North Korea Threatens Nuclear Strike Over Joint Military Exercises

North Korea threatened nuclear attack against South Korean and US forces undertaking a military exercise.

Its fury was provoked by an annual series of computer simulated exercises called Ulchi Freedom Guardian, conducted over ten days by the US and South Korea. The North routinely accuses the two allies of using the exercise as a pretext for preparing an invasion.

“Should the US and South Korea commit even the slightest military provocation infringing upon [North Korea’s] sovereignty, it will mount a merciless and prompt annihilating strike at the aggressors with all offensive and defensive means including nuclear deterrent.” the Korean Central News Agency reported.
