WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama's spokesman says the White House is concerned by war threats coming from North Korea.
North Korean state media said Monday that Pyongyang was cancelling the 60-year-old armistice that ended the Korean War.
White House press secretary Jay Carney responded that Pyongyang will achieve nothing with threats. But he said the White House is "concerned by North Korea's bellicose rhetoric."
Obama National Security adviser Tom Donilon told a meeting of the Asia Society in New York the claims may be "hyperbolic." He said the United States will protect its allies if Pyongyang uses any weapons of mass destruction or transfers nuclear materials.
Donilon also said Obama will meet with newly inaugurated South Korean President Park Geun-hye at the White House in May.
