North Korea warns US, S.Korea of security crisis over military drills

North Korea on Wednesday warned the US and South Korea of a possible security crisis over their joint military drills.

In a statement, Kim Yo Jong, vice-department director of the Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea, said Washington and Seoul are holding the joint military exercises despite their repeated warnings which will surely make them face a more serious security threat.

“They are the most vivid expression of the US hostile policy towards the DPRK [Democratic People's Republic of Korea], designed to stifle our state by force, and an unwelcoming act of self-destruction for which a dear price should be paid as they threaten the safety of our people and further imperil the situation on the Korean peninsula," Kim Yo Jong said in a statement published by state-run Korean Central News Agency.

“The dangerous war exercises pushed ahead by the US and the South Korean side disregardful of our repeated warnings will surely make them face more serious security threat," he warned.
