N. Korea warns Australia against missile pressure

North Korea's ambassador to Australia warned Sunday that attempts to halt his nation's missile tests could spark a war. In an article written by Ambassador Chon Jae Hong that appeared in The Sunday Herald Sun newspaper in the southern city of Melbourne, he defended Pyongyang's series of test missile launches last week. "It is a lesson taught by history and a stark reality of international relations, proven by the Iraqi crisis, that the upsetting of the balance of force is bound to create instability and spark even a war," Chon said. North Korea "will have no option but to take stronger physical actions of other forms, should any country dare take issue with the exercises and put pressure upon it," he added.
