Korean officials meet in attempt to repair ties

20 May, 2017, 00:33 | Author: Jan Cross

Admiral Harry Harris, in discussing a stronger world response to North Korea's nuclear weapons program, stated, according to the Diplomat, "I firmly believe that the United States, Japan, South Korea, Australia, China, Russia and every nation who considers itself to be a responsible contributor to worldwide security, must publicly and privately work together to bring Kim Jong-Un to his senses, not to his knees".

The claim, if true, could mark an advancement in the North's ICBM program exceeding most expectations, said Kim Dong-yub, a professor at Kyungnam University's Institute of Far Eastern Studies in Seoul. Haley said that the United States and China are working together on a new resolution targeting North Korea:"That's what we are working on now". An IRBM has a range up to 3,000 to 4,000 kilometers (1,860 to 2,485 miles). The North Koreans sent a rocket high into space, testing the conditions an intercontinental ballistic missile would need to survive and signaling the outlaw nation's potential to destabilize global security. "This is the way you really learn how to develop a ballistic missile, and that's what worries me".

North Korea's deputy U.N. ambassador says the country will rapidly strengthen its nuclear strike capability as long as the United States maintains its "hostile policy" toward the country.

Seoul and Washington have argued that the missile system is aimed at North Korean aggression, while China sees it as a threat to its own security. "We're going to make sure we put the pressure on them economically, diplomatically, politically and internationally".

North Korea has maintained that the missile test was in response to the nuclear dangers and threats posed by the US and its allies.

Wang expounded on China's position on the deployment of the U.S. Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) missile defense system, urging the ROK to correctly deal with China's major and reasonable concern. US Disarmament Ambassador Robert Wood said yesterday that China's leverage was key.

Tillerson was also quoted as saying he hopes the North will take chances and "trust the US".

State Councilor Yang Jiechi made the remarks at the opening of a second day of meetings between Chinese officials and special envoy Lee Hae-chan, a former South Korean prime minister.

But Lee also said South Korean officials at Panmunjom have been "making phone calls on a daily basis to the North but the North has not responded". Although he has sometimes criticized the THAAD deployment, Moon has not said he will remove it. However, it is already in place and working. "There is no reason for North Korea to be having these actions outside of the fact they just choose to do so".

North Korea carried out another ballistic missile test last Sunday (May 14), resisting calls to suspend its weapons program.
