North Korea was on the ‘brink of war’ with the South today after Kim Jong Un ordered his troops to mobilise in the most serious confrontation between the rivals in years.

Kim declared his front-line troops in a ‘quasi-state of war’ after Pyongyang issued an ultimatum to Seoul to halt anti-North propaganda broadcasts or face military action.

The South has refused, warning North Korea it will face ‘searing’ consequences if it launches fresh provocation.
‘The situation of the country is now inching closer to the brink of war,’ Ji Jae Ryong, North Korean ambassador to China, said in Beijing today.

South Korean Vice Defence Minister Baek Seung-joo also said it was likely the North would fire at some of the 11 sites where the loudspeakers are set up on the South’s side of the Demilitarised Zone (DMZ) which separates the two countries.

A North Korean sympathiser with close knowledge of the regime claimed Pyongyang was ready to ‘go nuclear’ if South Korea doesn’t respond to the demands.

Kim Myong-chol, executive director of The Centre for North Korea-US Peace and a Japan-based mouthpiece for the regime, warned that Kim Jong Un was ready to use nuclear weapons.
