The comments could fundamentally change the way the United States, whose alliance with Seoul was forged after a 1950 surprise attack by the North started the Korean War, operates in South Korea.

Foreign Minister Julie Bishop says she was "cautiously optimistic" about yesterday's historic summit. "Kim Jong Un should not receive a dime of relief until he fully and verifiably denuclearizes".

The summit meeting is a good start between the US and North Korea, she said. "I'd like to see peace with America and Korea".

House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) echoed the belief that "as negotiations now advance, there is only one acceptable final outcome: complete, verifiable, irreversible denuclearization". Trump did not mention human rights in his opening remarks at the news conference that followed the two leaders' meeting, giving only a vague answer to a reporter's question about whether his legitimization of Pyongyang betrayed North Korean human rights victims.

The US president also said the Islamic Republic was "a different country" as compared to several months ago due to his decision to withdraw from the 2015 accord. -South Korea military exercises, which he and North Korea both called provocative.

"The worldwide community must not take the pressure off without confirmation the regime actually committed and is following through with genuine denuclearisation", Senator Wong said in a statement. The agreement required Iran to curb its uranium enrichment in exchange for relief from global sanctions.

Mr Trump and Mr Kim also promised to work towards building "a lasting and stable peace" on the Korean peninsula, and to repatriate remains of prisoners of war and those missing in action during the Korean War.

Kim Jong-un has committed to denuclearising the Korean peninsula.

Although Trump was quick to declare success for the unprecedented summit with Kim Jong Un marked by handshakes and smiles, experts said a joint statement signed in Singapore seemed mostly to rehash old broken promises made by Pyongyang to successive USA administrations.

Mr Trump said he had formed a "special bond" with Mr Kim, and would "absolutely" invite him to Washington.

There were plenty of smiles for the pair during the day.

Although Beijing was not officially involved in the landmark talks, China's influence over the reclusive North Korean regime had still been felt, analysts said, and the "symbolic" nature of the agreement shed light on its role in the process.

Australia has imposed sanctions on North Korea - covering travel, goods and services, banking and scientific co-operation - since 2006 in response to the regime's weapons programs.
