China reaffirmed commitment to N Korea sanctions - Pompeo

Speaking at a news conference in Seoul alongside South Korean Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-hwa and Japanese Foreign Minister Taro Kono, the US secretary of state said the Trump administration would not repeat the mistakes made by past presidents that rewarded Pyongyang for denuclearization promises.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has said that there will be no sanctions relief for North Korea until it has denuclearised in a way that is "complete, verifiable and irreversible". On Thursday, North Korean state media broadcasted a 42-minute documentary from the summit, including footage of Trump attempting to shake the officer's hand but saluting him instead.

The poll found that both President Trump, and Kim Jong Un came out of the meeting looking stronger.

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, one of the key architects of the North Korea-U.S. summit, . has been on a whirlwind tour of the region to explain the summit outcomes to regional powers.

The Trump administration has been adamant that US inspectors must be on the ground, alongside scientists from other countries, to ensure North Korea is following through on its pledge to denuclearize.

Shortly after arriving in Seoul to brief USA treaty allies Japan and South Korea, Mr Pompeo also cautioned that the U.S. would resume "war games" with close ally South Korea if the North stops negotiating in good faith. President Moon Jae-in, an avowed supporter of engagement with North Korea, called it "a truly historic feat" that had "moved us from the era of hostility towards the era of dialogue, of peace and prosperity".

Microsoft also said it would start a new studio of its own, called The Initiative , which will be based in Santa Monica. No other details were given, apart from Spencer saying it would be "Master Chief's greatest adventure yet".

Trump's administration has also been criticized for saying North Korea is no longer a nuclear threat, and that the country agreed to an intensive inspections program for their nuclear weapons, even though North Korea still has nuclear weapons and has not given any indication that they agreed to inspections. But for the rest of us who are watching and know the history of North Korea, we should be skeptical.

But Trump's move had always been suggested by China, and Beijing was quick to applaud its announcement on Wednesday.

He also had a sit down with Chinese President Xi Jinping before heading back to the U.S.

The authoritarian regime in North Korea has long sought an audience with a U.S. President.

According to a Reuters/Ipsos poll, over half of Americans approve of how Trump has handled North Korea, but only a quarter think the summit will lead to the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.
