Pentagon indefinitely suspends some more training exercises with S.Korea

The United States and South Korea have agreed to indefinitely suspend two exchange program training exercises, in the aftermath of the summit earlier this month between U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. At a news conference after the meeting with Kim in Singapore, Trump announced that he would halt what he called “very provocative” and expensive regular military exercises that the United States holds with South Korea. North Korea had long sought an end to the war games.Earlier this week, the United States and South Korea said they were suspending planning for August’s Freedom Guardian exercise. Last year, 17,500 American troops and more than 50,000 South Korean troops joined the Freedom Guardian drills, although the exercise is mostly focused on computerized simulations rather than field exercises.
