'Little to no change' in N. Korean capabilities: US general - 3 days ago, 19:44
President Donald Trump met North Korean leader Kim Jong Un last June in a bid to resolve tensions over Pyongyang's nuclear program, and the two signed off on a vaguely worded document in which Kim pledged to work towards "the denuclearization of the Korean peninsula."
General Robert Abrams, the new head of US Forces Korea, said the summit had helped dial down tensions on the Korean peninsula, but had not led to substantive changes.
"Little to no verifiable change has occurred and North Korea's military capabilities," Abrams told the Senate Armed Services Committee.
"Further, North Korea's conventional and asymmetric military capabilities along with their continued development of advanced conventional systems remains unchecked. These capabilities continue to hold the United States, the Republic of Korea and our regional allies at risk."
Abrams added that North Korea was continuing its winter military training at historic norms.
