  • Trump hasnt sought options to reduce troops in S Korea: WH

Earlier Friday, National Security Adviser John Bolton called the Times report "utter nonsense".

"Pyongyang Time" was created as tensions between the authoritarian country and the USA grew over Pyongyang's nuclear weapons program and global sanctions aimed at dismantling it.

Trump continued talking to reporters about the summit after boarding Air Force One.

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and South Korean president Moon Jae-in met for the first time in over a decade on April 27 to discuss the possibility of denuclearizing the peninsula and improving relations between the two countries.

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

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

At the stroke of midnight in Seoul on Saturday (11 a.m. ET Friday), the goodwill continued, with North Korea adjusting its clocks 30 minutes forward to be in the same time zone as its southern neighbor.

He said the details of the summit would be announced soon, with the White House saying it could take place this month as long as North Korea makes specific concessions. They signed a Declaration on the complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula and agreed to enter into a peace Treaty that ends the war that divided the Peninsula in 1953.

Neighbor sought in murder of couple
An active arrest warrant was issued for Mooney in connection to an unrelated auto theft on April 30 in Northampton Township. The body of the couple was reportedly discovered by a painter who was working on the outside of the home around 10:00 a.m.

US President Donald Trump has not sought any options from the Pentagon to reduce the presence of American troops in South Korea, the White House confirmed today.

Kim is to meet with Trump in May or early June.
