The U.S. military has indefinitely postponed major joint exercises with South Korea.
According to the AFP, citing a U.S. military official on Thursday, the move was made in line with President Donald Trump's pledge to halt "provocative" military drills following his historic summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.
However, the official did not specify what exercises will be suspended and when the freeze will kick in.
Currently, there are three major joint military exercises, including the recent Key Resolve and Foal Eagle trainings, which occur every March.
CNN also cited several officials with knowledge of North Korea-U.S. summit follow-up measures as saying the Trump administration is expected to announce the formal suspension of the upcoming August drill as early as Thursday.■
