North Korea will not tolerate repeated intrusions into its territorial waters by South Korean warships, a Pyongyang statement warned on Sunday. The North's Navy Command claimed 54 South Korean warships intruded deep into the North's waters near the disputed western sea border last week, despite its repeated radio-broadcast warnings to sail back to the South. It said the alleged incursions threatened a joint declaration to ease tension between the rivals that was signed by the leaders of the two Koreas earlier this month. "The behavior is an unpardonable and undisguised provocation," the command said in a statement carried by the official Korean Central News Agency, adding it was the "the product of their political and strategic attempt to drive the North-South relations to the phase of confrontation again."
