SOUTH Korea’s newly appointed Marine Corps commander has called on his 30,000 troops to defend the country “at all costs” as North Korea’s aggression intensifies.

Lt. Gen. Jun Jin-goo called on his unit to be ready at all times for an offensive from Kim Jong-un’s forces – and to be prepared to lay down their lives securing the border.

He said: “The Marine Corps has protected places most difficult to defend, but this should be done at all costs.”

But the incoming military chief has raised concerns over access to key equipment – including the force’s limited number of amphibious landing vehicles.

Lt. Gen. Lee added: “I think the adequate supply of such platforms is more important than the number of marines for effective combat operations.

“Certainly, our marines are short of independently possessed equipment that can be mobilised promptly in case of contingency situations.”

It comes as China and the US ramp up their military presence around North Korea amid fears a showdown with Pyongyang is imminent.
