North Korea has scrapped all political and military agreements with South Korea, the official KCNA news agency reported Friday. It denounced the South Korean government for pushing the inter-Korean relations to the brink of a war.

"First, all the agreed points concerning the issue of putting an end to the political and military confrontation between the north and the south will be nullified," said a statement issued by the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of Korea, the North Korean organisation in charge of ties with South Korea.

"Second, the Agreement on Reconciliation, Non-aggression, Cooperation and Exchange between the North and the South and the points on the military boundary line in the West Sea stipulated in its appendix will be nullified," it said, denouncing the South Korean government for pushing the inter-Korean relations to the brink of a war.
