Trump Kim summit: Pentagon remains 'ironclad' after war games cancelled

June 12, 2018 4:03 pm

The Pentagon has reassured allies of its “ironclad” security commitments, after President Donald Trump cancelled its Korean military exercises.

Mr Trump made the announcement after historic talks with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un in Singapore on Tuesday.

The cancellation is seen as a significant concession to North Korea.

Mr Kim, in his first reported comments since the talks, said it was “urgent” to halt “irritating and hostile military actions against each other”.

State media quoted Mr Kim saying that the two countries “should commit themselves to refraining from antagonising” each other “and take legal and institutional steps to guarantee it”.

It also said Mr Kim had invited Mr Trump to visit Pyongyang “at a convenient time” and Mr Trump had also invited Mr Kim to visit the US.

“The two top leaders gladly accepted each other’s invitation,” KCNA news agency added.
