ROK military to conduct more drills to prepare for North Korean nuclear threats

Computer-simulated Taeguk exercises will start Monday following unprecedented week of DPRK missile launches

The South Korean military will hold computer-simulated drills next week to bolster capabilities against North Korean threats, Seoul’s Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) announced on Friday, the latest in a series of unilateral and joint military exercises on the peninsula that have drawn Pyongyang’s ire.

The JCS announced that the Taeguk Exercises will start next Monday after a historic week of North Korean missile launches, including at least 23 fired in a single day on Wednesday.
