South Korea, US map out plan to deter North Korea nuclear: Report
SEOUL (AFP) - South Korea and the United States have mapped out a joint operational plan which outlines concrete measures to deter and respond to North Korea's nuclear threats, a report said on Sunday.
The plan encompasses political, diplomatic and military measures to specify how Washington will provide a nuclear umbrella for South Korea in the case of North Korean nuclear provocations, Yonhap news agency said.
The customised plan will be signed at a security meeting between US and South Korean defence chiefs in early October, it said.
"The deterrence plan can be considered equivalent to an operational plan," a South Korean government source told Yonhap.
