Trump says date, location locked in for NKorea summit

Donald Trump says date, venue set for North Korea summit, withdrawal of US troops from S Korea 'not on the table'

President Donald Trump says withdrawing USA troops from South Korea is "not on the table" as he prepares for a historic summit with North Korea's Kim Jong Un.

"We're having very substantive talks with North Korea", Trump said before he departed for Andrews Air Force Base.

The clocks in North Korea have been adjusted 30 minutes ahead and now correspond to South Korean time, the Korean Central News Agency reported on Friday.

The United States now has some 28,000 troops based in South Korea.

Moon Chung-in, special adviser to the South Korean president, argued Monday that it would be "difficult to justify" the America's military presence on the peninsula if a peace agreement is reached.

The White House announced that Mr Trump will host South Korean President Moon Jae-in at the White House on May 22, in talks aimed at demonstrating allied unity before the Trump-Kim summit. "The Department of Defense's mission in South Korea remains the same, and our force posture has not changed".

Meanwhile, Trump also disputed a published report that he had asked the Pentagon to present a plan for the withdrawal or reduction of USA forces stationed in South Korea, saying such a move was "not on the table". A meeting between Kim and Trump is in the works, and Trump has said details could be released within days.

"I think a lot of good things are going to be happening over the next short period of time", he said.

Three Americans held in a North Korean prison will be released today, Rudy Giuliani, a member of President Trump's legal team, said Thursday.

A full withdrawal of United States troops was unlikely, the officials said, according to the paper.

"Troops are not on the table", he said before a flight to Dallas, Texas, where he will address the National Rifle Association but he also said he would eventually like to bring them home.

The American President also said the prospect of withdrawing troops from South Korea was "not on the table".

USA and South Korean officials have said that although it's a long-term goal, Kim doesn't plan to demand a troop withdrawal as part of negotiations over demands that he give up his nuclear weapons. They "encourage us even more to work closely with the USA for the success of the U.S".
