North Korea has slammed the three-nation naval drills involving US, South Korean and Japanese warships, threatening to ‘bury in the sea’ a US aircraft carrier.

The Friday warning came a day after the US started a two-day joint military exercise with South Korea and Japan off the southern coast of the peninsula.

The nuclear-powered aircraft carrier USS George Washington, guided-missile ships, anti-submarine helicopters as well as early warning aircraft are involved in the naval drill.

North Korea’s Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of Korea said in a statement, “The war drills show that the US-Japan-South Korea tripartite military alliance has developed into the nuclear war alliance and has become operational in actuality.”
The statement warned that if the three nations launch a nuclear war “while talking about ‘sign’ and ‘preemptive attack’ despite repeated warnings of (North Korea), its revolutionary armed forces will immediately mount counter-attack to bury the aggressors, provocateurs in the sea together with the carrier.”
Meanwhile, Russia has also warned against military buildup in the region.
