The U.N. Secretary General, Ban Ki-Moon has warned that North Korea’s nuclear threats could lead to an escalation of the crisis on the Korean peninsula.

Transcript   EMMA ALBERICI, PRESENTER: The UN Secretary General has warned North Korea’s nuclear threats to lead to an escalation of the crisis on the Korean Peninsula.

Ban Ki Moon says he’s concerned the North’s rhetoric might cause a miscalculation on the part of South Korea.

North Korea watchers believe the rogue regime doesn’t want a full scale war, they argue that Pyongyang is working toward as a small scale military provocation similar to its sinking of a South Korean ship in 2010.

ANDREA BERGER, NUCLEAR WEAPONS ANALYST: The difference this time around will be that South Korea has already made very clear that it will respond in kind to any such provocation and will not tolerate a death of South Korean citizens.

EMMA ALBERICI: South Korea is closely watching its northern neighbour’s missile movements with reports an intermediate range rocket has been moved to a launch site in the country’s east which is closer to US bases in the Pacific.
