Geneva, June 4 (ANI): North Korea's Deputy Permanent Representative to the UN in Geneva has warned that a war may break out on the Korean Peninsula at any moment.

Ri Jang-Gon said on Thursday the current grave situation was caused by South Korea and the United States, over the sinking of the South Korean warship Cheonan in March.

Xinhua quoted Ri, as saying that Pyongyang had nothing to do with the sinking of the warship.

"The results of investigation made by the South Korean regime is a sheer fabrication based on assumptions, guesses and supposition," he told a session of the UN-sponsored Conference on Disarmament.

He also said that the people of North Korea are "making their up most efforts to attain the goal of a powerful and prosperous country by the year 2012." (ANI)
