North and South Korean time zones get in sync

US Not Seeking To Reduce Forces In South Korea: National Security Adviser

It is noted that North Korea, according to the decree of the Presidium of the Supreme people's Assembly, have synchronized their time with the South Korean set that clock 30 minutes forward on the night of 5 may, which has already arrived in the country.

"The New York Times story is utter nonsense", he said.

A full withdrawal of USA troops was unlikely, the officials said, according to the paper.

Meanwhile, Trump also disputed a published report that he had asked the Pentagon to present a plan for the withdrawal or reduction of USA forces stationed in South Korea, saying such a move was "not on the table". "As I said yesterday, stay tuned".

Later speaking to reporters at the Andrews Joint Air Force base, Trump denied reports that he was planning to withdraw U.S. troops from S Korea.

Trump said a date and location have been decided for the summit with Kim, but he declined to disclose those details, saying they would be announced soon.




Earlier this week, the United States president suggested that the demilitarised zone, or DMZ, between North and South Korea would be an excellent venue for the planned summit, but that Singapore was also a possible site.

The officials said, however, that a peace treaty between the two Koreas could diminish the need for the 23,500 USA soldiers now stationed on the peninsula, the newspaper said.

ICAO Asia and Pacific Regional Director Arun Mishra will travel to North Korea with the director of the agency's air navigation bureau, Stephen Creamer, to open discussion on air navigation and safety issues. On Thursday, Vice President Mike Pence postponed a planned trip to Brazil at the end of May to free up resources for the summit.

Amid easing tensions between the USA and North Korea, those within Trump's orbit have hinted that the hostages would soon be released.

The meeting was suggested and provisionally agreed in March, after a South Korean delegation met Mr Kim in Pyongyang and later visited the White House.
