The secretive state unleashed its fury against US President Donald Trump as officials warned military drills would be a “provocative act” that “tramples the small sprout of peace” that has been seen on the Korean peninsula.

Kim Jong-un’s regime sent a chilling warning to the US saying the nation was not prepared to sit idle. Chiefs announced the drills as preparations to invade.

A warning, pumped out by the communist state’s propaganda machine, described the joint drill is an “act of ruthlessly trampling even a small sprout of peace that has been now seen on the Korean peninsula”.

Pyongyang’s mouthpiece Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) said: “It is a provocative act of chilling the active efforts of the DPRK and enthusiasm of the international community to defuse tension and create a peaceful environment.”

Tensions on the Korean peninsula have eased since last year resulting in inter-Korean talks and the North sending a high-level delegation led by Kim Yo Jong, the sister of leader Kim Jong Un, and athletes to the Winter Olympics.

The warning follows Seoul and Washington agreeing to postpone the regular joint military exercise until after the Winter Olympics and Paralympics being hosted in South Korea, which ends on March 18.

After the decision to delay the joint exercise, North Korea agreed to hold the first official talks with South Korea in more than two years and send athletes to the Winter Games, easing a standoff over Pyongyang’s nuclear and missile programmes.

Asked when the two countries will hold the postponed drill, South Korea’s Song Young-moo told parliament he and his US counterpart, Jim Mattis, would make an announcement between March 18 and the start of April.
