North Korea celebrated Trump-Kim summit as great win for the country



North Korea has celebrated the Trump-Kim summit as a great win for the country, with state media reporting that the US intends to lift sanctions.

 
The two leaders met on Tuesday, signing a brief declaration on denuclearisation and reducing tensions.


President Donald Trump said afterwards that sanctions would remain in place for now, but would be lifted once "nukes are no longer a factor".


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


The move - long demanded by Pyongyang - has been seen as a major concession to North Korea and appeared to take US allies in the region by surprise.
The Pentagon has since sought to reassure its allies of its "ironclad" security commitments.
