Report Accuses North Korea Of Fueling Syria's Chemical Weapons Program A leaked United Nations report gives details on the arms North Korea has sold to Syria, despite sanctions.
"If the US finally holds joint military exercises while keeping sanctions on the DPRK, the DPRK will counter the U.S.by its own mode of counteraction and the USA will be made to own all responsibilities for the ensuing consequences", the spokesperson said. "The US should clearly understand this and exercise prudence".
According to a source close to South Korea's presidential Blue House, Trump requested during the phone call that, if a special envoy is dispatched, Moon share with the United States information on North Korea's reaction and other details on what happened in the country.
The KCNA commentary referred to the scheduled drills as an intention by America "to bring dark clouds of a war to hang over the Korean Peninsula".
The US has "egged the UNSC Sanctions Committee on" to claim a link between North Korea and Syria, the official said, adding that the allegation is created to build additional support for Washington's proposal for a "full-scale sea blockade" of the North and a "military invasion into Syria".
The report said that speaking at a plenary session, North Korea's representative argued the USA was deploying a large number of strategic assets near the Korean Peninsula and intentionally escalating the situation.
Late last month, North Korea surprisingly told South Korea that it is "fully open" to talks with the United States, but Washington has reiterated any dialogue with Pyongyang must focus on the northeast Asian state giving up its nuclear weapons programs. US President Donald Trump also warned of a "phase two" if the sanctions did not work, stating that they could be "very, very unfortunate for the world". "As we have stated on numerous occasions, we will consider any type of blockade as an act of war against us, and if the U.S. has indeed the guts to confront us in any "rough" manner, we will not (hesitate) to respond to it", the representative said.
Pyongyang isn't the only side that has slammed the USA for conducting joint drills with South Korea.
The U.S.is expected to take part in joint military exercises with the South starting in April.
