Joint Korea Winter Asian Games proposed

Joint Korea Winter Asian Games proposed

"Once the ROK-U.S. Alliance solidifies the dates, we will publish that".

The allies will hold the Key Resolve and Ulchi-Freedom Guardian computer-based drills this year, the ministry of national defence in Seoul said in a report to the parliament on Tuesday.

"Our governments' shared position is that the delay of the Korea-US joint exercises is in keeping with the Olympic spirit", Song said.

"We have nothing to additionally comment on the ROK-U.S. joint military exercises", ministry spokesperson Choi Hyun-soo told a regular news briefing.

The report, a copy of which was seen by the Financial Times, did not clarify whether South Korea would host the annual Foal Eagle field training exercises, which involve soldiers on the ground and are particularly despised by the North.

A date for the start of delayed USA and South Korean military drills will be announced soon after the Paralympics end next month, Seoul's defense minister said Tuesday.

North Korea has said the military drills "can never be compatible" with talks between the North and South, but the U.S. has made it clear that it wants denuclearization of the Koreas above all, and will achieve the goal diplomatically or militarily.

Ivanka Trump's planned visit to South Korea later this week could include far more than attending the closing ceremony of the Winter Olympics.

The US and South Korea announced on Tuesday that drills would resume after the Olympics.

The US and South Korea will announce a new schedule for holding annual joint military exercises that were postponed in a bid to ease tensions with Pyongyang during the PyeongChang Winter Olympics.

South Korean marines participate in a U.S.

North Korean media has, since the postponement of the drills, called for them to be suspended entirely, recently claiming that they can "can never be compatible" with inter-Korean dialogue and improved DPRK-ROK relations.

The North also criticized a smaller Warrior Strike training exercise with US and South Korean troops that was held before the Olympics, calling it "nothing but a provocative act of war maniacs".
