Trump's vow to end military drills with Seoul stuns a region

Between 1996 and 2005, joint U.S.

If implemented, the plan could be one of the most concrete and controversial moves to come from Trump's summit with Kim, who pledged to pursue denuclearisation but offered no details. "We did sanctions and all of the things you would do, but without the rhetoric...we wouldn't have been here". About 5,300 were lost in North Korea.

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.

The effort will be the continuation of past missions that abruptly ended over a decade ago amid North Korea's increasing hostility and development of nuclear weapons.

It's debatable whether North Korea's commitment to recovering USA war remains could count as a major win for Washington when Pyongyang would be simply returning to what it had been doing for years.

Asked what happens next, Trump said: "I think he's gone back to get this done".

The statement was otherwise filled with vague aspirational vows for peace and the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.

"The key question is whether this concession by Mr. Trump was coordinated at all with the (South Korean) Government", Countryman said.

"The core of the U.S".

"The new element is that we agreed to stop our annual exercise cycle with our South Koreans allies", Hayden continued.

President Trump said he believes that Kim Jong Un will begin dismantling North Korea's nuclear arsenal "virtually immediately" after the two leaders met in a historic summit in Singapore.
