Kim Jong Un commits to ‘complete denuclearization’ after meeting with Trump

Who gained and who lost what from the Trump Kim summit

Chief Pentagon Spokeswoman Dana White told Pentagon reporters that Defense Secretary Jim Mattis was aware of the decision before it was announced and was in "alignment" with the president.

His statement follows a report from the New York Times, which criticized the White House for lacking a scientific advisory team.

Several lawmakers expressed alarm Tuesday with President Donald Trump's plans to halt military exercises with US ally South Korea following his historic summit with North Korea's Kim Jong Un, with some of them arguing any deal has to be ratified by Congress.

"It is the case that we are prepared to make security assurances necessary for the North Koreans to engage in that denuclearization", stated Pompeo.

Apparently, the President just handed Kim Jong-un concessions in exchange for vague promises that do not approach a clear and comprehensive pathway to denuclearization and non-proliferation.

Although this was not the focus of the summit between the two leaders, it is one of the four key points agreed to by Kim and Trump.

The sanctions on North Korea will not be lifted until progress toward denuclearization is verified.

In fact MNSBC's Morning Joe co-host Joe Scarborough took to Twitter to express that he did have "many concerns" about the so-called "Shotgun Summit", but he also noted that he thought a handshake between the two leaders was "far preferable to them making war". After a shorter than usual spring exercise, the US and South Korea had aerial war games near the North Korean border, with U.S. nuclear-capable bombers.

Since the 1970s, the United States and South Korea have held a major summertime exercise called Ulchi Freedom Guardian that involves tens of thousands of troops. Number one, we save money.

Although the Pentagon said Defense Secretary Jim Mattis was consulted ahead of time, current and former US defense officials expressed concern at the possibility that the United States would unilaterally halt military exercises without an explicit concession from North Korea lowering the threat from Pyongyang.

Col. Jennifer Lovett, a spokeswoman at the US military command in South Korea, said the command "has received no updated guidance on execution or cessation of training exercises". "I knew things wouldn't be that easy", Yokota said, adding that she hopes Prime Minister Shinzo Abe will meet with Kim and discuss the abduction issue as soon as possible.

"Our combined exercises are defence-oriented and there is no reason for North Korea to view them as a provocation", Marine Lieutenant-Colonel Christopher Logan, a Pentagon spokesman, said in a statement in March. If President Trump can't take Kim to task for that, then no dictator need worry about American censure.

The Yomiuri ShimbunFamily members of 12 victims of North Korea's abductions of Japanese nationals, who have not been able to return to Japan, intently watched the U.S. "South Korea joint military exercises". -North Korea talks as a step away from the war path, independent foreign policy expert Derek Davidson concluded that "Tuesday's "agreement" was nearly entirely free of any substance".

"I must have had just countless calls and letters and tweets, anything you can do - they want the remains of their sons back", he said.

"As expected, the historic meeting between President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jung Un produced photo ops and statements of goodwill, but is only the first step in a long road of negotiations", said Chris Zaccarelli of Independent Advisor Alliance, a Charlotte-based firm. Seoul's presidential office said it was trying to parse Trump's comments. It wasn't a part of the agreement he signed with North Korea, and it seems he didn't even tell the military - or even the vice president - before he made the announcement.

From 1950 to 1953 the Korean War waged on.
