North Korea snubs peace talks with South Korea over war drills

(COLOMBO, LANKAPUVATH) – North Korea has rejected any further talks with South Korea, calling its decision “completely the fault of South Korea’s actions”.

It issued a statement in response to a speech by South Korea President Moon Jae-in on Thursday.

Meanwhile, early on Friday North Korea test-fired two missiles into the sea off its eastern coast, the South Korean military said.

It is the sixth such test in less than a month.

Six days ago, North Korea fired two short-range ballistic missiles into the Sea of Japan.

The series of tests come after US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un agreed during a meeting in June to restart denuclearisation negotiations.

North Korea has faced international sanctions for its development of nuclear weapons.
