South Korea to begin annual “defensive” military exercises next week

Taeguk drills aimed at enhancing Seoul's "military readiness posture," JCS says

South Korea will next week begin two annual independent military exercises, the ROK's Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) announced on Friday.

The drills, known as the Taeguk Command Post Exercise (CPX), will be the first of their kind to take place since September's inter-Korean military agreement and will last from Monday until Friday.
