Dem senators move to halt potential USA troop withdrawal from S. Korea

Trump says he will stop 'war games' with South Korea

A quick answer: Probably not.

North Korean state media broke form and featured photos of leader Kim Jong Un walking around Singapore and meeting with President Donald Trump in their latest editions.

"We're not engaged in any reduction of USA forces talks, and I think we all wait until after this settles and we go forward", Mattis said of the talks between Trump and Kim. Trump promised to provide security guarantees to the North and suspend joint military drills with the South as long as negotiations with the North continue in "good faith". And if any skeptics of the diplomatic campaign he launched with his neighbors early this year remain inside his regime back home, the summit went a long way toward sidelining them even further.

Aware that the eyes of the world were on a moment many people never expected to see, Kim said many of those watching would think it was a scene from a "science fiction movie". North Korea also previous year detonated a purported thermonuclear warhead and flight-tested three developmental ICBMs that demonstrated potential range to reach mainland American cities. The work of putting meat on the bare bones of the agreement will begin quickly, he said, and "once you start the process, it means it's pretty much over". "When Trump realized there wasn't going to be anything substantial in return, it was impossible for him to back out because he had already gone too far".

"Before taking office people were assuming that we were going to War with North Korea".

It does not, for instance, include an agreement to take steps toward ending the technical state of warfare between the U.S. and North Korea.

Most Western observers have said the deal includes no new commitments from North Korea nor details on how denuclearisation could be achieved or verified.

Two factors that pushed Trump to agree to meeting with Kim was the mid-term USA election scheduled for November and the presidential election two years down the road.

South Korean Minister of Defence, Itsunori Onodera, said: "We would like to seek an understanding of this between Japan, the US and South Korea".

A presidential spokesman, in a cautious response, said Seoul needed to understand "the exact meaning and intention" of Trump's remarks.

Just after its start, both men walked toward each other from opposite ends of a colonnade, pausing before a row of alternating USA and North Korean flags for a lengthy handshake as cameras flashed and video and photos were beamed around the world.

The move, if fulfilled, would appear to be effectively an implementation of the "freeze for freeze" proposal promoted by China, under which the North would stop nuclear and missile tests in exchange for a halt to the exercises.

Last year, about 50,000 South Korean and 17,500 US troops participated in Ulchi-Freedom Guardian, billed as the world's largest command-and-control exercise and aimed at defending against a North Korean attack.

Murphy, meanwhile, said in the statement that he's "freaked out that the president will order troops out of South Korea only for North Korea to, once again, break their word". The issue of North Korea's abysmal human rights record, which Trump said he and Kim touched on during their summit, is also left to be addressed in a more formal way.

Trump also praised himself for backing a woman who won a Republican primary Tuesday in SC, defeating a Trump critic.

Maintaining sound and stable development of ties between China and the United States is not only in the interests of the two sides, but also of the whole world, and the worldwide community looks forward to it, Geng said.

Ms Hanham also said the U.S. and North Korea "still don't agree on what "de-nuclearisation" means". "That's a huge call", said Mr Broinowski.

In a separate tweet Wednesday, Trump addressed the issue, saying that the US would "save a fortune" by not holding the "war games".
