With US-NKorea summit over, US envoy turns attention to ally

Asked at a post-summit news conference how he could call the North Korean dictator "talented" since Kim was responsible for Warmbier's death, Trump responded: "I think without Otto this would not have happened".

The news agency said that Kim invited Trump to visit Pyongyang "at a convenient time" and that Trump also invited Kim to visit the US.

During a sendoff ceremony at Pyongyang International Airport, Kim boarded a Chinese plane provided for his personal use after greeting senior officials who came to bid him farewell, KCNA reported.

"Disconcerting to say the lease to see POTUS shaking hands with the thug Kim Jong Un and saying he's 'honored.' Will only be worth it if Mike Pompeo is right about what he sensed in his NK meetings", he said.

Tweeting from the presidential plane, which just landed in Hawaii to refuel on the trip back from Singapore, Trump wrote, "There is no limit to what NoKo can achieve when it gives up its nuclear weapons and embraces commerce & engagement w/ the world". "And he has that opportunity, and he won't have that opportunity again".

That doesn't seem to pin the North down to the concrete and unilateral measures Trump said he would demand going into the talks and it remains to be seen what significant changes could occur now that they seem to be moving toward more peaceful relations.

In a blockbusting press conference after the summit, Trump said the U.S. would halt military exercises with Seoul - something long sought by Pyongyang, which claims the drills are a rehearsal for invasion.

KCNA reported Mr Kim as saying of the sightseeing tour that "Singapore is clean and lovely, and every building is stylish as he heard of in the past, adding he is going to learn a lot from the good knowledge and experience of Singapore in various fields in the future".

North Korea's official media brought a large number of reporters and camera operators to Singapore for the Kim trip, and they had access to various locations that was denied to media from elsewhere in the world.

"President Trump committed to provide security guarantees to the DPRK, and Chairman Kim Jong Un reaffirmed his firm and unwavering commitment to complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula".

US college student Otto Warmbier did not die in vain days after he was released from North Korean custody in 2017, as his death helped initiate a process that led to Tuesday's historic summit with North Korea, US President Donald Trump said. Images of foreign countries, like the sprawling and well-lit Singapore skyline, are usually excluded from broadcasts in an attempt to hide outside information that may encourage citizens to defect.

The US would suspend "provocative" war games it holds with South Korea.

Mr Trump later said he would halt USA military exercises in South Korea, something widely seen as a concession. Trump made no mention of this during his press briefing.
