Seoul says it can no longer tolerate personal attacks on President Moon Jae-in

SEOUL -- South Korea vowed Wednesday to retaliate against any North Korea military action after Pyongyang threatened to send troops into border areas.

"The North will pay the price for any military actions," Major General Jeon Dong-jin of South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff told reporters. "We are monitoring North Korean forces' movements around the clock. We keep a firm military readiness and will continue to make efforts to stop military tensions from escalating."
