Seoul: 1 April, we begin a purely defensive joint exercises with the United States

29
TV channel ABC reports that Washington and Seoul have agreed to resume joint military exercises on the Korean Peninsula in the near future. According to the channel, which refers to the command of the US and South Korean forces, joint military maneuvers will begin on April 1. Recall that the initial plans of Washington and Seoul were adjusted in the direction of transferring military maneuvers in connection with the Olympics and the Paralympic Games in Pyeongchang.


Seoul: 1 April, we begin a purely defensive joint exercises with the United States


The teachings, starting 1 April, promise to be one of the most ambitious in recent times. The Ministers of Defense of the United States and the Republic of Korea, James Mattis and Son Yoon Mu, signed documents stating that the total number of military contingent that will be involved in the maneuvers will exceed 300 thousand people.

It is noteworthy that large-scale military maneuvers will take place against the background of a significant warming of relations between Pyongyang and Seoul. Recall that the head of the DPRK, Kim Jong-un, previously instructed the country's foreign ministry to start preparations for its possible meeting with the president of Kazakhstan.

Now, a document has come from Seoul to Pyongyang, which states that joint exercises with the United States are of a “purely defensive nature”.
In the "purely defensive" exercises will be involved, in particular, the US aircraft carrier group, as well as submarines. From the side of Kazakhstan - almost all types and types of troops.

          The United States is afraid of this and will never allow their unification.

        Kim Jong-un may not understand the April Fool’s trick with the “teachings” and then the entire Korean Peninsula and Japan will go into the toilet along with US bases.

        Rather, the Chinese will be there before, if they have not already occupied their entire territory with quiet glanders, just as they quietly climb into our Far Eastern region ..

    The exercises starting on April 1 promise to be one of the largest ever
    They are afraid of the DPRK, they want negotiations, but they continue to escalate the situation under the leadership of the United States. They do not want to live peacefully, and the flag is in their hands. Who will restore Seoul later?

      Unfortunately, puppet rulers are bestowed on every US sub-mattress country. Now Eun is not only and not so much in power as the public opinion of the people of the South Caucasus, thereby stimulating sympathy for the idea of ​​unification in the authorities of the South Caucasus. The US is creating the conditions for new provocations to prevent rapprochement. Much depends on how Pyongyang will respond to these provocations. Recently, Eun began to behave more calmly, as confident in his abilities. If he also calmly responds to the exercises, limiting himself to propaganda against US influence in Seoul, then he will definitely win more than a show of strength. We will see. It seems to me that the United States began to lose its position in South Korea. And this is not thanks to Eun, but thanks to his own mediocre foreign policy.

        Disarm Comrade Kim, want everyone who is there!
        The unification of the two Koreas, a terrible dream for the neighbors!

          Victor, I praise! hi
          I’ll clarify that this is not a bad dream for all neighbors. Russia and, above all, China, support this rapprochement, because this is a guaranteed way to get rid of the conflict point near by and drive out the mattress warriors from Korea. There are a lot of hitrovans there, it’s even difficult to measure which of them and what is more ... lol

            Hi Alexey soldier
            I would not guarantee for anyone. Different opinions met. It seems to us and China that a hot conflict is not needed, it seems mortally dangerous for other neighbors, it’s understandable.
            To say that one Baba Yaga is against, prematurely, one must look, try to understand the essence of events. Of course, if interested, the topic is deep. Shaw east, shaw indochina is a dark and peculiar thing.
            In short, what I believe more, I express that point of view! Not a Japanese Sinologist how to bask!

    I can hardly imagine an American submarine launching Tomahawk defensive weapons in the direction of North Korea ...
    then attack aircraft with defensive bombs and missiles flying from the decks of American aircraft carriers directed against Pyongyang ... belay

    In this lie, the most ridiculous phrase of the South Koreans is "we agreed" wassat ! And the truth is that the United States decided on a one-on-one basis, there is not enough courage? When is the Yankees allowed one of their slaves to "negotiate" with themselves ???

      Count on these slaves to work with us, we have half the region under 40, go to work ... They pay for rough work from 5 thousand per shift .. are these South Korean slaves .. or are we?
      Remember the Sovetsky - we are not slaves, slaves to him? Accent is only then forever confused ..

        They have a very separate economy and politics, in the sense that they have their own economy, and all politics, both external and internal, belongs entirely to the United States, therefore the two Koreas cannot reconcile, therefore the South Koreans "decide" to conduct those the same teachings, not even knowing the texts of the decisions made! As for the economy, there in Samsung I have a couple of familiar programmers from the Rostov region, there is enough work, they pay well. Simply, South Koreans are reluctant to let strangers into their economies, and, unlike politics, they make decisions themselves.
