After the talks, the USA president said that the process of denuclearisation on the Korean peninsula will begin very soon and the North Korean leader promised to leave the past behind.

North Korea's supreme leader, Kim Jong-un, has agreed to repatriate the remains of American soldiers killed in action during the Korean War, NPR reports.

The United States and the DPRK commit to establish new U.S. -DPRK relations in accordance with the desire of the peoples of the two countries for peace and prosperity.

Following diplomatic meetings with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, President Donald Trump told Fox News' Sean Hannity that he believes the North Korean regime will begin working toward denuclearization "virtually immediately".

Trump's surprise, nearly offhand comments, made during a news conference after his summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, seemingly upended decades of the USA defense posture on the Korean Peninsula.

"We're not reducing anything", Trump said. But she also showed a wavering sentiment, saying, "While I think that things will not go in line with our wish, I hold the hope that things may go into a good direction".

Other pages showed USA and North Korean officials having their extended meeting, a working lunch and later, Trump and Kim signing a joint agreement that marked the end to the summit.

Trump gave no further details, but previous statements demanded that North Korean effectively eliminate its nuclear program before any USA concessions can be considered.

South Korea's presidential office said that it needs to seek clarity on Mr Trump's intentions after he said that Washington will stop joint military exercises.

"The denuclearisation pledge is diluted from the Six-Party Talks provision, and there was no mention of North Korea moving towards CVID as the administration had hinted at", Dr Bruce Klingner, senior research fellow for North-east Asia at USA think-tank The Heritage Foundation, told The Straits Times.

But US officials told AFP they were taken aback by the news, and Pentagon personnel spent the morning in meetings discussing what could amount to an epic shift in the US military's posture in South Korea.

For years, China has wanted tensions to cool on the neighboring Korean peninsula and for the U.S.to scale back its military operations in China's Asian backyard. "This is a win for North Korea, which seems to have yielded nothing".

There was even a touch of warmth over the side-by-side stroll by Trump and Kim on the grounds of the hotel used for the summit venue.

Quite a bit, compared to the U.S.

After Tuesday's talks, Trump said no sanctions would be lifted until the roll-back of the North's nuclear capabilities reached "a certain point".

"I'd say he was overly eager to have a successful summit at the expense of South Korea's confidence in American commitment to US-South Korean defense cooperation", he said. 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.

Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW), NPR noted, sent a letter to President Donald Trump back in June this year, urging him to make the issue part of the president's negotiation with North Korea's supreme leader.
