China wants UN Security Council to lift sanctions on North Korea

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said he expects North Korea to take the major steps toward nuclear disarmament during Donald Trump's first term, as the USA president tweeted that there's "no longer a Nuclear Threat from North Korea".

At a news conference before leaving the Singapore summit, Trump also speculated on the long-term possibility of withdrawing the 28,500 US troops in Korea if the initial agreement with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un leads to denuclearization and peace.

It marked the first time any leader of North Korea has set foot in South Korea, as the pair announced plans to denuclearize the Korean peninsula and hinted at a possible reunification. But "I've never agreed with 100 percent of what this president says off the cuff like that".

The reporter asked at a press conference in Canberra: 'Are you anxious about the pull-out of American troops from North Korea and possibly Japan as well?'

For weeks, Pompeo and other officials have insisted North Korea must agree to "complete, verifiable, irreversible denuclearization" before economic sanctions can be lifted.

"War games are very expensive", he said, raising the issue of their cost.

Pompeo, speaking to reporters in Seoul on Wednesday, sought to quell criticism that North Korea didn't make any major commitments at the summit in Singapore.

Mazarr said that the US pledge to suspend U.S.

"North Korea has committed to a complete denuclearisation".

The country was as surprised as anyone by President Donald Trump's sudden announcement in Singapore that the United States would be "stopping the war games" - the joint military exercises it regularly carries out with South Korea. "We just hope President Trump knows what he was getting into".

The North Korean leader agreed to work toward "complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula" in return for security guarantees from the United States as Trump wrapped up his historic summit which he described as "honest, direct and productive".

Japan has repeatedly called for the issue to be raised in discussions with Pyongyang, and Trump said at a press conference yesterday afternoon that he had discussed the issue with Kim.

Malcolm Turnbull today slapped down a muddled journalist who asked him if he was anxious about American troops pulling out from North Korea instead of South Korea. "I also think they're very expensive".

"What the North Korean denuclearization on the Korean peninsula means, USA can not use nuclear bomb in any case if war happens", said Hong.

But Mr Trump's announcement of an end to joint war games caught South Korea by surprise. "The secretary is in full alignment with the president to meet his goal, which is denuclearization of the peninsula", Pentagon chief spokeswoman Dana White said.
