SEOUL, March 29 (Yonhap) -- North Korea announced Saturday that it has entered a state of war against South Korea.
In a special statement, the North's "party, ministries and other institutions" said they will deal with every inter-Korean issue in a wartime manner.
"Situations on the Korean Peninsula, which are neither in peace or at war, have come to an end," read the statement carried by the Korean Central News Agency, Pyongyang's official news agency.
It cited an emergency military meeting convened by leader Kim Jong-un on Thursday in which he reportedly approved plans for striking U.S. and South Korean targets.
Kim's "important decision" is an ultimatum to "hostile forces" and a final decision for justice, added the statement.
