South Korea will not tolerate insults, aggression from the North: Blue House

ROK army also warns DPRK will "pay the price" should it escalate tensions

South Korea will "not endure" further insults or aggression from the North, Seoul's presidential Blue House said Wednesday, in the wake of Pyongyang's high-profile demolition of an inter-Korean liaison office at Kaesong the previous day.

In a series of statements, the Blue House, along with Seoul's defense and unification ministries, expressed "strong regret" in response to Pyongyang's repeated threats to redeploy troops and resume military drills in previously-demilitarized areas along the inter-Korean border.
