"The US Armed Forces in Korea are a matter of allied relations between South Korea and the United States and have nothing to do with the signing of a peace treaty," Kim Eui-kyeom, official spokesman for the presidential administration, said.

The agency quotes an anonymous source from the presidential administration that "the government's position is that the US military in Korea is acting as an intermediary with the strong neighbors surrounding the country, such as China and Japan."

The issue of the possible withdrawal of the US military, there are now of whom 28,000 in Korea, has been the subject of discussion in South Korea after the summit of the leaders of the North and South on April 27. At the same time, observers note that Kim Jong-un did not raise this issue at the meeting and even expressed his believe that South Korea will conduct military exercises with the US temporarily suspended for the sake of the summit. 

For the first time in the history of the two states, on April 27, North Korean leader Kim Jong-un paid a visit to the southern part of the demilitarized zone between the North and South of the Korean Peninsula and met with South Korean President Moon Jae-in. At the end of May - beginning of June, Kim Jong-un is scheduled to meet with US President Donald Trump.
