It is known that the South Korean, US, and Japanese naval forces plan to conduct joint exercises in the East Sea tomorrow.

Ahn Gyu-baek, a member of the National Assembly's National Defense Committee, said on SNS, "After the ROK-U.S. combined maritime exercise is over, we will conduct anti-submarine exercises in the East Sea with the Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force."

The training location is said to be outside the ROK operational zone on the high seas.

Currently, the ROK and U.S. naval forces are conducting joint maritime exercises in the East Sea with the participation of more than 20 ships and 110 aircraft, including the US nuclear-powered carrier, the Reagan, nuclear-powered submarines, and Aegis destroyers.

An additional Japanese Maritime Self-Defense Force ship will join this force, and it is expected that the training will be to detect and track a North Korean submarine equipped with a submarine-launched missile.

With a series of joint exercises in mind, North Korea again launched a missile provocation.

South Korean military authorities said that North Korea fired two short-range ballistic missiles from 6:10 p.m. to 20 p.m. yesterday from the Sunan area of ​​Pyongyang.

The remote location is the East Sea, where South Korea-US-Japan exercises are scheduled. 

It has been three days since the launch of a short-range ballistic missile in the Taecheon area of ​​Pyeongbuk on the 25th. 

While the National Security Council was convened, the ROK military said that it was maintaining a readiness posture under the cooperation of South Korea and the United States.
