The United States and South Korea said they will postpone upcoming military drills in an effort to bolster a stalled peace push with North Korea.

The drills, known as the Combined Flying Training Event, would have simulated air combat scenarios and involved an undisclosed number of warplanes from both the United States and South Korea.

US Defense Secretary Mark Esper said the US and South Korean militaries would remain at a high state of readiness despite the move, and denied that the decision to postpone the drills was a concession to North Korea.
