North Korea Warns It Might Resume Nuclear And Missile Tests

The Hill: North Korea warns US-South Korea drills threaten nuclear talks

North Korea is warning that planned U.S.-South Korea military drills could pose a threat to denuclearization talks between Washington and Pyongyang.

A statement from North Korea published by its official Korean Central News Agency said that President Trump had promised to halt the exercises during two of his meetings with Kim Jong Un, but that the planned drills and weapons sent to South Korea show the U.S. is not keeping up its agreement, according to The Associated Press.

“With the U.S. unilaterally reneging on its commitments, we are gradually losing our justifications to follow through on the commitments we made with the U.S. as well,” the statement said.

Never ever believe when the media says someone was executed in NK. Yes, NK is a despotic shit hole where people DO disappear, however the track record our media has on reporting these leadership executions is abysmal. They never know for sure if their sources are telling them these stories simply to get paid, or for personal reasons due to their understandable grudges against the regime.
