    New South Korea exercises to test border tension

    South Korea has said it will hold new large-scale military drills involving ground and air live fire on Thursday.

    Artillery, jets and about 800 soldiers will take part, the government said, alongside separate naval exercises that began on Wednesday.

    Tension has been high since North Korea shelled the South's Yeonpyeong island last month, killing four South Koreans.

    Drills by the South on Monday near Yeonpyeong sparked Northern threats of retaliation that did not materialise.

    North Korea believes that the immediate cessation of South Korea's war games, the banning of all future war games around the Korean peninsula and an apology for blaming North Korea for the sinking of a South Korean vessel will help to ease tensions.

    Brazil, whilst not wishing to appear favourable to either side, would like to ask whether the DPRK will apologise for it's role in escalating tensions?

    North Korea does not believe that it is in any way responsible for the escalating tensions. We have reacted proportionately to South Korea's aggressive behaviour.

    Surely the fact that you reacted to South Korean posturing with a military attack marks an escalation?

    Afghanistan agrees with our neighbour China and also hope that both sides show restraint.

    Escalation is in no-one's interest.

    Afghanistan would also like to stress that in view of the nature of modern warfare, we regard using most types of weapons of mass destruction as contrary to the international norms and to our Islamic principles.
    We are seeking a universal disarmament of all nuclear weapons.
    We fully support an Asia and the Middle-East free of nuclear weapons.
    This includes North Korea and while we hope that they show restraint, we also condemn their possesion of nuclear warheads.
