South Korea's defense minister said Wednesday that Seoul will enlarge its conventional arsenal to deal with a potentially nuclear-armed North Korea. "If North Korea really has the (nuclear) capabilities, we will improve and enlarge the number of conventional weapons as long as it doesn't violate the principle of denuclearization," Defense Minister Yoon Kwang-ung told parliament. "We will supplement (our ability) to conduct precision strikes against storage facilities and intercept delivery means, while also improving the system of having military units and individuals defend themselves," he said.
