Can India, Pakistan Learn From Trump-kim Summit?

Speaking to reporters in Singapore, Trump said that pausing the drills would save the USA "a tremendous amount of money" and described them as "very provocative" - echoing North Korea's criticism that the exercises are a rehearsal for a US-led invasion.

In his almost three minute video message, Trump talked about his recent summit meeting with Kim. China had proposed a so-called freeze-for-freeze a year ago, whereby North Korea would cease all nuclear testing and ballistic missile launches in exchange for the U.S. -North Korean summit was more advantageous to North Korea than the United States.

The drills come just days after President Donald Trump announced the suspension of long-running USA joint exercises with South Korea - aimed at deterring North Korea - calling them expensive and "provocative".

"Following close cooperation, South Korea and the USA made a decision to suspend all planning activities for the UFG, the defensive exercise slated for August", the ministry said in a text message sent to reporters.

US and South Korean forces have been training together for years, and routinely rehearse everything from beach landings to an invasion from the North, or even "decapitation" strikes targeting the North Korean regime.

Sweeping exaggerations about policy efficacy has become a sticking point of the Trump administration and based on this report, that hasn't changed, even on the worldwide stage.

The president has suggested strongly that the meeting with Kim ensured that North Korea was no longer a threat.

In a joint statement following the Singapore meeting, Kim pledged to "work towards the complete denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula". Moon Seong Mook, a former South Korean military official, calls the joint drills and the US troops stationed in South Korea the core of the alliance between the two countries.

-North Korea summit, some political commentators say.

China has welcomed the warming of ties between Washington and Pyongyang, and offered to help.

"The public still has a lot of questions about the North Korea situation that were not answered by this meeting", Patrick Murray, director of the Monmouth University Polling Institute, said in a statement.

An announcement could come this week to suspend the major joint military exercises, South Korea's Yonhap news agency reports.

On his first visit to China, in March, Mr Kim arrived to Beijing aboard an armoured train, and he spent two days in the capital for talks with President Xi Jinping.

Richard N. Haass, the president of the Council on Foreign Relations, said, "A consistent theme of the Trump administration has been to downgrade the value of allies and alliances". The US had always insisted they are purely defensive in nature.

There was no immediate reaction from North Korea.

Trump tweaked his political rival Sunday, saying, "Chuck Schumer said 'the Summit was what the Texans call all cattle and no hat.' Thank you Chuck, but are you sure you got that right?"
