SEOUL, June 4 (Xinhua) -- South Korea on Tuesday approved the full suspension of the Sept. 19 military agreement with the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK), according to multiple local media.

It was approved in a cabinet meeting presided over by Prime Minister Han Duck-soo, after it was decided during a National Security Council (NSC) working-level meeting in the previous day.

The NSC decided to halt the entire effect of the military agreement until mutual trust between the two sides is restored.

The agreement was signed by defense chiefs of the two sides during the 2018 inter-Korean summit in Pyongyang to stop all hostile acts across the border.
