South Korea keeping close watch on North

South Korea is keeping a close watch on North Korean moves "as there are possibilities that these activities could lead to provocations," South Korean Defense Ministry spokesman Kim Min-suk said Tuesday.

The South is also making sure its combined forces with the United States are prepared in case of such provocation, in which "we will respond in a more resolute and destructively manner," the spokesman said.

    And why would we do such a thing if we didn't expect a reaction @saywhat
    It's clear to everyone that we are doing it for a hidden agenda, but what would that be? @ saywhat
