North Korea on Tuesday accused the United States of "inciting tension" by holding joint military exercises with South Korea and said Pyongyang would take measures to defend itself.

Ju Yong Chol, a North Korean diplomat in Geneva, told the U.N.-sponsored Conference on Disarmament that Pyongyang would have to "reconsider the major steps we have taken so far". He did not mention its latest firing of missiles into the sea off its east coast earlier on Tuesday.
