Kim summit vindicates Cold War doctrine of deterrence

Who gained and who lost what from the Trump Kim summit

Colonel Rob Manning, another spokesman, said: "We are going to be aligned with the president", while noting that the readiness of USA forces would remain "paramount".

US Forces Korea (USFK), which comprises about 28,500 troops permanently based in South Korea, received no fresh guidance on upcoming joint training exercises, including so-called Ulchi Freedom Guardian scheduled for later this year.

Their first moments together were picked apart for any clues about how the political heavyweights would match up.

Only hours before the summit, Mattis told Pentagon reporters that, as far as he knew, the issue of USA troops in South Korea would not be part of any discussion in Singapore.

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 organization most directly affected: U.S. Forces Korea.

Outside analysts believe the North objects to the drills because it must spend precious resources on its own war games and troop movements.

South Korea said last month that the issue of USA troops stationed there was unrelated to any future peace treaty with North Korea and that American forces should stay even if such an agreement were signed.

Rep. Ed Royce of California, who is chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, applauded Trump for pursuing peace through diplomacy, but he also said Kim had "gained much" Tuesday, "including an apparent promise" from Trump to suspend military drills. Gardner then went on to say that Pence said "while this readiness training and exchanges will occur, war games will not". "But we'll be saving a tremendous amount of money".

"I'm very optimistic that we will have a successful outcome from our meetings tomorrow", he said.

North Korea first started operating a small reactor tailored for making weapons-grade plutonium in 1986.

Following the unprecedented meeting in Singapore, Trump stunned observers when he said continuing the exercises routinely held between the US and South Korea would be "inappropriate" while Washington fleshes out a comprehensive deal with Pyongyang.

USA 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.

There are also annual springtime drills.

And while denuking North Korea will certainly come, it will take time.

In a press briefing in Singapore Monday, Pompeo said the White House has met with more than 100 experts from various fields, who have advised the Trump administration on the best strategies to negotiate with North Korea.

"The core of the US-South Korea alliance is the US troops stationed in South Korea and the joint U.S".

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