Moon rejects Abe’s recommendation to resume U.S.-ROK military drills

All national dailies wrote on Sunday that it has learned from ROK government sources on Saturday that South Korean President Moon rejected a proposal made by Prime Minister Abe during their talks in PyeongChang on Friday for South Korea to swiftly resume its joint military drills with the United States that have been suspended until the Olympics and Paralympics end in mid-March. Abe reportedly told Moon that it is important to conduct the drills as planned, but the ROK leader reportedly said in reply that he does not want Abe to directly take up the issue because it is a matter of national sovereignty and an internal affair.
