The defense heads of South Korea and the United States agreed Thursday to update their joint contingency plans in case of a war with North Korea amid an armed race sparked by Pyongyang's recent weapons tests.

US Defence Secretary Lloyd Austin met his South Korean counterpart Suh Wook for the annual Security Consultation Meeting (SCM) during which they decided to rewrite their joint war plan, originally written a decade ago to deter North Korea. EFE
