WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The United States does not plan to make changes to an upcoming military drill with South Korea, a senior U.S. defence official said on Wednesday, despite a series of recent North Korean missile launches intended to pressure Seoul and Washington to stop joint exercises.

“No adjustment or change in plans that we’re aware of or are planning,” the U.S. official, speaking on the condition of anonymity, said.
