Trump wants to meet Kim Jong Un at the Peace House

Trump wants to meet Kim Jong Un at the Peace House

South Korea's stock market got a boost on Monday, lifted by shares of construction companies and train and steel manufacturers on hopes for joint economic projects.

Even before the end of the summit, a large number of South Korean news outlets released comments about how successful the summit was, including future tasks to follow the summit.

No peace treaty was ever signed following the 1950-53 conflict between the two neighbors.

Moon's approval rating after the summit rose to 70 percent, Realmeter said, its highest since mid-January. Lee had called to congratulate Moon on his efforts at peace, until the South Korean president deflected praise to Trump. "What we need is only peace", Moon told other South Korean officials, according to Reuters. Trump said on Twitter.

Friday's final declaration, however, leaves many questions unanswered, particularly what "denuclearization" means or how that will be achieved.

Trump is gearing up for his own meeting with Kim in the coming weeks, though the White House has yet to announce a time or place for it.

The summit was a result of the coinciding interests of the two leaders, that is, the North Korean leader feeling threatened with US economic sanctions and military pressure intensifying against North Korea's nuclear weapons and the South Korean President focusing on South Korea's leading role in issues related to the Korean Peninsula. China is the North's main ally. Bolton said that a recent absence of weapons and missile tests by North Korea "could be a very positive sign" or a sign that the programs have reached advanced stages and testing is no longer needed.

It would also save the North the potential embarrassment of having to borrow a plane. It will begin removing the speakers on Tuesday.

"We're very close to historic peace, but we also are very close to war", Republican Senator Lindsey Graham said on Fox News Sunday. "We are expecting the North's implementation".

Pyongyang also plans to shift its time zone 30 minutes earlier to align with South Korea.

Re-setting the standard time was a verbal promise by Kim, not an issue that was agreed upon at last week's summit.

The North in 2015 had set its clocks 30 minutes behind South Korea and Japan, saying the measure was aimed at rooting out the legacy of Tokyo's 1910-45 colonial rule of the Korean Peninsula.

North Korea is not the only country to have used a time zone to assert its national identity.

Peace House was the site of the historic meeting between the leaders of the two Koreas last week.

Mr Kim reacted to scepticism that the North would only be closing down the northernmost test tunnel at the site in Punggye-ri, which some analysts say became too unstable to conduct further underground detonations following the country's sixth and most powerful nuclear test in September.
