SEOUL, Aug. 10 (Yonhap) -- South Korea's military warned Thursday that North Korea will pay a harsh price for an attack on the South or its ally the United States.

The Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) issued the strongly worded message in response to the North's continued war rhetoric, including a threat to fire ballistic missiles toward Guam.

Should the North ignore the warning and provoke, it will face "the allies' strong and resolute retaliation," Army Col. Roh Jae-cheon, the JCS spokesman, said in a statement.
