Trump vows to maintain ‘maximum pressure’ on North Korea

Although the president’s rhetoric regarding Kim Jong-un has mellowed, the US still says it wants to see steps toward denuclearisation before any talks between the two leaders.

North Korea state media say Friday’s summit with South Korea paves the way for a new era of peace and prosperity.

But US President Donald Trump is vowing to maintain maximum pressure on Pyongyang until it gives up its nuclear weapons.

His comments follow a historic declaration of peace from the North and South Korean leaders on Friday.
