SEOUL, Jan. 12 (Yonhap) -- North Korea's propaganda outlet called for the total suspension of joint military drills between South Korea and the United States on Friday, in response to the allies' decision to delay them until after the PyeongChang Winter Olympics.

The North's website Uriminzokkiri said that dialogue and a "war rehearsal" cannot go together, calling the exercises the source of catastrophe for the Korean Peninsula.

"They should totally stop the military drills, not just delay them," it said in a commentary.

The North has long denounced the drills as a rehearsal for northern invasion and used them as an excuse for provocations.
