Trump willing to use engagement on N.Korea crisis -S.Korea envoy

They were referring to a recent meeting between US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Asean officials in Washington, during which Tillerson called on Asean countries to degrade diplomatic ties and cut interactions with North Korea.

Admiral Harry Harris Jr, who is in charge of the United States Pacific Command based in Hawaii, said on Wednesday (17 May) that North Korean leader Kim Jong-un was inching closer to developing a nuclear warhead capable of striking any country.

The U.S. government's tendency to dismiss or outright deny North Korea's true threat boggles Patalon, because he knows the rate of progression of North Korea's weapons advancements - from the dynasty's sub-launched ballistic missiles (SLBMs) program to its hyper-sonic glider creation.

Communications were severed by the North past year, Lee said, in the wake of new sanctions following North Korea's fifth nuclear test and Pyongyang's decision to shut down a joint industrial zone operated inside the North.

U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley said the United States was working with China, Pyongyang's main ally, on a new sanctions resolution and warned that all countries must step up action against North Korea or face measures themselves. Hong said South Korea had not yet received official word from Washington on whether Seoul should pay for a US anti-missile system that has been deployed outside Seoul.

"We had a serious discussion but I find it uncomfortable to say more about it", Moon said, adding that both sides expressed their positions.

But Kim Dong-yub, professor at South Korea's Kyungnam University, told local media that they'd be lucky to reach Alaska or Hawaii, at best.

A missile with a range of 1,000 km (620 miles), such as the extended-range Scud, or Scud-ER, would only have a flight time of about 12 minutes if flown on a slightly lofted trajectory that traveled 700 km. Third, dialogue with North Korea is possible when the circumstances are right.

The Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) and the North's threats are expected to be high on the agenda when Moon meets US President Donald Trump in June.

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.

The comments come just days after North Korea tested its latest missile, which was described by experts as its most successful so far, and one that the North said was capable of carrying a large nuclear warhead.

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. The Security Council condemned the test.

North Korea's nuclear and missile technology development has been met with condemnation from the global community, not least from neighboring countries. Similarly, Beijing has stopped supplying critically-needed fuel oil to the North, a clear demonstration of China's displeasure at North Korea's ongoing weapons tests.

"It is similar to North Korea's backdoor malicious codes", said Simon Choi, a senior researcher with Hauri who has done extensive research into North Korea's hacking capabilities and advises South Korean police and National Intelligence Service. Its ambassador to China said in Beijing on Monday it would continue such test launches "any time, any place".
