SEOUL, June 19 (Yonhap) -- South Korea said Monday it will hold a combined live-fire naval exercise with the United States and Canada this week in its southern waters.
Hosted by South Korea's Maritime Task Flotilla Seven (MTF7), the three-day training exercise will be staged in waters near Jeju Island from Friday, according to the Navy.
It will involve five South Korean warships, including the Aegis cruiser DDG-992 Yulgok Yii, P-3C Orion maritime surveillance aircraft and Lynx multi-role helicopters as well as the USS Dewey (DDG-105), an Arleigh Burke-class guided missile destroyer from the U.S. Navy, and MH-60R helicopters.
