Denuclearize first, talk sanctions after: What historic US-N

  • Trump-Kim summit vindicates Cold War doctrine of deterrence

CBS News' David Martin reports that Pentagon spokesperson Dana White said Defense Secretary James Mattis "was not surprised".

Trump's surprise, nearly offhand comments, made during a news conference after his summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, seemingly upended decades of the USA defense posture on the Korean Peninsula.

"3. Reaffirming the April 27, 2018 Panmunjom Declaration, the DPRK commits to work towards the complete denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula".

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.

China was not a direct party to the summit but Mr Kim met President Xi Jinping twice in the run-up, and even borrowed an Air China 747 to get to Singapore.

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

Declining tensions with North Korea and the lack of major war games is also likely to spark discussions about cutting United States troop levels in South Korea.

Trump seemingly downplayed the significance of the exercises during a news conference following his summit in Singapore with the North Korean leader, in which Kim broadly agreed to end his nuclear weapons programme without providing specifics on how he would do so. "The economy of South Korea didn't pass the North until the early '70s". The president said the drills cost the US a "tremendous amount of money", and that South Korea hasn't always chipped in enough.

It was shocking, he said, because these exercises are fundamental to our military relationship with South Korea.

But American military officials at the Pentagon or U.S. Forces-Korea say they have received no guidance on the cancellation of the exercises. I expect he has experts that know about the issues to give him good advice and I hope the president kind goes into it slowly.

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. This led to North Korean condemnation, and Trump briefly cancelling the summit.

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

Trump told reporters he thinks this time is different because his is a new administration.

From 1950 to 1953 the Korean War waged on.

Nam Sung-wook at Korea University said, "With the latest agreement, we can kiss goodbye to the prospect of North Korean denuclearization". I would like to be able to bring them back home. "Look forward to further comment and clarification from the president when he gets here".

Joint military drills between the United States and South Korea have long aggravated Kim's regime-the North Korean leader even threatened to withdraw from the Singapore summit following a two-week annual military exercise in May incorporating roughly 100 warplanes.

He also said he'd like to remove all 28,500 USA troops stationed in the South, though he made clear this was an option for future consideration, not a part of current negotiations.

"At the same time, there needs to be a peace mechanism for the peninsula, to resolve North Korea's reasonable security concerns", he added.

"Stopping the joint exercises has been a long-term goal for North Korea and China", two Asia analysts, Victor Cha and Sue Mi Terry, wrote in a summit assessment for the Center for Strategic and International Studies.
