North Korea warns U.S. military could “disrupt” ongoing inter-Korean talks

Foreign ministry says ICBM test plans, assets deployment part of "cunning strategy" to provoke DPRK

North Korea's foreign affairs ministry has claimed that upcoming plans by the U.S. to test two intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) next month and the on-going deployment of assets to the Asia Pacific region are aimed at provoking the North and disrupt ongoing inter-Korean dialogue.

The North will not ignore threats to its security, a Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) spokesperson said, in a statement carried by ruling party organ the Rodong Sinmun on Wednesday.
