North Korea steps up demands to halt military drills as Key Resolve set for March

Rodong warns of "severe consequences" if U.S.-ROK joint military exercises allowed to continue

North Korean state media has stepped up its calls in recent days for the U.S. and South Korea to end all joint military drills, following reports that the allies will go ahead with the Key Resolve computerized simulation drills in March.

The public demands also come as a delegation of top North Korean officials led by Kim Yong Chol arrived in Washington Thursday to meet U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and possibly President Donald Trump.
