India today welcomed the historic summit between US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, calling it a positive development.

South Korea said last month that the issue of USA troops stationed there was unrelated to any future peace treaty with North Korea and that American forces should stay even if such an agreement were signed. It did not include an agreement to take steps toward ending the technical state of warfare between the USA and North Korea.

Pompeo is scheduled to immediately fly to Seoul and Beijing after the summit to brief South Korean allies and Chinese officials on the discussions, reflecting the reality than any solutions in the region will need buy-in from those nations. "I think it's inappropriate to be having war games".

"We actually have a new deal with South Korea in terms of the trade deal but we have to talk to many countries about trading us fairly. -South Korea military drills, but 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.
