News Story: S. Korean president says not to take a single step backward with DPRK provocations

SEOUL, June 8 (Xinhua) -- South Korean President Moon Jae-in said Thursday that he would not take a single step backward with any provocations by the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK).

Moon's comments followed Pyongyang's fifth missile test-launch since he took office about a month earlier.

The president held his first plenary session of the national security council, and said his government would not make any compromise in defending national security and people's safety.

Moon said the only thing the DPRK can earn from the provocation would be international isolation and economic difficulties, according to a press release by the presidential Blue House.
