President Park Geun-hye emphasized the need for the allies to prepare for any type of security threat or natural disaster during her visit on Thursday to the ongoing Seoul-Washington annual joint military exercise.
Some 80-thousand South Korean and U.S. troops are participating in this year's Ulchi Freedom Guardian drills.
The South says they are strictly defensive in nature, while North Korea considers it a war game.
She also visited the Capital Defense Command in a first for a South Korean president in 23 years.
