North Korea says Trump agreed on step-by-step denuclearization process

"It would have been nice to see something in exchange for that very significant act of suspending the exercises-it would have been nice to see some greater North Korean steps to indicate their sincerity-because at this point, apart from showing up for the meeting, they didn't really have to take any significant steps", he said.

In the face of the North's constant protest, the allies' militaries have defended the exercises as purely defensive in nature. We fly in bombers from Guam. "The President has raised a whole range of other issues in his press conference but I think it's too early to say that anything like suspension for suspension has occurred".

"Around the same time, Mr. Trump had an idea about how to counter the nuclear threat posed by North Korea, which he got after speaking to Russian President Vladimir Putin", The Journal wrote of the plan. "Regarding the peace mechanism, I want to say China is an important party to the Korean Peninsula affairs and also signatory to the Armistice treaty". I expect he has experts that know about the issues to give him good advice and I hope the president kind goes into it slowly.

"There is no single change in the suspension of the South-U.S. joint military exercise compared to the past", Nam said.

Last year, about 50,000 South Korean and 17,500 USA troops participated in Ulchi-Freedom Guardian, billed as the world's largest command-and-control exercise and aimed at defending against a North Korean attack.

USA military commanders in the South also said they had no warning of Mr Trump's announcement.

"We find it unlikely there will be any other impact on the dry bulk market in the near term", said William Tooth, analyst at Maritime Strategies International.

British PM fends off Brexit parliamentary defeat
That has potentially seismic consequences for the protracted and increasingly messy split from Brussels. But government officials admitted that the concession does constrain their freedom in the Brexit talks.

On Wednesday the foreign affairs minister, Julie Bishop, said the suspension of war games - a surprise concession offered by the U.S. president on Tuesday night that caught South Korea by surprise - was not in the official declaration but "the president spoke about it in answer to a question at a press conference". At a Defense Writers Group breakfast, Sen. Trump, it added, had expressed his "understanding" of the stance and had conveyed "his intention to halt" the exercises.

"I don't believe that suspension for suspension has actually been agreed", Ms Bishop said on Wednesday.

Trump, who returned to Washington early on Wednesday, hailed the meeting with Kim, the first between a sitting USA president and a North Korean leader, as a success that had removed the North Korean nuclear threat.

But on Tuesday morning Pentagon officials said they're still awaiting more detail from the White House.

"He was not surprised, he was consulted", she added.

Both in South Korea and Japan, there are mixed views on the military exercises.

Throughout the pre-summit negotiations, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) had always stressed an "action-for-action" strategy leading to denuclearization, as in Pyongyang being compensated every step of the way instead of waiting until after complete denuclearization - a process that could last over a decade - to be eligible for economic benefits.
