Military official insists plans obtained by North Korea last year remain "valid," however

Seoul and Washington are in the process of devising a new wartime operational plan, the chairman of the ROK Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) said on Monday, amid reports that the current plans had been obtained by DPRK-linked hackers.

“We are drawing up a new operational plan while re-estimating overall conditions, including our capabilities in accordance with North Korea’s new advanced threats,” General Jeong Kyeong-doo said during a parliamentary audit.
