North Korean party daily slams South Korean drills, U.S. plans to expand UNC

Rodong Sinmun warns recent ROK exercise "runs counter" to North-South military agreement

North Korea's ruling party daily on Monday and over the weekend condemned a recent independent military drill by South Korea, as well as alleged U.S. attempts to expand the role of the United Nations Command (UNC).

In an analysis featured on page six of Monday’s edition of the Rodong Sinmun, the Workers’ Party of Korea (WPK) organ condemned Seoul's “2019 anti-infiltration general training,” saying the drill “runs counter” to the 2018 military agreement between the two.
