The South Korean government has renamed its ‘three axis’ defence strategy amid efforts to ease tensions with neighbouring North Korea, according to the Yonhap News Agency.


The media outlet reported on 10 January that the new name, roughly translated as ‘system to respond to nuclear and other weapons of mass destruction (WMD)’, appears intended to mitigate a sense of deep hostility infused in the previous name.

The defence strategy is aimed at countering threats posed by North Korea’s development of ballistic missiles and nuclear weapons. It envisages the development and acquisition of a range of interlinked capabilities and assets intended to provide a comprehensive defence and deterrence system.
