The Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of Korea said it would not talk unless Seoul abandoned its confrontational posture, in a statement released through the official news agency. The South's unification ministry described that as a preliminary response, and said it would watch developments.
The remarks came as the US secretary of state, John Kerry, reiterated Washington's keenness to see a return to dialogue, following weeks of tension on the peninsula. The North has issued threat after threat and pulled workers out of the Kaesong joint industrial complex.
Japan's foreign minister, Fumio Kishida, said North Korea had to honour its commitment to earlier deals on its weapons programmes and on returning kidnapped foreigners.

How dare you respond to my threats with your nasty remarks - say you are sorry right now! or look at the hand.

But didn't North Korea's aggression come about BECAUSE of aggressive 'posturing' on the part of the South and the U.S.A.?
I'm trying to remain unbiased on the issue as difficult as that can be sometimes, but if I put myself in NK's shoes... I kind of can't blame them for getting antsy when big armies are drilling near my front door.
