  • PressTV Published on May 16, 2018
    South Korea and the United States will press ahead with their joint drills as planned despite North Korea urging them not to do so. The South Korean Defense Ministry says Washington and Seoul have agreed, in an emergency meeting, on upholding the exercises. The ministry has defended the plan, saying the drills are QUOTE not an implementation of an operational plan or an attack maneuver. North Korea announced the suspension of high-level talks with the South, saying the drills are a provocation and a rehearsal for invasion. Pyongyang also threatened to scrap a scheduled summit between its leader, Kim Jong-un, and U-S President, Donald Trump. It says Washington plans to impose the destiny of Libya or Iraq on the North.
