In July 2016, the North Korean government demanded the withdrawal of the US military from South Korea as one of the conditions of the denuclearization in a statement.
Experts assess that any steps made to wither the US-South Korean alliance could precipitate the decline of the US as a power in Asia, and then the world.
Seoul, which has tens of thousands of USA troops on its soil to help protect it from its hostile northern neighbor, said the suspension would affect the large-scale Ulchi Freedom Guardian exercises slated for August.
"I can assure that the level of consultation between us and the United States at all levels has never been so close and so frequent", she said.
Both South Korea and the USA have said a peace treaty is possible only if North Korea agrees to give up its nuclear arsenal. The "Ulchi Freedom Guardian" drill will not take place this year as it did last year, an official told Reuters.

The two parties are expected to continue discussions on the issue of denuclearization.
Amid concerns over a potential U.S. retreat from its postwar role in the region's security architecture, Suga, Japan's top government spokesman, emphasized that the premise of the suspension is that North Korea engages in what U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has called "productive, good-faith negotiations".
The first unified Olympic team was a joint women's ice hockey squad for the Pyeongchang Games in February, and there was criticism in Seoul that some South Koreans were being pushed out.
This is the first time in 26 years that joint military exercises is suspended.
The ministry also said that there is no decision yet regarding other allied training exercises. He added that scrapping the drills will save the United States "a tremendous amount of money".
That led to a rare rapprochement between the two Koreas, the North's participation in the Games and ultimately the Singapore summit.
The summer Ulchi exercise is one of three major annual joint exercises that the two countries have staged for decades to hone their ability to cope with potential conflicts with North Korea. "They could quickly come back should we see the dialogue momentum losing speed or North Korea not living up to its denuclearization commitment", said Foreign Minister Kang. President Trump opened the doors for friendly relations through basketball, and it is no secret that North Korea leader Kim Jong-un loves basketball.
