SEOUL (AFP) — North Korea has accused the South of escalating tensions on the Korean peninsula to the brink of war.

Rodong Sinmun, the official daily of the North’s ruling communist party, said the United States and its allies had launched a smear campaign against Pyongyang at the UN Security Council and drastically raised the danger of invading the North.

“The situation on the Korean peninsula is more tense than ever,” the daily said.

It accused South Korean “warmongers” of triggering “war hysteria” by publicising war games exercises through the media in order to divert public attention away from their policy failures.
