SEOUL - North Korea warned South Korea's new president to "watch her tongue" on Wednesday, as tension between the two sides mounts, reprising the kind of vitriolic language that it dished out to her predecessor on a regular basis.

North Korea has in recent days threatened the United States with nuclear war and rehearsed drone attacks on South Korea, prompting Washington, involved in military drills with the South, to say it is ready for any contingency.

Park Geun-hye, South Korea's first female president, marked the third anniversary of the sinking of a South Korean warship that killed 46 sailors by calling on the impoverished North to abandon its nuclear ambitions to save its starving people.

The South, backed by an international commission, blames a North Korean torpedo attack for the sinking although Pyongyang denies it was responsible.

"The owner of Cheongwadae (South Korea's presidential office) had better... watch her tongue," North Korea's official KCNA news agency quoted a spokesman for the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of Korea as saying.

North Korea has made no secret of its hatred for Park and earlier this month referred to the "venomous swish" of her skirt.
