SEOUL, March 1 (Yonhap) -- President Park Geun-hye vowed to put pressure on North Korea unless Pyongyang abandons its nuclear program and ends its provocative behavior.

"We and the international community will continue to put pressure on North Korea unless the North shows its commitment to denuclearization... though our government will not shut the door for dialogue," Park said in a televised speech marking the 97th anniversary of the March 1 Independence Movement.

The Independence Movement on March 1, 1919 paved the way for Korea's independence from Japanese colonial rule, which lasted from 1910-45.
