S Korea to announce joint military drill plan with United States before April

S Korea to announce joint military drill plan with United States before April”

Song said it is not true that North Korea asked for the postponement as a condition for its participation in the PyeongChang Olympics.

South Korea military troops held for joint annual military exercise with the USA drawing criticism from North Korea, arguing that these training exercises will worsen the standoff over North Korea's nuclear weapons program.

At the same time, the document does not mention the larger Foal Eagle field exercises.

"It is a provocative act of chilling the active efforts of [North Korea] and enthusiasm of the worldwide community to defuse tension and create a peaceful environment", the Korean Central News Agency, a state-run mouthpiece, said.

Defense Minister Song Young-moo told a parliamentary defense committee meeting that the defense chiefs of the two countries will make an announcement sometime from March 18, when the Winter Paralympic Games are scheduled to close, and before April.

Per The Boston Globe's Pete Abraham, the Boston Red Sox remain "open" to signing free agent outfielder J.D. In the meantime, there's no other way to slice it: Martinez is a good (and necessary) get for the Red Sox.

After a high-level delegation from the North attended the opening ceremony, Mr Kim invited Moon Jae-in, South Korea's leader, to Pyongyang for what would be the first inter-Korean summit in more than a decade.

With the start date for the large-scale exercises yet to be confirmed, Seoul's Defense Ministry reported to lawmakers Tuesday that South Korea and the USA will conduct their spring Key Resolve manoeuvres to defend against the North's missile threat, according to Yonhap News Agency.

"The exercise was postponed according to the spirit of the Olympics", Song said.

Pyongyang is quickly dropping its reconciliation rhetoric spurred by the ongoing Olympic games, once again threatening Washington from resuming joint military drills with South Korea at the conclusion of the games.

But the communist state hates the joint war games, which are held in the spring and the fall, and warned on Monday that a move to restart them would be "a wild act of ruthlessly trampling even a small sprout of peace that has been now seen on the Korean peninsula".

During those talks North Korea agreed to send its athletes to the Games, along with a cheering squad and orchestra.

North Korea says the United States is to blame if anything dampens the mood for improving inter-Korean relations, while observers voice concern that cross-border military talks may generate sparks.

Song denied suggestions that Seoul was reluctant to confirm the date due to fears of provoking Pyongyang, telling lawmakers that "we are not studying the pleasure of North Korea".

"It is a provocative act of chilling the active efforts of the DPRK and enthusiasm of the global community to defuse tension and create a peaceful environment".
