The long-boiling rivalry between North Korea and South Korea has finally boiled over again as North Korea declared all military and political agreements with South Korea “dead”

Scranton, Pennsylvania (CaymanMama.com) –The long-boiling rivalry between North Korea and South Korea has finally boiled over again as North Korea declared all military and political agreements with South Korea “dead” Friday, threatening its refusal to honor past deals if Seoul continues to instigate war.

The North’s Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of Korea blames South Korean President Lee Myung-bak of elevating tensions on the Korean peninsula with his adamant position on Pyongyang. The Committee cautioned that Lee’s position would do nothing but create “a heavier blow and shameful destruction.”

“The group of traitors has already reduced all the agreements reached between the north and the south in the past to dead documents,” the committee in charge of inter-Korean affairs said in a statement published on a state-run Korean Central News Agency.

Conflict between North Korea and South Korea has been at an all time high since Lee took power in Seoul a year ago. The Koreas fought in a bloody three-year war in the 1950s and have remained a divided country with a boundary line standing as one of the world’s most heavily guarded and tension-filled borders.

As a hard-core conservative, Lee vowed to crack down on Pyongyang, doubting the decisions of his predecessors’ “sunshine policy” of cultivating a peaceful reconciliation by surrendering aid to the nuclear-armed North. Pyongyang responded eliminating any further talks of reconciliation with Seoul.
