as the next big story it's generating thousands of headlines with different angles from different perspectives separate the spin from the facts that's why i own guns. we've been listening post on al-jazeera. confident done all translators came young and is serious about abandoning his nuclear program but after their historic summit in singapore what will the north korean leader get in return and is this the beginning of a new era this is inside story. hello and welcome to the program. donald trump has become the first u.s.
president to meet and shake hands with a north korean leader after months of speculation of the summit was even going to happen the two men met on singapore's center style and they held a fourteen minute meeting followed by a signing of a joint statement in which they agreed to the denuclearization of the korean peninsula but it was a document vague and detail and lacking a timeframe we'll get our guests in a moment first adrian brown begins our coverage from singapore. no one was sure quite what to expect from the summit release a very talented. just the good news they seem to get on but as expected u.s. president donald trump and the north korean leader kim jong il signed a deal vague on details it says the united states and north korea will work towards denuclearization but missing the word verified and irreversible at
a news conference trump was pressed on that saying he now trusts the north korean leader it does take a long time to you know pull off completely nuclearization you takes a long time scientifically you have to wait certain periods of time and lot of things happen. but despite that once you start the process it means it's pretty much over can't use them that's the good news and that's going to start very very soon i believe it's going to start very soon we will do it as fast as it can mechanically and physically be done in the meantime sanctions will remain but trump said the regular exercises between the militaries of south korea and the u.s. would end but again no specifics or mention of a peace treaty either act one in this diplomatic drama that began almost five hours earlier with a handshake that may have changed the course of history. u.s. president donald trump said he had no within
a minute of meeting him if he'd get on with it so this was the moment he began sizing him up. the start perhaps of an improbable relationship in probable times two nuclear armed leaders one of whom a real estate developer and reality t.v. star the other an international pariah it's my honor. to plan their speaking through an interpreter kim said the way here had not been easy for. the old practices and prejudices worked against this but we are here and now. their day started at nine am local time in singapore prime time viewing in the united states. the two leaders were joined by their officials if the two sides stick to what they've agreed here will be many more meetings. in the garden all seemed amicable as the two leaders strolled in talk together and there was
something trump was keen for kim to see the inside of his official limousine known as the beast both leaders will feel they've got something out of this summit each gets the prestige of meeting the other kim gets to appear committed to denuclearize ation while trump may yet be credited as being the first u.s. president to bring peace to the korean peninsula the deal makes no mention either of north korea's harsh human rights history you know this is a fundamental freedom this is a principle of human existence and you know for donald trump to say that kim jong un is now a nice guy when he's got one hundred twenty thousand people in gulags in the mountains is just not on a few diplomatic encounters have been so eagerly anticipated the question now is whether all this will prove to be a little more than just a series of photo opportunities adrian brown al jazeera singapore.
let's bring in our guests in washington d.c. scott snyder senior fellow for korea studies and director of the program on the u.s. korea policy of the council on foreign relations in singapore time a junk research fellow for the east asian institute of the national university of singapore and joining us on skype from beijing. director of the china national association of international studies thank you all for joining us. scott isn't this an historic meeting by all stand. it was definitely an impressive and historic event this is the first time in seventy years us the north korean leader have match it was certainly well stage and i think a change in many respects in the international environment in east asia. first of
all u.s. president was willing to meet with a north korean leader but secondly i don't think that sort of meeting could have occurred without the facilitation and support of south korea and president in which has been who has been the most active supporter in trying to put these two together time who would have ever thought of the two men who were exchanging harsh words over the last few months would come together shake hands and agree on move forward who has a future many in this region feel that the summit taking things itself is a success and the president mungy in as well as miss kim your job the sister of mr kim jong un played a very important intermediary role in bringing this summit to hand we can see that president mourn reported constantly back to washington and share information with
tokyo in order to have a quite a nation between the u.s. and its allies and miss kim your job also passed messages from her brother to the western allies and especially to press a moon to make this summit possible so many consider that the summit taking place itself is a success and there were many takeaways during a president trumps a press conference where he mentioned that the secretary of state might pompei all will be taking over from here by sending a team to pyongyang.
