South Korea downplays North restraint

South Korea downplayed North Korea’s decision to not follow through on threatened retaliation to its live-fire military drill this week as political maneuvering, according to a key South Korean military official quoted by CNN. Seoul is working to adjust its security approach, believing that North Korea might launch less conventional attacks – including possible terrorist strikes on large civilian gatherings, according to the South Korean government official. South Korea might also strengthen its intelligence capability, the official said, calling it increasingly crucial to its defense. The South Korean live-fire naval drill ended peacefully Monday after an hour and 34 minutes.
