N.Korea Threatens to Take 'New Path'

      August 07, 2019 12:09

      North Korea fired another two projectiles into the East Sea on Tuesday that are presumed to be short-range ballistic missiles and slammed ongoing U.S.-South Korea military drills.

      The North Korean Foreign Ministry in a statement told South Korea to "behave wisely" and warned that it may have to "look for a new path" if the joint drills continue.

      "We have already warned several times that the joint military exercises would block progress in the [North Korea]-U.S. relations and the inter-Korean relations and bring us into reconsideration of our earlier major steps," the statement warned.

      Cheong Wa Dae belatedly called a meeting of security ministers to discuss a response, but President Moon Jae-in has yet to convene the National Security Council. Moon has not commented on four missile provocations by the North since July 25.
