North Korea's ambassador to the United Nations is again demanding that South Korea cancel its upcoming joint military exercises with the United States.
"We again propose immediately and unconditionally halting all military and hostile acts targeting the fellow countrymen in collusion with outsiders," Ho said in a rare press conference.
South Korea has so far rejected the North's offer to take a series of steps to ease tensions that include canceling the military drills, saying Pyongyang must take nuclear disarmament steps first.
The ambassador took questions but referred everyone to North Korean media and his speech for answers.
