This picture taken on April 27, 2018 and released from North Korea's official Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) on April 29, 2018 shows North Korea's leader Kim Jong Un (right) talking with South Korea's President Moon Jae-in (left) at a bench on a bridge next to the military demarcation line at the truce village of Panmunjom. "It is not related in any aspect to the signing of the peace treaty", the president was quoted as saying by the Blue House spokesman, Kim Eui-kyeom. Hostilities ceased with an armistice agreement signed on July 27, 1953, by the USA -led U.N. Command, North Korea and China. "It will be hard to justify their continuing presence".

A USA foreign service officer, who did not want to be named, told VOA he hopes Pompeo's experiences in Congress, the US military, and the intelligence community "highlight that the United States faces real adversaries overseas, and that the [State] Department's career employees are resources - not the enemy".
Some worry that Beijing could raise questions about the continuing presence of the US forces in the South when the state of war is over. North Korea has used detained Americans as leverage to force the U.S.to open bilateral talks with it in the past.
