N.Korea calls US-South military drills 'threat'

U.S. and South Korean large-scale joint military drills would violate North Korean sovereignty and recent threats from Washington would meet with a "physical response", a Pyongyang diplomat said on Friday.

"It is against the sovereignty of the DPRK (North Korea) and the security of the DPRK," Ri Tong-il, a member of Pyongyang's delegation at a regional security forum in Hanoi, told reporters.

"It is a threat to the Korean penninsula and the region of Asia as a whole," he said. "And the DPRK's position is clear: there will be physical response to the threat imposed by the United States militarily."
