US, South Korea Call Off Joint Military Exercises
The U.S. and South Korea have called off a planned major joint military exercise slated to take place in August, a week after President Donald Trump said he wanted to suspend the U.S.’s “war games” with South Korea. Trump made that announcement following his historic meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un in Singapore.
The move is part of an ongoing effort by both nations to denuclearize North Korea.
According to South Korea’s KBS WORLD Radio, U.S. and South Korean leaders haven’t made decisions on other joint drills.
The Hill reports the U.S. and South Korea conduct three major exercises and some other smaller ones a year.
