To demonstrate the ability of the combined US-ROK force to respond quickly to crisis events on the Korean Peninsula, U.S. Forces Korea and the Republic of Korea militaries conducted a combined live-fire exercise, the United States Forces Korea (USFK) said on June 6.
This exercise utilized one U.S. Army missile and seven ROK Army missiles. The missiles were fired from the northeast of South Korea into the East Sea following appropriate notifications for air and maritime safety.
The ROK-U.S. Alliance remains committed to peace and prosperity on the Korean Peninsula and throughout the Indo-Pacific. The U.S. commitment to the defense of the ROK remains ironclad, a spokesman of the USFK said.
