SEOUL, March 13. /TASS/. US and South Korea will wrap up joint military exercise today, a spokesman for South Korea’s Defense Ministry said on Friday.
The Key Resolve drills, which started on March 2 and involved 10,000 South Korean and 8,600 US troops, prompted sharp critique and threats from North Korea.
"During maneuvers, with the help of computer modeling, different versions of North’s attack on the South were considered, along with cooperation between allies when retorting a nuclear or missile threat from the North. It allowed the troops to get the experience very close to real-life practice," South Korea’s Defense Ministry said. Around 30 scenarios of different provocations from North Korea were prepared for the military exercise.
Meanwhile, large-scale annual maneuvers Foal Eagle will continue in South Korea until March 24. Around 200,000 South Korean and 3,700 US troops are involved in the drills. Australia, UK, Denmark, Canada and France also participate in the exercise.
The military maneuvers increased tensions on the Korean Peninsula, Yonhap news agency said. On March 2, the first day of joint US-South Korean drills, North Korea launched two short-range ballistic missiles from its west coast to the Sea of Japan.
