President Donald Trump falsely declared victory after his meeting with North Korea's leader and twisted history in celebrating his summit with Kim Jong Un. "Complete denuclearization certainly encompasses that idea very clearly", he said.
In an interview recorded in Singapore but broadcast on the US television channel, Fox News, late on Wednesday in the US, Trump said that a withdrawal of US troops from South Korea had not been discussed at the summit.
Beijing is Pyongyang's sole major ally and main trading partner, but it has backed the United Nations sanctions.
Trump was referring to a document he signed on Tuesday with North Korea leader Kim Jong Un, which included an agreement to return prisoner of war / missing in action remains and repatriate those already identified.
Later, Pompeo traveled to Beijing were he spoke to China's foreign minister Wang Yi.
The resolutions "have mechanisms for relief contained in them and we agreed that at the appropriate time that those would be considered", Pompeo said.
"We're going to get denuclearization", he said.
North Korea still has nuclear weapons.
He added that the North Korean leader has also "put forward a new strategy according to which our country will concentrate all its resources and efforts on economic construction".
Russian President Vladimir Putin on Thursday invited North Korean leader Kim Jong Un to visit Russia in September. He reaches out to shake the officer's hand, but the officer moves it away, as he salutes.
In an awkward-seeming moment, Trump then briefly salutes the general.
Trump explained he didn't need to record the specifics of his oral agreements with Kim "because he has "one of the great memories of all time" - except when it comes to Stormy Daniels, then it's all a blur", Kimmel said.
Mr Trump insisted during the press conference which followed the summit, that he meant to invite Chairman Kim to meet with him at the White House in Washington, D.C., according to reports from North Korea's Central News Agency the leader has since accepted the invitation.
Harris was a vocal supporter of joint miliary exercises when he was in uniform, calling them essential for USA readiness and an important signal to Pyongyang that the United States would defend both itself and its ally Seoul.
"Yeah, but so have a lot of other people done some really bad things", Trump said, dodging again.
In further explaining his reasons for suspending major exercises, Trump said they "cost a fortune", though even the Pentagon, which foots the bill for USA participation in all such manoeuvrs, has been unable to say what they cost.
In this July 6, 2016, file photo, South Korean and USA marines aim their machine guns during a joint military exercise between the two countries in Pohang, South Korea. "But neighboring countries will help the North Korean people to meet their basic needs".
That may be a lofty goal, given that the USA negotiating teams left their conversations with North Korean counterparts without bridging major differences over how or when denuclearization might actually happen.
