North Korea leader Kim Jong Un and US President Donald Trump walk with the documents they just signed during their meeting.

Pompeo held firm to Trump's position that sanctions will remain in place until North Korea denuclearizes - and said they would even increase if diplomatic discussions did not progress positively.

Stephanopoulos snared the first TV-news interview between President Trump and an outlet other than Fox News since NBC News' Lester Holt sat down with the President in May of previous year.

He gave the North Koreans their own copy.

Trump said the USA will be monitoring the situation in North Korea to be sure that Kim is committed to dismantling his country's nuclear program.

He cited American college student Otto Warmbier, who was arrested by North Korean authorities in 2016 and died a year ago after being repatriated to the United States with severe brain damage.

President Trump and Chairman Kim Jong Un conducted a comprehensive, in-depth, and honest exchange of opinions on the issues related to the establishment of new US-DPRK relations and the building of a lasting and robust peace regime on the Korean Peninsula.

Mr Trump said scrapping them will save a "tremendous amount of money", but he added that they could be reinstated if co-operation from the North declines. Trump said there's "not much [the president] can do right now" about the prisons but he hopes Kim will address it "at a certain point".

Trump said he would "absolutely" invite Kim to visit the White House and is open to visiting Pyongyang as well. Hannity talks to the President off-camera regularly and Trump makes regular appearances on Fox News programs like "Fox & Friends" and "Justice with Judge Jeanine".

But others were sharply critical, claiming it appeared Mr. Trump offered the freeze in joint military drills without first securing full buy-in from South Korea.

The Associated Press reports Trump was originally scheduled to depart early Wednesday morning, however he will now leave Tuesday night after a day of meetings with Kim and other leaders of North Korea.

But in the past, Mr Trump has been far more critical of Mr Kim's human rights record, claiming the dictator is leading one of the most brutal regimes in the world.

More broadly, Mr. Yun said he was "quite surprised" at the lack of a more specific commitment on denuclearization from the North Korean side.

At the heart of negotiations was the "complete, verifiable and irreversible denuclearization" of the Korean peninsula in exchange for "security guarantees" for the North's mercurial leader, Kim Jong Un. Trump warmly touched Kim's arm during the handshake. Trump has dangled the prospect of economic investment in the North as a sweetener for giving up its nuclear weapons.

"Think of it from the real estate prospective".

In the run-up to the meeting, Trump had predicted the two men might strike a nuclear deal or forge a formal end to the Korean War in the course of a single meeting or over several days. "But the President said he expected immediate action as a result of the talks".
