The Democratic People's Republic of Korea has continued its condemnation on the joint U.S-South Korea military exercises. On Wednesday, it said it is ready for both dialogue and war and has all means to defend itself.

The official news agency KCNA quoted a DPRK Foreign Ministry spokesman as saying that current U.S.-South Korean military exercises were a "wanton violation" of the Armistice Agreement and ran counter to the presidential statement of the United Nations Security Council of July 9th, 2010.

The statement calls for settling the pending issues on the Korean Peninsula through dialogue and negotiations in a peaceful manner.

The DPRK recently released a series of articles to condemn the United States and South Korea for launching joint military exercises named Ulji Freedom Guardian. The exercises involve more than 30-thousand U.S. soldiers and 56-thousand South Korean troops.
