The maneuver, divided into actions from August 10 to 13 and 16 to 26, shows the US hostile policy and its intention to crush the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) with force, she said.
She added that this is a dangerous war test that threatens the security of citizens, and warned about the possible use of nuclear weapons by the US and South Korea.
In March and August of every year, military tension and the risk of a conflict on the Korean Peninsula and the peripheral region are exacerbated due to the war fever by both sides, the North Korean official said.
She accused Washington of covering up its aggressive intentions and destroying peace and the possibilities of dialogue.
This situation proves that it was fair to consolidate our defense capabilities. We will deal with the United States with the principle of responding to force with force and good faith with good faith, the official pointed out.
On the other hand, she expressed her dissatisfaction with ‘the betraying behavior of South Korean authorities.’
