    North Korea warns of 'all-out war'

    Seoul: North Korea on Saturday issued a fresh warning of an "all-out war", urging the United States to stop military drills and what it described as "nuclear blackmail".

    In a thinly veiled threat to strike the United States, the North's National Defence Commission (NDC), chaired by leader Kim Jong-Un, said the US government must withdraw its policy of hostility against the North if it wants peace on both the Korean peninsula and the "US mainland".

    "(The United States) must bear it in mind that reckless provocative acts would meet our retaliatory strikes and lead to an all-out war of justice for a final showdown with the United States," a spokesman of the NDC was quoted as saying in a statement carried by Pyongyang's Korean Central News Agency.

    "We emphasize again that the United States must withdraw various measures aimed to isolate and strangulate us. Dependent upon this are... peace and security, not only on the Korean peninsula but the US mainland as well."

    The comments come after a two-day joint naval drill between Japan, South Korea and the US, which included an American nuclear aircraft carrier, sparked a series of angry responses and threats from Pyongyang.

    On Friday the North slammed a naval drill by US, South Korean and Japanese warships as a "serious military provocation" and vowed to "bury in the sea" the American carrier taking part in the exercise.

    The latest bellicose statement from the NDC demanded that the US lift sanctions against the North, stop the "constant nuclear blackmails" and various war drills.

    It rejected as "intolerable contempt" a US demand that it should show tangible commitment towards abandoning its nuclear programmes if it wants substantive talks with the United States.

    "The denuclearization of the Korean peninsula is an inalterable policy goal of the DPRK government," it said, but added that getting rid of such weapons should also include a total removal of US nuclear threats against the North.

    The US and South Korea have long demanded that Pyongyang show tangible commitment to ending its nuclear weapons programme before the six-party talks, which have been stalled for several years, can resume.

    The North has said for years it wants denuclearisation of the whole Korean peninsula and that it is developing a nuclear arsenal to protect itself from the US military, which occasionally sends nuclear-powered warships and aircraft capable of carrying atomic weapons.

    In February the North carried out its third underground nuclear test in defiance of UN Security Council resolutions, sending tensions soaring and raising fears of possible conflict. It also launched a rocket in December that Washington said was a disguised ballistic missile test.

    As well as the two Koreas, China and the US the six-party talks also involve Russia and Japan.

    interesting ! every Indian poster somehow focuses on NK's usual rhetoric alone while turning a deaf ear to sabre rattling of "the joint military drill which involves a nuclear aircraft carrier ".

    who is provocative or blackmailing? forget not there's no Chinese military presence in NK nor ever a joint exercise together. what if China becomes reciprocal one day?

    funny how u defend NK.... while conveniently forgetting all the provocation ranging from bombing of SK island to sinking of SK warship killing 46 sailors to building a nuke bomb to proliferating nuke technology and missiles to iran pakistan etc..

    well whats stopping china from holding military drills or stationing its troops over there... its your choice .... no one can/will stop u... !!

    my defending NK is a "counter balance" to the overwhelming bias.

    1. NK's shelling SK island was incited by SK's drill towards NK coast.

    2. Sinking of SK ship was not proven of NK's torpedo. pls browse for 3rd party investigation results.

    3. Chinese force pulled out from NK after truce as a gesture for South and North to "resolve their differences without external forces interference" i.e. pressing US + to do the same.

    4. NK's primitive conventional arms r no match of SK+US without Chinese+Soviet supplies& upgrade, plus continuous embargo, nor does China commit to nuclear umbrella coverage .

    1. u mean to say NK does not hold any drills near its borders/coast with SK...?? as long as they dont violate each others territorial integrity or any treaty SK has every right to conduct such drills to familiarize its troops with the terrain ...

    North Korea reportedly conducts military drill near South Korean border | Fox News

    2.
    ROKS Cheonan sinking - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia... it also contains 3 rd party investigation report presented to UNSC... but yes result is highly disputed by many.. so

    3. well it was chinese decision ... but u also have to take into account overwhelming force on the other side of the border plus the close proximity of chinese and soviets to NK to resupply men and material ... which SK+ US did not enjoy ! and it was a very good advantage

    4. true. but as i said... it upto chinese ..

    best part is that Pakistani help NK with nuclear tech and SK help Pakistan with setting up of artillery shell factory.

    If China becomes reciprocal, it will be for all to see what China does behind close doors with North Korea!
