"Most certainly in the president's first term", he said, speaking to a pool of journalists in Seoul, South Korea, where he was meeting his South Korean and Japanese counterparts.

Mr Pompeo has travelled to South Korea to brief the US's regional allies on the agreement, and on Mr Trump's surprise announcement that he was ending the routine US-South Korea military drills which have so angered North Korea.

"The US-DPRK summit - the first in history - was an epochal event of great significance in overcoming decades of tensions and hostilities between the two countries and for the opening up of a new future", Trump and Kim's joint statement read. Many observers say the agreement does little to reduce North Korea's stockpile of weapons.

For the average North Korean, the state media's coverage of Kim's diplomatic blitz this year must seem nothing short of astonishing.

The United States did, however, commit to suspending joint military exercises with South Korea, Trump told reporters before departing the summit site.

South Korea will have to be flexible when it comes to military pressure on North Korea if it is honest about denuclearization, and it will review its position on military exercises with the United States, President Moon Jae-in said on Thursday.

While the Korean Central News Agency said Trump agreed to "lift sanctions" as relations improve, the secretary reiterated that would only come after Kim dismantles his nuclear program.

However, in the joint statement signed by the USA and North Korea, it only says that the country is committed to "working toward complete denuclearization". "They are fighting hard to downplay the deal with North Korea".

On nuclear weapons, Mr Kim "reaffirmed his firm and unwavering commitment to complete denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula".

He says Trump and Kim Jong Un had a "blunt conversation" about changes needed for North Korea to rejoin the world community.

He tweeted: 'Just landed - a long trip, but everybody can now feel much safer than the day I took office.

The four-minute long video, complete with movie trailer-style voiceover, shows scenes of high-tech societies and everyday America, contrasted with images of traditional and contemporary Korean life, spliced with shots of rockets and North Korean militarism.

In the video, Kim can also be seen lounging in his swanky room at the St. Regis Singapore, one of the most luxurious hotels on the island city-state, and heading out for an evening tour the night before the summit. "He's an incredible guy", Trump said.

Tokyo is working on arranging a meeting between the prime minister, Shinzo Abe, and Kim, with one possibility being an Abe visit to Pyongyang around August, the Yomiuri newspaper reported.

A Japanese government source familiar with the matter told Reuters officials aimed to discuss a summit with North Korean officials at a regional security conference in Mongolia on Thursday and Friday. Trump has labeled Trudeau "weak" and "dishonest" after the Canadian leader pushed back on USA tariffs.

Wang said China has stayed in communication on the "so-called sonic attack" adding that China will "continue to protect the lawful right and interests of all diplomats in China, including those from United States". Regarding the alliance, we are dealing with all the issues under the premise that we maintain the ironclad joint defense posture.

Trump's move to meet with Kim has been hailed by world leaders as a great step toward peace, and Trump's stated goal in taking the meeting was to disarm North Korea.

The U.S. has stationed combat troops in South Korea since the end of the Korean War and has used them in a variety of drills.
