Koreas holding military talks to reduce tensions on border

The two leaders shake hands as the summit begins

-South Korea-Japan trilateral meeting, but she reaffirmed that the U.S. North Korea is a real and present threat.

A potential conflict over North Korea had "worried the entire world and could have entailed grave consequences, including a major military conflict", Putin went on.

High-level meetings in June saw the two sides set a date and venue for the general-grade talks "to discuss alleviating military tensions between the two Koreas and issues with regards to holding the Defense Ministers' Meeting".

The Russian leader had a meeting with North Korean official Kim Yong Nam on Thursday, at which he handed over an invitation for Mr Kim to visit later in 2018.

Pompeo says Trump has been "incredibly clear" about the sequencing of the process.

Bob Corker, the Oklahoma Republican who is the committee's chairman, said he was pushing Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to testify before the committee soon to learn "what actually happened" behind the closed doors in Singapore.

Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang reiterated China's support for a political settlement, while also pointing to an eventual lifting of U.N. Security Council economic sanctions. In tweets, Trump said everyone "can now feel much safer than the day I took office" and people could "sleep well tonight!"

But Trump has repeatedly praised Kim since their newfound friendship blossomed on Tuesday.

Under such conditions, South Korea needs to flexibly change its military pressure in accordance with the Panmunjom Declaration, in which Moon and Kim agreed to build mutual trust after holding the third-ever inter-Korean summit on April 27 at the truce village of Panmunjom. "For the President of the United States to send that signal to a North Korean general struck many people as odd at best, and insulting at worst, to the tens of thousands of North Koreans who have struggled under Kim's dictatorship". Trump returned the salute.

The Chosun Ilbo quoted a diplomatic source as saying that "Kim promised Trump during their summit on Tuesday to dismantle this facility". But South Korea, Japan, and the USA have long maintained that the exercises are defensive in nature.

So Pompeo had some explaining to do as he traveled to Seoul to brief the allies on what transpired in Singapore.

In North Korea, the official KCNA news agency described the summit as an "epoch-making meeting" that would help foster "a radical switchover in the most hostile (North Korea)-US relations".

"The South Koreans didn't know about it". -South Korea war games as it is inappropriate to stage such "provocative" drills in the dialogue period. -South Korean military drills.

In their joint statement Kim agreed to the "complete denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula" - a stock phrase favoured by Pyongyang that stopped short of longstanding United States demands for North Korea to give up its atomic arsenal in a "verifiable" and "irreversible" way. He said he won't disclose specific timelines but that the administration is hopeful that "major, major disarmament" steps can occur before the end of Trump's first term.
