Trump Seeks Recovery of US Military Remains in North Korea

North Korea said Wednesday that U.S. President Donald Trump had told leader Kim Jong Un that he meant to halt joint U.S.

The US president also said he wants to withdraw American troops stationed in South Korea, like he had promised during his election campaign.

But that's what state-run news outlets do, taking advantage of every shred of propaganda it can to prop up the hermit nation's bonafides, USA Today reports.

U.S. President Donald Trump gestures as he leaves a press conference at the Capella resort on Sentosa Island Tuesday, June 12, 2018 in Singapore.

Geng Shuang, the Chinese Foreign Ministry's spokesman, told reporters on Wednesday: "North Korea has stopped its nuclear tests, and the United States and South Korea are practising self-constraint on their military exercises". He says Trump "made very clear" that the condition for the freeze was that good-faith talks continue.

There is even the remote possibility that North Korea could flip allegiances, just as China did in 1972. "We will be there together with North Korea along the way".

"Look, president Trump is a deal-maker", he said.

South Korean President Moon Jae-in on Tuesday also released a statement on the DPRK-U.S. summit, describing the joint statement as "a historic event that has helped break down the last remaining Cold War legacy on earth".

Former Defense Secretary under President Barack Obama Leon Panetta says President Trump shouldn't give anything to North Korea until he sees what steps they are prepared to take to denuclearize.

Trump's tweet frames the U.S. suspending war games, seen as a massive win for both China and North Korea in the negotiations, as a thrifty move from the US.

China has repeatedly called for a "freeze-for-freeze" or "dual suspension" initiative, in North Korea suspends its nuclear program in exchange for the US and South Korea to suspend their joint military exercises in the region.

President Donald Trump has arrived back in Washington from his historic nuclear summit with North Korea's Kim Jong Un in Singapore.

"We would like to seek an understanding of this between Japan, the USA and South Korea", Onodera was quoted as saying.

'It was one meeting and we should never have expected that everything would be resolved in one meeting, ' she said, adding it could take months or years of further work.

"It will lead other dictators to think that however small a country they might run, they only need to focus on quickly building a nuclear weapons arsenal so that they can be an equal to the USA", he said.

It quoted Kim as saying during his talks with Trump that "in order to achieve peace and stability of the Korean Peninsula and realize its denuclearization, the two countries should commit themselves to refraining from antagonizing with each other ... and take legal and institutional steps to guarantee it".

About 29,000 United States soldiers are based in the South, under a security agreement reached after the war ended in 1953.
