Sanctions Remain Until North Korean Denuclearization

The United States, South Korea and Japan were making a public display of solidarity Thursday over the outcome of Trump's summit with North Korea's Kim Jong Un.

South Korean President Moon Jae-in has said he would carefully consider suspending the military exercises.

"We're going to get complete denuclearisation and only then are we going to lift sanctions", Mr Pompeo added.

The incident apparently took place in Singapore, during Trump's summit with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un.

Since the early 1990s, the reclusive Communist regime has made repeated pledges to get rid of its nuclear arsenal - usually in exchange for economic concessions - but has reneged on every one of them.

"To no one´s surprise, North Korea used our President for their propaganda campaign", Democratic Senator Chris Van Hollen said on Twitter. Large-scale exercises are done to ensure that evolving tactics, procedures and plans can be carried out smoothly and that US and South Korean forces are in sync.

US military officials waited Thursday for a better understanding of how the president's directive to cancel future military exercises will work. But during the May 26 inter-Korean summit, they fixed the date for Thursday.

Kim was "warmly welcomed" by crowds "wherever he appeared", according to the voiceover, as the footage cut to a scene of Kim strolling through the Gardens by the Bay accompanied by Singaporean Foreign Minister Vivian Balakrishnan, as crowds strained to take smartphone pictures.

Trump's critics quickly seized on the salute as proof of the president's hypocrisy, arguing he was dishonoring America by saluting a foreign officer while condemning football players kneeling during the national anthem.

He said he believed that the USA suspension would apply only to "major exercises" and that regular readiness and training exercises would continue.

"Above all, I have the honor to convey to you, with special respect, honest regards from Chairman of the State Council of the DPRK Comrade Kim Jong-un", he said.

The priority for Washington has always been the "complete, verifiable, and irreversible dismantlement" (CVID) of North Korea's nuclear weapons programme.

They held the talks at Tongilgak, a North Korea-controlled building at the village, in line with the April 27 inter-Korean summit declaration that calls for joint efforts to alleviate military tensions and "practically eliminate the danger of war".

Harris had pointed to that missile system as evidence of US commitment to South Korea when testifying before Congress in February, when he was still in command in the Pacific. If North Korea gave up its missiles, and the dismantling could be verified, "there would be no need for it".
