Democratic Party representative Lee Cheol-hee reportedly cited unidentified defence officials as saying the hackers stole the plans past year.

However, North Korea accused South Korea of "fabricating" the hack.

One of the documents was a plan to assassinate North Korea's leader Kim Jong-un and other senior members of the regime in Pyongyang. He said that 235 gigabytes worth of military documents were taken with the content of almost 80 percent of them yet to be identified.

"We are in the process of upping the ante and increasing pressure on North Korea to change its behavior", Matthew J. Matthews, deputy assistant secretary of state for East Asian and Pacific affairs, told reporters last week.

In the midst of these developments, Donald Trump, the US President recently told that "only one thing will work" with Kim Jong-Un.
