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

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

"There will be a need for many global inspectors: North Korea will have to get used to hundreds of inspectors visiting not just agreed sites, but going anywhere they like", he said.

Even as it is not easy to map the internal faultlines of Kim's regime, the United States did enough to get him to turn up in Singapore.

"I said when I first started, why do the bombers come from Guam?"

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is denying claims the that USA lacks the technical expertise to denuclearize North Korea. "South Korea joint military exercises".

The drills infuriate Pyongyang, which considers them a rehearsal for an invasion of the North.

Ending the drills "is in excess of all expert consensus, South Korean requests, and even a close reading of North Korean demands", said Adam Mount of the Federation of American Scientists.

Richard Haass, president of the Council on Foreign Relations, said it was "troubling" that Trump had agreed to suspend joint drills without making any reference to North Korea dialing back its conventional military threat.

The fact that Trump and Kim "can sit together and have equal talks has important and positive meaning, and is creating a new history", he said in the statement. "The symbols that were broadcast all over the world last night have lasting consequences".

"Kim said he was pleased to meet with President Trump and his team from the United States and praised President Trump's will and aspiration to overcome the hostile past between the two countries, and to find realistic solutions to problems through communication and cooperation", part of the story said. However, there were no specifics offered on future plans, which will be a work in progress for the Trump administration if a deal is to be reached. On May 24, North Korea began demolishing its Punggye-ri nuclear test site. "The key going forward will be North Korea's actions, not their promises, in taking concrete, transparent steps toward that goal".

Supreme Court decision allows states to purge voter rolls
The big news in voting rights this week was the Supreme Court decision on Monday that upheld Ohio's aggressive voter-purge system. If that person not respond and doesn't vote over the next four years, they are dropped from the registration list.

In the face of the North's constant protest, the allies' militaries have defended the exercises as purely defensive in nature.

Perdue and others said any negotiations should focus on economic efforts, not military operations. "We're not stopping training, we're stopping joint exercises for awhile". South Korea contributes, but not 100 per cent which is a subject that we have to talk to them about also. Bush took a tougher stance toward North Korea, and the 1994 nuclear deal collapsed because of suspicions that the North was running a secret uranium program.

"As negotiations now advance, there is only one acceptable final outcome: complete, verifiable, irreversible denuclearization", said Ryan, R-Wisc.

Speaking about the military exercises, Corker told Reuters: "I don't know if that's an agreement or an ad hoc statement that was made. We'll check it very strongly", he told reporters on Air Force One.

The next scheduled major exercise, known as Ulchi Freedom Guardian and involving tens of thousands of troops, would normally be held in August.

Trump's remarks contradicted decades of assertions by USA administrations that military exercises in South Korea are defensive and essential to ensuring that allied forces are ready at a moment's notice to fight the North.

The ROK President said Seoul will support Pyongyang along the path to peace, vowing to "spare no effort in cooperating" with concerned parties "to ensure that the agreement can be implemented in its entirety".

"In coordination with our (South Korean) partners, we will continue with our current military posture until we receive updated guidance from the Department of Defense and/or Indo-Pacific Command", Colonel Chad Carroll, spokesperson for USFK, said in a statement.

However, it was unclear exactly what kinds of exercises would be halted and when.
