U.S., ROK to put off joint air training

All national dailies reported today that following his meeting with South Korean Defense Minister Jeong in Bangkok on Sunday, Secretary of Defense Esper told the press that bilateral air drills slated for later this month will be postponed as “an act of goodwill to contribute to an environment conducive to diplomacy and the advancement of peace” on the Korean Peninsula. The papers speculated that the postponement was intended to prevent derailing the denuclearization talks with North Korea. The Secretary reportedly urged the Kim regime to return to the negotiating table without preconditions and respond to the U.S. offer by demonstrating the “same goodwill,” such as refraining from missile launches.
