South Korean President Lee Myung-bak visited an army unit Thursday to give a pep talk to soldiers on the front line as the country held massive firing drills near the border with the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK), Lee' s office Cheong Wa Dae said Thursday.

The president paid a visit to the front-line army unit in the city of Yanggu, Gangwon Province.

"We can prevent (the DPRK) from taking provocative acts through strong unity together with powerful response," Lee said during the visit.

His visit comes as the country conducted largest-ever joint firing drill between the Army and the Air Force near the land border with the DPRK. Another separate drill is ongoing in waters off the east coast of the Korean peninsula.
