South Korea alarmed after Trump says no more war games

"We have right now 32,000 soldiers in South Korea, and I'd like to be able to bring them back home".

"It feels like there is a big change coming with this", she said.

And that ties in with what North Korea, South Korea and Russian Federation had already discussed at the Far East summit in Vladivostok last September, as Asia Times reported; economic integration between Russian Federation and the two Koreas, including the crucial connectivity of a future Trans-Korean railway with the Trans-Siberian. Fiscal-minded South Koreans wonder if possible reunification could drain the South's treasury.

Mr Trump's comments suggests he had accepted President Kim's position that the drills were a hostile provocation.

A hawkish army commander, he has steered a series of inter-Korean military talks since the late 1980s.

The president's suspension of the exercises came as U.S. Forces-Korea, led by Army Gen. Vincent Brooks, is preparing for the annual Ulchi-Freedom Guardian exercises later this summer with the South Koreans. -South Korea alliance is the USA troops stationed in South Korea and the joint U.S.

Mattis often says his number one priority as Pentagon chief is to improve what he calls the "lethality" of the military, which includes making troops better equipped, trained and prepared for a full range of combat.

Away from the TV, the former "Rocket Man", now respectfully recast in Trump terminology as "Chairman Kim", did strike a formidable coup by completely erasing the dreaded acronym CVID - or "complete, verifiable, irreversible denuclearization" - from the final text of the Singapore joint statement.

During the 2016 presidential debate, Trump was accused of being a puppet of the Russian president.

Even some Republicans in Congress seemed uneasy about this.

Although Trump claimed credit on Tuesday evening for the breakthrough - saying "a different president" had put relations on a more productive course - Bishop said on Wednesday morning that the sanctions had been an important catalyst in drawing Kim to the table.

"Everybody is interested in the summit right now", she said. "I also think they're very expensive".

"It's going to be a long journey and there's a lot of work to be done yet, this is just the beginning of negotiation that could encompass a lot of very complex and hard issues between United States and North Korea that will include numerous major powers in that part of the world", said Dr Peter Brooks, Senior Fellow for National Security Affairs at the Heritage Foundation.

"The drills and the United States military stationed in South Korea play a vital role in East Asia's security", Japan's defence minister Itsunori Onodera said when asked about Trump's surprise announcement.

"The American military presence in South Korea wouldn't mean much if the militaries don't practice through joint drills", said Moon, now a senior analyst for the Seoul-based Korea Research Institute for National Strategy.

Klug reported from Singapore. "That is wrong. This process with North Korea is wrong".
