Naval SEALs from South Korea and the U.S. trained together at a special warfare training center on the U.S. west coast recently as joint exercises resume across the board.
According to the U.S. Indo-Pacific Command on Sunday, a U.S. West-Coast based SEAL team and the South Korean Naval Special Warfare Flotilla held combined training exercises for two weeks until Dec. 9 in California. They also took part in urban combat training exercises.
"We will continue realistic high-intensity training to prepare for any situation," a special forces officer here said.
The U.S. Navy said the exercise "sharpens our readiness and demonstrates our ironclad commitment to a free and open Indo-Pacific."
South Korea and the U.S. are stepping up drills after North Korea's escalating military provocations.
