China's Politburo shows its age at the 19th Party Congress. Charles Burton @gordongchang

SEOUL (Reuters) - South Korea expects North Korea to engage in more provocative action next month to coincide with the anniversary of the founding of its communist party and China's all-important 19th party congress.

In a meeting with President Moon Jae In on Thursday (Sept 28), national security adviser Chung Eui Yong said he expected Pyongyang to act around Oct 10 and 18, but gave no details. China's 19th party congress, which will see Chinese President Xi Jinping unveiling a new leadership, starts on Oct 18.

"(Chung's report) also said there are worries over military conflict being sparked by accidental incidents," said Park Wan Ju, lawmaker and head spokesman of the ruling Democratic Party.
