South says North Korea's latest missile test is bigger threat

The months-long nuclear standoff between Kim and Trump has fueled concerns of another conflict, but even some Trump advisers say USA military options are limited when Pyongyang could launch an artillery barrage on the South Korean capital, Seoul, which is about 50km from the border and home to 10 million people. "And I don't mean 'Big for North Korea.' Only a few countries can produce missiles of this size, and North Korea just joined the club".

North Korea said in its announcement of the launch on Wednesday that the Hwasong-15 had been fired from a domestically made erector-launcher vehicle and Duitsman confirmed that the photos back the claim up.

Kang and Japanese Foreign Minister Taro Kono discussed her possible visit during a telephone conversation two days earlier over North Korea's long-range missile launch, and agreed to have their ministries arrange detailed schedules of the visit, according to sources.

The United States and South Korea hold annual large scale military drills over the alleged threat from the DPRK's nuclear and missile programs.




China is a historic ally and North Korea's most important trading partner and Pyongyang is thought to be dependent on China for much of its oil supplies.

"The Chinese Envoy, who just returned from North Korea, seems to have had no impact on Little Rocket Man", Trump said in a tweet. This is important given the calls for a tightening of global sanctions against North Korea. It showed a capacity to improve upon its existing designs and to design new missiles independently.

According to the ImageSat analysts, who are closely following North Korean military activity, this is "the first time that they have chose to rebuild a site that they have used before". "We are stuck. We have to adapt to North Korea as a nuclear power, and we will actually". However, North Korea's leader Kim Jong-un called the launch "impeccable" and a "breakthrough". While Haley remarked that the "North Korean regime will be utterly destroyed" in such a war, she neglected to mention the damage that South Korea, and possibly the U.S., could also face from a North Korean nuclear attack.
