North Korea is entering a "state of war" with South Korea, its state-run news service reports, Saturday.
The statement, carried by the communist country's KCNA news agency, says inter-Korean relations will be dealt with in a wartime manner.
"From this time on, the North-South relations will be entering the state of war and all issues raised between the North and the South will be handled accordingly," the statement said.


North Korean leader Kim Jong Un warned Friday that his rocket forces were ready "to settle accounts with the U.S” after U.S. nuclear-capable B-2 bombers dropped dummy munitions in joint military drills with South Korea.
