Next Thursday, before Liberation Day, our troops will be training to defend Dokdo. It is expected to be Monday or Tuesday next week, with observations of the Navy's biggest ship, Dokdo, after the Blue House security chief's remarks yesterday that the army, navy and air force will all be involved.
Kim Tae-hoon, a defense expert reporter, said how big the training will be.
The government plans to conduct Dokdo defense training on the 12th or 13th if the weather is good.
The military is said to have planned the training mainly on the Navy 1st Fleet, the Maritime Police, and the Marine Corps.
But Jung Dae-yong, chief of security at the Cheong Wa Dae, suggested a large-scale training.
[Jeong-Yong Jung / National Security Officer of the Blue House (Yesterday, National Assembly Operation Committee): The Dokdo Guardian Training is not necessarily participating in the maritime police, but it is envisioned that all of the Navy and Air Force will participate.]
If you join the army, special forces will be able to join the Marine Corps to join Dokdo, and in this case, the landing forces will increase, and Navy's largest ship, Dokdo, may be deployed.
Dokdo is a precipitation that is expected to interfere with the Japanese Self-Defense Force's training interventions or even a sharp backlash by the Japanese right wing.
Air force refueling is being discussed in the airspace of Dokdo, but the air refueler is still in the electric powering phase, so the F-15K alone will be able to block airspace invasion.
[Chadong-gil / Dankook University Military Department Professor: Although it is a conflict with Japan, it is necessary to proceed with training to protect Dokdo's territorial sea and airspace in consideration of the recent invasion of Dokdo airspace by Russian reconnaissance aircraft.]
The military plans to finalize the strength of the troops and the size of the ship in the coming days by combining the aspects of the conflict between Korea and Japan and the response of the Korean government.
