Japan, U.S., ROK begin military training

NHK reported at 3 p.m. that South Korea’s Ministry of National Defense announced that Japan, the U.S., and South Korea began a two-day training drill today based on the scenario of North Korea launching a ballistic missile in order to demonstrate strengthened trilateral cooperation in increasing pressure on the North. According to the network, MSDF Aegis ships and U.S. and ROK naval forces deployed in waters near Japan and South Korea will detect and track a mock missile and share information on its trajectory. The network said such training was conducted for the first time last June and this is the fourth time for it to be held. NHK said South Korea has been playing up its stance of strengthening  ties with Japan and the U.S. to increase pressure on the DPRK through large-scale exercises by the U.S. and South Korean air forces this month and extending the GSOMIA with Japan.
