N.Korea pledges to regularly conduct ballistic missile launch drills

North Korea will continue to conduct ballistic missile launch exercises in response to ongoing U.S. – South Korean joint military drills, Rodong Sinmun, an organ of the ruling Workers’ Party of Korea (WPK), reported on Friday.

The article defended the legitimacy of early March's ballistic rocket-launch drill, arguing that no one has the "right to denounce” the drill as it is “normal training” responding to the “nuclear war moves of the enemies including the U.S."
