North Korea warns 'moment of explosion' nears

By Matt Smith, CNN
April 4, 2013 -- Updated 0254 GMT (1054 HKT)


(CNN) -- North Korea stirred up fresh unease in Northeast Asia early Thursday, threatening attacks by a "smaller, lighter and diversified" nuclear force and warning, "The moment of explosion is approaching fast."

The new threat came after the North Koreans locked South Korean workers out of a joint factory complex and announced plans to restart a nuclear reactor it shut down five years ago. Meanwhile, the United States announced it was sending ballistic missile defenses to Guam, a Pacific territory that's home to U.S. naval and air bases.

After a week of threats to the United States and South Korea, North Korea blocked hundreds of South Korean workers from entering the industrial complex, which is an important symbol of cooperation between the two countries.

"The moment of explosion is approaching fast. No one can say a war will break out in Korea or not and whether it will break out today or tomorrow," North Korea's state news agency KCNA declared in its latest broadside. "The responsibility for this grave situation entirely rests with the U.S. administration and military warmongers keen to encroach upon the DPRK's sovereignty and bring down its dignified social system with brigandish logic."

DPRK is short for Democratic People's Republic of Korea, the official name for North Korea.

Most observers say the North is still years away from having the technology to deliver a nuclear warhead on a missile. U.S. officials have said they see no unusual military movements across the Demilitarized Zone that splits the Korean Peninsula, despite weeks of bombastic rhetoric from Pyongyang, and many analysts say the increasingly belligerent talk is aimed at cementing the authority of the country's young leader, Kim Jong Un.

But the North does have plenty of conventional military firepower, including medium-range ballistic missiles that can carry high explosives for hundreds of miles. And U.S. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said Wednesday that the North Korean threats to Guam, Hawaii and the U.S. mainland have to be taken seriously.

"It only takes being wrong once, and I don't want to be the secretary of defense who was wrong once," Hagel told an audience at Washington's National Defense University.

But Hagel also said there was still a "responsible" path for the North to take.

"I hope the North will ratchet this very dangerous rhetoric down," Hagel said. "There is a pathway that is responsible for the North to get on a path to peace working with their neighbors. There are many, many benefits to their people that could come. But they have got to be a responsible member of the world community, and you don't achieve that responsibility and peace and prosperity by making nuclear threats and taking very provocative actions."

DFA: Alert level 1 remains in South Korea

Radyo Inquirer 990AM
4:10 pm | Wednesday, April 3rd, 2013


MANILA, Philippines – Filipinos in South Korea are still under alert level 1 as the “situation remains normal and calm” in the area, Foreign Affairs spokesperson Assistant Secretary Raul Hernandez said on Wednesday.

“There are no changes… it is still peaceful in South Korea,” he told Radyo Inquirer 990AM in an interview.

But the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) was prepared to assist some 40,000 Filipinos who would be at risk in case tension escalates between North and South Korea.

“Alert Level 1 means that they are on heightened alertness but if the situation worsens we will raise it to Alert Level 2 which puts them on restricted movement. Alert Level 3 [would mean] relocation and Alert Level 4 is the time we would repatriate them,” said Hernandez.

The Philippine Embassy in South Korea has identified Gimhae International Airport and Busan Seaport as two of its evacuation centers, added the DFA official. Karen Boncocan, INQUIRER.net
