North Korea says it is scrapping all political and military agreements with South Korea, accusing Seoul of pushing it to the brink of war.
The latest flare-up centres on a dispute over the sea border between the two countries.
A statement from North Korea's Committee for Peaceful Reunification says Pyongyang is tearing up an agreement on the sea border, as well as all other political and military accords.
It accuses the conservative government of South Korean President Lee Myung-bak of ignoring the agreements and pushing the communist state to the brink of war.
Earlier this month, North Korea's military threatened an "all-out confrontational posture" against the south, prompting Seoul to put its army on full alert.
