Britain told to back off

7 Days in Dubai - - GLOBAL NEWS -

North Korea wants Britain to pull out of up­com­ing mil­i­tary ex­er­cises in South Korea, call­ing the drills a “hos­tile act”. Britain has an­nounced that it will send fighter jets and sup­port planes to Asia, and that it will take part in ex­er­cises in South Korea to­gether with South Korean and US forces in early Novem­ber. “This is a hos­tile act, openly join­ing the US and South Korean forces in moves for a new war against us,” said North Korean Foreign Ministry of­fi­cial Pak Yun Sik. “Britain claims that this mil­i­tary ex­er­cise is not tar­get­ing us, but the US and South Korea openly say that these mil­i­tary ex­er­cises are aimed at launch­ing a strike against our mil­i­tary fa­cil­i­ties and our com­mand struc­ture.”
