Mattis not surprised by Trump's call to end military exercises: Pentagon

Mattis not surprised by Trump's call to end military exercises: Pentagon

Veterans of Foreign Wars, a group that advocates on behalf of all veterans, had lobbied Trump ahead of the summit to address the POW/MIA (prisoner of war/missing in action) issue with Kim during their meeting.

"Let's just hope for the best", said Rodman.

When Cuomo asked why he chose North Korea, Rodman admitted he was "naive" when he first went over but said he "fell in love" with the country.

"It feels like there is a big change coming with this", she said.

"It's too early to trust North Korea", said Shin Hyun-song, 63. "It is wonderful. It is awesome, when I said those damn things, when I went back home, I got so many death threats", he said, wiping tears away.

Dennis was referring to his previous efforts to act as a mediator between Kim Jong-un and the Obama administration, which rebuffed him.

"I feel safer amid the recent progress towards peace with North Korea", said a man, 21, who just started his military service this year and was out on vacation, at Seoul Station.

In a statement, Harman said he "salutes" Trump for bringing the issue to the table, and thanked Kim.

He added: "I think what the "why" for Kim Jong-un is that he wants to draw out this process and see whether or not the Chinese call for the relaxation of sanctions is going to gain traction". Minister of State for External Affairs V K Singh was the first Indian minister to visit North Korea after a gap of nearly 20 years.

"Today is a great day for everybody", said Rodman, adding, "I'm so happy". "I look forward to further comment and clarification from the president when he gets here".

The fact that Trump and Kim "can sit together and have equal talks has important and positive meaning, and is creating a new history", he said in the statement. He brushed me off.

Mr Rodman arrived in Singapore wearing a T-shirt promoting PotCoin, which has sponsored his travel to North Korea in the past.

"Rather than using a public restroom, the leader of North Korea has a personal toilet that follows him around when he travels", former North Korean military guard Lee Yun-keol told The Washington Post.

Mr Trump said last week that Mr Rodman had not been invited to the summit. We need that to be taken care of.
