US, Seoul have backup plan if N. Korea provokes - report

The United States and South Korea have prepared an alternative plan for US President Joe Biden's visit to the Asian country in the case North Korea decides to provoke by conducting a missile test, Yonhap reported on Wednesday, citing an unnamed Seoul official.

"The intelligence authorities of South Korea and the US are paying close attention to related movements while maintaining a firm readiness posture," the outlet quoted the official as saying.

Both South Korea and the US previously claimed they have information on Pyongyang's alleged plans to provoke Washington during Biden's May visit to Japan and South Korea.
