South Korea Ends Annual War Training

Photo: China Morning Post – South Korea (South Korea) is reported to have suspended their annual war games. This exercise is known to be part of a joint exercise with the United States (US).

Reporting from South Korea’s Minister of Security and Defense, Tuesday (10/7/2018), this exercise usually takes place every August simultaneously with Freedom Guardian military exercises with the United States.

Nevertheless, he said his country’s war games would continue as normal and have no impact on what US policy is doing.

As reported earlier, the United States and South Korea agreed to end the war games of both countries with an unspecified time.

The decision was taken by US President Donald Trump to pledge to end war games after his summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un in Singapore on June 12.

“Our military will carry out independent drills planned this year and decide on joint exercises in close consultation with the United States,” Defense Minister Song Young-moo said.
