Pyongyang, October 11 (RHC)-- The People's Democratic Republic of Korea strongly criticized the three-nation naval drills involving U.S., South Korean and Japanese warships -- threatening to "bury in the sea" a U.S. aircraft carrier.
Friday's warning came one day after the U.S. started a two-day joint military exercise with South Korea and Japan off the southern coast of the peninsula. The nuclear-powered aircraft carrier USS George Washington, guided-missile ships, anti-submarine helicopters as well as early warning aircraft are involved in the naval drill.
North Korea's Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of Korea said in a statement: "The war drills show that the U.S.-Japan-South Korea tripartite military alliance has developed into the nuclear war alliance and has become operational in actuality."
The statement warned that if the three nations launch a nuclear war "while talking about 'sign' and 'preemptive attack' despite repeated warnings by North Korea, its revolutionary armed forces will immediately mount counter-attack to bury the aggressors, provocateurs in the sea together with the carrier."
