US Admiral: North Korea's Actions 'Recipe for Disaster'

North Korea will rapidly strengthen its nuclear strike capability as long as the United States maintains its "hostile policy" toward the country, the country's deputy U.N. ambassador said Friday. "This is a true threat to every country in the world".

Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi meets with Lee Hae-chan, special envoy of the President of the Republic of Korea (ROK) Moon Jae-in, in Beijing, capital of China, May 18, 2017.

The United States said on Tuesday it believed it could persuade China to impose new UN sanctions on North Korea and warned that Washington would also target and "call out" countries supporting Pyongyang.

Han Min-koo, speaking to his nation's parliament, said that North Korea's test of the Hwasong-12 rocket was "successful", and explained that the missile "is considered an intermediate range ballistic missile (IRBM) of enhanced caliber".

North Korea has made no secret of the fact that it is working to develop a nuclear-tipped missile capable of striking the USA mainland and has ignored calls to rein in its nuclear and missile programmes, even from China, its lone major ally.

Trump has said "a major, major conflict" with North Korea is possible and all options are on the table but that he wants to resolve the crisis diplomatically, possibly through the extended use of economic sanctions.

"We now need to apply pressure on North Korea, and Japan and the United States need to coordinate closely so as to apply pressure", Abe told reporters.

Shares in Lotte Shopping reversed earlier losses to rise 1.5 percent, while Hotel Shilla, South Korea's second-largest duty free store operator, rose 2.8 percent. China's Foreign Ministry, in a later statement on its website, said Wang "fully explained" China's position on THAAD and asked South Korea to handle China's reasonable concerns appropriately.

China urged the United States and North Korea to commit to a political decision to solve the "nuclear problem".

"What about North Korea intimidating us?" They're intimidating the entire global community.

South Korea's newly inaugurated President Moon Jae-in has admitted that there was a "high possibility" of a war with North Korea over the latter's ongoing provocations, even though he is known to favor engagement rather than a harsher stance vis-à-vis Kim Jong-un's regime.

North Korea's new strategic ballistic missile, called Hwasong-12, was sacked on Sunday and flew 489 miles on a trajectory reaching an altitude of 1,312 miles, North Korean official news agency KCNA said, according to Reuters.

Haley noted that this weekend's missile came within 60 miles of Russia's border and said Russian Federation is "all wrong".

The claim, if true, could mark an advancement in the North's ICBM program exceeding most expectations, said Kim Dong-yub, a professor at Kyungnam University's Institute of Far Eastern Studies in Seoul. The threat from Pyongyang presents U.S. President Donald Trump with one of his greatest security challenges.
