North Korea condemns Ulchi Freedom Guardian drillsUpdated: 2014-08-20 20:05:21 (KST)
North Korea continues to blast the ongoing joint military drills between Seoul and Washington, saying that peace on the Korean Peninsula is necessary for economic development.
The North's official news agency on Wednesday denounced the Ulchi Freedom Guardian drills as an "unacceptable provocation" that threatens its sovereignty and dignity.
It added the recent firing was an act of self defense against what it believes are threats from the U.S. and South Korea, warning of unpredictable response if they continue.
What a mess.
