______________________________

In late March, the DPRK said that relations between the two Koreas are now on a “war footing”, and Pyongyang would react accordingly in the case of “hostile provocation”, which could escalate into war… even a nuclear one. In early March, the DPRK protested against the holding of joint American/ROK military exercises, saying that it cancelled all agreements with the ROK on nonaggression and denuclearisation, and terminated the Armistice Agreement signed to end the Korean War. Besides that, the DPRK threatened to launch a nuclear attack on the USA.

What’s behind it all… a possible war on the Korean peninsula, its probable origins, and what are its possible consequences? It might look like a conflict between the DPRK and the ROK, but what positions might the USA, China, and Russia take in the event of such an eventuality?

Experts see no evidence of preparations for war by the DPRK>>
