North Korea quiet on U.S., South Korea joint drills

U.S., South Korea joint drills
 North Korea is staying silent after South Korea announced joint exercises with the United States for April.


Pyongyang's state media outlets on Wednesday including KCNA, KCTV and Workers' Party newspaper Rodong Sinmun did not condemn the drills, Yonhap reported.

North Korea media usually unleashes verbal attacks of the South following announcement of military drills with the United States.

The drills were announced Tuesday, and North Korea typically delivers a swift media response that blames a "hostile U.S. policy" for raising tensions on the peninsula.

The absence of official statements addressing joint drills Key Resolve and Foal Eagle appears to be supporting remarks from leader Kim Jong Un to a special South Korean delegation during their recent visit to Pyongyang.

According to Seoul, Kim reportedly said he "understands" the need for the South to conduct drills in April, and "at the level of the previous year."
