article imageNorth Korea warns foreigners to leave South amid new war threats

By Owen Weldon     Apr 9, 2013 in World
Amid new threats of war, North Korea has warned foreigners to leave the south in order to avoid being dragged into thermonuclear war.
According to Reuters, even though North Korea has issued new threats, there is still no sign of it preparing its 1.2 million-strong army for war, and South Korea's capital showed no signs of major concerns, as offices were operating normally and traffic was still bustling.
According to The Guardian, the official KCNA news agency said that an official from a North Korean organisation, Korea Asia-Pacific Peace Committee, said that they do not want foreigners being harmed in South Korea in the event war does break out.
According to Washington Post, the committee also said that the Korean Peninsula is getting very close to a thermonuclear war due to The United States and South Korea's moves for a war against North Korea.
Jay Carney, a White House spokesman, responded to the statement the committee made, and described it as more unhelpful rhetoric. Carney went on to say that the statement was also concerning and provocative.
