issue".

"I must have had just countless calls and letters and tweets, anything you can do - they want the remains of their sons back", he said.

It is still unclear what Trump meant and intended by stopping "war games" - whether the announcement aims to suspend semiannual large-scale exercises or whether it is just another gambit to put pressure on South Korea to pay more for stationing USA troops.

The US president also said he wants to withdraw American troops stationed in South Korea, like he had promised during his election campaign. "Singapore, Tokyo, China. It's a great day".

Hyuki Ahn, who is the Jecheon, South Korea, society president of the Sister Cities Association of Spokane, said she has been talking with siblings in South Korea daily about the summit.

This is not the first time he has referenced a ice-gun when addressing the tunnelling startup's future products on social media. The billionaire posted a warning to Twitter Saturday: "Please use as directed to avoid unintentionally burning things down".

Ending what Trump referred to as "war games" - the annual joint military exercises between the United States and South Korea - was one of the biggest wins Kim secured during the landmark meeting in Singapore earlier Tuesday.

"The man is way out of his depth", he said of Trump.

"Sanctions are not an end", he said.

The agreement has four points, with the third stating that 'the DPRK (Democratic People's Republic of Korea) commits to work toward complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula'. Donald Trump, Rodman said, should get credit for this because he is the person who made it all happen.

Mr Rodman is one of the few Westerners to have met the North Korean leader on visits to the capital city of Pyongyang.

The president did not explain how the death of an American while being held hostage in North Korea led to peace, however. Both leaders also noted that it is "important to abide by the principle of step-by-step and simultaneous action in achieving peace, stability and denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula", KCNA reported.
