China urges ‘full denuclearisation’ as Kim-Trump meet

China urges 'full denuclearization' as Kim, Trump meet Donald Trump says his saber-rattling brought Kim Jong-un to the bargaining table

North Korea regularly calls the military exercises provocative preparations for a northward invasion, and numerous scariest standoffs in recent years on the Korean Peninsula have happened when the drills were being staged.

US President Donald Trump speaks while North Korea's leader Kim Jong Un looks at the signed document that acknowledge the progress of the talks and pledge to keep momentum going, after their summit at the Capella Hotel on Sentosa island in Singapore.

At the end of the historic summit, Trump and Kim signed a joint statement to put in writing the commitment to a denuclearized and peaceful Korean Peninsula.

"I was shocked when he called the exercises 'provocative, ' a very unlikely word to be used by a USA president", the official said, speaking on condition of anonymity because it was a politically sensitive issue.

Purdue, who has lived in Singapore and China as a businessman before his political career, said it would "be bad to throw on there any concession except for economic development" in negotiating the denuclearization of North Korea. "The country will welcome reducing the military exercises, as it could ease the decades-long tension on the Korean peninsula". Under the circumstances that we are negotiating a very comprehensive, complete deal, I think it is very inappropriate to have war games.

The Pentagon was not immediately able to flesh out Trump's remarks about suspending drills, a move the USA military has long resisted. There are, on a steady state, about 28,000 USA troops in South Korea.

"I think Beijing actually gave a message to Kim Jong Un during their meeting at the beginning of last month in Dalian basically saying, 'look we will take care of you - you don't need relief from the USA because we'll give you that sanctions relief", he said. "He gave very broad language".

He did not hide his view, however, that the negotiations would be hard.

"This is not going to happen in a fortnight and it will not be linear".

"We need to be very clear this is not a negotiation".

He added that it's "totally premature" to discuss the United States withdrawing its nuclear umbrella from the Korea peninsula in exchange for the total denuclearization of North Korea. I think without the rhetoric, you know, other administrations, I don't want to get specific on that, but they had a policy of silence.
