North Korea condemns U.N. Sanctions

North Korea allies also under threat says US Pacific commander

North Korean diplomat Ju Yong-choi told the UN Conference on Disarmament on Tuesday, "The DPRK will bolster its self-defence capabilities as long as the United States continues its hostile policies towards the DPRK and imposes nuclear threats and makes blackmail".

Haley previously indicated that new sanctions could target oil, a critical import for North Korea mainly from China, and she said Tuesday the USA also wants sanctions on organizations and businesses in countries that are helping Pyongyang.

However, South Korea's new president Moon Jae-in wants to engage with the North and soothe tensions between the USA and China.

Greeting South Korean presidential envoy Lee Hae-Chan in Beijing, Foreign Minister Wang Yi said bilateral relations have made enormous progress over the years.

He added that China hopes South Korea's new government will "correct the problems" and take measures as soon as possible.

The special envoy dispatched by South Korea's new President Moon Jae-In said in Tokyo that Seoul wants regular summits and improved relations, which have been hindered by the memory of Japan's harsh colonial rule of the Korean peninsula from 1910-1945.

North Korea has made no secret of its work to develop a nuclear-tipped missile capable of striking the United States and has ignored calls to halt its nuclear and missile programmes, even from China, its lone major ally.

The United States, which has 28,500 troops in South Korea to guard against the North Korean threat, has called on China to do more to rein in its neighbor.

North Korea launched Sunday what appeared to be its longest-range ballistic missile yet, saying it was capable of carrying a "heavy nuclear warhead" in a test aimed at bringing the U.S. mainland within reach.

Moon's envoy to China, former prime minister Lee Hae-chan, left for Beijing on Thursday with a letter from Moon to deliver to China President Xi Jinping. North Korea's testing of the new missile system may make it more hard for Moon to follow along the path of reconciliation, However, in his first key appointments Moon appointed supporters of the earlier Sunshine Policy of improving ties with the North, to the positions of prime minister and head of intelligence. "He said, however, that what he's willing to do is not talk for talk's sake but for talks that produce an outcome", the envoy said.

China has strongly demanded that South Korea scrap the deployment of THAAD, believing that the advanced defense system's radar would give the USA military the ability to spy on its territory.

The sides tentatively agreed to arrange the face-to-face talks between Moon and Xi on the sidelines of the Group of 20 conference in July in Hamburg, Germany. Fourteen years ago, he came as a representative of South Korea president Roh Moo-hyun.

"Stopping the deployment of THAAD is the bottom line of China", the newspaper said.

Mr Moon sent envoys to the United States, China, Japan and the European Union this week in what the government calls "pre-emptive diplomacy".
