U.S. Sen. Roger Wicker speaks in Southaven

U.S. Sen. Roger Wicker, R-Mississippi, told a Southaven audience Thursday that joint military exercises between Japan, the U.S., South Korea and other Allies are still scheduled despite a veiled threat from North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un.

The North Korean leader has said previously he would hold off on his plans to target the U.S. military protectorate of Guam if Allied Forces would cancel their joint exercise.

“We are absolutely not going to cancel our joint exercises,” Wicker told members of the Rotary Club of Southaven. Wicker is the ranking member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, chairman of the U.S. Helsinki Commission, and chairs the Subcommittee on Seapower.
