President Donald Trump (L) signs a document while US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo looks on during a signing ceremony with North Korea’s leader Kim Jong Un during their historic US-North Korea summit, at the Capella Hotel on Sentosa island in Singapore on June 12, 2018.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says joint U.S.-South Korea military exercises will resume if North Korea stops negotiating in good faith over its nuclear program.

Pompeo is in South Korea a day after President Donald Trump met with Kim Jong Un and announced the U.S. would freeze what he called “war games” with North Korea.

Pompeo says he was there when Trump talked about it with Kim. He says Trump “made very clear” that the condition for the freeze was that good-faith talks continue. He says if the U.S. concludes they no longer are in good faith, the freeze “will no longer be in effect.”

Pompeo says Trump was “unambiguous” in conveying that to Kim.
