North Korea posed for all out war with South Korea

North Korea says it’s ready for an “all-out war” against South Korea as a 5:30 p.m. (0830 GMT) Saturday deadline approached set by Pyongyang for Seoul to dismantle loudspeakers broadcasting anti-North Korean propaganda along their border.

The warning by North Korea’s Foreign Ministry came after North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on Friday declared his front-line troops in a “quasi-state of war” and ordered them to prepare for battle. South Korea on Thursday fired dozens of artillery rounds across the border, saying North Korea had fired first to back up a threat to attack the loudspeakers.

In a statement carried by North Korea’s official Korean Central News Agency, the Foreign Ministry says North Korean soldiers and people are “poised not to just counter-act or make any retaliation but not to rule out an all-out war to protect the social system, their own choice, at the risk of their lives.”
