North Korea Ends Peace Pacts With South

North Korea Ends Peace Pacts With South
Posted March 8th, 2013 @ 9:06am by By John Johnson, Newser Staff

(NEWSER– North Korea has made good on one of its threats in the wake of new UN sanctions, but luckily it wasn't the one about nuking the US. Instead, Pyongyang announced it was scrapping its non-aggression pacts with South Korea and unplugging the hotline between the two countries, reports AFP.

This apparently means that the 1953 armistice between the two countries will be null and void—as the North had threatened earlier this week—along with a 1991 agreement that sought to further reduce tensions.
