US, South Korea Kick Off Joint Military Exercises after Hiatus


The U.S. and South Korea have resumed joint military exercises after halting the drills during the 2018 Winter Olympic Games.

Yonhap News Agency reported local time Sunday that field exercises had kicked off. Nearly 12,000 U.S. troops will join around 300,000 South Korean soldiers for the joint exercises, the largest annual exercises between the two nations.

The duration of the operation, dubbed Foal Eagle, was shortened to a month, according to the report, due to the presence of the Olympics last month.
