The Republic of Korea has tentatively decided to conduct the upcoming military exercise with the United States as planned, albeit in a scaled-back manner due to the pandemic, Yonhap reported, citing sources.

ROK’s decision comes amid Democratic People’s Republic of Korea’s warning the maneuvers will cast a pall over inter-Korean relations

“We are working to stage the exercise as planned, which is a regular one and necessary for a combined readiness posture. We’ve maintained close consultations with the US over the issue,” a government source told Yonhap.
