Seoul sends warning of 'strong response' to North Korea

In his New Year address, the South Korean president has warned that any military aggression by North Korea would be met with a 'strong and stern' response.

However Lee Myung-Bak added that the door to dialogue remains open.

The comments came two days after the North called for an end to confrontation with the South following one of the most violent years on the divided peninsula.
