SEOUL, January 12. /TASS/. South Korea and the United States will carry out a two-day joint naval drill on South Korea's east coast starting Tuesday, South Korea's Yonhap news agency said on Monday.
The joint exercise will involve two US Aegis destroyers, including the 9,200-ton USS Mustin (DDG 89), which arrived at the port city of Donghae on Sunday, and Seoul's 3,200-ton Aegis destroyer called Gwanggaeto the Great-class destroyer, a submarine and two Lynx helicopters, the agency said, citing an anonymous South Korean naval officer.
The planned drills come amid simmering tensions on the Korean Peninsula after the US rejected an offer from North Korea last week that it would halt its nuclear test should Seoul and Washington temporarily shelve their plan for joint military exercises this year, the agency added.
