South Korean military, citing bad weather, postpones planned maritime drills
Defense ministry dismisses local reports that Seoul may be "tiptoeing" around Pyongyang by rescheduling exercises

South Korea's defense ministry on Monday confirmed reports that the country's military had decided to postpone a round of planned maritime live-fire drills due to adverse weather conditions.

Local media outlets on Sunday reported that the exercises -- set to involve the ROK Army, Navy, and Air Force and due to take place on Tuesday on the Uljin coast in North Gyeongsang Province -- had been temporarily called off.
