Tensions With North Rise as South Korea’s President-Elect Takes Tougher Line
SEOUL—South Korea’s incoming president, who has promised to take a tougher stance on North Korea, hasn’t taken office yet. The tone between Seoul and Pyongyang is already getting more adversarial.
President-elect Yoon Suk-yeol, who takes office next month, promised Thursday to strengthen deterrence against the Kim Jong Un regime’s nuclear and missile threat. The moves could include bringing in more U.S. military firepower, according to delegates representing Mr. Yoon.
