South Korea admitted its plan to have the leader of North Korea, Kim Jong-Un, assassinated should they feel threatened of a nuclear attack.

The revelation came from the South Korea's defense minister Han Min-Koo, during a parliamentary session last Wednesday in Seoul. He also disclosed that they have an elite group armed with a special strategy that is ready for an assault anytime. His candid admission and confirmation that a plan is in place came out as a surprise to some.

CNN quoted the South Korean official as saying, "South Korea has a general idea and plan to use precision missile capabilities to target the enemy's facilities in major areas as well as eliminating the enemy's leadership."

According to the NY Daily News, military experts and activists from the international community are deeply concerned of North Korea's upgrading of its   nuclear tests in the past few weeks. The fifth and most powerful among the nuclear tests conducted was on Sep. 9.

Minister Han added that the operation of South Korea's elite troops to target the North Korea's leader, Kim Jong-Un,  would be a part of the 'Korea Massive Punishment and Retaliation' (KMPR) plan.

The defense ministry of South Korea said they are gearing for the "worst case scenario" as they expect North Korea to hold its sixth nuclear test.

In a meeting held a week ago between the foreign ministers of South Korea, Japan, the U. S. Secretary of State and the United Nations General Assembly, they commented that the most recent nuclear test of North Korea "would not be left unanswered."

Conservative activists also set the portrait of North Korean Kim Jong-Un on fire in protest of the nuclear test in South Korea conducted this month.

This was condemned by the US, Japan and South Korea as they likewise long for the new and effective measures by which the communist state will be isolated.
