The president said North Korea "more brutally oppressed its people than any regime on earth".

Hayden served as director of the National Security Council during the administration of President George W. Bush and as Central Intelligence Agency chief under President Barack Obama.

While the document didn't outline any specific promises from Kim, the North Korean leader told reporters just before the signing: "We had a historic meeting and made a decision to leave the past behind".

"There is no military solution to the crisis with North Korea, so it is important that the Administration continues to pursue diplomacy". He added that he hoped to withdraw U.S. troops from South Korea at some point - further undermining the long alliance.

"Featuring President Donald Trump and Chairman Kim Jong Un....in a meeting to remake history".

In a session Tuesday with journalists in Singapore when he was asked about North Korea's human rights record and what Pyongyang could look like if it denuclearizes, Trump touted the economic benefits of building infrastructure in North Korea. -North Korea relations, but not a decisive one if North Korea does not follow through.




"Yesterday's photo op doesn't change the fact that a nuclear-armed North Korea is a threat to the security of the United States, our allies, and the world".

In an exclusive interview with ABC News's George Stephanopoulos and at a press briefing Trump announced that he was suspending military exercises conducted annually in South Korea by the USA military.

"Somebody said 15 years if you go rapidly, but when you're in a process of doing it, you're really dismantling".

Democrats said the end product fell far short of the goals set by Mr. Trump and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, which included the complete, verifiable and permanent end to the North's nuclear and missile programs.

When relations between the US and the DPRK thawed slightly between 1990 and 2005, a repatriation agreement allowed 229 sets of remains to come home to American families. "They've blown it up", Trump said.

More than 35,000 Americans were killed on the Korean peninsula during the war, with 7,700 of these U.S. troops still listed as missing in action - majority in North Korea.
