Joint­ly host­ed by Kore­an and U.S. Defense and Health-Wel­fare Min­istries, the exer­cise was designed to be held at a nation­al lev­el to check a joint response sys­tem against not only nat­ur­al bio-dis­eases like avian influen­za but also bioter­ror threats. 

The two coun­tries also sought the bilat­er­al coop­er­a­tion to enhance their capa­bil­i­ties to defend pos­si­ble bio­log­i­cal attacks. 

Annu­al­ly held a sec­ond time since last year, this exer­cise had more than 190 per­son­nel from more than 50 bio­log­i­cal war-relat­ed agen­cies of the two governments. 

The entire exer­cise was a dis­cus­sion-based exer­cise. The first three days were allot­ed to the work­ing-lev­el par­tic­i­pants’ sit­u­a­tion­al train­ing exer­cise and the last day to high­er-lev­el personnel’s seminar.
