  • Military says it's received no guidance about canceling Korean war games

On the other hand, Russian Federation and China, who joined North Korea in criticizing the joint military drills in the past, welcomed Trump's decision.

While most of the agreements confirmed to have come out of the Trump-Kim summit were pretty straightforward, advancing on the already discussed denuclearization, the meeting also ended with an announcement that the U.S. will suspend all joint military exercises with South Korea.

Trump also said he hopes the thaw in relations with North Korea will eventually allow him to withdraw USA troops from the peninsula. -South Korean war games. Speaking at a news conference after the summit, he called the military drills "tremendously expensive".

"And at the point that it's concluded they are not, the president's commitment to not have those joint exercises take place will no longer be in effect". "We assess positively the statement of U.S. president after the meeting saying that it was inappropriate to hold military exercises during the negotiations".

Peskov adds, however, that given how complicated the situation is around North Korea, the Kremlin isn't expecting a quick resolution.

This year, the spring exercise was postponed so as not to overlap with the Winter Olympics in South Korea. "There is no longer a Nuclear Threat from North Korea".

The drills went ahead in April instead. "Our unprecedented meeting - the first between an American President and a leader of North Korea - proves that real change is possible!"

Predictably, both USA neocon and humanitarian imperialist factions are unanimous in their fury, blasting the absence of "meat" in the joint statement.

"We would like to seek an understanding of this between Japan, the USA and South Korea", he said, Reuters reported. "Number one, we save money, a lot".

There was no immediate comment about the sanctions claim from the United States side.

Of course, until sanctions on doing business with the country are lifted, no worldwide traders are going to extend credit to North Korean importers.

-South Korea military exercises will resume if North Korea stops negotiating in good faith over its nuclear program.

"I think it is very provocative".

"We will stop the war games which will save us a tremendous amount of money", the USA president said at the press conference after the talks.

The move appeared to take USA allies in the region - as well as the country's military - by surprise.

Mr Trump's comments suggests he had accepted President Kim's position that the drills were a hostile provocation.

In a statement, U.S. Forces-Korea said it had received no guidance or forewarning of Trump's announcement of the halt to the exercises, and South Korea professed to be baffled.

Japan's Minister of Defence Itsunori Onodera told reporters Wednesday that joint military exercises were "vital" for East Asian security and hence should not be suspended.

Mr Trump's surprise decision has however been met with caution in Japan.

The final point on the document calls for North Korea to work with the United States in helping them recover the remains of prisoners of war and those missing in action - including immediately repatriating any bodies which have already been identified.
