Joint U.S.-ROK military drills to resume on April 1

All networks reported at noon that the South Korean Defense Ministry announced today that the joint military drills between the U.S. and South Korea, which had been suspended during the PyeongChang Olympics and Paralympics, will resume on April 1. Fuji TV reported that the “Foal Eagle” field exercise will be held for about four weeks, about one month shorter than normal, and the “Key Resolve” exercise will be held for two weeks. The network said that according to the South Korean media, neither a U.S. nuclear aircraft carrier nor B-1B bombers will participate, speculating that the two nations chose to avoid “irritating” North Korea which had been opposed to the participation of the flattop and bomber.
