Chinese rappers warn S. Korea on US missile defense system

Shares in Lotte Shopping 023530.KS reversed earlier losses to rise 1.5 percent, while Hotel Shilla 008770.KS , South Korea's second-largest duty free store operator, rose 2.8 percent. "This is serious. These threats are not welcome, '" Haley told reporters ahead of the council meeting.

South Korea's newly-elected president said Wednesday that the possibility of a conflict with North Korea is high.

Those conditions do not provide much incentive for the North Koreans to try and have talks with the US. "But as we know, it's very unlikely for North Korea to say or do anything meaningful in nuclear front, rather they will keep modernizing and advancing nuclear capabilities".

Under the leadership of third-generation dictator Kim Jong Un, North Korea has been speeding up its pursuit of a decades-long goal of developing nuclear-armed missiles capable of reaching the US mainland.

"That's what we are working on now".

"What has strike us dumb is the new South Korean government ignoring the historical meaning of this test launch, agreeing enthusiastically with outsiders", KCNA said in a Korean- language dispatch. "Absolutely, sanctions is something that we are looking at and we are going to continue to see where that takes us".

"The successful test-fire of Hwasong-12 is of special significance in ensuring peace and stability in the Korean peninsula, and it is the greatest victory of the Korean people", Xinhau news agency quoted a Foreign Ministry spokesman as saying on Tuesday.

Following today's demonstration, the Qualcomm Halo DEVC system will be handed over to VEDECOM to perform tests for FABRIC. Steve Pazol, vice president and general manager, Wireless Charging, Qualcomm Incorporated, said, "We are inventors".

"It is actually North Korea trying to intimidate the global community", Haley said, "and Russian Federation itself should be concerned because that ballistic missile test was a signal to South Korea for their new elections, it was a signal to Russian Federation in how close it got, it was a signal to Japan being in the region, and it was a signal to us".

The press statement from the U.N.'s most powerful body said its 15 members agreed to "take further significant measures including sanctions, in line with the council's previously expressed determination".

Uruguayan Ambassador Elbio Rosselli, the current council president, said after the meeting that members are united in condemning the latest missile launch as "a serious threat to worldwide peace".

In all, six sets of sanctions have been imposed on North Korea since it first tested an atomic device in 2006. North Korea has also launched satellites into orbit on long-range rockets that share some of the same technology as missiles.

In Washington, A USA defense official told AFP the missile fired on Sunday appeared to be a liquid-fueled KN-17, marking what appeared to be the most successful launch of such a device. Joseph Bermudez Jr. an analyst at the United States firm Allsource Analysis said to the Wall Street Journal: "What's more concerning is not an individual test or two individual tests, it's that they're approaching their missile development in a very pragmatic way".

NYT sources speculated the WannaCry ransomware attack might have been timed to coincide with last weekend's missile launch as a demonstration of North Korean power, or possibly even as pushback against China, which has been applying an extraordinary amount of pressure against its client state in Pyongyang of late.
