NKorea threatens war if SKorea joins sanctions

Seoul, Oct 25: North Korea warned South Korea today against joining US-led sanctions against Pyongyang and said it would take action after any such move by Seoul.

South Korea's participation in sanctions would be seen as a serious provocation leading to a ''crisis of war'' on the Korean peninsula, a North Korean spokesman for the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of the Fatherland said in a statement carried by the official KCNA news agency.

The North issued a similar warning in September before it conducted a nuclear test earlier this month, prompting the UN Security Council to impose financial and arms sanctions on North Korea.
