Seoul, June 14 (QNA) - South Korea, the United States and Japan will conduct joint exercises to detect and track ballistic missiles in the waters off Hawaii in mid-July.
South Korean Ministry of Defense said that the conduct of these maneuvers came in implementation of the agreement reached between the defense ministers of the three countries, at their last meeting, which was held on the sidelines of the Asian Security Summit in Singapore, according to the Korean Broadcasting System (KBS).
The three countries and Australia will hold "Pacific Dragon" exercises on July 14 near Hawaii. These exercises focus on improving tactical and technical coordination between the participating countries, including the detection, tracking and reporting of ballistic targets.
It is worth noting that North Korea fired several artillery shells last Sunday, a week after it launched eight short-range ballistic missiles towards the East Sea. (QNA)
