Meanwhile earlier in the day
President Park Geun-hye said that given the current political situation in North Korea, the South Korean government cannot rule out the possibility of a "reckless provocation" by Pyongyang.
The recent execution of Jang Song-thaek, who was regarded as the second-most powerful figure in North Korea, has raised many questions about Pyongyang's next move.
During a meeting with her top secretaries earlier this Monday morning, the president urged the public and private sectors and the military to stay prepared for any contingencies.
