South Korea, U.S. to suspend planning for August joint military drills: MND

Ulchi Freedom Guardian exercise will no longer go ahead, ROK defense ministry says

The U.S. and South Korea have agreed to suspend the annual Ulchi Freedom Guardian (UFG) joint military drills, the ROK Ministry of National Defence (MND) said on Tuesday.

The drills were set to take place in August, though U.S. President Donald Trump following a summit with Kim Jong Un last week said they would be halted while talks with the North were ongoing.
