North Korean leader Kim Jong Un said it was "urgent" for North Korea and the United States to halt "irritating and hostile military actions against each other" during talks on Tuesday with U.S. President Donald Trump and other U.S. officials, North Korea's state media said on Wednesday.

Kim said in Tuesday meeting that the North and the United States should commit to avoid antagonizing each other and take legal, institutional steps to guarantee it, a report by the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) said.

The report added Trump said he "understood" and promised to halt joint U.S.-South Korea military exercises while talks with the North were continuing.
