"North Korea's continued missile launch and violation of the armistice pose a serious threat to the peninsula and the global peace. We sternly warned that the North bears all responsibility for inter-Korean tensions and the threat to world peace… We urge the government to set up the so-called three axis defense scheme to effectively counter the North's threat and strengthen military capability," the resolution adopted by the South Korean parliament on Saturday read as quoted by the Yonhap news agency.
The three axis defense scheme includes the Kill Chain pre-emptive strike system, the Korean Air and Missile Defense (KAMD), and the Korea Massive Punishment and Retaliation (KMPR).
Tensions on the Korean Peninsula
The United States responded with new threats of using military force against the reclusive state. Speaking at an urgent UN Security Council gathering, US ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley warned that the continued acts of Korean aggression could lead to a war that would leave North Korea's leadership "totally destroyed."
