SEOUL, April 19 (Yonhap) -- South Korean Defense Minister Han Min-koo on Wednesday stressed the importance of real combat training for his troops as he visited the Army's major battle training field.

"It's the military's natural duty to focus on actual combat-like training in order to become stronger under the grim security conditions," Han said during the tour of the Korea Combat Training Center in Gangwon Province.

Soldiers train at the mountainous site with the multiple integrated laser engagement system (MILES) in various combat scenarios.

The minister said the military needs to step up efforts to further develop a brigade-level combat training system.
