Trump assures Seoul of continued United States support over Pyongyang threat

Trump assures Seoul of continued United States support over Pyongyang threat

Kim's visit comes a matter of days after the news agency reported he inspected a special operations military unit.

Under a five-year cost-sharing accord reached two years ago, Seoul agreed to contribute $867 million toward US military costs in 2014, about 40 percent of the total.

Kim was briefing the media after a meeting by senior party members with national security ministers, including Defence Minister Han Min-koo, to discuss the USA presidential election, won by Republican Donald Trump.

Trump claimed that as president he would withdraw US troops from Korea unless Seoul pays more, ignoring that it already pays around half the cost.

"If there is anything the Obama administration has done.it has put the security of the USA mainland in the greatest danger", said an editorial by state-run newspaper Rodong Sinmun.

South Korea was assured of a "steadfast and strong" alliance with the United States by U.S. President-elect Donald Trump in a phone conversation with President Park Geun-hye Thursday.

The official newspaper of the North's ruling Workers' Party said on Thursday the USA wish for North Korea to abandon its nuclear weapons program "is only a fantasy of a bygone era" and the policy of pressure and sanctions had failed.

"Given that in the past, North Korea staged provocations during the period of the government transition in the USA, we need to closely cooperate in advance to thoroughly deter possible North Korean provocations and respond sternly if provoked", she said.

Trump's earlier statements have raised fears that his presidency could shake the alliance and even boost calls for South Korea to develop its own nuclear weapons - something suggested by the candidate earlier this year as a way to offset the USA burden.

"Trump has indicated that the greatest problem facing the world is the nuclear threat and members of his national security team hold the position that favor's applying strong pressure against the North", Yun said.

"I understand that Malaysia has diplomatic relations with North Korea and you don't want to reproach specific countries at the United Nations but these are human rights issues". Moon Jae-in said in his message Trump's win shows the "desire of the American people for change in the future".

In a statement, Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying says the government of the semiautonomous southern Chinese financial hub "looks forward to further deepening our links with the U.S".

President-elect Trump, who has expressed admiration for some authoritarian leaders, such as Russia's Vladimir Putin, has not yet addressed worldwide efforts to hold North Korean leaders accountable for widespread and systematic human rights abuses. Trump, however, also opposes North Korea's activities.

While it remains unclear what the two leaders actually agreed in a later phone conversation; a statement from Netanyahu's office said the Israeli has been invited to a meeting in the U.S., "at the earliest opportunity".
