South Korea asked the United States to postpone military exercises for the Olympics

53
South Korea asked the United States to postpone military exercises for the period of the Winter Olympic Games to reduce the likelihood of provocative actions by the DPRK, the Financial Times reported, citing sources.


According to the interlocutors of the publication, Seoul wants to postpone the traditional spring exercises with the United States until the end of the Paralympic Games, which will close on March 18. The United States is likely to agree to this request, two sources point out.

South Korea asked the United States to postpone military exercises for the Olympics


In addition to fears of provocations from the DPRK, South Korea is concerned that a possible worsening of the situation on the Korean Peninsula will have a negative impact on the demand for tickets to the Olympics and the Paralympics.

The Ministry of Defense of South Korea said that the decision on the exercises has not yet been made. The Pentagon and the US National Security Council declined to comment on the situation. Representative of the command of the US Armed Forces in the Pacific, Dave Benham, said that the United States and South Korea continue to "discuss the prospects of the Key Resolve and Foal Eagle exercises."

In 2017, the United States and South Korea launched the Foal Eagle and Key Resolve joint annual military exercises in early March, which lasted two months.

The Winter Olympic Games will be held in the South Korean city of Pkhenchkhan from 9 to 25 in February, the Paralympic Games from 9 to 18 in March.

      Three months is not a deadline, the States will not want to lose investment in the next Olympic Games, the "party of war" will then catch up with its own.

        There was GDP. This is the main thing. Note that the 58th order was received only when the GDP flew to Moscow and kicked Dima’s ass.

    to reduce the likelihood of provocative actions by the DPRK

    It seems that a mistake has crept in: it would be correct not "from the DPRK", but "to the DPRK"

    What is it all of a sudden? Just yesterday, the United States actively waved provoking the DPRK, and now suddenly realized that with such a strain, the Olympics could fail? Previously, you had to think, and not go on about the Americans.

          South Korea is a successful state with a high standard of living. Successfully competes with world leading manufacturers in almost all areas of production.
          The highest level of freedom.
          North Korea is a totalitarian state with a Swiss-educated leader, his retinue on Mercedes and a poor, powerless people.
          Doesn’t produce anything significant.
          The question is - what is such sovereignty worth and who apart from Un and Co. needs it?

            The sovereignty of the state is the ability to independently defend its territory and have equal weight in international politics. Therefore, South Korea is an economically developed state, but conditionally sovereign, since it cannot independently protect itself from the DPRK, or Japan, or China.
            Therefore, she is forced to live under the roof of the United States. Hope so clear ?! hi

          You are right in everything, but I am not campaigning for submission to the interests of the United States. And in Iraq, Syria and Afghanistan, nothing worthwhile has ever been produced under any authority.

    Kill me, but the story of the dismissal of our team from the Olympics and the apologies of Zhukov does not bother me. The decision to appear under a neutral flag seems to me forcedly correct. But this is "the best of the worst" There is understatement on our part - this is bad - because it gives free rein to a flight of fancy. This story seems to me. It happened as a result of the manifestation not of evil will, but of the mixture of sneakiness, sloppiness and incompetence inherent in some of our officials. If anyone remembers at the beginning of the Olympics, our affairs did not work out very well. GDP says, let’s say Mutko, “something doesn’t stick with us.” Mutko comes to Rodchenkov. “Listen, the chief is dissatisfied, I heard you have some kind of duchess, give it a try. I drank it, I felt a surge of energy and says“ what a dope, it's just a good vermouth, I didn’t feel any dope. ”Well, the trigger worked ...

      This story happened when the CPSU nomenclature started to become owners, because party regalia, nishtyaki and power were not inherited. As a result of the liberal coup d'etat, organized by humpbacked trash and cattle fuck, the most low-grade, unprincipled thieves who popped up all the "tasty" posts surfaced upstairs. And since these newly-minted liberalists did not have an elementary ability to use the brain, not to mention knowledge and experience - we have what we have - the most merciless rabble in power in Russia turned out to be in quality, which is below the level of the baseboard. Monstrous incompetence, greed, irresponsibility and impunity - this is a portrait of a typical Russian official of the past 25 years.
