N. Korea Army orders troops on war posture over planned naval drills
Prior to news of the cancellation, the North Korean Army ordered all of its troops to be on a war posture against the U.S.-led drills on the Korean peninsula.
The North's Korean Central News Agency reported Tuesday that the General Staff of the Korean People's Army protested against the deployment of the U.S.S. George Washington for the joint military exercises with South Korea and Japan.
He added the U.S. would be responsible for any horrible disasters that may arise.
A spokesman for the army chief argued that, if the U.S. truly wanted to see the denuclearization of the Korean peninsula, it should be Washington not Pyongyang that should prove its determination.
