US, South Korea to Announce Big North Korea Move

Newser — Neal Colgrass

Seems the US and South Korea really are on the verge of stopping "large-scale" military exercises, Reuters reports. Per Yonhap, a South Korean news agency, the two nations will announce the move this week with the stipulation that exercises with resume if Pyongyang fails to denuclearize as promised.

"It costs us a lot of money," Trump said Friday of the military drills, per the New York Times. "I save [a] lot of money. That's a good thing for us." Meanwhile, Yonhap says South Korean officials have asked North Korea to move its artillery 20 to 25 miles away from the military demarcation line between the two nations, but South Korea denied making the request.
