USA military in Korea says no guidance on cancelling war games

President Trump walked with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on Sentosa Island on Tuesday

"We will be stopping the war games, which will save us a tremendous amount of money, unless and until we see the future negotiation is not going along like it should", Trump said in Singapore.

The ROK President said Seoul will support Pyongyang along the path to peace, vowing to "spare no effort in cooperating" with concerned parties "to ensure that the agreement can be implemented in its entirety".

"I think without the rhetoric we wouldn't have been here".

While the Singapore agreement calls for a "complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula", the term CVID is glaringly absent. "It's possible. We're dealing at a high level, a lot of things can change a lot of things are possible", Trump told him.

The U.S. had rejected such proposals in the past, but North Korea has declared an end to testing its nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles, and now Trump appears ready to end exercises while talks are ongoing.

"The Korean government should keep vigilant", Qassemi warned ahead of the historic meeting in Singapore between Mr. Trump and North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un. "That's not part of the equation right now".

"My first question is whether our allies, the South Koreans, were consulted in advance of suspending these military exercises", he told Reuters.

Trump reiterated plans to end joint military exercises between the United States and South Korea.

And what "exactly was the president committing to?" he added.

If the showy drills do end, it would be a concession on the part of the president to Kim.

"But we believe it is necessary to come up with various measures to improve dialogue more smoothly", the Blue House said.

South Korean President Moon Jae-in spoke by phone with Trump for 20 minutes late on Tuesday, but an official readout of the call made no mention of military exercises.

Hannity, who sat down with Trump for an interview after the summit, even compared Tuesday's event to former President Ronald Reagan's meeting with Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev at the height of the Cold War.

"The Singapore summit statement is essentially aspirational: no definitions of denuclearization, no timelines, no details as to verification", Haass said on Twitter.

But Trump refused to endorse a communique at the G7 summit over the weekend that said participants were "guided by our shared values of freedom, democracy, the rule of law and respect for human rights and our commitment to promote a rules-based global order".

Still, he credited the summit for starting a diplomatic process between North Korea and the United States.
