South Korean President Yoon Suk-yeol on Sunday called for the maintenance of readiness posture by the South Korean and US military forces in case of “any provocations” by North Korea including a Hamas-style surprise attack.

Yoon made the remark during a dinner with the US delegation for a Security Consultative Meeting scheduled to be held on Monday including Austin and US Ambassador Philip Goldberg, Yoon’s spokesperson said.

US President Joe Biden agreed with Yoon and Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida at an August 18 summit that by the end of this year the three countries would share North Korea missile warning data in real time.
