New Delhi, July 27 (ANI): North Korea declared on Tuesday that it did not fear "military threats" and "warnings" by the United States and South Korea.
The country's official KCNA news agency quoted a spokesman for the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of Korea, as saying in North Korean capital Pyongyang that the planned US-South Korean maneuvers and new sanctions threats were "serious provocations" and "rude challenges" to the international community appealing for peace.
Japan's participation in the military drills in the name of an "observer" indicated the U.S., South Korea and Japan were forming a "Military Confederation Triangle," the spokesman said in a statement.
He warned the war flame ignited by the U.S. and South Korea would spread to the whole of Northeast Asia and develop into a new world war, adding the DPRK would counter the war plot with stronger and tougher measures.
The four-day war games launched on Sunday involve the Nimitz-class aircraft carrier USS George Washington, 20 ships and submarines and 200 aircraft, with about 8,000 troops on board. Japan sent four military officials to observe the drills. (ANI)
