Top commander calls second Kim summit ‘positive sign’

The commander of U.S. troops on the Korean peninsula said Tuesday he sees a second summit between President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un as a “positive sign,” though he says there’s been “little to no verifiable change” in Pyongyang’s nuclear capabilities.

“The reduction in tension on the peninsula, it’s palpable,” U.S. Forces Korea commander Gen. Robert Abrams said, noting it has been 440 days since North Korea’s last missile or nuclear test. “My personal opinion is the announcement of a second summit of President Trump and the supreme leader, Kim, is a positive sign of continued dialogue. Because it certainly beats the alternative of what we were living with in 2017.”
