Seoul, May 8 (UITV/IANS)- A North Korean military spokesperson slammed the recent military exercise carried out by South Korean, calling it a "reckless move" and "grave provocation", Pyongyang's state media reported on Friday.

"This is a grave provocation which can never be overlooked and this situation demands a necessary reaction from us," the official Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) quoted the spokesperson as saying in its report.

According to the report, the South Korean military staged a joint military drill on Wednesday "in the hotspot waters in the West Sea of Korea" with the involvement of more than 20 fighters and storm boats, reports Xinhua news agency.
