Pentagon Says US Suspends Major Military Drills With South Korea After Trump-Kim Deal

The US is suspending major military drills with South Korea, the Pentagon says.

“Major military exercises have been suspended indefinitely on the Korean Peninsula,” a senior US official told AFP.

The remark follows a June 12 statement by US President Donald Trump, who announced that military drills with South Korea are inappropriate amid the negotiations on a denuclearization of North Korea.

Trump’s statement was made during a press conference after a meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

“The war games are very expensive, we pay for the majority of them,” Trump said adding that drills may be suspended.
