The exercises of the US and South Korea led to a breakdown of talks with the DPRK

The authorities of the DPRK canceled the talks scheduled for Wednesday with South Korea because of the ongoing joint US-South Korean air exercises Max Thunder, Yonhap agency reported citing the Central Telegraph Agency of Korea (DTC North Korea).

The message of the CPCK states that "the exercises are aimed" at the DPRK and "are a glaring challenge to the Pangmunjom Declaration and a deliberate provocation that is contrary to positive political development on the Korean Peninsula." It also calls into question the holding of the announced and planned for 12 June meeting of the leaders of the United States and the DPRK. "The US will have to undertake serious discussions about the fate of the planned DPRK-US summit in the light of this provocative military action carried out jointly with the South Korean authorities," the South Korean news agency quotes.

The exercises that began last Friday Max Thunder are designed for two weeks. They are attended by almost 100 military aircraft of the South Korean Air Force and the Seventh Air Army of the United States. Similar exercises are conducted from 2009 year two times a year.
