Trump willing to use engagement on North Korea crisis: South Korea envoy

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.

According to the experts, a missile launched from North Korea could hit West Coast cities such as Seattle and Los Angeles in under 30 minutes and San Francisco in 33 to 34 minutes.

South Korea and the United States agreed during a visit to Seoul by Trump's national security advisers this week to formulate a "bold and pragmatic" joint approach, Cho added.

In the wake of North Korea's medium-range missile launch into the Sea of Japan on Saturday, the UNSC slammed the self-isolated country for "highly destabilizing behavior and flagrant and provocative defiance" it displays by turning a blind eye to multiple United Nations resolutions expressly prohibiting it from attempting such actions. Sunday's test was a success, however.

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 U.S. base at Guam" in the Pacific, 3,400 kilometres away. So let's stop antagonizing North Korea. All in all, it is a troubling development.

Moon sent envoys to the United States, China, Japan and the European Union this week in what the government calls "pre-emptive diplomacy". In fact, the US was under such threats in the Cold War from the Soviet Union, but even that far more formidable arsenal did not deter Washington from committing to the defense of its allies.

"If you are a country that is supplying or supporting North Korea, we will call you out on it", Haley said.

Ongoing activity and a large number of people have been spotted at North Korea's nuclear test site, the Punggye-ri Nuclear Test Facility, amid lingering concerns that the regime of leader Kim Jong-un could carry out its sixth nuclear test. Conflict or even war could well follow from such thinking.

Thousands of citizens gathered on Thursday to cheer on the scientists over the successful launch of Hwasong 12, the medium-range missile fired on Sunday, the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) said.

The Security Council is scheduled to hold closed-door consultations on the missile test on Tuesday.

If Seoul is troubled by that message, then Beijing must be angered. North Korea's test distracted from the message of peace and integration and reminded the world that China could not corral all its partners in support of its agenda.

Before leaving, Lee said a summit between Xi and Moon could happen as soon as July, on the sidelines of a Group of 20 meeting in Germany.

Communications were severed by the North past 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.
