Joint military exercises by US and South Korea
The United States (US) and South Korea have begun their annual joint military drills. The US-South Korea joint drills, which are known as ‘Key Resolve’ involve more than 13,000 troops and last two weeks. Another joint exercise, known as ‘Foal Eagle’, is happening since the beginning of March. Both exercises take place every year, usually prompting strong reactions from North Korea.
