North Korea is concerned about its people’s grief over the death of Kim Jong Il, and the U.S. and South Korea should take that into consideration to ensure stability on the Korean peninsula, Ambassador Valery Sukhinin told reporters today in Pyongyang, according to KCNA.
The report didn’t say which military drills Sukhinin was referring to. The U.S. and South Korea are set to hold joint drills from Feb. 27 to March 9.
