South Korea Seeks To Reopen Communication With North Korea

South Korea Seeks To Reopen Communication With North Korea

The worrying report on the missile landing in the imminent proximity to the Russian border, some 60 miles (97 km) south of the Russian Far East city of Vladivostok, with over 1 million residents, was given by CNN, citing an unnamed USA official. The successful test Sunday highlighted the North's growing missile and nuclear threats.

Last month, North Korea reconvened the Foreign Affairs Committee, which was abolished in the late 1990s, in what analysts saw as an attempt to improve relations with the outside world amid its deepening isolation.

South Korea's Unification Ministry deems that reopening of communications with North Korea is a good idea.

A former U.S. official responsible for arms control has warned that North Korea is in a position to strike American territory, and all current methods to counter the threat have failed.

South Korean President Moon Jae-in's bodyguard Choi Young-jae has taken Twitter by storm, with all eyes ogling this face in the president's security detail, dubbed as the "handsome brigade".

It tested successfully what is considered to be an IRBM (intermediate range ballistic missile) of enhanced caliber capable of traveling up to 3,000 to 4,000 km (1,860 to 2,485 miles).

North Korea could also hit the South with chemical or biological warheads, making the city of Busan, a major port sometimes used by US Navy, a potential nuclear target.

But there are questions over whether Pyongyang can miniaturise a nuclear weapon sufficiently to fit it onto a missile nose cone, or has mastered the re-entry technology needed to ensure it survives returning into Earth's atmosphere. China is North Korea's biggest economic partner and source of diplomatic support and has come under heavy pressure to use its influence to rein in the North's missile and nuclear activities.

"I must assume Kim Jong-Un's claims are the truth, because I know his aspirations certainly are..."

China for its part has been infuriated by the USA deployment of an advanced Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) anti-missile system in South Korea, saying it was a threat to its security and would do nothing to ease tension with Pyongyang.

The UN Security Council North Korea sanctions committee has been meeting with regional blocs at the United Nations to push for enforcement of existing sanctions and assist countries with questions on how to implement the measures.

"The reality is that there is a high possibility of a military conflict at the NLL [Northern Limit Line] and military demarcation line", Reuters cited Moon as saying. Any one of which would make any nuclear device North Korea can make look like a firecracker.

CD REV's Wang Zixin told The Associated Press that the group hopes to rally Chinese worldwide against the deployment of THAAD and demonstrate China's "tough stance" on the issue.

Tensions between Washington and Pyongyang have ramped up in recent weeks with the Trump administration saying military action was an option under consideration and the North threatening massive retaliation.

U.S. President Donald Trump told South Korea's presidential envoy that Washington was willing to resolve the North Korean nuclear crisis through engagement under the right conditions, South Korea's Yonhap News Agency reported on Thursday.

Moon's envoy to the United States, South Korean media mogul Hong Seok-hyun, left for Washington early on Wednesday. It is not a crisis, but it is a slap in the face to Moon as well as every other government that hopes to get North Korea to act in accordance with global rules and the wishes of the rest of the world.
