U.S. says joint South Korea war games not on the negotiating tableBy Michael Martina and Christine Kim BEIJING/SEOUL (Reuters) – The United States and South Korea will go ahead with joint military drills next week, the top U.S. military official said on Thursday, resisting pressure from North Korea and its ally China to halt the contentious exercises. North Korea’s rapid progress in developing nuclear weapons and missiles capable of reaching the U.S. mainland has fueled a rise in tensions in recent months. Pyongyang threatened last week to fire missiles towards the U.S. Pacific territory of Guam and U.S. President Donald Trump warned soon after that North Korea would face “fire and fury” if it threatened the United States.
