These exercises are fuelling tensions on the Korean peninsula and are increasing the risk of war.

"If the South Korean authorities really want detente and peace, they should first stop all the military acts they have waged with the US against their brethren," Efe quoted an article in Rodong Sinmun, the Workers' Party of North Korea's newspaper.

The manoeuvers were the main source of tension and were taking Korea into a dangerous phase in which the situation may be unpredictable.

The call came a few days after Seoul and Washington agreed to delay their annual military manoeuvers until after the Pyeongchang Winter Olympic Games in February, a decision which has led to this moment of rapprochement between the two Koreas.

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un also stressed in the article the need to alleviate the serious military tensions between North and South Korea, and prepare a peaceful environment on the peninsula.

North Korean State newspaper stated that military tension leads to a vicious circle of confrontation. It added that diminishing the risks of war on the Korean peninsula was an important issue for the unification of people and the reunification of the country, which they have to carry out without intervention.

Rodong Sinmun concluded that the US is constantly aggravating the situation with the aim of achieving world supremacy.
