South Korea PM says possibility of North Korea provocation high - defence minister

SEOUL (Reuters) - South Korean Prime Minister Hwang Kyo-ahn said on Friday the possibility of provocation by North Korea was high, after parliament voted to impeach President Park Geun-hye, the South's defence ministry said.

Hwang, who is acting president while the country's Constitutional Court reviews the impeachment motion, made the comment in a telephone call to the defence minister, the ministry said.
