article imageNorth Korea nullifies peace treaty with South Korea

By Sami Zaatari     Mar 8, 2013 in World
After weeks of threatening to end a peace pact with the South Koreans, the North Koreans have followed through with their threat, ending all non-aggression acts with the South.
North Korea's latest move comes amid heightened tension and rhetoric in the region.
The North Koreans had recently threatened to carry out a nuclear attack against the United States for it's military drills alongside the South Koreans, as well as the threats of UN sanctions which have now come into effect.
The latest round of UN sanctions are said to target both the North Korean economy, as well it's leadership, UN American ambassador Susan Rice claimed that the new sanctions would "bite hard".
The latest round of sanctions come as a punishment to North Korea's third and successful nuclear test carried out last month, in violation of UN security council resolutions.
In response to North Korea's rhetoric of using nuclear weapons, South Korea's defence ministry spokesman warned that North Korea would be "extinct from the earth by the will of mankind" if it were to use it's nuclear arsenal against the South.
US state department spokesman stated that it is taking the North Korean threat seriously, but would be able to defend the country in the face of a North Korean strike.
