SEOUL, May 6 (Xinhua) -- South Korea and the United States launched a five-day joint naval military drill on Monday in the Yellow Sea with the participation of a nuclear-powered Los Angeles- class submarine, the Yonhap News Agency reported.

The anti-submarine regular exercises also mobilizes Aegis destroyers and P-3C maritime surveillance aircraft deployed from U. S. bases, the agency cited military officials as reporting.

It is reported that a 97,000-ton Nimitz-class nuclear powered super carrier arrived in the U.S. 7th Fleet on May 3. However the defense ministry didn't confirm whether it will participate in the exercise.

The Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) said Sunday that if Seoul really worries about the future of the Kaesong industrial zone, it should stop all its hostile policy and provocative military drills toward Pyongyang.

In response to Pyongyang, South Korean defense ministry spokesman said in a briefing Monday, "Just like students must study hard to prepare for the exam, all the armies have to participate military exercises. Therefore, as long as the combined forces and South Korean military exist, the drill will continue."
