at For est ParkLawndale Houston Arrangements pending tkeatens to abandon 53 armistice that ended war BY SANGHUN CHOE Associated Press Writer SEOUL South Korea AP North Korea threatened on TYiesday to abandon the 1953 armistice that ended the Korean War accusing the United States of plotting an attack on the communist state A spokesman of the Norths Korean Peoples Army claim ed that the United States was building up reinforce ments around the Korean Peninsula in preparations to attack the North said the Norths official news agency KCNA The situation is therefore getting more serious as the days go by as it is putting its plan for preemptive attacks on the North into KCNA quoted the unidenti fied spokesman as saying The 195053 Korean War ended with an armistice not a peace treaty leaving the countries technically in a state of war A North Korean withdrawal from the armis tice would remove the main mechanism that is helping to keep an uneasy peace on the peninsula The announcement is the latest move in a crisis over the Norths recent decision to restart its nuclear pro grams in violations of inter national treaties Washington and its allies are pressuring North Korea to abandon its suspected nuclear weapon programs The North has insisted on direct talks first with the United States from which it wants a nonaggression treaty The North threat followed by a day a declaration by the communist state that it would triumph in the standoff That bluster came as South Koreas outgoing president Kim Daejung warned that Pyongyangs production of atomic weapons could force his country and Japan to build nuclear bombs as well as South Korea warned that Pyongyangs production of atomic weapons could force the South and Japan to build nuclear bombs as well Secretary of Defense Don ald H Rumsfeld has said that North Korea has one or two nuclear weapons and could extract enough pluto nium within months to make six to eight more North Korea had never admitted or denied having nuclear weapons but has said it has the right to devel op nuclear weapons The spokesman said the grave situation created by the undisguised war acts committed by the in breach of the armistice agree ment compels the Korean Peoples Army side its war ring party to immediately take all steps to cope with it If the side continues vio lating and misusing the armistice agreement as it pleases there will be no need for the North to remain bound to the armistice agree ment the spokesman said The North accused the United States of violating the armistice agreement by send ing reinforcements around the Korean Peninsula and planning to impose a naval blockade against the impov erished communist state North Korea had previous ly threatened to pull out of the armistice in an attempt to increase tension with the and force Washington to start negotiations with the Stalinist regime in Pyong yang European leaders Saddam faces last chance to disarm BY BARRY RENFREW Associated Press Writer BRUSSELS Belgium AP Euro pean leaders trying to end their bit ter dispute over Iraq warned Saddam Hussein on Monday he faces a last charice to disarm but gave no dead line and said weapons inspectors must have more time to finish their work The statement came at the end of a European Union emergency summit on the crisis with Baghdad Diplomats insisted they had healed the rift over calls for military action But significant divisions remained with some states saying the United Nations could still disarm Iraq peace fully War is not inevitable Force should be used only as a last resort It is for the Iraqi regime to end this crisis by complying fully with the demands of the Security the 15 nations said in the joint declaration That was seen as a setback for Germany which has opposed war under any circumstances Baghdad should have no illusions It must disarm and cooperate imme diately and fully The Iraqi regime alone will be responsible for the con sequences if it continues to flout the will of the international community and does not take this last the leaders said Poll Threat of terrorism brings WASHINGTON AP Mots than Mvfcl In 10 say the threat of terrorism has brought no extra stress or anxiety In their lives days a row ened state of terrorism alert Almost percent said they feu extra anxiety because of the threat of terrorism extra stress and anxiety acxxjrdlng to the ABC NewsWashington Post poll taken from Wednesday through Sunday A fourth 24 percent said they have stockpiled supplies and another 12 percent were consider ing It The most popular Items were food and

have expressed a great deal of such worry Those lev els are about the same as last fall and in November 2001 just two months after the terror If While that position will cheer the United States and Britain which are urging military action there was still strong support for continued possibly increased weapons inspections The statement gave no indication of how much longer inspections should continue but said they could not go on forever without Iraqi cooperation They must be given the time and resources that the Security Council believes they the dec laration said However inspections cannot continue indefinitely in the absence of full Iraqi i France which has blocked any swift move to military action insisted its position had been vindicated that only the Security Council can handle the issue an implicit rejection of statements that it has the right to disarm Iraq alone if necessary We all agree the elimination of Iraqs weapons of mass destruction is absolutely imperative but only the Security Council can handle the French President Jacque Chirac said There is no reason today to change the he added That suggests significant wrangling lies ahead if the United States and Britain hope to get a second resolu tion from the Security Council authorizing war British Prime Minis ter Tony Blair wants the resolution because of strong domestic opposition to war Chirac said France would oppose any effort to draft a new resolu tion authorizing war at this time He publicly lambasted eastern European nations seeking to join the EU for their support for Washington over the Iraq crisis It is not really responsible behav ior it is not well broughtup behavior They missed a good opportunity to keep he told reporters Presidents Day blizzard buries Northeast BY ROGER
