South Korea and the United States are expected to announce the suspension of “large-scale” military drills this week, with the provision that they would restart if North Korea failed to keep its promise to denuclearize, news agency Yonhap said on Sunday.


The suspension follows President Donald Trump's surprise pledge to end “war games” after his summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore last week. 

The Korean Peninsula is one of the most heavily militarized regions in the world, and below Newsweek takes a look at the strength of the forces deployed there. 

One means of assessing the strength of the respective militaries is to compare the number of people in the armed forces of each country, and the number of the armaments they possess.
