South Korea's New President Sees 'High Possibility' Of Conflict With North Korea

Chinese rappers warn S. Korea on US missile defense system

Hong, chairman of the Korean Peninsula Forum and a former US ambassador, led the Korean delegation to Washington Wednesday, the first meeting of an envoy of the new Moon administration with Trump. The president extended the olive branch during an interview with Bloomberg News.

Later in the song, they refer to South Korea, saying, "this time, kid, you're going too far" and "your big brother's annoyed", a nod to China's view of itself as the pre-eminent political and economic power in northeast Asia.

"I will quickly move to solve the crisis in national security". I will go to Beijing, and I will go to Tokyo.

After the meeting, the council president, Uruguay's Ambassador Elbio Rosselli, said that "clearly sanctions are a way to go", but stressed support for diplomacy to engage with Pyongyang.

Mr. Moon's comments came hours after the South, which hosts 28,500 U.S. troops, said it wanted to reopen a channel of dialogue with North Korea as the South Korean president seeks a two-track policy involving sanctions and dialogue to try to rein in its neighbor.

However, North Korea does not seem willing to stop its missile launches, including nuclear ones. The Musudan is one of the most advanced missiles that Pyongyang has tested successfully.

Council diplomats, speaking on a condition of anonymity because the consultations were private, said China never mentioned working with the United States on a new sanction resolution, and both China and Russian Federation said they supported a negotiated solution through dialogue.

" ... The most flawless weapon systems in the world will never become the eternal exclusive property of the USA ... the US should not ... disregard or misjudge the reality that its mainland and Pacific operation region are in (North Korea's) sighting range for strike". The U.S., meanwhile, has condemned North Korea's continued nuclear and missile testing. The missile would have flown some 4,5oo kilometers if launched on a maximum trajectory.

Not surprisingly, there was global condemnation, including harsh words from the Trump White House.

North Korea submitted the patent application to a United Nations agency, the World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO), for processing.

North Korea is also stepping up diplomatic actions to seek support and understanding from other countries over its missile launch. And despite United Nations' economic sanctions against a country that has always been shrouded in secrecy, Kim remains undaunted.

North Korea has made no secret of the fact that it is working to develop a nuclear-tipped missile capable of striking the U.S. mainland and has ignored calls to halt its nuclear and missile programmes, even from China, its lone major ally.

However, in his inaugural speech last week, Moon said he will visit Washington with speed, adding he will hold a North Korea summit "if circumstances permit". "(Seoul) must show that dialogue is possible only when North Korea changes its behavior".

The Russia leader is obviously blind to the reality that exists in the Korean Peninsula.
