WASHINGTON, April 16 (Yonhap) -- South Korea and the United States agreed to hone their combined defense capabilities through more joint drills, as North Korea intensifies nuclear and missile threats, the allies said Wednesday after bilateral military talks here.
At the two-day Korea-U.S. Integrated Defense Dialogue (KIDD), the two countries shared the view that North Korea's recent provocations undermine stability of the peninsula and the region, they said in a joint statement.
