North Korea threatens military drill

PYONYANG, NOC – South Korea and the United States will face even greater security threats for moving forward with their scheduled joint military drills that will begin this week, said Kim Yo Jong, the North Korean official and sister of leader Kim Jong Un.

South Korea and the United States will begin preliminary military exercises on Tuesday, the Yonhap news agency reported Monday, despite North Korea’s warning that this would reverse progress in improving inter-Korean relations.

The drills are an “unwanted and self-destructive action” that threatens the North Korean people and increases tensions on the Korean peninsula, Kim Yo Jong said in a statement released by the state news agency KCNA.

“The United States and South Korea will face a more serious security threat by ignoring our repeated warnings to go ahead with dangerous war exercises,” he said.
