North Korea News Alert

US military forces to end suspension of military drills with South Korean army amid tensions with North Korean regime

TIMEFRAME expected from 8/29/2018, 12:00 AM until 8/29/2018, 11:59 PM (UTC). COUNTRY/REGION North Korea

Event

On August 28, the US administration declared that US military forces will end the suspension of military drills with the South Korean army. Washington did not give any indication when the exercises with allied forces in Northeast Asia - which have always angered North Korea in the past - would resume.

Context

Following the US President D. Trump's June meeting with the North Korean leader Kim Jong-un in Singapore, the United States said it would suspend military exercises with South Korea. Hence, the large-scale Ulchi Freedom Guardian exercises usually planned for August did not take place.

Advice

As a reminder, Western governments advise their citizens against all but essential travel to North Korea (DPRK). Individuals heading to North Korea are advised to follow the advice of their tour group and to adhere to any instructions from local authorities.
