South Korea, U.S., Japan kick off two-day missile tracking drill - South Korea military

SEOUL (Reuters) - South Korea, the United States and Japan started a two-day missile tracking drill on Tuesday, South Korea’s military said, in preparation for any missile or nuclear threats from North Korea.

The exercises will be held in waters off the coasts of South Korea and Japan, the South Korean military said in a statement.

The drills have been taking place every few months following an agreement made during a Security Consultative Meeting between South Korea and the United States last year.
