Moon Says Denuclearization of N.Korea Could Take Years

Although human rights was not included in the joint statement signed by Trump and Kim, the USA president said he raised the issue and he believed the North Korean leader wanted to "do the right thing". The sides signed a four-point declaration, which includes a commitment to establishing bilateral relations, joining efforts to build peace and the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.

In follow-up talks on the establishment of new relations, the US and North Korea will likely hold discussions on ending hostilities.

But instead, she said, the North Koreans left him in a awful place with no care to vegetate, and then acted "like we're doing the world a favor" and released him saying he had botulism - which USA doctors never confirmed.

"In coordination with our (South Korean) partners, we will continue with our current military posture until we receive updated guidance from the Department of Defense and/or Indo-Pacific Command", Colonel Chad Carroll, spokesperson for USFK, said in a statement.

Trump said during the post-summit news conference that the remains of Americans who died during the Korean War will also be brought home.
