Media captionTrump Kim summit: Win-win, or a Kim win?
Tuesday saw the South Korean Presidential office say Seoul "needs to figure out the precise meaning and intention of Trump's comments".
The drills - often called "war games" - are held in South Korea with local forces and United States soldiers stationed there. In case of the United States and North Korea, it didn't happen as extensively as one would expect for North Korea is too isolated a country yet to engage in all-out diplomatic parleys.
Trump also called the war games "provocative" and "inappropriate", echoing language both Beijing and Pyongyang have used to characterise the annual war games that have been conducted for decades.
"The fact that we are moving towards a peace agreement and denuclearization on the Korean peninsula - however slow that process might be - is tremendous progress", she said.
The meeting was also a "defining moment" for Trump, leader of "the world's police at the moment", said Cabalza.
Yu said China supports ongoing talks - whether they are bilateral or multilateral - but China will be a major player regardless of the form.
Pentagon spokeswoman Dana White denied that Mattis was caught off guard by the announcement, telling Pentagon reporters: "There were no surprises". "While it could be pushed in a gradual manner, I think the "complete" denuclearization will not happen in the near future", he said.
How did South Korea react?
The summit meeting is a good start between the US and North Korea, she said.
Ahead of the summit with Kim, speculation persisted that the two sides might discuss withdrawing the USA troops from the South, as Pyongyang has called for the pullout as a key signal to the end of Washington's "hostile" policy to it.
The US maintains around 30,000 troops in South Korea and once a year it brings in others - typically from its Pacific base in Guam - to join large-scale drills.
In the face of the North's constant protest, the allies' militaries have defended the exercises as purely defensive in nature.
The declaration - one that goes to the heart of the security of U.S. allies and the United States' western defense perimeter - raised concerns that Trump had made a significant concession at his summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un without getting anything solid in return, particularly as he raised the prospect of pulling troops out of South Korea altogether.
"On Tuesday, South Korea praised the summit: "[The] Agreement will be recorded as a historic event that has helped break down the last remaining Cold War legacy on earth.
Members of the minor People's Democracy Party also marched in front of the US Embassy, demanding the US president and North Korean leader immediately sign a peace treaty and for the US to withdraw its troops stationed in South Korea.
Observers say the document lacks substance, in particular on how denuclearisation would be achieved.
Human rights abuses will be discussed eventually, she added, but the meeting between Trump and Kim should be seen as a step in the right direction.
Kim Yong Chol's center-stage presence before and during the recent thaw between the two Koreas and Pyongyang and Washington indicate he is one of the most powerful, closest aides of the young leader.
He said that though he asked at the last minute, Kim agreed "so quickly" and was "so nice" about it: "He understands it".
On conservative Fox News and among Mr Trump's core supporters, the president was lauded for a historic diplomatic breakthrough.
"We are working with China to a lesser extent".
Republicans in Congress have been more measured. No details of what those steps would be were given.
He was "best at pressing and humiliating" his opponents during negotiations, according to a retired South Korean diplomat who met him.
The purchases are being finalized as Secretary of State Mike Pompeo claims that the USA can achieve the denuclearization of the Korean peninsula in just two and a half years.
Tuesday was the latest reminder that in just 16 months, USA - and worldwide - politics have been turned upside down.
