The Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) newspaper Minju Choson issued a commentary on Tuesday, accusing the U.S. and South Korea of planning to hold large-scale joint military exercises in the West Sea of Korea.

The article said such a military manoeuver would push the situation on the Korean Peninsula to the edge of "a war", disturbing peace and stability in Northeast Asia.

According to the commentary, the exercises were a joint military operation between the United States and South Korea aimed at preparing for an aggressive war against the DPRK, a plot intended to launch a preemptive attack on the DPRK.

The commentary said the exercises would cause an armed conflict and even an all-out war. So it is an important mission and urgent issue for the DPRK to block the aggressive move of the United States and South Korea to defend peace and stability on the Korean Peninsula, Asia and the whole world.

The commentary stressed that the DPRK army and people should follow the moves of the United States and South Korea with vigilance and make all preparations for any situation.

The U.S.-South Korean joint military exercises in the West Sea of Korea had initially been planned for late June but were postponed to July.
