Pentagon has reiterated that the upcoming combined training events with South Korea are a "bilateral decision," and any decisions will be a "mutual agreement."
According to the VOA on Saturday, the U.S. Defense Department said all South Korea-U.S. training would respect the Korean government and COVID-19 guidelines.
On Friday, defense chiefs of Seoul and Washington held a phoner and discussed security issues surrounding the Korean Peninsula.
There could also have been discussions regarding the annual summertime military drills slated for August.
Following the recent restoration of inter-Korean communication lines, Seoul's unification minister argued the exercise should be postponed as North Korea has been critical of the drills.
