North Korea's Kim visit Beijing; South Korea, U.S. halt military drill

Trump defends summit with North Korea, says US ‘got so much’

Speaking about the recent talks between United States and North Korea she said, "We just embarked upon a very courageous journey of denuclearisation and lasting peace in the peninsula".

The US and South Korea will suspend Ulchi Freedom Guardian, the major joint military exercise that they hold every August, Seoul said on Tuesday.

But other administration officials cast the move as a way to advance diplomacy with Pyongyang following North Korea's decision earlier this year to unilaterally suspend nuclear and missile tests.

"Our stance is that the sanctions must remain in place until North Korea takes meaningful, substantive steps towards denuclearisation", Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha told reporters.

"The South and the USA plan to continue consultations over additional measures", it added.

About 28,500 USA troops are stationed in South Korea, a legacy of the Korean War, which ended in 1953 in an armistice that left the two Koreas technically still at war.

-North Korean summit was more advantageous to North Korea than the United States. "I'm hoping the Russian lawmakers will join that journey", Moon said in a special speech delivered at Russia's State Duma, the lower house of the Russian parliament. And while the announcement canceling the exercises came suddenly, Kang said, South Korea was also considering this option to keep diplomatic momentum moving forward following the U.S.

North Korean diplomats talking to South Korean officials in the demilitarized border zone between the two countries reportedly offered to remove their long-range artillery guns, which have been a dagger pointed at Seoul's throat for decades. "There will be a meeting at the Pentagon later this week with the secretary of Defense, secretary of State and the National Security Advisor on this issue".

"The South and the North will continue to form unified teams for other worldwide sporting events. while holding joint training to strengthen inter-Korea cooperation and exchanges", said the statement.

North Korea's Kim hails 'unity' with China in new visit
The move marked a clear departure from China's previous stance of keeping silent on Kim's visit until he had returned home. USA officials are looking for signs that North Korea intends to follow through with its stated desire to denuclearise.

"Consistent with President Trump's commitment and in concert with our Republic of Korea ally, the United States military has suspended all planning for this August's defensive "wargame" (Freedom Guardian)", White said in the statement.

The Pentagon did not go beyond suspending the next exercise on Monday, saying that it is still coordinating additional actions and no decisions have been made on future exercises.

The suspension of Ulchi-Freedom Guardian will not affect any Pacific exercises outside the Korean Peninsula, the Pentagon said, permitting the USA military to continue training with Japan and other partners in the region.

"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.

The U.S. has 6,800 nuclear warheads, 4,000 of which are stockpiled and 1,800 deployed, and 2,800 retired, according to a report from the Federation of American Scientists.

Several of the women said in May they were coerced into leaving, while South Korean officials said they were trying to verify their accounts.

On Monday, the South Korean defense minister said the issue is still being discussed.

BEIJING-China provided the impetus for the halt of U.S.

As recently as May the North Korean Red Cross organization urged South Korea to return the women "without delay".
