"We'll have to see the concrete steps that North Korea takes", she told the ABC.

But it turns out, the issue was discussed and will be again in the future. "We pay for the majority of them", the president said.

It also seemed to leave officials completely off guard in South Korea, where the presence of US troops has always been described as necessary to maintaining peace on the peninsula.
