'This is huge:' North Korea agrees to return remains

Trump-Kim summit vindicates Cold War doctrine of deterrence

Mattis's chief spokeswoman, Dana W. White, told reporters that the secretary was "in full alignment" with Trump and had been consulted in advance on all aspects of the Singapore talks.

His statement follows a report from the New York Times, which criticized the White House for lacking a scientific advisory team.

South Korean President Moon Jae-in on Tuesday hailed the outcome of the summit between President Trump and the North's leader Kim Jong Un as a "historic event" that ended the last Cold War conflict.

Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW), NPR noted, sent a letter to President Donald Trump back in June this year, urging him to make the issue part of the president's negotiation with North Korea's supreme leader.

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.

If implemented, the end of military exercises could be one of the most concrete and controversial moves to arise from Trump's summit with Kim, who pledged to pursue denuclearization but offered no details. "However, the coordination with the South Korean military is absolutely critical". "The economy of South Korea didn't pass the North until the early '70s".

Contrary to Trump's claim that scrapping the exercises would save large amounts of money from the USA defense budget, Stoffer said the savings would be only marginal.

After a banner year of testing bombs and ballistic missiles, he said, Kim Jong Un saw it as "the ideal time to change the tune to a happier, romantic melody and get the USA to ease off, relax sanctions, so he can buy more time and money with which to further advance his missile and nuclear capabilities, while coming across as a reasonable, reform-minded leader".

"South Korea contributes [to the military exercises], but not 100 percent, which is a subject that we have to talk to them about", the president said.

ZTE has reached a deal to have USA sanctions lifted
The terms of the deal include a $1 billion penalty against ZTE and dictate that the company install a US chosen compliance team. This compromise would allow the company to once again use US -made components in their products-although at a large cost.

"At this current point, there is a need to discern the exact meaning and intent of President Trump's comments", Seoul's defence Ministry said, adding that there had been no discussions yet with Washington on modifying the drills set for August.

But Sue Mi Terry, senior fellow and Korea Chair at CSIS, said even if the USA did not consult with the South Koreans, she thought they would be fine with it.

"One of the key points that Trump and his advisers made was that the United States will not repeat the mistakes of previous deals", he said.

"Over the last two months the border is more open than it was when we first started", Trump told reporters in Singapore.

Experts at Boston-area universities Tuesday reacted both cautiously and skeptically to President Trump's meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, saying it hadn't produced much of substance and even that Kim had come away the victor.

So we got our hostages back, but they've blown up one of their sites, one of their testing sites, their primary testing site, in fact some people say their only testing site, they are getting rid of a missile, which isn't in the document, that was done afterwards, they're getting rid of a missile testing site - they're doing so much now.

Melissa Hanham of the US-based Center for Nonproliferation Studies said on Twitter that North Korea had "already promised to do this many times", adding the two sides "still don't agree on what "denuclearisation" means".

The KCNA report noted Kim's "proactive peace-loving measures" and the "will of the top leaders of the two countries to put an end to the extreme hostile relations" that date back to the Korean War almost 70 years ago. North Korea has either cheated on or disregarded the agreements in the past. -South Korea military drills - was characterized by state-run media as a major victory in hand for Kim.
