North Korea condemns South Korean military drills

Criticism played down in domestic media, but comes as S. Korea, U.S. sign contingency plan against DPRK

A North Korean newspaper condemned South Korea on Wednesday for hosting the largest military parade in a decade, labeling it “a farce to beg for the U.S. forces’ permanent occupation”.

The Rodong Sinmun opinion piece said Tuesday’s troop and hardware display was “unprecedented and aggressive lunacy” and nothing more than a ”showcase where South Korean authorities beg for permanent occupation of the U.S. invader”.
