While Mr Trump has confirmed Mr Kim has agreed to work toward complete denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula, it was only briefly referenced twice in the article.
Before taking office people were assuming that we were going to War with North Korea. "Only then will there be relief from the sanctions".
President Trump downplayed North Korean leader Kim Jong Un's regime's history of human rights abuse and killing in an interview with Fox News' Bret Baier that aired Wednesday night, and suggested he sensed a "chemistry" between himself and the dictator.
Uncertainty on the issue loomed especially large Tuesday morning in Washington, where long-time North Korea watchers are all too aware that Mr. Kim's father Kim Jong-il explicitly committed back in 2005 to "abandoning all nuclear weapons and existing nuclear programs", only to renege on the promise in the years that followed.
Trump also agreed to halt joint military exercises between the US and South Korea on the Korean Peninsula, though that decision seemed to surprise both Seoul and the Pentagon. "But I think what's most important was that the people of the world, including those in the United States, Japan and Koreans, have all been able to escape the threat of war, nuclear weapons and missiles".
In Pyongyang, North Korean state media heralded claims of a victorious meeting with the US president; photos of him standing side-by-side with Trump on the world stage were splashed across newspapers.

A pair of Senate Democrats introduced a bill Wednesday that would prevent President Donald Trump from unilaterally drawing down the American troop presence on the Korean peninsula - not necessarily because he's said he will, but because they don't want to rely on his word that he won't.
Of the world's eight known nuclear powers beyond North Korea, three - India, Pakistan and Israel - emerged outside a formal global arms control framework.
He added that it would be impossible to verify completely whether North Korea completely denuclearized.
"Let me assure you that "complete" encompasses verifiable in the minds of everyone concerned", Pompeo said.
Trump also is wrong in saying "nothing happened" in return. -South Korean drills was met with concern. He said that Trump "made it very clear" that the suspension would only last while "good faith negotiations" continued.
"What's really disconcerting is that Trump announced unilaterally to the leader of North Korea that the United States is going to stop military exercises with our allies, without first telling our allies or even the Pentagon", Michael Green, a senior vice president for Asia at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, told Yahoo News on Tuesday.
