  • North Korea allies also under threat says US Pacific commander

Yesterday, the US said it could persuade China to impose new United Nations sanctions on North Korea.

They were referring to a recent meeting between U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and ASEAN officials in Washington, during which Tillerson called on ASEAN countries to degrade diplomatic ties and cut commercial interactions with the DPRK.

North Korea's missile programme is progressing faster than expected, South Korea's defense minister said yesterday, hours after the UN Security Council demanded the North halt all nuclear and ballistic missile tests and condemned Sunday's test-launch. They scrutinize shipping traffic to parse whether the flow of oil and coal between North Korea and China might be diminishing, with potentially disastrous results for Kim Jong Un's regime.

South Korea's unification ministry expressed a need to reopen an inter-Korean communication hotline, which was severed early a year ago following North Korea's nuclear and missile tests. Third, dialogue with North Korea is possible when the circumstances are right.

North Korea has responded by holding more missile tests and cranking up the rhetoric.

The missile, which the North's media said can carry a heavy nuclear warhead, could reach the U.S. state of Hawaii if it was sacked on a normal trajectory, American experts warn.

South Korea's new president, Moon Jae-In, speaks during a press conference at the presidential Blue House in Seoul on May 10.

Donald Trump's speech to Israeli parliament scrapped amid concerns
Nevertheless, Lieberman said, "We are following developments and are aware and have ways of dealing with this". Trump made the remark alongside Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in a speech at the Israel Museum.


Yoon said Chung and Pottinger in their meeting reaffirmed that Seoul and Washington share a common goal in the "complete discarding" of North Korean nuclear weapons and will pursue "all methods, including sanctions and dialogue" to reach the goal.

The election of Moon Jae-in as South Korea's president marks the re-emergence of a major player that had been silenced for five crucial months because of the country's political paralysis, which ended with the impeachment and arrest of his conservative predecessor, Park Geun-hye.

North Korea has been under unrelenting pressure to rein in its nuclear programme, with the United States threatening to step up military force, the UN raising the possibility of tougher sanctions and even the country's sole ally China expressing growing frustration.

Hong said he handed Moon's letter to Trump and expressed thanks for supporting South Korea's security and inviting Moon to visit Washington. Presidential aides say the stance does not necessarily mean Moon is opposed to the deployment.

"Combining nuclear warheads with ballistic technology in the hands of a volatile leader like Kim Jong-un is a recipe for a disaster", AP cited Harris as saying. Pyongyang is threatening a sixth nuclear test.

"North Korea launched a missile four days ago and claims to have succeeded in launching an intermediate-range ballistic missile", Mr. Moon said. Earlier in the day, he met Japanese leaders to discuss Pyongyang's missile and nuclear programmes.

However, Pyongyang said its recent missile test-launch was a legitimate act of self-defence under global law and called USA criticism a "wanton violation of the sovereignty and dignity of the DPRK".
