'We save a fortune by not doing war games'

U.S. Forces in Korea "has received no updated guidance on execution or cessation of training exercises", said USFK spokeswoman Lieutenant Colonel Jennifer Lovett, Reuters reported. This year, 100 aircraft participated in show of air power, including eight US F-22 stealth fighters and a number of B-52 strategic bombers based on the Pacific island of Guam.

As of Tuesday morning, U.S. Forces in Korea are still moving ahead with plans for the annual exercise known as Ulchi Freedom Guardian.

Readiness training refers to standard military drills and training carried out by the 28,000 U.S. troops in South Korea, alongside their South Korean counterparts.

Former Defense Secretary under President Barack Obama Leon Panetta says President Trump shouldn't give anything to North Korea until he sees what steps they are prepared to take to denuclearize.

Opposition Leader Bill Shorten agreed the summit was a positive step forward, "even if some of the images were certainly unusual".

He said "to solve this problem, of course, we need to achieve denuclearisation and complete denuclearisation", Trump's main demand that North Korea should dismantle its nuclear weapons programme.

The vice president "didn't say this at the Senate lunch today", she said of Gardner's remarks.

Currently, the United States has 28,500 personnel in South Korea.

The White House contradicted him at first, but U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said more recently that the USFK issue should not be made public so that U.S. and North Korean leaders can take the liberty to make right decisions.

Singapore PM Lee Hsien Loong said that the joint statement "is a crucial first move in the long journey towards lasting peace and stability on a denuclearised Korean Peninsula, which would benefit our region and the rest of the world". Both leaders expressed optimism about future relations and the denuclearization effort.

U.S. President Donald Trump said Tuesday that he will stop "provocative and expensive" war games with South Korea in a surprise reference to the joint military exercises Pyongyang has criticized as a rehearsal of invasion. "That is to say, it should be solved through dialogue, through peaceful means", Chinese state councillor and foreign minister Wang Yi said soon after Trump and Kim began their meeting.

Critics have said the agreement does not go almost far enough or hold significant weight.

"Wow. If this is it.this is depressing", Robert E. Kelly, professor of political science at Pusan National University in South Korea, tweeted.

Even as Pompeo staunchly defended the summit results, he was less exuberant than Trump, who tweeted on his return to the USA on Monday morning: "Just landed - a long trip, but everybody can now feel much safer than the day I took office. This looks pretty generic".
