South Korean President Lee Myung Bak dismissed the possibility of a war breaking out between North and South Korea on Saturday despite increased tensions caused by the sinking of a ship belonging to the South Korean navy.

“There is no possibility of a full-scale war on the Korean Peninsula. Occasionally, there has been locally peace-threatening behavior, and we’ll strongly suppress that,” the president was quoted by Bloomberg News as saying.
