Yoon visits Marine corps on Lunar New Year holiday

SEOUL, President Yoon Suk Yeol visited a Marine Corps unit Saturday to show appreciation for the troops' service and order strong readiness against North Korea, his office said. On the Lunar New Year holiday, Yoon visited the Marine Corps Second Division in Gimpo, just west of Seoul, to inspect the unit's military readiness amid heightened tension with Pyongyang. "If the enemy provokes, you have to sternly and overwhelmingly respond under the principle of 'act first, report later' to completely crush the enemy's will," Yoon was quoted as saying. He inspected the multiple rocket system Cheonmoo and urged the troops to be prepared against any North Korean provocations. During his meeting with soldiers, Yoon made surprise appearances in some soldiers' video calls with their parents on the traditional holiday. Source: Yonhap News Agency
