North Korea's State Affairs Commission, the country's highest decision-making body, slammed the U.S. on Wednesday for its planned military drills with South Korea, The Associated Press reports.


The commission says that the expected drills hurt bilateral relations discussed by leader Kim Jong UnKim Jong UnSanders says he would 'absolutely' be willing to use military force if elected president We should listen to John Bolton Donald Trump: Unrepentant, on the attack and still playing the victim MORE and President TrumpDonald John TrumpSchiff blasts Trump for making 'false claims' about Russia intel: 'You've betrayed America. Again.' Poll: Sanders leads 2020 Democratic field with 28 percent, followed by Warren and Biden More than 6 in 10 expect Trump to be reelected: poll MORE, and that the military exercises force the North Korean military to raise its level of readiness. 

Continuing, the commission warned that the U.S. can expect a “bigger threat and harsh suffering" if it continues to refuse to come to the table for nuclear talks before the end-of-the-year deadline that Kim has set.

The once-promising talks between the two countries have stalled since October, when the two sides failed to have a productive meeting in Stockholm.
