    North Korean leader Kim Jong Un reaffirmed his commitment to "complete denuclearisation of Korean Peninsula", in a joint agreement signed with US President Donald Trump Tuesday.

    The text made no mention of US demands for "complete, verifiable and irreversible denuclearisation" -- jargon for scrapping weapons and committing to inspections -- but did restate a vaguer commitment, AFP saw in a photo of the document.

    Kim and Trump signed the 'historic' document after their Singapore meeting.

    The extraordinary summit -- unthinkable only months ago -- comes after the two nuclear-armed foes appeared on the verge of conflict late last year as they slung personal insults and Kim conducted nuclear and missile tests.

    It was the first-ever meeting between sitting leaders of the two countries and was closely watched around the world.

    "We´ll meet again," Trump said after a signing ceremony, standing with Kim on the verandah where they first met. "We will meet many times."

    Trump said he 'absolutely' would be willing to invite Kim -- whose regime has been criticised for widespread human rights abuses -- to the White House.

    Earlier, the pair shared warm words and a historic handshake as they sought to confront a nuclear stand-off and enmity stretching back decades.

    The two men shook hands for several seconds beneath the white-washed walls of an upscale hotel in neutral Singapore, Trump reaching out to touch the North Korean leader on his right shoulder.

    Trump says summit is 'very, very good', Kim calls it prelude to peace

    As they sat down for their tete-a-tete, the US leader -- who had said he would know "within the first minute" if a deal would be possible -- predicted a "terrific relationship" with Kim.

    In Seoul, South Korean President Moon Jae-in watched live on television, telling his ministers, he "could hardly sleep last night".

    After huddling for around 40 minutes, Trump and Kim were joined by senior advisors before breaking for lunch, where prawn cocktail, short-rib confit, soy-braised cod, and vanilla ice-cream were among the options.

    The imagery for the high-stakes meeting was undoubtedly positive and Kim Yong-hyun, professor at Dongguk University in Seoul said: "The atmosphere of the summit looks very good."

    "It will be hard for this meeting to agree on specific deals but it carries considerable significance as a starting point," he said.

    Chairman Kim appears to be a very big fan of Water Ice and other fine desserts.

    So do I now see Libya, Iraq or Syria in South East Asia?

    Kim or North Korea will be foolish to believe USA to be a credible partner. USA just walked away from Iran deal. It agreed to lifting sanctions on Libya in exchange of giving nuclear program. Look at where Libya is.

    Actually...Bullshit.

    There is NOTHING Kim can do now to prevent US from bombing NKR 'to hell'. The fact that the US is ready for a military solution is why Kim had to come to the negotiating table. China can spin the event any way she want, but the reality is that the US played China and everyone from Asia to Europe knows it. Currently, NKR's nuclear ballistic missile program is not matured enough to be an immediate threat to US. It is a THEORETICAL threat, but not an OPERATIONAL threat. Do you understand?

    A theoretical threat is exactly what the word 'theoretical' implies -- some time in the future. On the other hand, an operational threat is when we have to formulate actual responses down to the unit level, like the ICBM units where missileers are stationed in silos and practices their launch procedures on a regular basis.

    The fact that our current responses to a nuclear missile attack came from the Cold War and that we -- via Trump -- are making credible threat of a conventional preemptive military strike against NKR's nuclear program is what prompted Kim to final realize how weak NKR really is and how helpless is China in terms of alliances. We do not need to bomb NKR 'to hell'. The country is already there. We just need to pacify NKR and let it be a millstone around China's neck.

    NK situated next to both China and Russia finally capitulated to the US threat. This shows what kind of allies China and Russia are.

    Lols...

    If US have nukes why others don't?

    If Pakistan don't have nukes there might be two wars we have to fight with India...

    Nukes are deterrent...I believe and hope that Kim not proved stupid enough to denuclearised N.K....he may be just buying some time to test US....

    [​IMG] Maybe Trump cut him a deal. Instead of “Made in China” it will be “Made in North Korea”. That would solve a ton of problems...interesting.
