China's Xi praises North Korea's Kim for Trump summit, promises support

  • Wind-down of 'irritating' war games US & South Korea suspend military drill planned for August

The drills, which have been staged in August every year, consist of the Ulchi defensive command post exercise staged by the South Korean government and the Freedom Guardian computerized command and control training by South Korean and US troops. "I can confirm that Putin and I have a common goal and a shared vision and we are seeking this together", the South Korean leader said, noting that Russian Federation has offered assistance here by supporting and implementing the UN Security Council's sanctions against North Korea. She cited Tuesday's announcement by South Korea and the United States on suspending their August joint military drills as an example.

"We are still coordinating additional actions".

A Pentagon statement confirmed the suspension and added that there would be a meeting between the secretaries of defense and state as well as Trump's national security adviser on the issue this week.

Athletes from the rival Koreas will march together under a single flag in the opening and closing ceremonies of the upcoming Asian Games in Indonesia, officials said Monday, in another tension-easing step since last week's summit between U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

The headline from the summit in Singapore earlier this month, in which Trump described the exercises as "provocative", should have been "U.S. weakens its 70-year alliance with South Korea", Zakaria says.

"President Putin and I share the common goal of establishing peace and achieving denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula".

No decision has yet been made whether the other large-scale joint exercise held in the spring would be suspended as well. North Korea made a show of inviting U.S., South Korean and British TV journalists to destruction of the site, but it's thought to have been largely torn apart by the last test that sent tremors through the region and killed an unknown number of people. The drills were held in April this year after a temporary delay to encourage North Korean participation in the South Korean Winter Olympics.

Comey 'insubordinate,' not biased in Clinton probe: watchdog
What you would have us believe is that somehow they waited until the president got elected, and then they would go after him . As FiveThirtyEight founder Nate Silver pointed out, this same dynamic affected the media coverage of Clinton's email scandal.

A trip by the North Korean leader to China to discuss his summit with Trump had been widely anticipated in diplomatic circles.

The Ulchi Freedom Guardian is a computer-simulated command post exercise, which the DPRK has denounced as a dress rehearsal for northward invasion.

The country has been particularly pleased by Trump's decision to suspend military drills with South Korea.

Kang also reiterated South Korea's commitment to the USA alliance and said there has been no discussion about reducing the US military presence in the country. Other rewards that North Korea wants are an easing of global sanctions, establishment of diplomatic ties with the United States, and a reduction of USA troops in South Korea.

"South Korea's "war games" with the United States are necessary defensive exercises undertaken in the shadow of an aggressive adversary". Also, what exactly might replace the armistice has been another point of doubt, and neither South Korean nor United States officials have confirmed what a new agreement would look like.
