S. Korea holds war games to defend against Japan

S. Korea holds war games to defend against JapanSouth Korea on Monday began two days of war games to practise defending the disputed Dokdo islands off its east coast — against an unlikely attack by Japan. The drills come just days after President Donald Trump announced the suspension of long-running US joint exercises with South Korea — aimed at deterring North Korea — calling them expensive and “provocative”. The two-day exercise — tiny compared with the suspended US-South Korea war games — will involve six warships and seven aircraft and had begun, Seoul’s defence ministry said.
