Singapore Offers to Pick up Kim Jong-un's Bills

When Singaporean Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong visited the global media center for the summit at F1 Pit Building on Sunday, he said it will cost the city state "around 20 million Singaporean dollars" (W16.1 billion, US$1=W1,078) to host the "historic summit".

Via Congressional Quarterly foreign policy reporter Rachel Oswald, a reporter questioning Pompeo about talks with North Korea asked him how he could make sure the country had committed to allowing inspectors in to verify denuclearization when there was nothing about verifying disarmament in the joint statement signed by both countries.

Trump at a news conference Tuesday after the summit suddenly announced that he would end "provocative" and "expensive" joint military operations between the United States and South Korea, declaring "I think it's inappropriate to have war games" while negotiations were underway.

"North Korea has great potential for the future!"

Trump was also optimistic about the progress they achieved, stating, "We are going to take care of a very big and very risky problem for the world".

Trump, who returned to Washington early on Wednesday, hailed the meeting with Kim, the first between a sitting USA president and a North Korean leader, as a success that had removed the North Korean nuclear threat.

But much of the fear over imminent war previous year was stoked in the first place by Trump's "fire and fury" rhetoric and boasts about the size of the U.S. nuclear button. Meeting with Kim Jong Un was an interesting and very positive experience.

The significance of the rule is a player can appear in those limited number of games at any point in the season. Even with the new rule, conferences could still restrict athletes from transferring within the league.

President Obama said that North Korea was our biggest and most risky problem.

Given the broad scope of the eventual declaration - which critics say made little actual progress towards denuclearisation - officials from the United States and North Korea face a long and rocky road of negotiation.

The welcome from Japan was conspicuously less effusive than from other countries, with Tokyo under direct threat from North Korean missiles and reliant on the USA for its defence.

Trump's rush to claim credit for the supposed disappearance of the North Korean nuclear threat may also give nations like China and Russian Federation an incentive to ease stringent implementation of the "maximum pressure" sanctions that helped bring Pyongyang to the table. There is no longer a Nuclear Threat from North Korea.

Well, Judy, we want diplomacy to win here.

Ultimately, that may end up being the only option that the U.S. has short of war.
