  • Trump vows to 'stop the war games' after Singapore summit

President Donald Trump came out of his summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un with a startling a concession: The U.S. will stop participating in military exercises on the Korean peninsula, a major facet of the American alliance with South Korea. "We did sanctions and all of the things that you would do".

But Panetta, who previously worked for President Barack Obama, said there are a "huge number of issues" that will actually involve the denuclearization of North Korea, which owns an estimated 20 to 60 nuclear weapons with about 141 sites that can produce them.

"So I think the rhetoric, I hated to do it", he continued.

While the Singapore agreement calls for a "complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula", the term CVID is glaringly absent.

"I want to bring our soldiers back home", he said.

During his talk with Hannity, Trump said his inflammatory rhetoric helped spur this new meeting.

Only hours before the summit, Mattis told Pentagon reporters that, as far as he knew, the issue of United States troops in South Korea would not be part of any discussion in Singapore. In its statement on the Singapore summit provided to The Daily Beast, the Department of Defense sidestepped the question, claiming us "alliances remain ironclad, and ensure peace and stability in the region".

"In one, NK called the Chinese to tell them Trump agreed military exercises would cease". "Was he committing to end all military exercises or was he committing to end just the most provocative ones?"

Exercises with South Korea cover a range of eventualities, including drills with nuclear-capable bombers.

Pompeo added, President Trump is very prepared for his upcoming meeting with Kim Jong Un and is eager to achieve real progress. "Well I think without the rhetoric we wouldn't have been here".

Senator Cory Gardner (R-Colo.) on Tuesday claimed that Pence promised to continue conducting "readiness training and training exchanges", despite Trump's pledge to end military drills in the region.

"Everybody is interested in the summit right now", she said.

Trump speaks to Kim as the pair prepare to begin their closed-door talks.

U.S. officials and the North Korean state news agency struck a hopeful tone as the meeting approached, while negotiators from both countries met privately in the last hours to iron out agreements, such as over the definition of denuclearisation and the terms under which Pyongyang might agree to dismantle its nuclear arsenal.
