UNITED NATIONS: A whisper to North Korea

Xi told Moon's representative Lee Hae-chan on Friday that his visit showed the importance the new South Korean leader attached to relations with Beijing.

Pyongyang carried out two atomic tests previous year, and has accelerated its missile launch programme, despite tough United Nations sanctions aimed at denying leader Kim Jong-un the hard currency needed to fund his weapons ambitions.

Both Symantec and Kaspersky, however, said it was too early to tell whether North Korea was involved in the attacks, based on the evidence that was published on Twitter by Google security researcher Neel Mehta.

Kim said this US policy is "the root cause of all problems".

This data underlines the progress made by Pyongyang in its efforts to develop an intercontinental nuclear missile in the future that can reach the USA and serve as a deterrent.

During the talks, Abe also referred to a protest lodged Wednesday by Tokyo with Seoul after a South Korean research vessel was spotted operating in Japan's exclusive economic zone west of the Takeshima islets without obtaining Tokyo's consent, according to a Japanese government source.

A recent failed underwater missile launch by Iran had the USA again looking at the military cooperation between Iran and North Korea.

On Wednesday, Moon said he would never tolerate North Korea's nuclear and missile provocations, and called on military readiness of a "combined U.S".

In Seoul, some citizens expressed frustration.

Speaking to the Associated Press about what would happen in the event of a nuclear strike from the North, scientist David Wright, of the UCS Global Security Program, and rocket analyst Markus Schiller, of ST Analytics in Germany, described how the drama would unfold. The test precipitated the first meeting of Moon's national security council.

Haley said while President Donald Trump is still open to talk with Kim, "Having a missile test is not the way to sit down with the president, because he's absolutely not going to do it".

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 United States of America base at Guam" in the Pacific, 3,400 kilometres away. The missile, which was launched on Sunday, was reportedly travelling approximately 800kms i.e. 500 miles at a height of 2,000kms i.e. 1240 miles in a span of half-an-hour.

The United States and South Korea have said the deployment is aimed purely at defending against any threat from North Korea, which experts have thought for months is preparing for its sixth nuclear test in defiance of United Nations sanctions.

Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, who called the new South Korean leader to congratulate him on his recent election. Launched on a normal trajectory, the missile could have traveled 3,000 miles.
