Trump Wants to Pull U.S. Troops out of S.Korea

While most of the agreements confirmed to have come out of the Trump-Kim summit were pretty straightforward, advancing on the already discussed denuclearization, the meeting also ended with an announcement that the United States will suspend all joint military exercises with South Korea.

Kim Jong un has agreed to work towards dumping his country's nuclear weapons in a document joint-signed with Donald Trump.

He pointed out that North Korean traders used to make up the bulk of his business and now, he's had to find other ways to survive.

The president did not explain how the death of an American while being held hostage in North Korea led to peace, however.

In the two weeks following that summit, home prices rose by more than 50%, according to a local real estate agent interviewed by NPR.

There was no immediate comment about the sanctions claim from the USA side.

The Security Council could consider loosening or lifting sanctions on North Korea "in accordance with the compliance of the (North Korean) side and the development of the situation", Geng said at a daily briefing in Beijing.

Tooth says North Korea's coal exports have nearly exclusively been to China due to the sanctions placed by most western nations.

Inclusion of interpreters in such high-profile summits is not something new but for a summit between a U.S. president and a North Korean leader, they assume utmost significance because the chances of misinterpretation and misunderstanding are too high.

A presidential spokesman, in a cautious response, said Seoul needed to understand "the exact meaning and intention" of Mr Trump's remarks. "We just hope President Trump knows what he was getting into".

The historic summit meeting between U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has Koreans in Spokane closely watching the outcome. "However, Pyongyang itself, just like all of us, like Russia, China and the global community in general, has always spoken of the denuclearization of the whole Korean Peninsula. This person is not a wise representative for the U.S".

Trump was also asked about whether North Korea's human rights record came up at the summit, and he told ABC News that the issue was discussed "briefly" and then "at length".

Kim has already visited China twice to meet Xi, ahead of his meeting with Trump, to ally apprehensions of striking a deal with Washington on the back of Beijing. During the Korean War, most of the missing Americans died in major battles, in aircraft crashes, or as prisoners of war.

During the press conference, Trump also said that North Korean leader Kim is destroying a key missile engine testing site, without specifying its location.

The United States and South Korea blacklisted him for supporting the North's weapons programs in 2010 and 2016, respectively.

Trump however seems to have caught allies off guard by saying he would stop U.S.
