Trump surprised observers when he told reporters after the unprecedented meeting in Singapore that continuing the exercises routinely held between the US and South Korean militaries would be "inappropriate" while the United States works to flesh out a comprehensive deal with North Korea.

The summit, where Trump and Kim signed a joint statement agreeing to pursue the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, was held on the one-year anniversary of Warmbier's release.

"I really think that Otto is someone who did not die in vain". It was brutal. A lot of people started to focus on what was going on, including North Korea'.

"So far, the Korean peninsula issues are developing mostly in the direction China is hoping for - and after the Kim-Trump summit in Singapore, China's role will definitely be bigger".

Other sources of friction include Trump's withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal, which has drawn criticism internationally, his administration's feuding with China over tariffs and stumbling efforts to rewrite the North American Free Trade Agreement with Mexico and Canada.

Sputnik discussed the first ever summit between an incumbent U.S. president and a North Korean leader with Charles Armstrong, a historian and professor of Korean Studies at Columbia University.

The Korean Central News Agency and the Korean Central Television reported Monday that Kim departed from Pyongyang on Sunday morning via a Chinese chartered airplane to hold a summit with his USA counterpart in Singapore.

"I'm very optimistic that we will have a successful outcome from our meetings tomorrow", he said. Eight years later, rebel forces killed him in a violent display during uprisings supported by the US.

The North Korean approach, he added was: "Let's be friends (ie, change the relationship), and then we will change our behaviour". He went out of his way to be cordial during two summits with South Korean President Moon Jae-in in April and May.

Cindy and her husband Fred Warmbier have filed a wrongful death lawsuit against North Korea, saying its government tortured and killed their son.

But analysts said with the easing of tensions, China and South Korea were not likely to continue fully enforcing the tough measures needed to make sure North Korea makes good on its latest promises.

Mr Trump said he had formed a "special bond" with Mr Kim, and would "absolutely" invite him to Washington.

This was seen by some analysts as a big victory for China, since Beijing had sought a "dual suspension" - or "freeze for freeze" - by which the US and South Korea would freeze military exercises in exchange for the North suspending nuclear weapons testing.

He lionised Trump for achieving "a feat that no one else has ever delivered", adding Kim would also be remembered as "a leader who made a historic moment by taking the first bold step toward the world".
