    If there was ever any doubt that the US has absolutely no Korean interests in mind...

    South Korea says Pompeo complained about inter-Korean military pact

    U.S. Secretary of State Pompeo has expressed "discontent" with an inter-Korean military pact reached during last month's summit, South Korea's foreign minister said on Wednesday, in a rare disclosure of signs of disagreement with its U.S. ally.

    The two Koreas agreed to halt military drills, set up a no-fly zone near the border and gradually remove landmines and guard posts within the Demilitarised Zone, among other steps.

    Do approval means "permission" in English? The S. Korean people are wondering...

    It's convenient to dismiss kernels of truth about intentions and the big picture with the usual propaganda and excuses i.e. blame it on a speaker's personal traits or interests. Right for the South Koreans to wonder in conjunction with the following earlier story. Prolonging conflict between the Koreas plays into US greed to continue wielding undue, I would say colonial, influence over SK and maintain a military presence there for ulterior motives.

    The South Koreans are just trying to save face. They know very well that what Trump said was the simple truth. SK doesn't have an independent foreign policy.

    Korea is no different from the 18th and 19th century. The fate of the Korean peninsula is once again decided by foreign powers.

    U ain't gonna have anything without a roundtable consisting of: US, China, SK, Japan, Russia, NK. Ofc the ones making the actual decisions will be China and US (and perhaps Russia)
