North Korea witholds military retaliation to drills by South

It was “not worth reacting” to exercise, says North


 

Military drills carried out by South Korea elicited a muted response by the North, which had initially threatened “brutal consequences beyond imagination,” if the exercises went forward. The military operations took place on the South Korean island that was shelled by North Korea’s artillery last month, but Pyongyang dismissed them as “not worth reacting” to. Separately, North Korea also told New Mexico governor Bill Richardson, who was in Pyongyang as a U.S. envoy, that it is ready to rejoin the so-called six-party diplomatic talks, and promised to return the remains of hundreds of U.S. troops killed during the Korean War.
