And indeed, the emerging pundit consensus seems to be that the summit was long on principle and symbol, but short on detail.

In January, after Kim Jong Un said that he was willing to talk to South Korea, Trump tweeted that this was because he, the American president, had been "firm, strong and willing to commit our total 'might' against the North". The press coverage has been relentless.

Kim seemed markedly different from former North Korean leaders - his father Kim Jong Il and grandfather Kim Il Sung, people on the street in Seoul said on Monday.

Moon and Kim agreed in their summit to pursue complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula and work toward a peace treaty to formally end the 1950-53 Korean War. Kim further promised to permit journalists and experts to come witness the dismantling of North Korea's only known underground nuclear test site.

Asked a few days later if this was correct, Moon said it was. But none of these steps has cost any of the parties anything substantial. US President Donald Trump acknowledged that the recent major breakthrough would not have happened without the support of the Chinese leadership.

Kim found it was 'a painful wrench to see two clocks indicating Pyongyang and Seoul times hanging on a wall of the summit venue, ' according to North Korea's official news agency. Additionally, almost all of its aviation fuel comes from China, which has severely limited exports to the country.

One of the main reasons there has not yet been a resolution to the "North Korea problem" has been persistent, divergent dreams of reunification. He was very open about that.

Trump, meantime, may be on the cusp of an epochal geopolitical win.

In his conversation with Moon, Kim denied that he would be merely clearing out damaged goods, saying the site also has two new tunnels that are larger than previous testing facilities, Yoon said.

President Moon Jae-in made the comment in a cabinet meeting. The opulent award ceremony is held Dec. 10, the anniversary of the 1896 death of the Swedish industrialist who created the prizes. Some of Trump's more hawkish aides are doing their darnedest to say things that scotch the talks in advance. Not unimportantly, North Koreans call the same history "The Fatherland Liberation War". Tensions on the Korean peninsula escalated when Pyongyang declared itself a nuclear power in 2005, withdrew from the negotiations four years later, and began carrying out numerous nuclear and ballistic missile tests.

A euphoric mood also enveloped the presidential Blue House on Monday as Moon was greeted by cheers and a standing ovation by scores of aides and staff. From a South Korean national security standpoint, this raises eyebrows because the South Korean military is numerically inferior to the Korean People's Army and any force reduction might exponentially weaken the South to the North's advantage. This is what has happened on the Korean peninsula. They watered a symbolic tree together, and toasted champagne.

In the photos, Kim looked happy, even beaming. For the U.S. and South Korea, a reunified Korea would be a liberal, capitalist democracy.

Moon has the political capital to make these kinds of statements about Trump, however eyebrow-raising they may be to his domestic constituents. Trump has said he would prevent that, which raises the likelihood that the US would then attack North Korea, as Trump threatened to do last year. And there's no question that diplomacy has a large role to play in that process.

But looking internally for a moment, the most obvious change in the last six to twelve months is the completion of a nuclear missile-one that can strike the continental United States.
