SEOUL - A halt in joint military drills with the United States may be necessary to expedite talks on North Korea's denuclearization, South Korea's presidential office said on Wednesday, according to the country's Yonhap news agency.

At a news conference after a historic meeting with North Korea's leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore on Tuesday, US President Donald Trump said he would halt what he called "very provocative" and expensive military exercises the United States stages regularly with South Korea.
