The United States does not intend to abandon the exercises on the Korean Peninsula

Washington considers unacceptable the idea of ​​refusing to conduct joint exercises with South Korea in exchange for the termination of the DPRK missile and nuclear tests, reports Interfax-AVN Statement by State Department spokesman Heather Neuert.

The United States does not intend to abandon the exercises on the Korean Peninsula


There is no equivalence between what the DPRK did - testing ballistic missiles in July, as well as nuclear testing, and what the US and South Korea are doing - completely legitimate joint military exercises,
Neuert said, answering the question whether the US is going to change its position on this issue.

She recalled that the joint exercises of the United States and South Korea have been held for a long time - from 1953 of the year, "when the agreement on joint defense of the two countries was signed."

We will continue to do this, and this is not something that needs to be changed ... Because what we are doing with South Korea is not equivalent to what the DPRK is doing. And the whole world recognizes this,
added the representative of the State Department.

    Well provocation is sacred for mattresses. It’s all the same to them a little bit that they will not be bombed, but south Korea.

            Pasha, welcome! You raised a direct philosophical question. It’s possible to joke, but I’ll say it seriously - in my opinion, state democracy is much worse. A fig of people does not kill and does not destroy the state.

              I hold the same opinion. Where mattress democracy is always chaos, war and bloodshed are inevitable. Question: what wasabi is this for ???

        Tatyana, my respect! hi love Actually, did someone expect another solution from the USA? Another thing is surprising:
        There is no equivalence between what the DPRK did - ballistic missile tests in July, and also - nuclear tests, and what the United States and South Korea do - completely legitimate joint military exercises

        Joint exercises are more dangerous than trials - is that how her words can be understood? wink

      No, no .. This time, apparently, the Americans themselves can fly in too ... No wonder Trump was so furious ...

    Right now, they’ll sing a thread for themselves, the plane will fall, or a couple of soldiers in the jungle will disappear, and then they will blame the President of Russia. And China and Iran. A win-win. Immediately the incident in the Gulf of Tonkin is also remembered by the Polish radio station

      Good question
      I see two options :.
      1- expressed concern
      2- through the words of the Minister of Defense, she would say that they say that we want to train on our territory as well.

    Which is to be expected. The escalation of the situation in the APR by the Americans will not stop.

    The representative of the State Department is absolutely right - there is no equivalence.
    Therefore, the United States conducts exercises on the Korean Peninsula, while the DPRK conducts exercises on the island of Guam and then there will be no equivalence, but it’s better anyway.

    With Trump and Eun, everything is clear. The position of the South Koreans is not clear - in fact, unlike stupid and stubborn Americans, they perfectly understand that they are trades pawns in this game. And that in the case of a cheerful mess, their country together with the North will turn into a radioactive glazed desert. And about a nation like the Koreans will have to forget. At least in order to protect themselves from total destruction they could influence (ask, demand) from the mattresses to suspend the exercises. Is America’s influence on their Mosque turned it into a soft substance, following the example of stupid Americans?
