Yoon says South Korea could ‘end North Korea regime’ as ROK shows off weapons

President emphasizes joint efforts with US to deter DPRK use of nuclear weapons in speech at military event

Yoon made the remarks in a speech during a morning military parade at Seoul Airport to mark the 75th Armed Forces Day, which celebrates the founding of the ROK military.
