Joint U.S.-South Korea military exercises end at 6:19 p.m. on August 28 without any noticeable moves on North Korea
A joint military exercise between the U.S. and South Korean forces on the korean Peninsula has ended its 11-day schedule on August 28. North Korea had previously condemned joint military exercises between the United States and South Korea, but there was no noticeable move during the exercise.
The U.S. and South Korean forces held a joint military exercise on the Korean Peninsula from the 18th of this month, and according to officials of the South Korean military, the schedule of 28 days and 11 days was completed.
This exercise was mainly a diagram exercise using a computer, and the start was delayed by two days because of the infection of the new coronavirus just before, and the scale was greatly reduced compared to the usual year because it was difficult for soldiers from the mainland of the United States to participate due to the influence of the virus.
In the event of an event on the Korean Peninsula, Moon Jae-in’s government was aiming to transfer the command of the South Korean military currently held by the U.S. military to the South Korean side at an early stage, and the exercise was scheduled to confirm the capabilities of the South Korean military.
However, South Korea’s news agency, Union News, pointed out that only a part of the verification work was possible compared to the original plan because the exercises were reduced, and some said that it would be difficult to achieve during the Moon administration’s term.
On the other hand, North Korea has repeatedly condemned joint military exercises between the United States and South Korea, but during this exercise, there has been no noticeable opposition, and some people think that it is focusing on antivirus and heavy rain recovery work.
