SEOUL (Sputnik) - US-South Korean drills will harm relations between the two Koreas and undermine the the leaders' intention to restore mutual trust, the North Korea leader's sister Kim Yo Jong, who is a deputy department director of the Workers' Party of Korea, said on Sunday.
"For some days I have been hearing an unpleasant story that joint military exercises between the south Korean army and the U.S. forces could go ahead as scheduled ... I view this as an undesirable prelude which seriously undermines the will of the top leaders of the north and the south wishing to see a step taken toward restoring mutual trust and which further beclouds the way ahead of the north-south relations," Kim said, as quoted by the KCNA news agency.
