An American President known for defying standards has an apparent breakthrough with the reclusive head of a contentious adversary, setting up the latter to fully enter the world's stage. But Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un are not Richard Nixon and China's Mao Zedong. Not yet at least, because right now there's still a lot of uncertainty.

Soyoung Kim at the Reuters Singapore bureau.>> If you look at the details of the assigned agreements, there was really nothing that detailed steps about how North Korea would go on about dismantling its nuclear weapons. And for all the talk and the United States wanting to agree nothing but completely reversible, and their value of dismantling the nuclear program there was nothing to suggest that North Korea agreed to that.
