South Korea dismantles propaganda loudspeakers at border

Presidential spokesman Kim Eui-kyeom told reporters on Wednesday that the president made such remarks with regard to his special adviser Moon Chung-in's comment that it will be hard to justify the presence of US troops after a peace treaty is signed. They are important to President Trump, for the world will better remember how he handles this complicated and important situation than it will remember what he has said about it.

Millions watched Moon's meeting with Kim last Friday, the first meeting between two leaders of North and South Korea in a decade.

A South Korea military officer said later Tuesday that North Korea had also begun taking down its propaganda loudspeakers earlier in the day. A meeting between Trump and Kim has been talked about, but no date has been confirmed.

For years, ever since the USA flew Syngman Rhee, who had been living in the United States for decades, back to Seoul and installed him as the first president of the newly created nation of South Korea, Washington has been used to calling the shots there.

On Monday, Moon shook off a suggestion that he receive the Nobel Peace Prize for reducing tensions with North Korea, saying Trump "can take the Nobel prize" as long as the Koreas receive peace in return. Japan, a regional player (and a USA ally) may not support a flexible approach to North Korea.

According to Cheong Wa Dae, Moon said the issue of USA troops stationed in South Korea should only be determined through consultations with Washington, and was not dependent upon whether there would be a peace treaty with North Korea.

At the historic declaration made at truce village Punmunjeom on April 27, the two leaders vowed to end the Korean War which is technically still on and strive towards "complete denuclearisation" of the Korean Peninsula. The internal situation in North Korea was turning from bad to worse - there was acute shortage of everything; and restrictions were laid on consumption of liquor and celebrations.

"The economy (South Korea) expanded by an above-trend 3.1 percent previous year, bolstered by supportive economic policies and financial conditions, and by the pick-up in global trade".

Australia announces record investment in Great Barrier Reef
She said the government needed to commit to a credible science-based plan to tackle climate change. In 2016, Labor also pledged $500 million of funding over five years towards the Reef if elected.

North Korea is unlikely to give up its nuclear power stations, and therefore could still supply material with which to carry out tests in the future, should the political climate change.

Kim and U.S. President Donald Trump are expected to hold the first-ever DPRK-U.S. summit in May or early June.

On Nov. 28, Kim fired a rocket that that was capable of reaching Edmond, Inhofe said.

In addition to this, on Friday, South Korean President Moon Jae-in met at the same location in Panmunjom.

"We'll see. But I thought it was very generous of Moon of South Koreato make that statement, and I appreciate it, but the main thing is to get it done".
