"Until such time as North Korea takes concrete steps to denuclearize, our policy should be to continue the maximum pressure campaign", he said.

Iran said Monday that North Korea should be wary of negotiating with Trump in light of his withdrawal from the landmark agreement, which the Obama administration had reached with Iran, Britain, France, Germany, China and Russian Federation.

Other current and former US defense officials, speaking on condition of anonymity, told Reuters they were surprised by the announcement and expressed concern about lowering the readiness of American military personnel on the Korean peninsula.

Although Trump was quick to declare success for the unprecedented summit with Kim Jong Un marked by handshakes and smiles, experts said a joint statement signed in Singapore seemed mostly to rehash old broken promises made by Pyongyang to successive USA administrations.

The move appears to be based on the "freeze for freeze" proposal mooted by China, under which North Korea would stop nuclear and missile tests in exchange for a halt to the military exercises.

The lone dissenting voice on the show was co-host Jessica Tarlov, who called it a missed opportunity that Trump didn't forcefully bring up North Korea's horrific human rights abuses. Every time the survey has been conducted, the greatest support has been for "continue diplomatic efforts to get North Korea to suspend its nuclear program".

"The USFK has received no updated guidance on execution or cessation of training exercises - to include this fall's scheduled Ulchi Freedom Guardian", it said in response to a question from Yonhap News Agency. "South Korea defensive military drills".

The reported agreement, if confirmed by the United States, could be considered as a concession by Trump because US officials had called for the North to take swift disarmament measures before getting major outside concessions and benefits.
