Military Review

Tillerson is not aware of plans to transfer joint exercises with South Korea.

26
Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said yesterday that he was unaware of the Pentagon’s intentions to change the schedule of joint exercises with the Republic of Korea for the period of the Olympic Games 2018 of the year to be held there in Phyonchang from 9 to 25 in February, reports TASS.




I am not aware of any plans to stop long-established and planned regular military exercises with our partners in South Korea or in Japan,
Tillerson said in Ottawa at a joint press conference with Canadian Foreign Minister Christie Freeland.

He added that military exercises are announced in advance, and they have been held for many years.

Earlier, the President of the Republic of Korea, Moon Jae Ying, said that he had offered Washington to postpone the holding of joint maneuvers in order to reduce tensions before the Olympics.

As South Korean media reported, Seoul and Washington are discussing the possibility of postponing the annual Foal Eagle maneuvers to a later date with the participation of all the armed forces, as well as the Key Resolve command and staff exercises. They are usually held in February-March, which this time coincides with the dates of the Olympic and Paralympic Games.

In recent years, thousands of troops have participated in the Foal Eagle exercise from 200 to 300, and American strategic weapons are also involved in them.

              You need to shoot if they start. Better to put a few thousand people than the third time in a hundred years to plunge the country into chaos. If the ruler does not understand such simple things, then he has no place at the helm. Deng Xiaoping chose to roll out the Tiananmen tanks in order to avoid monstrous bloodshed in the future.

                Well, Deng Xiaoping was found in China, and in our country in the USSR then only the country labeled Judas was sold in bulk and retail. yes

                  The hunchback deserves only one thing - drowning in a tub with shit! You should not even bury this one on Russian soil, otherwise his grave will be a constant target of vandals.

        If the athletes do not send their athletes, then they may well play their own game under this mute (Bear). And if they send it, then they will be afraid.

      The Olympics in its current form has ceased to be of interest due to a violation of the basic principle, none of the athletes should be prosecuted at the OLYMPIAD for any reason ... athletes are now suspended on the basis of suspicion and some kind of scratches in some test tubes ...
      disqualify athletes with disabilities ... suspend national teams of entire countries on the basis of false and unproven accusations ... sheer disgrace.
      Tillerson against this background is just a businessman and wants to score peacemaker points by driving such statements into the media ... there is nothing new here.

      Unfortunately, this has been happening for more than a decade, but there has never been such a thing as the last three years - politicians destroyed the Olympic movement.

        ... that means we need to destroy this system together with politicians ... the latest news is - the Federation has allowed our bobsledders to join the Olympics, but the IOC will file a lawsuit against the Federation, that’s such trouble, apparently the dough has been dumped unreasonably ...

    Think of some kind of Olympics. In 2008, they pushed Saakashvili to launch an invasion exactly on the opening day of the Olympics, so this is not so important for the Americans. But the statements of the American side about the possible non-participation in the Olympics may have some basis.

    It is enough to see on the map on the left. And also to Poland with the Baltic states.
