Kim Jong Un goes for surprise nighttime walk ahead of summit
Jun 12 2018 by Johnny Bowman
President Trump committed to provide security guarantees to the DPRK, and Chairman Kim Jong Un reaffirmed his firm and unwavering commitment to complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.

Before Kim's departure, the president heaped praise on the young dictator, saying he learned from their meeting that he's "a very talented man" who "loves his country very much".
The North Korean leader said: "Many people in the world will think of this as a. form of fantasy. from a science fiction movie".
Mr Trump faced some tough questions, including one about Warmbier, the United States college student from OH who was arrested and imprisoned in North Korea for 17 months before being returned home in a coma. Top of the line, very good.

The Trump-Kim summit is the first between a sitting USA president and a North Korean leader.
Trump was joined by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, National Security Adviser John Bolton, and John Kelly, White House Chief of Staff, for the expanded talks, while Kim's team included former military intelligence chief Kim Yong Chol, foreign minister Ri Yong Ho and Ri Su Yong, vice chairman of the ruling Workers' Party.

Trump is hoping to make a legacy-defining deal that some say could earn him a Nobel Peace Prize.
Several reporters asked whether Mr Trump had raised the issue of human rights with Mr Kim, who runs a totalitarian regime with extreme censorship and forced-labour camps.

Sanctions will remain until North Korea completely and verifiably eliminates its weapons of mass destruction programs, he added.
The White House said the daylong summit would also include a working lunch and a larger meeting involving aides to both leaders.
Moon, the son of North Korean war refugees, took office a year ago promising to seek engagement with the North only to be stymied by rising tensions amid a steady drumbeat of North Korean missile tests and saber rattling by Pyongyang and Washington.
