United States and South Korea to revise missile treaty, talk arms deal

US considering cutting trade with countries doing business with North Korea Trump

The White House did not mention the voluntary bilateral agreement but said the two leaders agreed to strengthen their defense cooperation and South Korea's defense capabilities.

"The reason they want it, I think, is they want to be able to either respond to North Korean provocation or they want North Korea to be aware that they have the capability to respond if North Korea goes too far", said Schuster, now a Hawaii Pacific University professor.

The two leaders pledged to continue to apply strong diplomatic and economic pressure on North Korea and to make all necessary preparations to defend against the growing threat by the North, the White House said.

The White House said earlier the U.S. president also approved planned South Korean purchases of billions of dollars in United States military equipment to counter the North.

President Moon Jae-in will hold summit talks with leaders of Japan, Mongolia and Russia during the his two-day visit to Vladivostok, Russia, Seoul's presidential office revealed Friday.

Moon has sought to be "more accommodating" to North Korea than his predecessor and looked for nonmilitary ways to resolve the situation, Schuster said, but the North's recent actions have undermined public confidence in his policies.

Trump and Moon shared a phone call on Friday where they came they came to the missile agreement amid heightened tensions with Kim. On Thursday US heavy bombers and stealth jet fighters took part in a joint live fire drill in South Korea intended as a show of force.

The shift in tack could reflect Trump's belief that it's time to try something new and his desire for China to do more to rein in North Korea, the professor said.

Rodong Sinmun, the mouthpiece of the North's ruling Workers' Party, issued sarcastic remarks in a commentary on Saturday (2 September), saying the allies' military drills to detect and destroy the reclusive state's transporter-erector-launcher (TEL) was nothing by "laughable".

Calls are also mounting in South Korea for Seoul to build nuclear weapons of its own to defend itself as nuclear-armed North Korea's missile stand-off with the United States escalates. There is no proper way out. "There's no change", said an official from the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy.

It is, however, to be noted that earlier this week, in response to North Korea's missile launch, Trump said on Twitter that talking to North Korea was "not the answer".
