North Korea vows 'thousand-fold' military retaliation if provoked

MOSCOW (AP) - The leaders of Russia and China have issued a
joint statement voicing "serious concern" about building tensions
on the Korean peninsula.
They urge North Korea to return to the six-nation talks on its
nuclear program, but the statement did not include any new
initiatives.
North Korea is making fresh threats a day after President Barack
Obama and South Korean President Lee Myung-bak agreed to build a
global alliance to persuade Pyongyang to dismantle its nuclear
weapons.
In a commentary carried in a government-run newspaper, the
communist regime vows a "one thousand-fold retaliation" and a
"merciless military strike" if the U.S. and its allies "infringe
upon" North Korea's sovereignty "even a bit."
