South Korea and U.S. to hold new drill replacing large-scale exercises

South Korea’s joint Chiefs of Staff and South Korea-United States Combined Forces Command said that the two countries will conduct a new military exercise from March 4 to 12.The exercise, “Dong Maeng”, which means “alliance” in English, has been modified from the previously held spring exercises Key Resolve and Foal Eagle and will focus on strategic, operational, and tactical aspects of general military operations on the Korean Peninsula.

The Foal Eagle field exercise, which usually involves thousands of combined ground, air, naval and special operations troops, takes place every spring. Key Resolve is a computer-simulated exercise.

The United States and South Korea have suspended a number of military exercises since the first summit last year between North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and U.S. President Donald Trump to encourage talks with North Korea.
