The US Department of Defense has reviewed its strategy on defending South Korea following the military buildup in North Korea, media reported on Monday.

WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — The US officials view Pyongyang’s buildup as a serious treat and have already carried out a number of urgent discussions with South Korean counterparts, CNN reported.

US Ready to Deploy B-52 Strategic Bombers in South Korea
The satellite images reveal North Korea has activated some air defense radars, deployed additional artillery near the demilitarized zone with South Korea, and deployed up to one-third of coastal fleet, media reported.

South Korean media reported on Monday evening that Seoul and Pyongyang reached an agreement to defuse tensions in the current border standoff.

On Thursday, North Korea fired shells at a South Korean military base across the demilitarized zone. Seoul responded by firing back dozens of heavy artillery rounds.

The shelling followed an earlier incident on August 4, when North Korea allegedly detonated anti-personnel box mines in a South Korean military patrol zone, injuring two soldiers.
