Trump Announces Suspension of U.S.-South Korea 'War Games'

Trump Announces Suspension of U.S.-South Korea 'War Games'

Retired NBA star Dennis Rodman has revealed what he thinks about Kim Jong-un and Donald Trump meeting for historic peace talks in Singapore on Tuesday.

Trump told press yesterday that the US would "be stopping the war games", which he said would save the U.S.

"That was a very last-minute", Trump said at a news conference, adding, "the remains will be coming back". "She sent her best wishes and said that Donald Trump is really proud of you".

Thirty five thousand Americans died on the Korean peninsula between 1950 and 1953 and 7,700 are still listed as missing-in-action.

"Number one we save money - a lot".

But according to Green, Trump had not notified South Korea or Japan before announcing the decision, catching them by surprise.

U.S. Forces in Korea "has received no updated guidance on execution or cessation of training exercises", said USFK spokeswoman Lieutenant Colonel Jennifer Lovett, Reuters reported.

A joint exercise earlier this year involving more than 300,000 South Korean and US troops was delayed to accommodate the Winter Olympics and was ultimately abbreviated by two weeks compared to the previous year. Even during budget cuts under Trump's predecessor Barack Obama that eroded readiness elsewhere in the world, the Pentagon prioritized exercises on the Korean peninsula that included everything from air combat to infantry drills.

Pentagon leaders have largely stayed on the sidelines in the run up to the Singapore talks, but Defense Secretary James N. Mattis said Monday there would be no consideration given to a partial drawdown or full withdrawal of the 28,000 USA troops stationed on the Korean peninsula.

"We fully understand the peace talks were about denuclearization - we wanted this to be part of that as well", he said. Foal Eagle is created to simulate war scenarios and involves ground, air, naval and special operations forces.

The exercises allow US and South Korean forces to practice mobilizing soldiers in the event of conflict, and to run computer simulations to improve coordination between the two militaries.

In Singapore, Trump noted that the United States has "done exercises with South Korea for a long time", but said that it would be "inappropriate" to continue while working out details of the deal.

Mr Rodman was in Singapore for Tuesday's summit, but the White House had said he would play no official role. "We will provide additional information as it becomes available", Pentagon spokesman Lt. Col. Christopher Logan said Tuesday.

Currently, the United States has 28,500 personnel in South Korea.

Soon after Trump and Kim signed a "comprehensive" document promising to end seven decades of hostilities between the two countries, the External Affairs Ministry said India supports all efforts to bring about peace and stability in the Korean Peninsula through dialogue and diplomacy.

Bishop said the sanctions against North Korea remained in place and would not be removed until such time as North Korea had proven it has dismantled its nuclear weapons program.

It was signed by Trump and Kim shortly after they met privately and with their respective administrations, with the paperwork stipulating that Kim has 'reaffirmed his firm and unwavering commitment to complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula'.

"Honestly, I am more concerned about my situation of finding a job than what's happening with the North", said Kim Hee-min, 24.

Green said the Japanese - who are concerned about the USA reducing its presence in East Asia - "are going to put on a courageous face".

"My first question is whether our allies, the South Koreans, were consulted in advance of suspending these military exercises", Reiss told Reuters.
