North Korea diplomat in Iran: CIA attempted to kill leader

South Korea's president-elect Moon Jae-in thanks supporters at Gwanghwamun Square in Seoul South Korea

"The South Korean authorities have to draw a serious lesson from the wretched fate of traitor Park Geun-hye", the KCNA reported in English Thursday, "who met a miserable end while vociferating about "nuclear threat from the North" and going keen on hurting the fellow countrymen with the help of outsiders that only think [of] inflicting nuclear disaster on the nation".

He told a news conference Friday that if the Trump administration wants peace on the Korean Peninsula it should replace the Armistice Agreement that ended the 1950-53 Korean War with a peace accord and stop its anti-North Korea policy.

Though the U.S. president has said that a "major, major" conflict with the North is possible, he has also said he would be "honored" to meet North Korean leader Kim Jong-un under unspecified circumstances.

The reclusive North, which has defied all calls to rein in its weapons programs, even from its lone major ally, China, has been working on a missile, mounted with a nuclear warhead, capable of striking the United States mainland.

Both Trump and new South Korean President Moon Jae-in have expressed a willingness to engage in dialogue with Pyongyang on the condition that the North first show a commitment to denuclearization.

He said North Korea "probably learned a lot" from last weekend's test. They went to a very high apogee.

However, NBC news, citing two USA defense officials, reported Friday that the re-entry vehicle had re-entered the atmosphere as planned.

Regarding the May 14 launch of the missile, the official Korean Central News Agency claimed: "It also verified the homing feature of the warhead under the worst reentry situation and accurate performance of a detonation system".

Secretary of Russia Security Council Nikolai Patrushev has accused the world powers of pushing North Korea towards the development and nuclear weapons and other ballistic missile assets.

Before an emergency meeting of the council Tuesday, U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley declared: "You either support North Korea or you don't, but you have to choose".

"Nuclear North Korea is a cause of concern for the global community and Russian Federation is also concerned as this country borders it and we can not but be puzzled when they develop their missile technologies and nuclear potential, this concerns us", TASS quoted Patrushev as saying. The test triggered a new US -backed push for a fresh round of United Nations sanctions against the North.
