Korea's Moon warns high chance of clashes with North

Korea's Moon warns high chance of clashes with North

Trump said he looked forward to working closely with Moon to resolve the North Korea nuclear issue, Hong said.

Kim singled out as "more serious" the push by the US for a new sanctions resolution and the Trump administration's demand for all countries "to decide whether they support for DPRK or U.S".

U.S. President Donald Trump said he supports peaceful engagement on the Korean peninsula but dialogue with North Korea would only take place under certain conditions. As Agence France-Press reported, Harris emphasized the danger of North Korea's recent launching of several ballistic missiles, the latest of which occurred last week when a missile landed in the Sea of Japan.

North Korea on Sunday test-fired a ballistic missile, which "accurately hit" the targeted open waters 787 km away after flying to a maximum altitude of 2,111.5 km.

At the Pentagon, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said the missile test showed North Korea isn't heeding cautions from the global community.

North Korea, also known as the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK), has vowed to develop a missile mounted with a nuclear warhead that can strike the mainland United States, saying the program is necessary to counter USA aggression.

Former US Rep. Anthony Weiner faces charges in sexting case
In court, the 52-year-old former Democratic congressman paused repeatedly as he fought back tears and tried to compose himself. A law enforcement official said Weiner has agreed to plead guilty to a charge of transferring obscene material to a minor.

The U.S. troop presence in South Korea, a legacy of the Korean War, is primarily to guard against the North Korean threat.

The U.N. Security Council first imposed sanctions on North Korea in 2006 and has strengthened the measures in response to the country's five nuclear tests and two long-range rocket launches. "You have to pick a side".

The comments came hours after the South, which hosts 28,500 USA troops, said it wanted to reopen a channel of dialogue with North Korea as Moon seeks a two-track policy, involving sanctions and dialogue, to try to rein in its neighbor.

President Donald Trump is looking to both China and Russian Federation, the two permanent members on the Security Council that have historically been most sympathetic to North Korea, to join the US -backed campaign of diplomatic and economic pressure on the North to get it to denuclearize.

North Korea's deputy U.N. envoy said on Friday that the United States needed to roll back its "hostile policy" toward the country before there could be talks between the pair.

If the United States "persists in anti-DPRK sanctions without understanding its rival, the (Trump) administration will have to take full responsibility for the ensuing catastrophic consequences", he warned.
