Discussion does not mean withdrawal. US readiness to “discuss” troop withdrawal from South Korea

52
The administration of Donald Trump is ready to discuss the issue of the withdrawal of American troops from the Korean Peninsula, reports RIA News Statement by US Secretary of Defense James Mattis.




This is part of the issues that we will discuss in the course of negotiations with our allies in the first place and, of course, with North Korea,
clarified the head of the Pentagon.

At the same time, he noted that now “we should not try to offer preconditions or speculate on how this should happen.”

Recall that on Friday the leaders of South Korea and the DPRK signed a declaration concerning the denuclearization of the peninsula and other key issues of establishing good-neighborly relations in the region.

Also, the leaders of the North and the South agreed to make efforts to organize tripartite negotiations with the United States, as well as quadrilateral talks with the United States and China.

The meeting of the leadership of Kazakhstan and North Korea was held on the eve of the expected negotiations between Kim Jong-un and Donald Trump, which can be held in late May.

          Hello, Sasha! A friend of mine, with a married mistress, argued before swearing about the strength of family ties and the requirements for wives and husbands. It was fun and informative, at least for the record. yes And as for the Yankees, I think without Yun’s refusal from nuclear weapons, they won’t even take the dogs out of their own base! negative

            Jury hi I apologize for getting into the conversation. But Trump said (although I do not consider him responsible for what was said) that without the DPRK's refusal from nuclear weapons, the dialogue will not take place? Many questions arise for both Eun and Trump (the latter will remain unanswered stopudovo).

              Hello paul hi I think Eun plays poker well, he studied tea in Switzerland! He knows how to bluff cool, but as it turned out, he also knows how to fold unnecessary cards, especially if the trump plays only in the flip du.rachka. Now, Eun has a period of accumulating points for peaceful initiatives, and it’s right, after accumulating them, the Yankees will be insolently bullied as before, it will be much more difficult. We look, we take an example for certain positions! hi

    It is with great difficulty that the stripes withdraw their troops from the Korean Peninsula. All the same, they will find one hundred reasons necessary to stay in South Korea, because China is strengthening every year, and they do not need a united strong Korea.

    It is alarming that the participation of Russia is not provided, although this is under our side.

    If you are even a little versed in US domestic politics, you will immediately realize that what is happening is not farce but quite real. Trump works out as much as possible and all this for the internal electorate. Now Trump wants to earn the Nobel Peace Prize as Obama. The main foreign policy task is to resolve the problems with the DPRK.

    And when you say “Trump got scared” or “And what about Trump,” then you miss the fact that the current US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has already met Kim, while Trump was cursing on Twitter. It was all a show, and negotiations were already going on behind the scenes.

    In general, the logic of some people who have South Korea as the “US servant” but who still claimed that Trump and the USA had nothing to do with it and Koreans outwitted everyone is surprising laughing

      can Americans listen to the protests in Japan and from there withdraw troops and transfer bases to civilians !?

    Everyone is smiling sweetly at each other, talking about the world and the historical moment in the relationship, only the fingers on the start buttons, the triggers, the hands on knives are the theater of the absurd. who is more a peacekeeper, and who is a liar.
    Kim specifically decided to show the USA and the south as liars, so that later they could unite the Koreans under the Juche idea and drive the imperialists off the peninsula.

    America does not need to withdraw its troops from Korea. They will take away nuclear toys from pukhlik, give money, lift sanctions, plus investments from the South Caucasus and that’s all. The path to unification is open, America maintains its strategic presence, puffed chocolate, people well-fed and happy. Only China (the Americans will solve the issue with China) and we (only Iran and dilapidated Syria are left with us).

    In principle, they can withdraw. For them, this is not strategically critical. They will withdraw partially to Japan, partially to their East Pacific bases, such as Guam. With modern weapons systems, consider that they did not deduce at all.

    Once the Ammerzans had already fallen from Vietnam, not because the Vietnamese had defeated them, but because the whole war led nowhere. All her hopelessness went through stripy to admit hearsay! It’s more difficult now with Korea — they don’t fight, but Eun now has a nuclear bomb, and he won’t be able to defeat him in the usual way! And what is the point of finding the Ammerza WB in South Korea then? The swing of mutual scarecrows and negotiations can now continue indefinitely, but it is unlikely that anyone will be able to achieve any concessions from Eun. Not for that a vigorous shield was created. Snapped striped Korea!

    I remember the agreement with Iran, too, and now they are trying to win back. So what can put the Americans to take their words back? Indeed, on fear of Korea and nuclear weapons, the entire foreign policy of the United States and not only politics is built, they shoved 10 billion military orders to Korea and Japan. And then suddenly peace comes, and never will be.
    It’s not for the Americans to experience: they’ll hit another plane, they’ll drown the fishing seiner, poison the athletes, a choice of hundreds of moments that can lead to war, and not just to break off relations between the two Koreas!
