DPRK says US-South Korea military drills could lead to nuclear war

North Korea accused the US and South Korea of escalating tensions to the brink of nuclear war through their joint military drills, vowing to respond with ‘offensive action’ – as reported by Reuters


International security analyst Choi Ju Hyon said, “The exercises are a trigger for driving the situation on the Korean Peninsula to the point of explosion. The reckless military confrontational hysteria of the US and its followers against the DPRK is driving the situation on the Korean Peninsula to an irreversible catastrophe ... to the brink of a nuclear war.”

Earlier, it was reported that South Korea, the US and Japan have started joint naval drills off the Korean Peninsula. North Korea warned countries that by starting the exercises, these states ‘approached a serious danger’.
