North Korea lashed out at South Korea Wednesday for its large-scale annual military drills and vowed harsh retaliation, claiming that the exercises are aimed at launching a nuclear war against the communist country.
The South Korean military on Monday kicked off the Hoguk defense exercises involving some 330,000 troops with the aim of bolstering its defense posture against growing North Korean threats. The 12-day drill is the largest ever in terms of scale.
