Dennis Rodman Cries from Joy over Donald Trump, North Korea Summit
13 June, 2018, 13:29
President Donald Trump's announcement Tuesday that he had agreed to cancel war games in Korea reportedly came as a shock to South Korea and USA military leaders.
"We will be there together with North Korea along the way", he said.
"I'm very troubled today".
Trump and Kim Jong Un concluded an extraordinary summit Tuesday with the signing of the document, which the U.S. president described as "pretty comprehensive".
Hours after Trump's declaration, the Pentagon on Tuesday afternoon insisted that US Defense Secretary Jim Mattis had not been blindsided by Trump. "He is a unique person since he has a relationship with both Kim Jong Un and with Donald Trump".
"Conversations have been robust, there were no surprises".
On Wednesday Japan's defence chief said the United States military's presence in South Korea and joint military exercises were "vital" for east Asian security. Even during budget cuts under Trump's predecessor Barack Obama that eroded readiness elsewhere in the world, the Pentagon prioritized exercises on the Korean peninsula that included everything from air combat to infantry drills.
Trump also seemed annoyed that USA bomber aircraft make six-plus hour flights from the Pacific island of Guam to the Korean peninsula as part of its exercise routine.
The U.S. Forces Korea (USFK) said later that it has received no updated guidance on the execution or cessation of training exercises, including the UFG slated for August.
The former USA basketball star, 57, said on Australian breakfast radio on Wednesday that he believes the outcome of the meeting "should work out pretty well".
After meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un on Monday, Trump announced the United States will be "stopping the war games" on the Korean peninsula, describing them as expensive and "provocative".
"We have right now 32,000 soldiers in South Korea, and I'd like to be able to bring them back home".
Although Rodman is friendly with Trump and Kim and wants peace between the two countries, he said he has another goal.
Mattis has repeatedly stressed that any reduction in troops would be a decision that only Washington and Seoul could address. "We just hope President Trump knows what he was getting into".
"Creating friction with a key ally with an issue like that may have been a mistake, frankly", he told AFP. "Was he committing to end all military exercises or was he committing to end just the most provocative ones?" I asked him, I said I had something to say from North Korea.
"I feel really great".
"Leaving dark days of war and conflict behind, we will write a new chapter of peace and cooperation".
Although Trump claimed credit on Tuesday evening for the breakthrough - saying "a different president" had put relations on a more productive course - Bishop said on Wednesday morning that the sanctions had been an important catalyst in drawing Kim to the table.
"That is a long time for these big massive planes to be flying to South Korea to practice and then drop bombs all over the place and then to go back to Guam, I know a lot about airplanes, it is very expensive".
China, North Korea's main ally, accounts for more than 90 percent of the isolated country's trade, and China's participation is widely seen as crucial for global sanctions to have any bite.
The Chinese company has been accused of violating USA sanctions by selling sensitive equipment to both North Korea and Iran. The motion was adopted late Monday night, only hours after the deal became public and less than a week after it was signed.
