North Korea cancels high-level meeting with South Korea

North Korea said Wednesday that it has suspended talks with South Korea due to the ongoing annual joint military drills by South Korea and the US.

North Korea's Central News Agency (KCNA) called the Max Thunder air force drill involving 100 aircraft a preparation for an invasion and a "provocation" just as the inter-Korea relationship is warming up.

The North-South talks were set for Wednesday in the Panmunjom truce village to discuss implementation of the Panmunjom joint declaration towards peace, unification, and prosperity on the Korean peninsula.
