  • Trump Seeks Recovery of US Military Remains in North Korea

Global markets were relatively subdued in their response to the historic negotiations between US President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un this week.

Chung Lee, who is owner of Kim's Korean Restaurant in Spokane, moved to the USA from South Korea more than 35 years ago.

It allows the United States to recover POW/MIA remains from the Korean War. But at his post-summit news conference, the U.S. president described them as "very provocative".

"And at the point that it's concluded they are not, the president's commitment to not have those joint exercises take place will no longer be in effect". While the president won general praise for talking to Kim - instead of tweeting at him - even some Republicans were grasping for concrete takeaways and sounding cautious. In our simulation, he's representing North Korea.

This year, the spring exercise was postponed so as not to overlap with the Winter Olympics in South Korea.

North Korea has long criticized the joint drills as rehearsals for invasion and used them to justify the building-up of its nuclear weapons program.

The drills went ahead in April instead. For China, that raises the uncomfortable spectre of American troops on China's doorstep, erasing North Korea's traditional role as a buffer.

He's expected to meet privately in the evening with Gen. Vincent Brooks, commander of U.S. Forces Korea.

While many support the close military co-operation with the U.S. as a key ally for the security it provides, critics say they are an unnecessary provocation and stand in the way of easing tensions with Pyongyang.

Joining Gov. Richardson to represent the North Korean side was Ambassador Joseph DeTrani - who, in real life, served as Special Envoy to North Korea for the six-party talks starting in 2003.

In August 2017, Pyongyang threatened missile strikes on Guam, the only USA territory easily in reach of North Korean missiles.

The destruction appears aimed at easing Washington's concerns about Pyongyang's intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) capable of targeting the US mainland.

-South Korea joint military exercises-which are next scheduled for August-provided that "good faith" dialogue continues with North Korea, and said that the North had promised to destroy a ballistic missile engine testing facility.

"The president has raised a whole range of other issues in his press conference but I think it is too early to say that anything like suspension for suspension has occurred".

"We will be stopping the war games, which will save us a tremendous amount of money", Mr Trump said, labelling the exercises "inappropriate" and "very provocative".

"We understand what the United States and its allies mean".

Trump, who returned to Washington early on Wednesday, hailed the meeting with Kim, the first between a sitting US president and a North Korean leader, as a success that had removed the North Korean nuclear threat.

In November 2017, after returning to Washington from a 12-day, five-nation trip to Asia, President Trump stood in the Diplomatic Reception Room of the White House and insisted that he and President Xi had agreed they "would not accept a so-called "freeze for freeze" agreement like those that have consistently failed in the past".

"I share president Trump's assessment of that when he thanked the leaders of Japan and South Korea and China for the solidarity they've shown".

There are no plans to suspend the annual exercises with Japan.
