North Korea accuses US, South Korea of assassination attempt

According to Pyongyang's state-owned news agency KCNA, Kim inspected the two military units on Jangjae and Mu isles, near South Korea's Yeonpyeong Island that North Korea bombarded in 2010.

The measure requires President Donald Trump's administration to determine within 90 days whether the North Korean government should be re-designated as a state sponsor of terrorism. Many diplomatic experts are also urging that Kim should resolve the issues with the United States and South Korea without using his nuclear weaponry. Previously it has couched such criticism by referring to China only as "a neighboring country".

The allegations made by North Korea are detailed.

The U.S. Embassy in Seoul and South Korea's National Intelligence Service were not immediately available for comment, Reuters reported.

The move is aimed at curbing the North's coal sales, a main source of hard currency suspected of being exploited for its nuclear and missile programs.

"The current situation on the peninsula is complex and sensitive, and the parties concerned should exercise restraint, in particular to avoid taking actions that stimulate others and to prevent a further escalation of the situation on the peninsula", Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said at a regular news conference.

"We will ferret out and mercilessly destroy to the last one the terrorists of the US CIA and the puppet IS of South Korea", the statement said, adding that the plot was tantamount to "the declaration of a war".

China's envoy to the United States, Cui Tiankai, conveyed the request to the US side, to coincide with the first face-to-face, two-day meeting between President Donald Trump and Xi in Florida from April 6, but the Trump administration likely rejected it, the source said.

Beijing should not try to test the limits of the North's patience, it said, warning: "China had better ponder over the grave consequences to be entailed by its reckless act of chopping down the pillar of the DPRK-China relations".

The ministry's statement was carried by the official Korean Central News Agency.

South Korea said Jon, who was arrested by North Korea before he could allegedly blow anything up, defected to the South in 2010.

North Korea regularly accuses South Korea of abducting or enticing its citizens to defect, although Seoul denies it. It called on the North to end its nuclear tests.

Reclusive North Korea warned this week that United States hostility had brought the region to the brink of nuclear war. "China is violently stomping on and crossing it without hesitation".

Pyongyang fired a barrage of 170 artillery shells onto Yeonpyeong island in November 2010, killing four people including two civilians in the first North Korean attack on a civilian area since the 1950-53 Korean War.
