Document: US, N. Korea aim for ‘complete denuclearization of Korean Peninsula’

"We will stop the war games, which will save us a tremendous amount of money", Trump said.

"I think it's a characterization that the United States may come to regret if and when we chose to restart joint exercises with South Korea", Denmark said.

Amid the din of discussion about denuclearization and concessions, veterans groups are praising President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un for taking a step toward closure for the families of thousands of missing Korean War service members.

Tom Spoehr, the director of the conservative Heritage Foundation's Center for National Defense, said he wants to hear more about what Trump meant.

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

Beijing has key strategic interests when it comes to North Korea, and has long feared that a collapse of its isolated neighbour could push waves of refugees into northeastern China, or that nuclear war on the Korean peninsula could contaminate swathes of the country.

Rodman also said that prior to this summit, he received a phone call from the president. He called the regular training sessions between US and South Korean forces "very provocative" and costly. Trump was giving denuclearisation on the Korean peninsula "a red-hot go".

At the same time, they seemed less rosy about Washington and Seoul's future relationship with Pyongyang, due to a distrust of the North Korean regime and President Moon Jae-in's liberal administration.

Raptors assistant Nurse promoted to head coach
On Tuesday, reports surfaced announcing the Raptors had settled on assistant coach Nick Nurse as their next head man. Toronto Raptors assistant coach Nick Nurse gestures during a game against the Detroit Pistons on February 29, 2016.

The five-time NBA champion has traveled to North Korea on numerous occasions to hold basketball exhibitions, and he has struck up a friendship with Kim in the process. Foal Eagle is created to simulate war scenarios and involves ground, air, naval and special operations forces.

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.

A spokesperson for U.S. Forces Korea (USFK) on Tuesday denied receiving any instructions yet as to the official nature of Trump's announcement. Picture taken on April 9, 2017.

The talks are expected to continue later into a larger meeting with White House advisers, the White House said. In a separate statement, White said Mattis was "fully aligned" with Trump.

Colonel Rob Manning, another spokesman, said: "We are going to be aligned with the president", while noting that the readiness of United States forces would remain "paramount". "North Korea or South-North summit could take place when two former South Korea presidents are still behind bars", he added, showing support for former presidents Park Geun-hye and Lee Myung bak.

Trump went on to say that he doesn't think he could have been able to meet with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un without the death of Warmbier.

The United States had rejected such proposals in the past, but North Korea has unilaterally declared an end to testing its nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles, and now Trump appears ready to end exercises while talks are ongoing.

Commentators worldwide were quick to point out that far from achieving a commitment to "complete, verifiable and irreversible" denuclearization that he had trumpeted ahead of the summit, Trump merely persuaded Kim to work "towards" denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula. Rodman's trip was sponsored by PotCoin, a cryptocurrency company that gives marijuana businesses access to banking as an alternative to many financial institutions that will not do business with cannabis companies because marijuana is illegal under USA federal law. "In the meantime, it is essential to maintain economic sanctions and diplomatic pressure, and above all to continue strengthening our military capability to defend ourselves and our allies".
