The South Korean military on Friday warned it would make North Korea "pay the price" if it took military action against Seoul.


Declaration by the Council of Chief of Allied Korea (JCS) came hours after North Korea announced it would re-deploy troops to an industrial zone inter-Korean town of Kaesong on the western border and resorts General calendar of Mount Kumgang in the east, according to Yonhap.

North Korea has announced it will restore guard posts that have been removed from the demilitarized zone separating the two peninsula and resume all regular military exercises near the inter-Korean border, in a clear move aimed at eliminate the signed military tensions reduction agreement in 2018.

"These moves impede two decades of efforts by South Korea and North Korea to improve inter-Korean relations and preserve peace on the Korean peninsula. If North Korea really takes such a move, surely they will pay the price."

said Jeon Dong Jin, commander of operations at JCS.
Earlier, the younger sister of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, Kim Yo Jong, threatened to cancel the deal completely in anger as activists in South Korea spread anti-Pyongyang leaflets across the border.

Kim said Seoul should be ready to "cancel a two-region military deal that is virtually worthless" if there is no measure to handle leaflets.

After a series of claims to increase tensions on the peninsula, Pyongyang destroyed the inter-Korean liaison office in the town of Kaesong on June 16.

"Regarding the current security situation, our army is closely monitoring the movements of the North Korean army continuously and maintaining a firm readiness."
 Jeon said.
"We will continue our efforts to keep the situation stable, to prevent the escalation into a military crisis."
