North Korea Warns US, South Korean Military Drills Could Trigger ‘Thermonuclear War’

North Korean state media warned U.S. Military officials on Monday that “thermonuclear war” could break out after denouncing the U.S. and South Korea joint military drills test-firing strategic cruise missiles on the Korean Peninsula.

U.S. and South Korean militaries began their annual Ulchi Freedom Shield computer-simulated command post exercise, which Navy officials said is designed to ensure the Alliance is ready to defend the Republic of Korea and promote security and stability in Northeast Asia. But North Korea has long viewed the drills as a potential war simulation.

“A thermo-nuclear war, the first ever in history, is more than likely on the Korean peninsula,” KCNA news agency reported.

The warning comes days after leaders of the U.S., South Korea, and Japan met at Camp David in Maryland last week to form their first stand-alone trilateral agreements dubbed the “Camp David Principles,” as threats from China and North Korea increase in the Pacific.

“The purpose of our trilateral security cooperation is and will remain to promote and enhance peace and stability throughout the region,” U.S. President Joe Biden, South Korean President Yoon Suk Yeol, and Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida reportedly said in a joint statement.
