South Korean Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha said Thursday that a military response to Pyongyang's provocations would be "unacceptable".

However, it also came one day after the allies confirmed a resumption of their delayed joint military drills in South Korea immediately following the 2018 Winter Olympic Games to be held in South Korea's PyeongChang from February 9-25.

"If the United States truly wishes for the improvement of the North-South ties and has a willingness to provide a peaceful environment on the peninsula, it should completely halt the joint military exercises, not just postponing them", the KCNA statement said.

"I'm very pleased with the fact that North and South are united as one to participate in [the Olympics]".

The US and South Korea are going to keep tightening the screws on Pyongyang so that the hermit state gives up its nuclear program, Pentagon chief Jim Mattis said today.

Both exercises, according to US Forces Korea, are created to "highlight the longstanding military partnership" between the two countries and improve stability and security on the Korean Peninsula.
