SEOUL: North Korea warned Tuesday that any accidental clash during an upcoming US-South Korea naval exercise could spark war, as tensions remained high over the sinking of a South Korean warship.

Minju Josun, the cabinet’s official daily, accused the South and its US ally of “fabricating” facts about the sinking to incite a war against the communist state.

“It is as clear as day that a small accident that might occur during the joint military exercise would easily spread to an armed clash and eventually, to an all-out war,” it said, slamming the planned drill as provocative and dangerous.

The United States and South Korea are planning a special naval exercise as a show of strength in response to the sinking, which they blame on the North. No dates have been announced.
