While Trump and Kim concluded their summit in Singapore by signing a joint statement that promised "complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula", it did not specify what that process would entail.
Yu also said that China, which played a key role leading up to the talks, should also have a seat at the table as the United States and North Korea work with other nations including South Korea to hammer out the details of the plan, which includes a pledge by the U.S.to halt joint military drills with South Korea.
Trump's Twitter storyline, however, went like this: "Before taking office people were assuming that we were going to War with North Korea".
He said many in the media were hoping that the talks would "blow up" and that Kim Jong would "humiliate and embarrass Trump".
But he said that was no longer the case, and everyone can "sleep well tonight".
The U.S. needs to formulate a concrete, step-by-step roadmap to achieve denuclearization in Korea, Einhorn said.

The North suggested Wednesday that Trump had moved away from his demand for complete denuclearization before US sanctions on the long-isolated country are removed. "We trusted this big country, the United States, and we have been working on the North Korean human rights issue together until now, but now I am not sure if we can work together in the future", said Jung, who is also a human rights activist with a group called No Chain.
In his post-summit press conference, Trump made the surprise announcement that the USA would halt joint military exercises with its security ally Seoul something long sought by Pyongyang, which claims the drills are a rehearsal for invasion. Even if this meeting doesn't lead to any breakthroughs - and there's good reason to be skeptical of that - a future USA president may be glad that Trump threw away that old rule book and gave him or her a freer hand. But the North has long sought an end to the USA military presence in the South, where Washington has around 28,000 troops stationed to protect it from its neighbour. Trump phoned South Korean President Moon Jae-in after leaving Singapore to brief him on the discussions. Defence Secretary James Mattis' chief spokeswoman, Dana W. White, told reporters he was "in full alignment" with Trump.
At the summit, Trump emphasized what North Korea has to gain by giving up its nuclear weapons and rejoining the worldwide community - a subject he returned to on Twitter.
There are usually two sets of exercises every year, in spring and autumn, involving a massive number of troops and military hardware.
Most of all, I think they feel relief - relief they would not have felt, and certainly not to the same degree, if the Democrats hadn't drummed up hysteria about an impending war with North Korea.
North and South are also likely to renew their push towards a declaration that the 1950-53 Korean war is over, after fighting stopped in an armistice rather than a peace treaty. He said he planned to continue sharing the view with Washington and Seoul. It does not, for instance, include an agreement to take steps toward ending the technical state of warfare between the U.S. and North Korea.
But others said it's a great step forward for peace.
