Trump wants to stop provocative 'war games' with South Korea

13 June 2018

U.S. President Donald Trump said Tuesday that he will stop "provocative and expensive" war games with South Korea in a surprise reference to the joint military exercises Pyongyang has criticized as a rehearsal of invasion.

"I highly appreciate the fact that President Trump firmly touched upon what I told him recently about the abduction issue, which is very important to us, to Japan", Abe said.

But that's what state-run news outlets do, taking advantage of every shred of propaganda it can to prop up the hermit nation's bonafides, USA Today reports.

The North's official Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) quoted Kim as saying that if the United States were to take "genuine measures for building trust", the North, too, could "continue to take additional good-will measures ... commensurate with them".

Without any prior warning, Trump announced he will be suspending the annual U.S.

Pyongyang canceled pre-summit talks with Seoul last month, calling the "Max Thunder" military exercise "an intentional provocation running counter to the positive political development on the Korean Peninsula".

North Korea has condemned the drills as an unacceptable act of aggression, provocation and threat.

Pompeo also sought to counter concerns that North Korea and the USA came away from the talks with fundamentally different interpretations.

At the summit, Trump emphasized what North Korea has to gain by giving up its nuclear weapons and rejoining the global community - a subject he returned to on Twitter.

"Look, president Trump is a deal-maker", he said.

Mr Moon was given a personal account of the US-North Korea summit from US President Donald Trump himself in a 20-minute telephone conversation, held only hours after Mr Trump met North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore on Tuesday.

"Last year when you were interviewing me at that time, and I thought the President Trump would start the war, I wish he did it, and now, the war will not happen", said Hong.

The other thing that they have said, Balbina Hwang, is that Chairman Kim is inviting President Trump to come to North Korea, and he accepted the president's invitation to come to Washington.

President Donald Trump's announcement that the USA will stop military exercises with South Korea startled Tokyo and Seoul, unsettled U.S. lawmakers, and took at least some parts of the Pentagon by surprise.

Trump and Kim signed an agreement to work toward denuclearization, but it appears weaker than past deals that failed.

It will be tough to upstage the US President pulling an iPad and showing Kim Jong-un the cheesy trailer of a straight-to-video 1980s B-grade action movie - complete with a Sylvester Stallone cameo - casting the two leaders as heroes destined to save the world's 7 billion people. "In coordination with our ROK partners, we will continue with our current military posture until we receive updated guidance from the Department of Defense (DoD) and/or lndo-Pacific Command (INDOPACOM)", she said.

He says if the USA concludes they no longer are in good faith, the freeze "will no longer be in effect".

"We would like to seek an understanding of this between Japan, the US and South Korea", Japan's defence minister, Itsunori Onodera, said. -South Korean war games.
