North Korea: Trump has agreed to step-by-step denuclearization

Amid the growing mood for a thaw in relations between the two Koreas and between the USA and the North, the talk of a reduction in the USFK has persisted. I want to bring our soldiers back home", Trump said, adding "But that's not part of the equation right now.

Iran said Monday that North Korea should be wary of negotiating with Trump in light of his withdrawal from the landmark agreement, which the Obama administration had reached with Iran, Britain, France, Germany, China and Russian Federation.

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".

It appears follow-up talks to the North Korea-US summit will be essential, as the agreement reached on Tuesday on North Korea's denuclearization was made at a broad level without details. North Korea also insists that the USA troop presence in the South, as well as its nuclear "umbrella" over allies Seoul and Tokyo, are part of America's "hostile" policy toward the North. "The road ahead is a long one, but today there is hope that the president has put us on a path to lasting peace in the Korean peninsula". "I think the summit talk is very important because we are really covering a lot of people".

Donald Trump's dramatic meeting with North Korea's leader may have been choreographed to look like a Nixon-goes-to-China moment, but the summit appears to have failed to secure any concrete commitments by Pyongyang for dismantling its nuclear arsenal.

A meeting between the leaders of both South Korea and North Korea in April also boosted optimism and intrigue in the city. This could be part of USA efforts to ensure regime security for North Korea. "This is a win for North Korea, which seems to have yielded nothing".

"The USFK has received no updated guidance on execution or cessation of training exercises - to include this fall's scheduled Ulchi Freedom Guardian", it said in response to a question from Yonhap News Agency.

The reported agreement, if confirmed by the United States, could be considered as a concession by Trump because USA officials had called for the North to take swift disarmament measures before getting major outside concessions and benefits.

Pressed on whether he was surprised by the decision to halt the military drills, spokeswoman Dana White said: "There were no surprises".

Kim has earlier declared a moratorium on testing, saying North Korea has completely developed its nuclear arsenal.
