ROK, U.S. Marines to hold 24 KMEP joint military exercises next year: Seoul

Drills have been on hold since June's Singapore summit

The Republic of Korea Marine Corps (ROKMC) on Friday said it plans to conduct the joint ROK-U.S. Korean Marine Exchange Program (KMEP) military drills 24 times next year.

The exercises have been on hold since June, following the decision by the allies to suspend joint military drills following the U.S.-DPRK summit in Singapore.
