The head of U.S. Forces Korea, General Robert Abrams, has reportedly said that the inter-Korean Comprehensive Military Agreement signed last September has noticeably helped lower regional tensions.
At a symposium Wednesday in Hawaii, sponsored by the Association of the U.S. Army, Abrams said the agreement has led to measures that fundamentally reduce the chance of misunderstandings and miscalculations.
Abrams downplayed the threat of the missile tests by North Korea earlier this month, calling them routine military activities.
He also said the agreement has helped the Trump administration's diplomatic efforts aimed at the final and fully verified denuclearization of North Korea.
