North Korea warns of war

South Korea vows “stern action” after ship sinking; North Korea denies involvement


South Korea’s accusations that North Korea was responsible for the attack on one of its naval warships in March, killing 46 sailors, has prompted deepening tensions and harsh words. After a multinational investigation of the sinking pointed to North Korea, South Korean president Lee Myung-bak promised “stern action” against his not-so-friendly neighbour. For its part, North Korea is dismissing the results of the investigation as a fabrication, and issued a warning of its own: “If the (South Korean) enemies try to deal any retaliation or punishment, or if they try sanctions or a strike on us,” said Col. Pak In Ho of North Korea’s navy, “we will answer to this with all-out war.”
