South Korean President Moon Jae-in and U.S. President Donald Trump agreed to delay regular joint military exercises set to overlap with the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics, South Korea’s Presidential office said on Thursday.

South Korean Presidential press secretary Yoon Young-chan said the agreement came in a telephone conversation between the two leaders. The tentative agreement was reportedly requested by the South Korean leader.

In a press release, the White House confirmed the leaders agreed to "de-conflict the Olympics and our military exercises so that United States and Republic of Korea forces can focus on ensuring the security of the Games."

The agreement between Moon and Trump came a day after the divided Koreas reopened their dialogue channel at the joint security area of Panmunjom, in anticipation of resuming government-level talks for the first time since December 2015.

The XXIII Olympic Winter Games is scheduled to take place from February 9 to 25 in Pyeongchang, South Korea.

El presidente de la República de Corea, Moon Jae-in, y su homólogo estadounidense, Donald Trump, acordaron no llevar a cabo los ejercicios militares entre Seúl y Washington durante los Juegos Olímpicos de Invierno en PyeongChang, según anunció el jueves la oficina de Moon.

Trump y Moon tomaron la decisión durante una llamada telefónica, según detalló la oficina presidencial surcoreana.

Los dos líderes acordaron hacer sus mejores esfuerzos para lograr unos Juegos Olímpicos de Invierno PyeongChang seguros. Así lo declaró la Casa Blanca confirmando el hecho de tal acuerdo.

El anuncio se produce al tiempo que Seúl y Pyongyang han retomado su vía de comunicación, por primera vez desde 2015, con el objetivo de discutir la participación de una delegación de Corea del Norte en los Juegos.

Los XXIII Juegos Olímpicos de Invierno se celebrarán del 9 al 25 de febrero en Pyeongchang, Corea del Sur.
