South Korea urges Pyongyang to reopen communication channels

South Korea and the United States have agreed to use all means, "including sanctions and dialogue", to try to persuade North Korea to give up its nuclear-weapons program, the South's presidential office said Tuesday after a meeting with an aide to President Donald Trump.
South Korea and the U.S. say it is necessary to guard against North Korea's missile and nuclear weapons activities that threaten South Korea, Japan, U.S. territories and possibly even the continental United States.
The two countries also confirmed that Moon and Trump shared four broad principles in dealing with the North Korean nuclear crisis, Yoon said. Earlier in the day, he met Japanese leaders to discuss Pyongyang's missile and nuclear programmes.
"If you are a country that is supplying or supporting North Korea, we will call you out on it", Haley said.
China has been infuriated by the US deployment of the THAAD system in South Korea, saying it was a threat to its security and would do nothing to ease tensions with Pyongyang. Those relatively few North Koreans who are fortunate to own cars saw this with their own eyes last month, as fears that China would decrease exports of oil sent gasoline prices skyrocketing by as much as 83 percent.
On Monday, North Korea's regime issued a statement claiming that its new rocket could deliver a "large heavy nuclear warhead" all the way to the United States mainland.
"We are living in the reality where there is a high possibility of military clashes" along the disputed sea border off the Koreas' west coast or along the heavily-fortified land frontier that divides them, he said.
"We're willing to work with South Korea to preserve the hard-won results, properly handle disputes, put China-South Korea relations back onto a normal track and benefit both peoples on the basis of mutual understanding and mutual respect", he said.
China has strongly opposed THAAD, saying it can spy into its territory, and South Korean companies have been hit in China by a nationalist backlash over the deployment.
But a senior North Korean diplomat has said Pyongyang is also open to having talks with Washington under the right conditions. The North is counting on that dynamic to drive a wedge between the states with stakes in Northeast Asia - South Korea, China, Russia, Japan and the USA - that are crucial to the success of any campaign to force Pyongyang to negotiate. Although he has sometimes criticized the THAAD deployment, Moon has not said he will remove it.
Such moves underscore a willingness on the part of China's Communist Party leaders to fan the flames of anti-South Korea sentiment, said Korea expert Sung-Yoon Lee of Tufts University in MA. Many of them had multiple thermo-nuclear warheads.
