US admiral: North Korea's actions 'recipe for disaster'

The United States will further strengthen sanctions on North Korea and go after third-country entities supporting the communist regime, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said Tuesday.

North Korea's missile programme is progressing faster than expected, South Korea's defence minister said on Tuesday, hours after the UNSC demanded that the North halt all nuclear and ballistic missile tests and condemned Sunday's test-launch.

Haley's comments came as the UN Security Council met to discuss how to respond to North Korea's latest ballistic missile test over the weekend.

DPRK are the initials of North Korea's official name, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.

He has shown a willingness to challenge the United States, saying that Seoul should reconsider its deployment of an advanced US missile defense system to better cope with North Korean threats.

"It is considered an IRBM (intermediate range ballistic missile) of enhanced calibre compared to Musudan missiles that have continually failed", he said, referring to a class of missile created to travel up to 3,000 to 4,000 km.

Earlier this month naval exercises were conducted in the Sea of Japan (East Sea) by the aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson, with South Korean and Japanese aircraft also taking part. He added that the radar had a detection range of between 600 to 800 kilometers, but was that he not sure at what distance the North's missile was detected, according the to the USA military report.

Arsenal must maintain focus during final games, says Wenger
But a win over fellow top-four hopefuls Manchester United on Sunday was followed up with a first win at St Mary's since 2003. Mary's Stadium was right wing back Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain limping off injured in the 36th minute.

The U.S. will ramp up pressure on the North in every possible way, Haley said.

U.S. President Donald Trump has said he wants South Korea to pay for the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) anti-missile system, which detected Sunday's test launch.

His remarks came after Microsoft's chief legal officer Brad Smith said the US National Security Agency had developed the original code used in the attack, which was later leaked in a document dump.

Any country that did not look at putting new sanctions on North Korea was, in effect, helping the isolated nation, she said.

"First, the ultimate goal is to completely dismantle the North Korean nuclear weapons", he said. He continued, "We'll know them when we see them, but right now we certainly do not see the right conditions in light of the provocations", adding, "we would like to see concrete movement to reduce the threat".

"The government has kept the stance that the inter-Korean dialogue channel should be reopened". It is rare for USA strike groups to stay in the region for more than a week or two.
