Iran to North Korea: Don’t Trust ‘Deal-Breaker-in-Chief’ Trump

Iran to North Korea: Don’t Trust ‘Deal-Breaker-in-Chief’ Trump

The historic summit meeting between U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has Koreans in Spokane closely watching the outcome.

North Korean Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un should know that the United States has a history of "quitting treaties and violating their commitments" before trusting Washington, Iran's Foreign Ministry said Monday.

In the wake of Trump's unexpected, nearly offhand comments to reporters, the Pentagon had nothing to say about the future of the war games.

"I think without the rhetoric we wouldn't have been here".

That deal reportedly includes a commitment to a "complete denuclearization" of the Korean peninsula aimed at establishing a "peace regime".

"We want to denuke the entire peninsula", Trump said.

It took months to bring North Korean leader Kim Jong-un to negotiate the start of denuclearization. "That's not part of the equation right now". Mattis' chief spokeswoman, Dana W. White, told reporters he was "in full alignment" with Trump and had been consulted in advance on all aspects of the Singapore talks.

Trump surprised observers when he told reporters after the unprecedented meeting in Singapore that continuing the exercises routinely held between the US and South Korean militaries would be "inappropriate" while the United States works to flesh out a comprehensive deal with North Korea. But, Koreans are anxious they could be affected by the summit discussion.

And what "exactly was the president committing to?" he added. "Was he committing to end all military exercises or was he committing to end just the most provocative ones?"

"But we believe it is necessary to come up with various measures to improve dialogue more smoothly", the Blue House said.

"The American military presence in South Korea wouldn't mean much if the militaries don't practice through joint drills", said Moon, now a senior analyst for the Seoul-based Korea Research Institute for National Strategy.

"So I think the rhetoric - I hated to do it". -South Korean military exercises "provocative".

A spokesman for Iran's Foreign Ministry said during a weekly briefing with reporters Monday that Iran views the Trump-Kim summit with "great pessimism", the Times of Israel reports.

Hannity, who sat down with Trump for an interview after the summit, even compared Tuesday's event to former President Ronald Reagan's meeting with Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev at the height of the Cold War.

"The Singapore summit statement is essentially aspirational: no definitions of denuclearisation, no timelines, no details as to verification", Haass said on Twitter.

A favoured USA slogan in South Korea is "ready to fight tonight".
