North Korea Warns of Possible Retaliation for South Korea Exercise

Posted on February 19, 2012


North Korea’s military warned Sunday that it will retaliate if an upcoming South Korean firing drill violates the North’s territorial waters.

A notice carried by the North’s official Korean Central News Agency warned residents of five islands near the disputed border in the Yellow Sea to evacuate before 9 AM Monday morning. An announcer on a radio broadcast from Pyongyang said there will be an immediate and merciless counter-attack if even a “single column of water” is monitored in North Korean waters during the drill.
