N. Korea calls for U.S. to scrap planned military drills with S. Korea to resume nuclear talks Updated: 2019-07-16 17:28:07 KST

If South Korea and the U.S. hold military drills next month, working-level talks between North Korea and the U.S. could be in jeopardy.
A statement released Tuesday by the North's foreign ministry says if the allies go ahead with a planned joint exercise in August it's considering scrapping the working-level talks agreed to by President Trump and Kim Jong-un last month at the inter-Korean truce village of Panmunjeom.
Pyeongyang says Washington is trying to break the spirit of the first summit last year in Singapore and is blatantly trying to pressure Pyeongyang.
Therefore, it says, North Korea is running out of reasons to stick to the promises it's made to the U.S.
The ministry said the North's decision not to test nuclear weapons or ICBMs is equivalent to America's pledge to stop the joint drills.
