North Korea’s armed forces ministry confirmed Wednesday that it has canceled a 60-year-old armistice ending the Korean War. “The armistice agreement is no longer valid and [North Korea] is not restrained by the North-South declaration on non-aggression,” AFP quoted a ministry spokesperson as saying. A statement quoted by KCNA news agency argued that the US and its “puppets” in Seoul were responsible for the real “warmongering,” and that “what is left to be done now is an action of justice and merciless retaliation of the army and people” of North Korea.
