SEOUL, June 14 (Yonhap) -- President Moon Jae-in on Thursday said South Korea may consider suspending its joint military drills with the United States to help build trust and ease tensions with North Korea.

"President Moon said if North Korea implements denuclearization measures and sincere dialogue continues between South Korea and the North, the North and the United States, to ease their hostile relations, the country needs to flexibly change its military pressure against the North in the spirit of building mutual trust as agreed in the Panmunjom Declaration," the presidential office Cheong Wa Dae said.

Moon's remarks were made in a plenary meeting of the National Security Council, which marked the first of its kind this year.
