The DPRK stands for the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, the North's official name.

A spokesperson for North Korea's foreign ministry said Saturday that the drills between the usa and the South would harm reconciliation efforts on the peninsula and that they would be forced to "counter" the U.S.

This is according to the North's state-run Korean Central News Agency which said Saturday that North Korea made this remark at the World Disarmament Conference in Geneva on Tuesday.

Report Accuses North Korea Of Fueling Syria's Chemical Weapons Program A leaked United Nations report gives details on the arms North Korea has sold to Syria, despite sanctions.

"If the U.S. finally holds joint military exercises while keeping sanctions on the DPRK [Democratic People's Republic of Korea], the DPRK will counter the United States by its own mode of counteraction and the USA will be made to own all responsibilities for the ensuing consequences", North Korea's official KCNA news agency said in a commentary on Saturday.

The US submitted the request a week ago, a move it said is "aimed at shutting down North Korea's illicit maritime smuggling activities to obtain oil and sell coal".

Zabaleta said: "It is not only against West Ham - we have seen they can score more than two or three goals against top sides". Emre Can also struck while Salah and Mane both hit the woodwork in Liverpool's dominant display.

North Korea is believed to have banked on cryptocurrency a year ago to counter worldwide sanctions over the reclusive nation's nuclear and missile programs, according to a report by a United States broadcaster.

Quoting an official of the North Korean Foreign Ministry's Institute for American Studies, the Korea Central News Agency said the United States was perpetrating a "preposterous fabrication yet again".

"Whether peace desired by our nation and the rest of the world settles on the Korean Peninsula or a situation that no one desires is developed in the vicious cycle of confrontation depends entirely on the attitude of the U.S.", the spokesman said, according to KCNA.

In a phone call on Thursday, South Korean President Moon Jae In informed U.S. President Donald Trump of his plan to soon dispatch a special envoy to Pyongyang.

The possibility of talks between Washington and Pyongyang gained traction after the North stated its willingness for dialogue a couple of times last month, amid its participation in the PyeongChang Winter Olympics.
