N Korea scraps talks with Seoul over US military drills

North Korea has said it is scrapping high-level talks with the South due to military drills with the US, reports from the region say.

The joint Max Thunder drills between the South Korean and US air forces are a rehearsal for the invasion of the North, the North’s Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) said.

They are also a provocation amid warming inter-Korean ties, KCNA said.

High-level talks between the Koreas had been due to take place in the southern side of the truce village of Panmunjom to discuss follow-up measures to the leaders’ summit last month.
