The United States and South Korea are conducting the largest-ever air exercises

The Ministry of Defense of the Republic of Korea, together with the United States, continues to conduct military exercises on the territory of the Korean Peninsula, reports the Oman Daily Observer, citing AFP. In addition to the main phase of the exercise, it was also decided to arrange the largest military aerial exercise in the history. They will pass, despite the continuously growing tensions of both countries with the DPRK, which opposes these tests. The tests conducted under the name Max Thunder involved 103 aircraft and 1.400 soldiers.

The exercises are focused on a "practical program of action", which includes practicing strikes against the alleged enemy, as well as operations to support troops stationed in enemy territory.

Joint exercises, according to the ministry, will further strengthen the military positions of both sides and provide an opportunity to produce a fitting rebuff in the event of a military conflict on the Korean Peninsula.

In turn, the DPRK authorities still do not retreat from their positions and consider holding these exercises to be nothing more than an “invasion attempt” into their country. As a response, Pyongyang repeatedly conducted a series of missile and projectile launches, which caused discontent of Japan and South Korea and their allies.
