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 UnUS to ask UN Security Council to discuss recent North Korean missile launches 'Rocket Man' and 'The Dotard,' redux North Korea labels Trump a 'heedless and erratic old man' after tweets MORE and President TrumpDonald John TrumpLawmakers release defense bill with parental leave-for-Space-Force deal House Democrats expected to unveil articles of impeachment Tuesday Houston police chief excoriates McConnell, Cornyn and Cruz on gun violence 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.
