S. Korea, U.S. complete joint deterrence strategy against N. Korean nuclear threats
Military authorities of South Korea and the United States have completed their joint deterrence strategy against North Korea's nuclear threats.
Citing an official in Seoul, Yonhap News Agency reports the two allies have been working on the strategy for the past 10 months, and will sign the document during their next Security Consultative Meeting early October.
The strategy document reportedly includes how the two countries would react politically, diplomatically and militarily in the event that North Korea launches a nuclear attack.
South Korea and the U.S. agreed to push the deadline for the strategy forward by a year to this year following analyses that North Korea's nuclear threat has become a real threat, compared to a few years ago, when it was estimated to be a potential threat.
