On Monday, the United States and South Korea initiated collaborative air drills, set to continue until Friday. During this period, the two allies will jointly deploy 130 fighter jets in the vicinity of the Korean peninsula, a move that has sparked dissatisfaction in North Korea.
These annual exercises, known as Vigilant Defense, are designed to enhance coordination in executing large-scale air missions between the respective armed forces. This includes the practice of both offensive and defensive aerial operations.
Notably, North Korea has recently increased its cooperation with Russia, with the United States alleging that Pyongyang is supplying Moscow with weapons for the conflict in Ukraine. The nature of what North Korean leader Kim Jong-un receives in return for this cooperation remains a matter of speculation.
North Korean Foreign Minister Choe Son Hui expressed on Saturday that it is Pyongyang’s unwavering intention to further strengthen its ties with Russia.
