In the agreement signed by US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un at Tuesday's summit in Singapore, there was no mention of how irreversibly and verifiably Pyongyang will dismantle its nuclear weapons program.

The United States hopes to achieve "major disarmament" by North Korea within the next 2-1/2 years, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Wednesday, seeking to give assurances after a summit this week that Pyongyang will eventually give up its nuclear weapons.

While the U.S. leader was facing questions at home and among allies about whether he gave away too much in return for far too little at the summit, North Korean state media heralded claims of a victorious meeting with the USA president.

At a news conference in Singapore after almost five hours of talks there with Kim, Trump said he "knows for a fact" that North Korea is serious about denuclearization this time and that Kim "wants to do the right thing".

South Korea's Culture Ministry said on Thursday (Jun 14) that it is looking into potential opportunities for South Korean tourism to North Korea, amid a thaw on the divided peninsula, reported Yonhap news agency.

It also described the situation as "two countries fighting and pointing nuclear weapons at each other", suggesting that North Korea should be recognized as a nuclear power.

Kim vowed to work for denuclearization, and Trump promised security guarantees for the North at the Singapore summit.

Air Force One touched down at Joint Base Andrews early Wednesday morning, completing the president's marathon trip to Asia for talks with the North Korean leader.

Despite Trump's optimism following his summit with Kim, many remained skeptical that North Korea, infamous on the world stage for making empty promises, especially when it comes to its nuclear program, would follow through on its pledges from this week's meetings. Japan has recently offered to cover the initial costs of IAEA inspections if North Korea agrees to resume them.

North Korea's newspaper, Rodong Sinmun, featured a series of pictures of Trump and Kim Jong Un shaking hands and standing side by side on its front page Wednesday.

Trump contradicts U.S. military stance on Korea war games
His statement follows a report from the New York Times, which criticized the White House for lacking a scientific advisory team. Between 1950 and 1953, during the Korean War, 35,000 American soldiers died and 7,700 are still listed as missing in action.

The two leaders met in Singapore and had several meetings concerning denuclearization of North Korea and the future of the two nations.

He also announced an unexpected end to US-South Korea military drills.

"And Kim Jong Un I think is probably wanting to change because he's seen the difference between South Korea and North Korea", Burgardt says.

He says Seoul is still trying to figure out Mr Trump's exact meaning and intent.

"We would like to seek an understanding of this between Japan, the USA and South Korea", Japan's defence minister, Itsunori Onodera, said.
