They'll do it again: Kim and Trump invite each other to visit

Trump lavished praise on Kim Jong Un during a historic summit in Singapore while continuing trade-related attacks on Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, and some Koreans who now call Canada home say they're struck by how the president seems to be turning on an ally while failing to question the conduct of a dictator.

"President Donald J. Trump of the United States of America and Chairman Kim Jong Un of the State Affairs Commission of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea have committed to cooperate for the development of new US-DPRK relations and for the promotion of peace, prosperity, and the security of the Korean Peninsula and of the world", the statement said.

Trump said aides would begin additional talks soon and said he would potentially invite Kim to the White House and be open to a visit to Pyongyang "at the appropriate time". "The two top leaders gladly accepted each other's invitation", KCNA said in a report about the two leaders' meeting in Singapore on Tuesday.

Setting out the U.S. position before the summit, Pompeo stressed that the Trump administration would only accept complete denuclearisation of the North. It's going to start very quickly. "It's possible. We're dealing at a high level, a lot of things can change a lot of things are possible", Trump told him.

His focus on diplomacy, including earlier meetings with the leaders of China and South Korea, is a sharp contrast with his rapid-fire testing of long-range missiles and the fiery exchanges of threats and insults past year that created real fears of a war on the Korean Peninsula.

But ordinary North Koreans are not confident improvement in US-North Korea relations will last long, defectors have said. He said he would discuss it "at great length" at an upcoming news conference, and indicated it would be made available publicly.

"South Korea is a little confused".

The likelihood of Kim Jong Un launching a first strike against the US, thereby bringing on "fire and fury", was low. The US had sided with South Korea in the conflict. "But the President said he expected immediate action as a result of the talks".

Washington is eager to see if the North's pledges were "sincere", Pompeo said, adding: "The US has been fooled before".

"Anybody who thinks we're going to fix 50 years-plus of major challenges here in one meeting is not being realistic".
