South Korea to forge new ‘strategic command’ to counter North Korean threats

Defense ministry says command will oversee ‘precision strike’ system for responding to DPRK attacks

South Korea will soon have a new strategic command system to respond “swiftly and resolutely” to what President Yoon Suk-yeol called North Korean “provocations,” according to the defense ministry on Wednesday.

The announcement came after Yoon led a meeting with commanders of the country’s armed forces and defense minister Lee Jong-sup the same day.
