Last month the North walked away from working-level nuclear talks with the U.S. in Sweden, saying it was disappointed at the lack of "new and creative" solutions offered by Washington.
Amid stalled denuclearization talks, South Korea's intelligence agency said that working level talks between North Korea and the USA could be held in the coming weeks.
North Korea has criticized the United States for including the communist regime on its list of state sponsors of terrorism, warning that the window for dialogue between the two countries is narrowing due to such "hostile policy".
"This proves once again that the USA preoccupied with inveterate repugnancy toward (North Korea) is invariably seeking its hostile policy towards the latter", the statement said.
Pyongyang condemned a "trite" USA attitude as the cause of a failed deal in nuclear talks in Stockholm on October 5 and refused to sit down for fresh dialogue until Washington takes a substantial step to make the complete and irreversible withdrawal of its hostile policy. It has since threatened to resume nuclear or long-range missile tests. All the members have diplomatic relations with North Korea, although Japan does not.
During the 2017 exercise, the allies mobilized around 270 aircraft, including radar-evading fighter jets such as F-22s, F-35As and F-35Bs in a show of force against North Korea, which had launched a series of nuclear and missile provocations.

"The Secretary determined that the DPRK government repeatedly provided support for acts of global terrorism, as the DPRK was implicated in assassinations on foreign soil", the latest State Department report said.
"This is an insult to and perfidy against a dialogue partner", said the statement carried by state media.
The book, set for release on November 26, comes at a time when the USA has improved diplomatic relations with North Korea, but continues working for concessions on the rogue nation's nuclear development.
It's demanding the easing of the measures and has usually tutored Washington to come forward with an exclusive offer by the end of this year.
USA negotiators tried to set a time for another round of working-level talks when they met in Stockholm, but North Korean officials were uncooperative, a Seoul-based diplomat told Reuters. Though they have agreed to "work toward denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula", the two sides have not been able to agree on the first steps toward doing so.
