US and South Korea Sign Military Plan

Details a joint response to North Korean "provocations"


South Korea has signed a new military plan with the US to counter what officials call North Korean "provocations".

The plan provides for a joint response between both countries in the event of a limited attack from the North, officials say.

Help from the US—which has 28,000 troops in South Korea—has until now been optional in minor skirmishes.
