Yonhap News Agency on December 31st, it is reported that the military of South Korea and the United States is currently negotiating a joint military exercise plan to be implemented early next year.
According to the report, South Korea and the United States usually hold large-scale joint performances in March-April and August every year.
Affected by the epidemic, the joint command post exercise originally scheduled for March-April this year has been postponed indefinitely, and the scale of the joint exercise in August has also been reduced.
It has been observed that if the spread of the epidemic is not effectively contained, the scale of joint exercises at the beginning of next year will also be forced to shrink, and the future assessment of the Joint Command’s “complete operational capability” (FOC) may continue to be affected.
It is reported that the South Korean Joint Staff Headquarters is communicating closely with the South Korean-American Joint Military Command and the United Nations Command on the joint exercise plan under next year’s epidemic.
The two countries also plan to discuss the adjustment of the joint performance in the light of the situation of North Korea after President-elect Biden takes office in January next year.
