North Korea Says It’s In A “State Of War” With The South

SEOUL, South Korea (March 30, 2013)--North Korea says it has entered 'a state of war' with South Korea in the latest in a series of threats that have raised tensions on the Korean Peninsula.

A statement Saturday by Pyongyang said all matters between the sides will be dealt with in a manner befitting war.

Earlier this week, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un ordered troops on high alert in response to annual U.S.-South Korean drills.

He warned his forces were ready "to settle accounts with the U.S." after two American B-2 bombers flew a training mission in South Korea.

South Korea said the latest threat is a follow-up to Kim's order.

Analysts say a full-scale conflict would be suicidal for Pyongyang and the threats are aimed at drawing Washington into talks.
