Mattis not surprised by Trump halting South Korea drills: Pentagon

Happy with what he sees Happy with what he sees

President Trump's announcement that the US would be stopping "war games" exercises it conducts with South Korea stunned most senior military officials and appeared to cause some confusion among lawmakers like Sen.

Rodman, who is now in Singapore to witness the historic summit between Kim Jong Un and Donald Trump, immediately broke down in tears while describing his relationship with North Korea's leader and his experience of being not taken seriously by people back in the United States.

It is unclear at the time of this writing if Rodman will have any impact on the proceedings at the Singapore summit, though his passion for his mission can't be questioned, as he spoke through tears on CNN expressing his struggles and hopes to help assist negotiations between the United States and North Korea. "We also hope that the resolution of the Korean Peninsula issue will take into account and address our concerns about proliferation linkages extending to India's neighbourhood". We will be saving a tremendous amount of money.

Gardner, however, maintained, "I think what the vice president said today will continue to clarify what the president had talked about".

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.

Speaking about Kim Jong-un, Dennis Rodman said that North Korea's dictator is, in fact, an intelligent man who wants to be around the world, "loves to have a good time", and is "more like a big kid".

US Forces Korea (USFK), which comprises about 28,500 troops permanently based in South Korea, received no fresh guidance on upcoming joint training exercises, including so-called Ulchi Freedom Guardian scheduled for later this year. Seoul's presidential office said it was trying to parse Trump's comments. "However, the coordination with the South Korean military is absolutely critical". "I asked him [Obama] - I said I have something to say from North Korea". A favored US slogan in South Korea is "ready to fight tonight". But he also left open the possibility that they could continue, saying that he wanted to stop them "unless for some reason we're unable to go further".

His statement was quickly portrayed by critics as a major, unreciprocated concession to a country that only a year ago was threatening Seoul and Washington with nuclear war.

"Stopping the joint exercises has been a long-term goal for North Korea and China", two Asia analysts, Victor Cha and Sue Mi Terry, wrote in a summit assessment for the Center for Strategic and International Studies.

Rodman has struck up an unlikely friendship with the basketball-loving North Korean leader and made five trips to Pyongyang since Kim took power.

Such complimentary snacks were not for sale commercially, the company said, but rather a show of support for the press and related officials' hard work on the Trump-Kim summit.

"But still, a large number of South Koreans are maintaining a healthy skepticism toward North Korea".

"All I know is that Kim Jong-un is unreliable". I think without the rhetoric, you know, other administrations, I don't want to get specific on that, but they had a policy of silence. "We'll see what happens tomorrow". I never had no one to hear me. "From Day 1. I felt like I owe it to myself and the people of the world".

According to VFW, an agreement between the U.S. and North Korea spanning 1990 to 2005 saw the return of 229 sets of remains, with many more identified.

Outside analysts believe the North objects to the drills because it must spend precious resources on its own war games and troop movements.

A meeting between the leaders of both South Korea and North Korea in April also boosted optimism and intrigue in the city.
