US-South Korea Drills Could Impact Nuclear Talks, Says North
Tuesday, 16 July 2019 23:41 WIB | GLOBAL |Global

North Korea has criticized U.S. plans to hold a joint military exercise next month with South Korea, suggesting the drills could negatively impact upcoming working-level nuclear talks with Washington.

In a statement from the Korean Central News Agency, North Korea™s Foreign Ministry on Tuesday said the exercise violates an agreement reached last year by Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un in Singapore.

œWe will look at the future moves of the United States, and we will make a decision regarding the holding of working-level talks, said the statement attributed to an unnamed North Korean Foreign Ministry spokesperson.

The U.S. and North Korea agreed to hold working-level talks following a hastily arranged meeting last month between Trump and Kim at the demilitarized zone separating the two Koreas.

That meeting helped restart talks that had broken down over disagreements on how to pace sanctions relief with steps to dismantle North Korea™s nuclear weapons.

At their first summit in Singapore last June, Trump and Kim agreed to work œtoward complete denuclearization of the Korean peninsula. But neither side can agree on what that phrase means or how to begin working toward it.

In Singapore, Trump also agreed to scale back U.S. military exercises with South Korea. But North Korea still regularly complains about the smaller exercises.
