South Korea Holds Military Drills; Receives No Threats from North

Photo Courtesy - Korea Pool/Getty Images(SEOUL, South Korea) -- South Korea's army and air force held a large military exercise on its border Thursday, with criticism but no threats from North Korea.

The drills were held in the Pocheon region, close to the north-south border.  It was the largest combined army and air force drill during winter time.  Units involved included tanks, three dozen self propelled artillery, fighter jets and multiple rocket launchers.

In contrast to threats in recent weeks, North Korea had a muted response to the drills.  It said Thursday that South Korea is trying to hide provocative nature toward the north.  The response was part of a comment in the form of a news dispatch rather than in the name of the government wing.
