Pres. Moon: Seoul Will Never Tolerate N. Korea's Nuclear and Missile Threats

President Moon Jae-in says he will never tolerate provocations and nuclear threats by North Korea, vowing to sternly deal with the North in cooperation with the international community.

The president made the remarks Wednesday during his first visit to the Defense Ministry and the Joint Chiefs of Staff(JCS) in Seoul.

He said he made the visit just a week after taking office due to the current grave state of the nation's security.

Moon also noted the rapid advancement in the North’s nuclear and missile capabilities, calling Pyongyang's latest missile launch a serious provocation that violates UN Security Council resolutions and poses serious challenges to global peace and stability.

The president called for efforts to secure key assets and domestic defense capabilities to counter the North's nuclear and missile threats, while maintaining a solid South Korea-US joint defense posture.

In addition, he urged the ministry to swiftly carry out the long-term "Defense Reform 2030" plan and make efforts to prevent irregularities in the defense industry.
