He has reminded that Russia has many times talked about necessity of restraint, especially when it comes to military maneuvers of the United States and South Korea, TASS informs.

The day before, South Korean President Moon Jae-in proposed to shift military maneuvers. In his opinion, this would decrease tension before the Olympic Games. Moon Jae-in has also assured that guests and participants of the competitions should not worry about their security.

The annual Foal Eagle and Key Resolve military maneuvers with participation of all kinds of troops between the two countries are conducted at the end of winter. They were scheduled to coincide with dates of Olympics and Paralympics this year.

North Korea interprets American-South Korean exercises as a repetition of intrusion into North Korean territory and takes military counter measures. South Korean authorities are worried that actions of PhenYang will have negative impact on the sports activities.
