Pyongyang Threatens Seoul with War Over Military Exercises with U.S.

(MENAFN- Qatar News Agency) North Korea warned Saturday of "all-out military action" unless Seoul cancels the plans and halts its anti-Pyongyang broadcasts along their joint border.
Seoul informed Pyongyang on Saturday that the annual joint exercises, which North Korea has long condemned as a rehearsal for war, will be held Aug. 17-28.
In a statement carried by the North's official Korean Central News Agency, an unnamed spokesman for the National Defense Commission threatened to take "the strongest military counteraction." South Korea resumed its anti-Pyongyang broadcasts Monday in response to a land mine explosion inside the demilitarized zone between the two countries that left two South Korean soldiers severely injured.
