Kim, Trump commit to restart repatriating remains from North Korea

Bennie Garza | 13 June, 2018, 11:05

Just over 10 months ago, Fox News host Sean Hannity told his audience that North Korea was led by an evil regime that should not be appeased since it would break any agreement with the U.S. On Tuesday, following the Singapore meeting between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, Hannity praised Trump's efforts to negotiate with the dictator and said it exceeded White House officials' expectations.

The summit meeting is a good start between the USA and North Korea, she said.

"The United States and the DPRK commit to recovering POW/MIA remains, including the immediate repatriation of those already identified", says the statement released after Trump's summit with the North Korean leader. He also said he'd like to remove all 28,500 US troops stationed in the South, although he made clear this was an option for the future, not a part of current negotiations.

"The Presidential summit outcome is the first step along the path to the goal: complete, verifiable and irreversible denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula and a free and open Indo-Pacific", White said.

Amid the growing mood for reconciliation, the possibility has emerged that Seoul and Washington could consider scaling back the regular annual drills, including the summertime Ulchi Freedom Guardian (UFG). As Victor Cha, a former national security council staffer who was briefly Trump's choice to be USA ambassador to Seoul says, "If the bar is war or peace, then we are in a better place than we were six months ago, when there was a lot of talk about war". "But we'll be saving a tremendous amount of money".

RODMAN: It is fantastic, it is awesome, when I said those damn things, when I went back home, I got so many death threats. Trump said. "It's also lovely land", Trump continued.

In the wake of Trump's unexpected, nearly offhand comments to reporters, the Pentagon had nothing to say about the future of the war games.

Trump is scheduled for a news conference at 4pm local time.

"The Singapore summit statement is essentially aspirational: no definitions of denuclearization, no timelines, no details as to verification", Haass said on Twitter.

If Mattis was aware that Trump was going to announce a suspension of military exercises, he apparently did not share that information with the South Koreans or with the military organisation most directly affected: US Forces Korea.

The South Korean government also appeared caught off guard. "Look forward to further comment and clarification from the president when he gets here".

The exercises allow US and South Korean forces to practice mobilizing soldiers in the event of conflict, and to run computer simulations to improve coordination between the two militaries. Cory Gardner, R-Colo. - although that was immediately disputed by Pence's office. "I've never seen that side of North Korea". A favoured U.S. slogan in South Korea is "ready to fight tonight".

Early on Tuesday, just a few hours before his meeting with Kim, Trump wrote on Twitter that "meetings between staffs and representatives are going well and quickly".

His statement was quickly portrayed by critics as a major, unreciprocated concession to a country that only past year was threatening Seoul and Washington with nuclear war.

During the two-part interview, Hannity brought up the state of the people of North Korea and the starvation suffered as a result of the sanctions against the country.

Even some Republicans in Congress seemed uneasy.

"Seeing the two meet gives me hope that there will be no more conflict", said a man, 85, who was watching the live broadcast of the Trump-Kim summit at Seoul Station. In March, the North Korean leader also made a trip to Beijing. I knew it. I was the only one.

North Korea and the USA appear to be warming up relations after spending most of 2017 on the brink of nuclear war.

But US officials told AFP they were taken aback by the news, and Pentagon personnel spent the morning in meetings discussing what could amount to an epic shift in the US military's posture in South Korea.
