Trump says U.S. will end joint drills in Korea while talks with DPRK ongoing

In press conference following summit, President describes exercises as "provocative"

The United States will end its annual joint military exercises with South Korea while diplomacy with North Korea continues, President Donald Trump said on Tuesday.

Speaking at an hour-long press conference in Singapore following the signing of a joint statement with Kim Jong Un, the U.S. President said it would be "inappropriate" for the drills to take place while talks with the DPRK were ongoing.
