South Korea and the United States started the joint spring exercises
Last week, the armed forces of the United States and South Korea began a spring exercise on a reduced scale. The leadership maneuvers, which will continue until Thursday, have been curtailed by Seoul, taking into account the coronavirus pandemic and diplomacy in the row over North Korea’s nuclear weapons program.
North Korea sees itself as being provoked by the United States’ regular military exercises with South Korea. The two countries refuse to accuse Pyongyang of preparing an attack. “War drills and hostility cannot go hand in hand with dialogue and cooperation,” said the statement by Kim Yoo Jong, who has been an influential advisor to her brother Kim Jong Un for years.
