Seoul: South Korean President Park Geun-hye said on Tuesday the leak of data from the country`s nuclear operator was a "grave situation" that was unacceptable as a matter of national security.

"Nuclear power plants are first-class security installations that directly impacts the safety of the people," Park said at a cabinet meeting, according to her office. 

"A grave situation that is unacceptable has developed when there should have been not a trace of lapse as a matter of national security," she said.
