North Korea Calls on UN Demanding Immediate End to US-South Korea Combined Military Drills

North Korea’s Foreign Ministry today called on the United Nations to demand an immediate halt to combined military drills by the United States and South Korea. It said that such combined military drills are raising tensions.

Kim Son Gyong, Vice Foreign Minister for International Organisations said that the drills and rhetoric from the allies are irresponsibly raising the level of confrontation.

The United States and South Korea will conduct more than 10 days of large-scale military exercises this month.

The U.S. and South Korea say the exercises are in self-defence and are necessary to counter the rising threats from North Korea’s ballistic missile and nuclear weapons programmes, which are banned by U.N. Security Council resolutions.
