    Like that's going to happen although S.Korea acquiring North Korea's nukes will allow them reunite the peninsula and keep China at bay

    What I hoped to see, but kind of expected that I would not is wording about verification, inspections and timetables. Perhaps this will come in further negotiations.

    Never the less I am glad there is positive dialogue between the two.

    I just hope Bolton doesn't decide in two months that things are moving too slow.

    Work towards != commit

    As said above, this only means something if there are details and timetables.

    Will be impressive if they can pull off real denuclearization of NK.

    I'm more concerned about Trump having control over nukes than North Korea. That man is gravely unstable.

    This is what was signed in 1993 between the USA and the DPRK.

    The US didn't deliver any of the promises made to extract that agreement out of NK and then Bush added them to the axis of evil some time later, so they had no incentive to continue behaving. I wonder what deal they're being promised this go round. Kinda ironic if they do get a deal, Iran-style, from Trump who has spent all his campaign and presidency deriding the deal the Obama admin made with the Iranians lol.

    I don't think anyone should trust Kim as far as they could throw him.

    Mind you, I think much the same about Trump.

    Oh this "deal" is nothing like the Iran deal. The Iran deal had specific details on inspections, timelines and so on.

    This agreement is pretty much the same as the April 2018 deal and a step backwards from the 1993 agreement.

    I believe this deal is to allow a relaxation of sanctions against NK and allow humanitarian aid to flow in the country for a short time. This has been done before.

    Apparently US has agreed to cease all military exercises with SK. Also looking to remove troops from SK.

    Impressive win by NK.

    Well, it will certainly be fun to watch those that suffer from Trump Derangement Syndrome try and contort this into how this is a massive fail for Trump.

    This whole meeting is an impressive bit of propaganda for the rocket man. He's gonna look like a hero back home.
