But President Trump also won't hesitate to change his tune on Kim Jong Un and North Korea if they don't follow through.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un said Donald Trump offered to lift sanctions against his regime when they met Tuesday in Singapore, state media reported, a claim that contrasts with the USA president's rhetoric that the economic strictures would remain.

There were worries, especially in Tokyo and Seoul, which have huge USA military presences, about Trump agreeing to halt US military exercises with South Korea, which the North has long claimed were invasion preparations.

The Kremlin said on Wednesday that a summit between the US President Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un showed President Putin was right to encourage direct dialogue as a way to reduce tensions.

Despite the confusion and disappointment among some, the summit managed to, for a time at least, reset a relationship that has always been characterized by bloodshed and threats.

President Donald Trump on Wednesday morning declared an end to the North Korean nuclear threat.

China won big at the summit after Trump made surprising pledges to suspend war games with South Korea and eventually pull USA troops from there. Trump's decision to meet Kim without that clear path to denuclearization removed the roadblock.

News of the decision to halt the drills stoked concern in Japan, with Defense Minister Itsunori Onodera calling joint exercises and the us military presence in South Korea "vital" to East Asian security.

The state media reports portray Kim as a peace-loving but pragmatic leader who intends to "take practical measures actively to carry out the issues discussed at the talks and the joint statement at an early date" and "take legal and institutional steps to guarantee" denuclearization, peace and stability of the Korean peninsula. "North Korea has great potential for the future!", he wrote.

Tuesday's summit in Singapore was front page news on Wednesday, with full-page spreads of photos of Mr Kim and Mr Trump and details about the meeting.

Lee continued: "The third thing is a leader in South Korea that also has his own economic interests in engaging with the North".

In 1985, North Korea signed the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), which was to be a landmark global treaty to "prevent the spread of nuclear weapons and weapons technology, to promote cooperation in the peaceful uses of nuclear energy and to further the goal of achieving nuclear disarmament and general and complete disarmament".

But as soon as Kim steps off the plane China provided him for the Singapore trip, Beijing will be mindful of maintaining its influence over a Pyongyang that may feel less isolated after Trump showered Kim with praises, called him a "very talented man", and made security concessions in return for very little. "The V matters", he told reporters. Both sides promised to push the process forward quickly, and Trump and Kim exchanged invitations to each other to visit their nations' capitals. When you're trying to negotiate a peace deal with North Korea, it doesn't make a lot of sense to be engaging in military exercises that are viewed as provocative. There are still few details about Trump's decision to suspend USA "war games" in South Korea, which could fuel discussion about a weakening of the alliance.

"Today, we had a historic meeting and chose to leave the past behind", Kim said, speaking through a translator. Beijing is also hoping to convince Seoul to remove a sophisticated US missile defence system that China sees as a threat to its security. And why wasn't the South Korean president invited?

"It is up to the US and South Korea to decide about their joint exercises".

While Trump has said his "maximum pressure" campaign is what led to the summit, KCNA suggested that Trump credited Kim for the detente.

"His country has to be de-nuked, and he understood that, he fully understood that", Trump said.
