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

South Korea and the U.S. will “respond overwhelmingly to end the North Korean regime” if the DPRK carries out a nuclear attack, President Yoon Suk-yeol said Tuesday, as the ROK military showed off a new missile interceptor for the first time.

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.
