North Korea Enters 'State of War' Against South Korea

Posted: Updated:

By JENNIFER EPSTEIN, Politico.com

North Korea says it has entered a "state of war" against South Korea, according to a statement published by state-run KCNA service.

"Situations on the Korean Peninsula, which are neither in peace or at war, have come to an end," the statement, released on Saturday in Pyongyang, says, according to South Korea's Yonhap News Agency.

"From this time on, the North-South relations will be entering the state of war and all issues raised between the North and the South will be handled accordingly," the statement says.

Kim Jong-un reportedly put rocket bases on standby to fire at South Korean and American targets after two U.S. bombers flew over North Korean targets on Thursday. Kim and his generals announced Friday that "the time has come to settle accounts with the U.S. imperialists in view of the prevailing situation," only to further ratchet up their rhetoric in Saturday's statement.
