Pyongyang: North Korea on Tuesday warned the US that its upcoming joint military exercises with South Korea would be a "violation" of the bilateral commitments and would affect nuclear talks.In a statement released by the North Korean Foreign Affairs Ministry, the country criticized the August military exercises at a time when Washington and Pyongyang are considering resumption of denuclearization talks, Efe news reported the state-run Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) in a report.

Seoul and Washington going ahead with the 19-2 Dong Maeng exercises "would affect working-level negotiations", Pyongyang said.The statement added that a decision on talks with the US would be made after keeping watch on Washington's moves.
