North Korea warned South Korea on Thursday that it could face consequences over a naval clash that occurred between the rival countries off their west coast earlier this week. The North's government-run Minju Joson newspaper said in a commentary that South Korea would face "costly consequences" if it continues to assume a confrontational posture against the North. The commentary, carried by the official Korean Central News Agency, did not specify what consequences the South would face if it continues to provoke tension and blame the North for the maritime incident. It said the clash stemmed from a plot by the South to disrupt direct talks that are planned between Pyongyang and Washington by inspiring anti-North Korea sentiment among American officials. The navies of the two Koreas clashed off the countries' west coast Tuesday for the first time in seven years, with each side accusing the other of violating the maritime border.
