Trump thinks Kim will get rid of nukes 'virtually immediately'

Leader of North Korea Kim Jong-un and US President Donald Trump

"In addition, the charter of a Chinese airplane may have an effect of publicizing China's active support and cooperation to the North Korean people ahead of summit talks with the U.S".

Almost 7,800 American troops remain unaccounted for from the 1950-53 war in the Korean Peninsula.

The most tangible outcome of Tuesday's summit between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un appeared to be a commitment to recover the remains of US military personnel missing in action and presumed dead from the Korean War. "We did sanctions and all of the things you would do, but without the rhetoric...we wouldn't have been here".

The Pentagon has said the exercises are essential to alliance-building and military readiness.

The U.S. had rejected such proposals in the past, but North Korea has declared an end to testing its nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles, and now Trump appears ready to end exercises while talks are ongoing.

President Trump said he believes that Kim Jong Un will begin dismantling North Korea's nuclear arsenal "virtually immediately" after the two leaders met in a historic summit in Singapore.

Reaffirming the 27 April Panmunjon Declaration, North Korea will commit to working towards complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula. "Plus, I think it's very provocative".

About 28,500 US 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.

Moon Seong Mook, a former South Korean military official, said Trump's comments on the drills confirmed what many in South Korea had feared all along - that North Korea would attempt to drive a wedge between Washington and Seoul and gain substantial concessions from an unconventional USA president who thinks much less of the traditional alliance than his predecessors. "We will be there together with North Korea along the way", Moon said in a statement. "There has been real concern that he would only look after USA interests, not those of our long-standing allies".

"I am concerned that the summit between Trump and Kim will prove to be a setback in the global efforts to denuclearize North Korea and also introduce instability in the alliance between Seoul and Washington". Between 1996 and 2005, joint U.S.

Associated Press writers Kim Tong-hyung in Seoul and Gillian Wong in Beijing contributed to this report.
