US-South Korea Drills Provocative, Could Trigger Nuclear War

Alwaght- North Korea has warned against "provocative large-scale joint military exercises," saying that the unprecedented drills would "amplify the unpredictability of the situation" and pave the way for a nuclear war in the Korean Peninsula, according to the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA).

A spokesperson for the Ministry of National Defense lambasted the joint exercise between Washington and Seoul, dubbed "Freedom Shield", which includes double the number of troops participating in the drill compared to last year. 

In particular, the official pointed to the mobilization of "the armed forces of 11 subordinate countries belonging" to the United Nations Command, stressing that the force has "no justification for its existence."

The unprecedented drills focus on simulating possible scenarios of war between the two Koreas and aim to prepare commanders from the US and South Korea for such a situation. 

The spokesperson dubbed the "war practice" as "frenzied", calling out South Korean officials as "puppets" of Washington. The official stressed that the drills show "more clearly who is the [entity] threatening humanity with nuclear weapons."

He added: "The armed forces of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea will continue to monitor the adventurous actions of the enemy and continue responsible military activities to strongly control the unstable security environment in the Korean Peninsula region."
