North Korea warns of unprecedented reply to US-South Korea drills

North Korea’s foreign ministry said on Friday South Korea and the United States will face an unprecedentedly strong response if they go ahead with their planned military drills, accusing the allies of raising tensions in the region.

In a statement carried by the state media KCNA, the North’s foreign ministry also said it will consider additional action if the UN Security Council continues to pressure Pyongyang.

  1. South Korea and the United States will stage tabletop exercises in Washington next week to improve operations of American nuclear assets as part of efforts to better counter North Korea's threats, Seoul's defence ministry said on Friday.

    Nuclear-armed North Korea fired an unprecedented number of missiles last year, including intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) that could strike anywhere in the United States, while resuming preparations for its first nuclear test since 2017.

    The drills, called the Deterrence Strategy Committee Tabletop Exercise, are scheduled for Feb. 22 at the Pentagon and will involve senior defence policymakers from both sides, the ministry said.

    It would be their first such exercises since the two countries agreed last year to hold them annually, as Seoul seeks to bolster confidence in American extended deterrence - its military capability, especially nuclear forces, to deter attacks on its allies.
