North Korea Publicly Executed Administrator Of Guesthouse Where South Korean President Stayed

US President Donald Trump at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda Maryland on Friday

The Paekhwawon State Guest House is affiliated with the Supreme Guard Command, which protects North Korean leader Kim Jong-un's family and the leadership.

Although he expressed optimism about the February 27-28 Hanoi summit in verbal testimony to the Senate Armed Services Committee, Admiral Philip Davidson, head of the Indo-Pacific Command, expressed doubts about North Korean intentions in his written submission to the panel. Unlike previous multi-year deals, the term of the new agreement is one year.

Ahead of the second US-North Korea leaders' summit, Malaysia's Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad says Malaysia is ready to settle its problem with North Korea which followed the high-profile assassination of Kim Jong-nam, the half-brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un in Malaysia. The two men are expected to deliberate on the denuclearization of North Korea.

Following his first meeting with Kim, Trump abruptly announced he would cancel large-scale military training exercises in South Korea.

However, he said that action was reversible and added: "Much needs to be done to make meaningful progress".

"Pyongyang "is using civilian facilities, including airports, for ballistic missile assembly and testing with the goal of effectively preventing "decapitation" strikes" on a smaller number of identified nuclear and missile assembly and manufacturing sites", the United Nations report said.

Seoul said Sunday it agreed to hike its payment for maintaining American troops on its soil, settling a dispute with its longtime ally ahead of a second summit between the USA and North Korea.

The new deal must still be approved by South Korea's parliament, but it would boost its contribution to 1.03 trillion won (687.68 million pounds) from 960 billion won in 2018.

The deal is for one year only and negotiations for next year would have to begin in a few months.

"With only two weeks until the summit, it will be hard to resolve all the tricky issues, but there's a chance if we can agree on a timeline (for denuclearization)", a South Korean delegation member quoted Biegun as saying.

North Korea's participation in sporting events has in the past been hindered by the country's relationship with the South.

The State Department declined to comment.

Stanford University's Center for International Security and Cooperation reports that the volume of fissile material produced by the Yongbyon Nuclear Scientific Research Center North Korea is sufficient to enable growth in the number of nuclear warheads in the North Korean arsenal. Most U.S. troops were withdrawn in 1949 but they returned the next year to fight alongside South Korea in the 1950-53 Korean War.
