Ace News Services

#AceNewsReport – SOUTH KOREA:Aug.18: Tens of thousands of South Korean and US troops kicked off a large-scale military drill on Monday.

The maneuvers are simulating an all-out attack by North Korea, which has condemned the joint drill as a “declaration of war,” AFP said. The annual Ulchi Freedom exercise, which will run through August 28, involves 50,000 Korean and 30,000 US soldiers, although it is largely computer-simulated.

Pyongyang views Ulchi Freedom, along with other South Korea-US drills, as provocative and has threatened the “strongest military counter-action” should this exercise go ahead.
