The United States and South Korea will begin small-scale military drills on Monday. The drills were delayed during talks with North Korea. During talks, Pyongyang threatened to restart its nuclear program unless international pressure eases. US President Donald Trump promised to end joint U.S.-South Korea military exercises in June. About 500 American and South Korean marines will participate in the upcoming drills. South Korea’s defense minister said the countries will decide by December on joint military exercises for 2019. North Korea warned Friday that it could restart development of its nuclear program if the US does not ease its “maximum pressure” and sanctions. “The improvement of relations and sanctions are incompatible. The U.S. thinks that its oft-repeated ‘sanctions and pressure’ lead to ‘denuclearization.’ We cannot help laughing at such a foolish idea.” North Korea foreign ministry official
