(3rd LD) N. Korea threatens to nullify Korean War truce agreement
(ATTN: UPDATES with more information in 7th and 10th paras)
SEOUL, March 5 (Yonhap) -- Citing what it called U.S.-led international moves to punish it for its recent nuclear test, North Korea threatened Tuesday to nullify the 1953 armistice accord that ended the Korean War.

The North also denounced joint South Korea-U.S. military exercises scheduled to start next Monday, declaring that if the maneuvers are conducted, it will cut off military phone links across the border with South Korea.
