Trump contradicts United States military stance on Korea war games

Mattis' chief spokeswoman, Dana W. White, told reporters he was "in full alignment" with Trump and had been consulted in advance on all aspects of the Singapore talks.

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

US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un met at the Capella Hotel on Sentosa Island in Singapore on Tuesday.

China suggested Tuesday that the U.N. Security Council consider suspending or lifting sanctions against North Korea if the country is in compliance with U.N. resolutions and making progress in diplomatic negotiations. Then they faced the cameras, paused for a long moment, and walked off, leaving the stage empty except for its backdrop: a line of North Korean and American flags arranged side by side.

Heading into Tuesday's summit, the big competing items on the table came down to what by now are popular acronyms, with the USA seeking the denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula, or CVID (complete, verifiable, irreversible denuclearisation), and the North Korean leadership rejecting unilateral nuclear disarmament while seeking its survival, or CVIG (complete, verifiable, irreversible guarantee of North Korea's security).

Issues to be determined included whether it is a temporary or permanent suspension, the level of exercises impacted - all or only major ones - the impact on allies, and whether there are any conditions North Korea must meet before exercises are called off.

At the end of the historic summit, Trump and Kim signed a joint statement to put in writing the commitment to a denuclearized and peaceful Korean Peninsula.

Trump said the so-called "military games" would restart if the Kim regime begins acting in bad faith.

Speaking about the military exercises, Corker told Reuters: "I don't know if that's an agreement or an ad hoc statement that was made".

President Donald Trump's claim that he wants to end the "war games" that the US carries out with South Korea is highly suspicious.

"I was not entirely optimistic about the summit because it nearly got canceled once", said Yoon Yong-jin, 20, a university student.

I just think that we are now we are going to start the process of denuclearization of North Korea, and I believe that he's going back and will start it virtually immediately, and he's already indicated that and you look at what he's done.

The U.S. -South Korean exercise calendar hits a high point every year with the Foal Eagle and Max Thunder drills, which both wrapped up last month. "I'd like to see peace with America and Korea".
