SINGAPORE (AP) — The Latest on the summit between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un (all times local):

3:20 p.m.

A spokesman of South Korean President Moon Jae-in says Washington and Seoul need to consider a "variety of ways to further facilitate dialogue" while they are engaged in nuclear negotiations with Pyongyang.

Kim Eui-kyeom made the comments on Wednesday when asked to respond to President Donald Trump, who following his summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un said that the United States and South Korea should stop their joint military exercises "as long as we are negotiating in good faith."

Kim, Moon's spokesman, says Seoul is still trying to figure out the exact meaning and intent of Trump's comments.

10:50 a.m.

The U.S. top diplomat is jetting to South Korea to brief the country's president as Asian allies try to parse the implications of the extraordinary nuclear summit in Singapore between President Donald Trump and North Korea's Kim Jong Un.

South Korea's presidential office says U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will meet President Moon Jae-in Thursday morning to discuss the meeting, which made history as the first between sitting leaders of the U.S. and North Korea.

Trump and Kim reached a broad agreement that offered few specifics but included promises of U.S. security guarantees and a reiteration from Kim of his country's commitment to "complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula."

Trump however seems to have caught allies off guard by saying he would stop U.S.-South Korean war games.
