At the historic summit between the two leaders on Tuesday, Mr. Trump said he agreed to halt all joint US military exercises with South Korea and consider reducing USA forces there.

While Japan is concerned about their citizens who were abducted decades ago by Pyongyang, the signed paper makes no specific reference to abductees in North Korea when referring to the repatriation of the remains of prisoners of war and people killed during fighting.

Nearly as remarkable as the summit itself was the press conference that Trump gave later in the afternoon, after Kim had left, to the gathered worldwide press corps at the Capella Hotel.

"We're starting that process very quickly". Mr Trump said he wanted to see USA troops withdraw from the South.

When relations between the USA and the DPRK thawed slightly between 1990 and 2005, a repatriation agreement allowed 229 sets of remains to come home to American families.

During his talk with Hannity, Trump said his inflammatory rhetoric helped spur this new meeting. If Kim ever feared that Trump might order a preemptive military strike, those worries have subsided. His elevated status is a direct benefit of Trump's decision to meet with him on equal diplomatic footing.

"It shows what a weak negotiator the president is and how unlikely we are to ultimately get an agreement that's good for us", Murphy told IJR "They made no concessions, we made an enormous concession - so much for the art of the deal".

Previous year saw the pair sling various insults at each other, while North Korea conducted several ballistic missile tests in defiance of the global community.

Trump had a 40-minute private talk with Kim (with translators present), followed by an expanded bilateral talk and working lunch.

American and North Korean diplomats were, however, struggling to bridge gaps on some of the most basic issues dividing the two sides, including the terms and timing under which the North would surrender its nuclear arsenal.

During an interview with the Associated Press, Former New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson said he has resigned from an advisory panel trying to tackle the massive Rohingya refugee crisis, January 24, 2018, in Yangon, Myanmar.

"Well, he is very talented", Mr Trump said.

I showed it to him today, actually, during in meeting, towards the end of the meeting and I think he loved it.

Japan has remained a steadfast ally of the United States and South Korea dating back to the 1950s against the North Korean regime and recently placed a number of sanctions on North Korean entities in an attempt to exert pressure on the regime.

He added that U.S. college student Otto Warmbier did not die in vain, for his death had helped initiate the process that led to the summit.

The meeting was the first time a sitting U.S. president has met North Korea's leader.

The agreement is "not as strong as the framework under the Clinton administration", she said, but called it an important step nonetheless given the history of very public tension between the two leaders. As Trump said, responding to reporters' questions about the dictator's abysmal human rights record, Kim may not be "nice".

"Today we had a historic meeting and made a decision to leave the past behind", Kim said, speaking through a translator. Mr Trump said he wanted to see USA troops withdraw from the South.
