S. Korea: No Plan to Stop Joint Military Drills with US

South Korean military authorities say that they have no plan to stop holding joint military drills with the U.S.

Defense Ministry spokesman Kim Min-seok said in a regular news briefing Monday that South Korean-U.S. military drills are defensive preparations against North Korea’s provocations.

He made it clear that the joint military exercises will continue as long as the South Korean military and the South Korea-U.S. Combined Forces Command exist, although Pyongyang lashes out against them.

North Korea’s National Defense Commission criticized on Sunday a scheduled South Korea-U.S. joint maritime military drill, saying the normalization of the Gaeseong Industrial Complex would be possible only when Seoul and Washington stop all hostile acts against Pyongyang.
