North Korea on Sunday condemned a joint military drill between South Korea and the United States and threatened a pre-emptive strike.

South Korean and US troops began large-scale joint military exercise on March 1 conducted annually to test their defense readiness against the threat from North Korea, which routinely characterizes the drills as preparation for war against it.

North Korea has protested against the drills, which it calls a rehearsal for war and claims the exercise is aimed at its leader Kim Jong Un.

The drill 'Foal Eagle' will be continued until the end of April and last year it involved about 17,000 American troops and more than 300,000 South Koreans.
