    North Korea is ready for a "sacred war of justice" using the nuclear deterrent, its armed forces minister has said.

    Kim Yong-chun said exercises conducted by South Korea near the border were a preparation for war with the North.

    The drill is one of the largest in South Korea's history, involving tanks, helicopters and fighter planes.

    South Korea has been urged not to carry out the exercises
    Tension has been high since North Korea shelled the South's Yeonpyeong island last month, killing four South Koreans.

    South Korean President Lee Myung-bak has promised immediate retaliation to any further Northern attack.

    The South Korean army acknowledged that the drill was aimed to display its firepower.

    Although the South has conducted 47 military drills this year, this is the largest winter live-fire exercise ever conducted on land.
    'Military provocation'

    The North earlier branded Seoul's exercises "warmongering" but until now had not threatened the South with any retaliation.

    During a meeting in the North Korean capital, Mr Kim, quoted by Pyongyang's Korean Central News Agency, accused the South of preparing for a new Korean War.

    "The South Korean puppet forces perpetrated such grave military provocation as renewing their shelling against the DPRK [Democratic People's Republic of Korea] during their recent exercises for a war of aggression in the West Sea [Yellow Sea] of Korea," he said.

    "This indicates that the enemy's scenario for aggression aimed at the start of another Korean War, has reached the phase of its implementation."

    "The revolutionary armed forces of the DPRK are getting fully prepared to launch a sacred war of justice of Korean style based on the nuclear deterrent at anytime necessary to cope with the enemies' actions deliberately pushing the situation to the brink of a war,"

    Both China and Russia have called on the South to defuse tensions and US officials too are privately expressing their concern about Seoul's new, more aggressive stance.

    South Korea and the US had already been conducting large-scale military exercises, following the apparent torpedoing of a South Korean warship by the North on 26 March, which killed 46 south Korean sailors.

    Efforts to redirect the Korean issue back to the negotiating table have been unsuccessful.

    China and the North say it is time to return to the six-nation talks about North Korea's nuclear programmes.

    But the US, South Korea and Japan have said they will not return to such talks, which have previously involved rewards for the North if it cuts back on nuclear development.

    North Korea walked out of the six-party talks in April 2009 and expelled UN nuclear inspectors from the country.

    Typical of bloody attitude of world powers--- always ask the victim to extend the first hand rather than the aggressor themselves. I think ROK has sufficient capability to churn out weapons in huge numbers during wartime and It would be best if it goes for the kill. SK still has the talent to rebuild; and also has the chance to liberate DPRK people of Kim's tyranny.

    ROK and Japan have had enough and must join forces to fight the DPRK.

    China would say that for saving its rabid pet. I think no more negotiations. China's sincerity will be also put to test here whether they will truly remain out of this issue as Hu said earlier or whether that was just a lip service. ROK should go for the kill.

    well, it is almost a privity between Russia, US and China to keep Korea penisula divided.

    even if N.korea were defeated in the coming possible war, CHina troops would simply take over N.korea and set up another puppet regime in N.Korea before S.korea advance acorss the current border.

    An attacking dog doesn’t bark. I've listened many times from North Korean media that they will made a "scariest”, “most catastrophic”, “wipe out” blow to SK. It just show how scare dear leader worry about his regime. This mad man is holding millions of North Korean hostage and continues blackmail the world to feed his evil empire.

    At the end of the day Korean people will remember his bloodiness and sentence him and his family evil in history book.

    NK has been saying this kind of thing for decades. it is not new. the only thing new about recent events is they killed SK civilian. coincidence that it is also when SK fire into NK waters during the rare leadership change.

    wikileaks suggest China is ok with unification under SK as long as US doesnt cross 38th parallel.

    and unless you are in SK or NK army, dont recklessly call for war. your family is not the one in danger.
