Korean troops start drills amid N. Korea standoff

The Ulchi-Freedom Guardian military exercises routinely spark condemnation from North Korea.

US President Donald Trump threatened North Korea with "fire and fury" after Pyongyang's latest missile tests and tweeted that "military solutions are now fully in place, locked and loaded, should North Korea act unwisely". North and South Korea are technically still at war after the 1950-53 Korean War ended with a truce, not a peace treaty.

The exercise is a computerized command-and-control simulation, said a spokeswoman for US Forces in Korea.

But, the KCNA report also stated that Mr Kim could revive plans to attack the U.S. if the military drill went ahead. During last year's drills, North Korea launched a ballistic missile from a submarine and put its military on the highest alert.

Around 17,500 United States troops will participate in the drills, a cutback from a year ago.

The U.N. Security Council unanimously imposed new sanctions on North Korea on August 5 that could slash the North's $3 billion annual export revenue by a third.

The U.S. and South Korea have begun annual anti-terror drills involving nearly 70,000 troops near the border with North Korea, antagonizing Kim Jong-un", who has threatened an "uncontrollable phase of nuclear war'. But he added that the diplomatic approach "has to be backed with military threat" if North Korea chooses to move forward with destabilizing actions.

Nuclear tensions are high again between North Korea and the United States - days after a much-welcomed cooling-off period - with renewed sabre-rattling calling out President Trump by name as the USA and South Korea launch joint military maneuvers today.

"In close collaboration with our allies, there are strong military consequences if the DPRK initiates hostilities", said Mattis.

South Korea's top military officer said Sunday that the current security situation on the peninsula was "more serious than at any other time" amid the North's growing nuclear and missile threats, and warned Pyongyang of merciless retaliation against any attack.

Manchester City vs Everton - A former Red Devil to spoil the party?
City won eight games out of nine with Jesus starting in 2016/17 compared to 25 out of 47 without him. Kyle Walker could make his 200th Premier League appearance.

With tensions high on the Korean peninsula, China - Pyongyang's main ally and trading partner - has urged the United States and South Korea to scrap the drills, as has Russian Federation.

But a week later, Trump shared a Tweet, writing: "Kim Jong Un of North Korea made a very wise and well reasoned decision".

IT IS an annual show of force and an intimidating illustration of the power of the partnership between South Korea and the US.

"The Ulchi exercise is a defensive drill conducted annually". Unlike the March exercise, UFG doesn't include live fire drills and happens concurrently with drills by local governments and civil servants to prepare South Korea's civil defenses.

Some experts have commented that the reduction in the number of United States servicemen could be another step towards de-escalating tensions on the Korean peninsula.
