A spokesman for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the DPRK told KCNA on July 16, with regard to the DPRK-US working-level talks. He said:

At present, rumours run riot across the world concerning an opening of the DPRK-US working-level talks.

The United States is going to conduct a joint military exercise "Alliance 19-2" with south Korea in contravention of the commitments made at the highest level at a time when the working-level talks between the DPRK and the US are on the agenda, which has been made possible by the DPRK-US summit meeting in Panmunjom.

If the military exercise really goes ahead, it would affect the DPRK-US working-level talks.
