"Greatest achievement" of summit was trust-building between Kim, Trump: Seoul

Hayden served as director of the National Security Council during the administration of President George W. Bush and as Central Intelligence Agency chief under President Barack Obama.

As an analyst for CNN, Hayden is a frequent on-air critic of Trump, and the author of the book that is equally critical of the United States president: "The Assault on Intelligence: American National Security in an Age of Lies".

Trump has also expressed the hope that both China and South Korea will play a major part in developing North Korea's economy, something Kim is seeking.

Nan, a senior official at the South Korean presidential office, said he believed Pyongyang and Washington could "develop confidence in resolving any issues through follow-up measures".

Despite all this, Trump's support from his right-wing political base remains strong, and his followers are likely to trumpet the outcome of the North Korea summit as the president achieving something his predecessors could not. Drills called Team Spirit, one of the largest annual military maneuvers in the world at the time, were held from 1976 until 1993, when, after North Korea agreed to dismantle its existing nuclear facilities, the exercises were canceled and have not been held since.

"We've adhered to the position of considering [the halt] during the process of dialogue even in the past", he added, asking the outlets to refer to a previous statement from the Blue House. The senator added that because of Trump's comments referring to the end of the exercises, "that's why I said there needs to be some clarification". "We don't have high expectations, although we have high hopes", she said.

The hardware is familiar, but the addition of face unlock and a retooled front camera make it a strong contender in this category. On the front, the device sports a 16MP selfie camera with f/2.0 aperture, AI portrait mode, AI beauty mode and an LED flash.

Although Beijing was not officially involved in the landmark talks, China's influence over the reclusive North Korean regime had still been felt, analysts said, and the "symbolic" nature of the agreement shed light on its role in the process.

In order to verify North Korea's dismantling of its nuclear program, inspectors will have to dispatched to the state, which Trump stated he will have happen.

Moon however cautioned that this was "just a beginning and there may be many difficulties ahead". "History is a record of people who take action and rise to a challenge".

It appears follow-up talks to the North Korea-US summit will be essential, as the agreement reached on Tuesday on North Korea's denuclearization was made at a broad level without details.
