China says hopes new South Korean government will correct problems

19 May 2017

"We are going to send a very strong, unified message to North Korea", Haley said on Tuesday.

North Korea has maintained that the missile test was in response to the nuclear dangers and threats posed by the US and its allies.

The North has staged two atomic tests and dozens of missile tests in its quest to build a missile capable of delivering a nuclear warhead to the USA mainland.

It comes as South Korean President Moon Jae-in said there was a "high possibility" of conflict with North Korea, which is pressing ahead with nuclear and missile programmes it says are needed to counter USA aggression.

US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley (C) answers a question during a press briefing as Japanese Ambassador Koro Bessho (L) and South Korean Ambassador Tae-yul Cho listen before a Security Council meeting on the situation in North Korea, May 16, 2017 at United Nations headquarters in NY.

Communications were severed by the North previous year, Lee said, in the wake of new sanctions following North Korea's last nuclear test and Pyongyang's decision to shut down a joint industrial zone operated inside the North. "Look", he will tell his people, "not even the United Nations can stop me".

State Department Condemns Turkish Security's Attack on Protesters in D.C.
Tuesday's attack was not the first incident where Erdoagan's security has been involved in violently clashing with protesters. Another video shared on social media Thursday showed Erdogan watching the melee unfold from the backseat of his vehicle.

On the respected 38 North website, aerospace engineering specialist John Schilling said it appeared to be an intermediate-range ballistic missile that could "reliably strike the US base at Guam" in the Pacific, 3,400 kilometres away.

South Korea's President Moon Jae-in visited on Wednesday the Ministry of National Defense and Joint Chiefs of Staff where he was briefed on the current military situation in the country.

Lee's trip comes at a time when the ties between the two countries have been impacted by the deployment in South Korea of the US Terminal High Altitude Area Defense, or THAAD, anti-missile system over Beijing's objections.

A North Korean diplomat, Ju Yong Choi, told the U.N. Conference on Disarmament in Geneva yesterday that North Korea would "bolster its self-defense capabilities as long as the United States continues its hostile policies ... and imposes nuclear threats and makes blackmail".

Wright's organization is one that's been especially vocal about the GDM system, saying in a lengthy report (all of which you can read here) that "In its current form, strategic missile defense is a waste of resources at best and risky at worst.It is not a reliable defense under real-world conditions; by promoting it as a solution to nuclear conflict, USA officials complicate diplomatic efforts overseas, and perpetuate a false sense of security that could harm the U.S. public".

The council demanded North Korea halt its tests and said it was ready to impose further sanctions. Since it would be awkward for both sides if they end up disagreeing about approaches to the North Korean nuclear issue in their first summit, they are expected to do their best to reach a general agreement during this meeting that emphasizes that they are on the same page.

U.S. Disarmament Ambassador Wood said China was key given that 90 percent of North Korea's trade was with that country.

The video — viewed by Wednesday more than 300,000 times on Facebook and Twitter and nearly 2.7 million times on the Chinese video-posting site Maiopai — represents the latest example of China's use of non-diplomatic channels to broadcast its displeasure with South Korea.

The Security Council first imposed sanctions on North Korea in 2006 and has stiffened them in response to its five nuclear tests and two long-range rocket launches.

Mr Schiller added that it remains unknown whether Pyongyang actually has a working nuclear warhead as opposed to "just some nuclear device that goes boom in a tunnel, under laboratory conditions".

Trump has said "a major, major conflict" with North Korea was possible and all options were on the table but wanted to resolve the crisis diplomatically and peacefully, possibly through the use of economic sanctions.
