S.Korean, U.S. military chiefs reaffirm full defense posture against N. Korea: The top military officers of South Korea and the United States agreed Friday to maintain full combat readiness based on the strong alliance against North Korean threats, defense authorities here said.

In a 35 minute telephone conversation with Marine Corps Gen. Joseph F. Dunford, the chairman of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS), his South Korean counterpart Army Gen. Lee Sun-jin stressed that the North's nuclear and missile development can never be tolerated, according to Lee's office.

He also emphasized the need for deterring the communist neighbor from taking provocative acts through their "ironclad combined defense posture."
