Most South Koreans Doubt North Will Start a War

Most South Koreans Doubt North Will Start a War

Over the next two years, Kim formed the northern half of the Korean Peninsula into its own state, and by September 1948, had become the leader of the Supreme People's Assembly.

"I can say for sure that there will be no war on the Korean Peninsula again", Mr Moon said at a question-and-answer session, reiterating his earlier pledge not to allow South Korean ally United States to launch an attack on the North.

"The battery will be operational as soon as the US finishes its internal procedures", South Korean defence ministry spokesman Moon Sang-gyun told reporters.

There was no chance the xenon "will have an impact on South Korea's territory or population", the agency said.

US and South Korea agreed on the deployment of four additional missile launchers in July following North Korea's launch of an intercontinental ballistic missile.

North Korea announced that it had successfully detonated a hydrogen bomb on Sunday, its sixth and most powerful nuclear test so far.

North Korea said it would respond to any U.N. sanctions and USA pressure with "powerful counter measures", accusing the United States of aiming to start a war. "Defense authorities should also consider ways to nullify the North's missile capabilities through cyber attacks or interference by electromagnetic pulses". The July date refers to the intercontinental ballistic missile test.

Forced by the increasing threats from Pyongyang, the US and South Korea had announced they would deploy four more interceptor launchers.

He said on Thursday he would prefer not to use military action, but if he did, it would be a "very sad day" for North Korea. Such a multi-layered system will grant several opportunities for South Korea and the U.S.to intercept incoming North Korean missiles. "But I can tell you North Korea is behaving badly and it's got to stop". That area included waters between Japan and the Korean peninsula, she added, without giving any further details.

China and Russian Federation oppose the installation.

Dr Lee Seong Hyon of the Sejong Institute think-tank said China does not believe sanctions can solve the North Korean problem, but "feels compelled to show the image (of itself) as a responsible power".

THAAD, or Terminal High Altitude Area Defense, has come in for heavy criticism from residents concerned the Seongju area could be targeted by Pyongyang, while also raising suspicions about the possible health and environmental effects of the system's powerful radar, which already arrived in April.
