"He's a great negotiator, and he's a very strategic kind of a guy".

"I am concerned that the summit between Trump and Kim will prove to be a setback in the global efforts to denuclearize North Korea and also introduce instability in the alliance between Seoul and Washington". Both leaders are already present in the southeast Asian city-state, and the Singaporean foreign minister was seen taking selfies with the leader of frequently isolated North Korea.

But Trump told Hannity he thought his tough style paved the way for Tuesday's summit.

The U.S. Forces Korea (USFK) said Tuesday that it had received "no updated guidance" yet related to the regular exercises with South Korea that President Donald Trump said he will stop. I really believe that.

Added Trump: "So, I think the rhetoric, I hated to do it". "Sometimes I felt foolish doing it but we had no choice".

Tuesday saw Trump describe Kim as "a very talented man" and say he had "developed a very special bond" with the DPRK leader. The historic agreement came after the two leaders held several meetings throughout the day.

North Korea regularly calls the military exercises provocative preparations for a northward invasion, and numerous scariest standoffs in recent years on the Korean Peninsula have happened when the drills were being staged.

North Korean Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un should know that the USA has a history of "quitting treaties and violating their commitments" before trusting Washington, Iran's Foreign Ministry said Monday.

Panetta pointed to previous US administrations that tried to negotiate with Pyongyang, but failed to make the deals stick.

The decision to end the so-called "war games" was announced following summit talks between Trump and North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, for whom the exercises have been a source of irritation. "He didn't fight it".

One South Korean official said he initially thought Trump had mis-spoke.

Trump also made a point to say American college student Otto Warmbier - who died a year ago after being imprisoned by the North Koreans for 15 months - "did not die in vain".

U.S. President Donald Trump's abrupt announcement Tuesday that he will suspend U.S. military drills in South Korea appeared to catch the Pentagon and the Seoul government flat-footed, and it contradicted a pillar of Defence Secretary Jim Mattis' campaign to make U.S. troops more combat-ready.

Qassemi reportedly said the United States has a reputation for "quitting treaties and violating their commitments". "But I think without Otto, this whole thing wouldn't have happened".
