Turkey condemned North Korea's latest missile test on Monday and called on the isolated state to stop its "provocative behaviour".

A spokesman for Seoul's Joint Chiefs of Staff told reporters that South Korean and USA intelligence authorities "assess that North Korea secured meaningful data in advancing the reliability of its missile technology through yesterday's missile launch". Yonhap News reported that South Korea fired about 90 machine gun rounds across the border, and was checking whether the object was a drone.

Recently, U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson visited the heavily militarized border between the rival Koreas.

US-based experts said the Pukguksong-2 would have a maximum range of about 1,500 km (930 miles) and questioned North Korea's assertion that the reliability of the solid-fuel missile had been proven, given limited testing.

Sunday's test marked North Korea's eleventh missile test this year and the second test in the past week.

The North's official KCNA news agency, citing the spokesman for the foreign ministry, said the country had "substantially displayed" the capabilities for mounting a nuclear attack on Hawaii and Alaska and had built full capabilities for attacking the US mainland.

U.S. President Donald Trump has warned that a "major, major conflict" with North Korea is possible over its weapons programmes, although U.S. officials say tougher sanctions, not military force, are the preferred option to counter the North Korean threat.

The country's foreign ministry said the North's latest launch "throws cold water" on the expectations by Moon's government to "stabilize peace and denuclearize the Korean Peninsula".

President Trump Remarks At Arrival Ceremony In Israel
US President Donald Trump has begun a visit to Israel by warning of the threat posed by Iran if it acquires nuclear weapons. During the campaign, Trump pledged to move the embassy to Jerusalem , but has since walked back that promise.


North Korea has defied all UN Security Council demands to end its missile program, which is seen as part of an effort to build a rocket capable of carrying a nuclear weapon.

North Korea said Monday it is ready to start mass-producing a new medium-range missile after a weekend test-launch confirmed its combat readiness.

During the liberal administration of President Roh Moo-hyun in 2003-2008, civic groups held summit anniversary events in Seoul and Pyongyang.

Pyongyang has defied all calls to rein in its nuclear and missile programs, even from China, its lone major ally, saying the weapons are needed for defence against USA aggression.

The council diplomats say the closed discussion was requested by the United States, Japan and South Korea and will take place Tuesday.

But the issue of resuming the Kaesong Industrial Complex and a joint tour program at Mount Kumgang on the North's east coast could spark a dispute over whether it violates United Nations sanctions resolutions that ban the transfer of large amounts of money. The weapon is a two-stage, solid-fueled, canister-launched missile fired from a road-mobile Transporter Erector Launcher (TEL).

The test suggests progress in the North's stated aim to build intercontinental missiles capable of hitting U.S. targets.

North Korea denied any involvement and accused the South of "fabricating" evidence.
