The DPRK has responded to the drills by saying it does not fear "military threats" and "warnings" by the United States and South Korea.

The DPRK strongly protested against the joint exercises, and warned that any war ignited by the US and South Korea would spread to the whole of Northeast Asia and the rest of the globe. The DPRK says it will counter any threats with strong and tough measures.

Coinciding with the drills, Pyongyang residents laid bouquets at the foot of the war memorial to mark the signing of a ceasefire agreement at the end of the Korean war.

Hong Sung Chol, Officer, DPRK Army, said, "The US and South Korea are staging large-scale joint military exercises in the East Sea of Korea, despite the strong opposition of Korean people and the world. This is an attempt to stifle the DPRK using force. If the US ignites war again, our army and our people will totally uproot the source of the war, under the leadership of our brilliant commander, General Kim Jong Il."
