President Trumpsaid that he had asked for the concession at the last minute but Kim Jong Un agreed to start the process immediately, "He agreed to that so quickly and so nice - it was really a very nice thing, and he understands it".
Admittedly, Trump said Kim was very pleased with the development.
North Korea also insists that the US troop presence in the South, as well as its nuclear "umbrella" over allies Seoul and Tokyo, are part of America's "hostile" policy toward the North.
But the suspension of exercises hit the traveling delegation like a bombshell, Martin reports, and sent members scrambling to notify the South Koreans, catching most senior officials by surprise and leaving them unable to explain what the suspension of "war games" means.
Following the Singapore summit, wherein Trump castigated the exercises as "provocative", no party has effectively distinguished the difference between what constitutes "readiness training and training exchanges" and what constitutes "military exercises".
"They are tremendously expensive, the amount of money we spend on that is incredible and South Korea contributes but not 100 percent which is certainly a subject that we need to talk to them about also and that has to do with the military expenditures and also the trade".
After a banner year of testing bombs and ballistic missiles, he said, Kim Jong Un saw it as "the ideal time to change the tune to a happier, romantic melody and get the USA to ease off, relax sanctions, so he can buy more time and money with which to further advance his missile and nuclear capabilities, while coming across as a reasonable, reform-minded leader".
But American military officials at the Pentagon or U.S. Forces-Korea say they have received no guidance on the cancellation of the exercises.
"Seeing the two meet gives me hope that there will be no more conflict", said a man, 85, who was watching the live broadcast of the Trump-Kim summit at Seoul Station.
Kim agreed to the "complete denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula", a stock phrase favoured by Pyongyang that stopped short of long-standing USA demands for North Korea to give up its atomic arsenal in a "verifiable" and "irreversible" way. This concern of the communist state also found its place in the final document, which said that "Trump committed to provide security guarantees" to North Korea.
During the meeting, Trump offered to end the joint military exercise between the United States and the South Korean government. "The details of this agreement are critical to defining the way forward and only time will tell".
From 1950 to 1953 the Korean War waged on.
As they watched footage of the historic summit between leaders of the United States and North Korea on Tuesday, relatives of Japanese nationals abducted by North Korea decades ago expressed hope that the landmark meeting in Singapore will lead to the return of their loved ones. Cory Gardner, R-Colorado, told reporters that military exercises "will continue with South Korea" despite the president's remarks. North Korea historically has called for the removal of the U.S.
The "special bond" between Trump and Kim and the announced "unwavering commitment to complete denuclearization" apparently are not enough to lift or ease the existing punitive measures against Pyongyang, as Trump said they are to remain in effect but could be lifted.
Trump's supporters, who relish his unconventional diplomatic style, are likely to hail the summit as a foreign policy win for the president over one of America's most bitter long-time foes even as he feuds with Washington's closest allies after leaving an economic summit in Canada in disarray over the weekend. Under the circumstances we are negotiating a complete deal", Trump said, adding "It is inappropriate to have war games. "It is also perfectly reasonable be skeptical of North Korea's intentions, given its history of broken agreements", Thornberry said in a prepared statement.

We're at the beginning of a diplomatic process that will require patience, experience, and close coordination with our allies. Trump, it added, had expressed his "understanding" of the stance and had conveyed "his intention to halt" the exercises.
