US President Donald Trump begins Asia tour, lands in Japan

US President

Renegotiating South Korea's bilateral free trade agreement with the US, dubbed KORUS, is likely be high on the agenda during the Trump-Moon summit. Trump will instead visit Camp Humphreys, a military base about 40 miles south of Seoul.

The information has been disclosed after a group of US Congressmen called for an assessment of possible fallout should military action commence.

At the very least, millions of people would die in this sort of war. "This will ultimately bring peace and prosperity to the Korean Peninsula".

'With that in mind, the thought of sending troops into harm's way and expending resources on another potentially unwinnable war is chilling. The president joined Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in Japan on Sunday and Monday, enjoying a casual burger lunch and golf - and discussing the nuclear crisis.

"By warmly welcoming President Trump as our guest, we'll use this opportunity to take our alliance beyond the comprehensive one and toward an even greater alliance", Park told reporters at Cheong Wa Dae.

Trump's trip comes amid escalating tensions with North Korea, which has continued to pursue its missile and nuclear programs and ramped up its missile testing.

"Some people say my rhetoric is very strong but look what has happened with very weak rhetoric in the last twenty-five years", Trump said, with Abe standing next to him.

"Every once in a while in the past, they underestimated us". It was not pleasant for them, was it?




North Korea's recent actions, including several missiles that overflew Japan and Pyongyang's sixth and largest nuclear test, have raised the stakes in the most critical global challenge of Trump's presidency. "We will not stand for that, the era of strategic patience is over".

'We will never yield, never waver and never falter in defense of our freedom, ' Trump said. "The U.S. should not expect us to make any change".

The claim was made in September by a retired Air Force general who said the figure was estimated based on a conventional war scenario and did not include potential use of nuclear weapons.

Russian President Vladimir Putin and his USA counterpart Donald Trump are set to discuss a Syria settlement at an Asian economic summit in Vietnam next week, RIA news agency reported Saturday.

North Korea has said in public statements that it wants an official end to the Korean War.

And a high-profile defector last week said that North Korean military officers have been trained to trigger a devastating counterstrike if their country were attacked by the United States.

Beijing has pleaded with both the USA and Pyongyang to 'realize that resorting to military force will never be a viable way to resolve the peninsula issue and their own concerns, adding that 'War on the peninsula will have no victor'.

Meanwhile, South Korea has also begun tightening its measures against the Pyongyang by implementing sanctions against 18 North Koreans. Trump has criticized the deal as a source of the USA trade deficit with South Korea, an argument officials there dismiss.
