The KCNA said Kim examined the operation plan and signed it. He also asked the KPA to stay on high alert against "reckless moves" by the enemies.

Kim, also supreme commander of the KPA, vowed on Aug. 18 to "turn the west sea into a graveyard of the invaders" during a visit to a front-line artillery unit near the tense western sea border.

The South Korea-U.S. joint war games, code-named Ulchi Freedom Guardian, started on Monday and would last for 12 days. Some 56,000 South Korean troops and 30,000 U.S. soldiers are involved. The two countries said the exercises were "defensive in nature."
