Russia welcomes suspension of US-South Korean military drills, news agency reports

Trump's decision to suspend the exercises, coupled with the vague joint statement issued after his summit with Kim, have reinforced fears in South Korea that the North is attempting to take advantage of a USA president who appears to care less about the traditional alliance than his predecessors.

The U.S. -South Korean exercise calendar hits a high point every spring with the Foal Eagle and Max Thunder drills, which both wrapped up last month.

South Korea today will begin two days of war games to practice defending the disputed Dokdo islands off its east coast - against an unlikely attack by Japan.

He said that Russian Federation may join this process in the future.

Xi greeted Kim warmly, in images carried on state television. North Korea has long condemned them as invasion rehearsals. The U.S. command in South Korea said it had received no guidance on the cessation of training exercises. Kim is known to be an avid basketball fan and a good friend of retired American NBA star Dennis Rodman.

That, incidentally, could explain North Korea's assassination of Kim Jong-nam, the elder half-brother of Kim Jong-un, in 2017. Without the guns in place, it's likely the US or South Korea would have staged an invasion in place at some point during the decades-long military standoff. Significant lobbying is also underway by South Korean entrepreneurs to restart the inter-Korean industrial complex in North Korea's Kaesong - whose operations were halted by Seoul amid military tensions in 2016.

South Korea and the United States have agreed to delay a joint military exercise called the "Ulchi Freedom Guardian", South Korea's Yonhap news agency said on Tuesday. Pompeo is expected to consult with US National Security Adviser John Bolton and US Secretary of Defense James Mattis before starting consultations with North Korea, but the timing and location of that meeting are still uncertain.

US soldiers and vehicles prepare to participate in the Ulchi Freedom Guardian near the inter-Korean border in Paju, north of Seoul on August 22, 2016.

Marines of the USA and South Korea (wearing blue headbands on their helmets) take positions after landing on a beach during the joint military combined amphibious exercise, called Ssangyong, as part of the Key Resolve and Foal Eagle military exercises March 12, 2016, in Pohang, South Korea.

The drill's suspension would have been unthinkable previous year, when North Korea sharply raised animosity with a torrid run of nuclear and long-range missile tests that put the country closer to acquiring a nuclear arsenal capable of targeting the US mainland. Japan's Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga said there would be no changes to joint drill plans between the United States and Japan, both of which regularly practise to deter North Korea.

Seoul will also use the two-way or three-way communication channels established after the inter-Korean and the DPRK-U.S. summit "to push the agenda forward", she added.

Soccer is one of the most popular sports among ordinary North Koreans, along with volleyball and table tennis, and they will most likely be watching South Korea's matches on television, according to the people who have fled to the South.
