South Korea’s president Lee Myung-bak orders his army officials to be alert over Pyongyang’s warnings of a ‘nuclear war’ in the troubled peninsula.
Lee’s office said on Sunday that the president has summoned his top security officials, ordering them to “resolutely and squarely cope” with the North Korean threats.
“North Korea should give up its nuclear program … and stop any kind of military threat,” read a statement issued by the office. “We urge North Korea to respond in a sincere dialogue to improve South-North Korean relations.”
