The historic summit meeting between U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has Koreans in Spokane closely watching the outcome.

South Korea's presidential office said Mr Pompeo will meet President Moon on Thursday morning to discuss President Trump's denuclearisation talks with Mr Kim. "We will be there together with North Korea along the way", he said.

In the two weeks following that summit, home prices rose by more than 50%, according to a local real estate agent interviewed by NPR.

North Korea and the USA appear to be warming up relations after spending most of 2017 on the brink of nuclear war.

Commentators worldwide were quick to point out that far from achieving a commitment to "complete, verifiable and irreversible" denuclearization that he had trumpeted ahead of the summit, Trump merely persuaded Kim to work "towards" denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula. There would be nothing to criticize him on during an election year other than we don't like what he says.

They hold joint military exercises every year that anger North Korea which has long demanded an end to the drills and frequently responds with volatile steps of its own, leading to a spike in tensions.

Mr Obama "just brushed me off" and "didn't even give me the time of day", he said.

"Kim Jong-un is desperate", said Hong.

Today, President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un signed a joint statement committing to the recovery and returning of remains of U.S. military personnel missing in action and presumed dead from the Korean War. "I thought they were very provocative".

But Kim says this is false.

Trump warmly touched Kim's arm during the handshake.

"At the same time, there needs to be a peace mechanism for the peninsula, to resolve North Korea's reasonable security concerns", he said. Trump said the negotiations he has initiated should help improve conditions in the isolated country, which successive US administrations have targeted for gross human rights violations. I knew things were gonna change.

Trump is now in Singapore for talks with his North Korean counterpart, which began with a handshake between the two men and then continued with a sit-down meeting.
