The United States and South Korea have begun a joint military exercise amid heightening tensions with North Korea.

The two militaries began the drill, called Key Resolve, as scheduled on Monday to confirm their chains of command. They have also been conducting separate field maneuvers in the region.

The latest drill began on the day North Korea declared that all non-aggression agreements with the South have been scrapped.

South Korea's Unification Ministry says the North on Monday cut off the telephone lines between the liaison offices of the 2 Koreas in the border village of Panmunjom.

South Korean Defense Ministry spokesman Kim Min-seok said the militaries will immediately punish North Korea if it resorts to military provocation.

The South Korean military says it is alerting areas near the armistice line and at sea west of the Korean Peninsula, citing the possibility the North may expand its military drills.

North Korea has expressed anger over new UN Security Council sanctions in the wake of its third nuclear test and the ongoing US-South Korea military exercises.
