Southforward.com – South Korea immediately reacted about the planned dismissal of joint exercises between the US military and South Korea.
Quoted by Reuters on Tuesday (12/06/2018), South Korea through the official statement of Blue House plans to confirm this with its ally countries, USA.
“At this point, we need to find out the exact meaning or intention of President Trump’s statement,” Blue House said.
As reported earlier, US President Donald Trump said he would stop US war games with South Korea in the near future.
Trump thinks it is inappropriate if they keep doing it while the three countries are both willing to make peace and the practice will cost big.
Trump said this on the sidelines of his meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un today in Singapore.
This is also in line with questions from the Pentagon that plans to withdraw its troops from the Korean Peninsula.
