Moon points finger at North amid US-South Korea joint drills
North’s provocations in response will only lead to more military action
South Korea President Moon Jae-in repeated his demand that North Korea stop its provocations in response to US-South Korean joint exercises, warning of a “vicious cycle,” reports the Joongang Daily.
The annual drills are “defensive in nature,” Moon said, adding that provocations in response would only “lead to another round of joint military action.”
“The North should not distort our efforts to safeguard peace in the region,” he said, “and should not use the drill as an excuse to aggravate tensions with new provocations.”
