South Korean authorities did not accept US and Japanese proposal to conduct joint military exercises aimed at countering North Korea’s submarines, Sputnik reported.

The drills were supposed to be conducted on the basis of the General Security of Military Information Agreement (GSOMIA) signed by Tokyo and Seoul on November 23, 2016 to create the framework for both protection and sharing of secret military information.

However, Seoul said that the country is not ready to conduct such exercises because of the scandal connected with an impeachment of the South Korean president Park Geun-hye. It was she who supported the idea of an exchange of secret information between the countries, but at the moment all her initiatives are perceived with skepticism.
