USA–Seoul Army – level 3

14-08-2019 07:00

Despite North Korea’s criticism, the USA and South Korea are planning to hold their yearly joint military exercises.

The news comes soon after North Korea test-fired multiple weapons, including two new short-range ballistic missiles toward the Sea of Japan as a warning to the South Korean military. Pyongyang also said that the drill violated Trump’s promises which he made last year, and North Korea threatened to go on with its nuclear and missile tests.

Last year, the USA said that it would stop some of the exercises with South Korea as a show of goodwill during talks for denuclearization. Earlier this year, the USA and South Korea said that they would not hold their large exercises which normally happen every year, but they would carry out a few smaller operations instead.

Difficult words: drill (a training), violate (break), denuclearization (getting rid of nuclear weapons).
