North Korea. March 16. UITV. A group led by the USS Carl Vinson, which is joining South Korean forces for exercises, would infringes on North Korean's sovereignty or dignity.
So,North Korea has warned United States on tuesday of "merciless" attacks.
"If they infringe on the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK)'s sovereignty and dignity even a bit, its army will launch merciless ultra-precision strikes from ground, air, sea and underwater," the North's state KCNA news agency said.
"On March 11 alone, many enemy carrier-based aircraft flew along a course near territorial air and waters of the DPRK to stage drills of dropping bombs and making surprise attacks on the ground targets of its army," KCNA said.
A U.S. Navy spokesman said the Carl Vinson(who is leading a group of U.S) was on a regular, scheduled deployment to the region during which it would take part in exercises with the forces of ally South Korea.
Last week, North Korea fired four ballistic missiles into the sea off Japan in response to annual U.S.-South Korea military drills, which the North sees as preparation for war.
The United States began to deploy the system a week ago, a day after North Korea launched its latest four missile tests.
South Korean and U.S. troops began the large-scale joint drills, which are billed as defensive in nature, on March 1.
The last year's exercise involved about 17,000 American troops and more than 300,000 South Koreans. South Korea has said this year's exercise would be of a similar scale.
