South Korea and the United States are likely to announce the suspension of the large-scale combined military drill this week amid talks with North Korea, worldwide media reported.
Trump's plan to stop training exercises with South Korea is stirring up heated debate, with supporters calling it a good-will gesture to facilitate the North's denuclearization and naysayers a blow to the bilateral alliance.
Still, they've been on this roller coaster before, so they are hedging their bets.
President Donald Trump is falsely crediting his Singapore summit with the destruction of missile launch sites in North Korea.
The main reason that the United States and East Asian countries hyperventilated about the North Korean nuclear threat was the fear that North Korea could not be deterred from attacking as had other potentially radical countries - Maoist China, the communist Soviet Union and Pakistan - when they got nuclear weapons.
THE FACTS: This much is true: North Korea announced the suspension of nuclear-weapons testing and testing of intercontinental ballistic missiles in April, to soften the ground for the diplomatic opening with South Korea and the U.S. North Korea has not conducted a missile test since November 28.

Kim said "the way to come here was not easy". But for now, Kim has given up very little militarily, in return for a public embrace from the world's most powerful nation. He can now call me if he has any difficulty.
"I can now call him", he said. About 2,400 are still missing from South Korea.
This agreement does far less than the US agreements with North Korea in 1994 and 2005, which failed to get rid of that nation's nuclear weapons and missile programs. But he said the vast majority have yet to be located and retrieved from various cemeteries and battlefields across the countryside. "They weren't exactly selling tickets", Trump said at a news conference. "Now, some action has to be taken".
A senior South Korean military officer confirmed to NBC News that the suspension of military drills was "being discussed between the South Korean and US authorities". This may happen, as Kim agreed to work toward the return of US troops missing in North Korea from the Korean War.
Between 1996 and 2005, joint U.S. "There is no longer a Nuclear Threat from North Korea".
"But what he really got was the opportunity, for the first time, to be on the worldwide stage as an equal with the president of the United States and all the trappings and flags created to make him look like an equal - something that his father and grandfather had sought for years to achieve and never did".
