"The U.S. -South Korean military exercises have already been toned down in scale and substance in order not to provoke North Korea", said Shin Beom-chul, a researcher at the Asan Institute for Policy Studies in Seoul.

On Sunday, South Korea's Yonhap news agency quoted unnamed diplomatic sources as saying that the United States had proposed to North Korea that working-level talks be held this week and was awaiting a response.

"What is going to happen is over the next two or three weeks, the teams are going to start working to see whether or not they can do something", Trump said after the June 30 meeting, in which he became the first sitting USA president to set foot in North Korea.

(CNN)North Korea has threatened to renege on commitments made to the United States on denuclearization, accusing the Trump administration of breaching the "spirit" of the negotiations by planning joint military exercises with South Korea.

"If realised, it will affect the working-level talks", said officials.

North Korea says it is rethinking whether to abide by its moratorium on nuclear and missile tests and other steps aimed at improving ties with the U.S.

"With the USA unilaterally reneging on its commitments, we are gradually losing our justification to follow through on the commitments we made with the USA", it said.

Thousands of USA forces have remained in South Korea, mostly along the heavily fortified border with the North, since open warfare ceased in the Korean War 1953.

The last long-range missile test by North Korea occurred in November 2017, but it has conducted test-firings of shorter range rockets since.

The United States' decision to forge ahead with drills less than a month after Trump and Kim last met is "clearly a breach" of the two leaders' agreements made in Singapore past year, and is an "an undisguised pressure" on North Korea, the foreign ministry spokesman said. The talks in Hanoi in February collapsed without agreement, as the United States insisted North Korea completely denuclearize and North Korea pushed for relief from sanctions. North Korea will be watching the "next move by the US" before it decides how to proceed on the talks, the official added.
