US, S. Korean militaries to conduct joint drills despite detente with Pyongyang

US, S. Korean militaries to conduct joint drills despite detente with Pyongyang | 20 Feb 2018 | The US and South Korea will go ahead with military drills off the Korean peninsula despite the "Peace Olympics" and the recent thaw in North-South relations, the South's defense ministry said in a report to the National Assembly. In the run-up to the Olympic Games in PyeongChang, Seoul was able to convince Washington to delay the start of their annual winter/springtime joint military exercises until after the games. The temporary halt to the annual Foal Eagle/Key Resolve US-South Korea joint military exercises allowed North and South Korea to develop a dialogue that the South hopes will ease the mounting tension in the region. On Tuesday, a day after Pyongyang warned against the resumption of the military drills, South Korea's defense ministry announced that the allies will still hold the Key Resolve and Ulchi Freedom Guardian exercises.
