S. Korea monitoring N. Korea for potential provocations amid key anniversaries: Official Updated: 2017-10-07 14:45:50 KST

No clear signs yet, but South Korea remains on guard.
That's the word out of the presidential office in Seoul amid fears North Korea might conduct a provocation ahead of the founding anniversary of its ruling party.
There are two key days to keep an eye on.
Firstly, Sunday marks exactly 20 years since late former leader Kim Jong-il's rise to general secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea.
Also identified is this coming Tuesday -- October 10th -- as that's the 72nd anniversary of the party's founding.
An official at the Blue House says the government is monitoring the situation, given the possibility of provocations around those dates.
However, the same official said there have been no unusual movements signaling a possible provocation.
South Korea has vowed to respond sternly to any act of aggression in close coordination with the U.S. and the international community.
