Admiral Harry Harris warns that North Korea is a world threat not just a regional threat

US Navy Admiral Harry Harris

But Moon has expressed his preference for early negotiations and his desire to reopen the joint Kaesong Industrial Complex, which was closed by the conservative Park Geun-hye administration in February 2016 after North Korea's fourth nuclear test.

If mishandled, the collision of these forces could endanger the alliance, just at the moment when the world needs maximum coordination to bring North Korea's growing nuclear threat to heel.

According to experts, North Korea's latest missile test is the most significant advancement in the regime's nuclear weapons program to date. Rather than a divergence of interests, the great risk to coordination between Trump and Moon is bad chemistry. After months of sparring with increasingly threatening political rhetoric from both the United States and North Korea, the USA has toned down its challenges to Kim Jong-un, even though earlier this month, Politico reported that the Democratic People's Republic of North Korea (DPRK) accused, through its Ministry of State Security, the us of plotting the assassination of its leader, Kim Jong-un.

Its ambassador to China said in Beijing on Monday it would continue such test launches "any time, any place".Trump and new South Korean President Moon Jae-in will meet in Washington next month, with North Korea expected to be high on the agenda, the South's presidential Blue House said. "So I think in order to have an important influence on the USA policy on North Korea there should be close coordination and dialogue with President Trump as soon as possible". "Put enough pressure on him to "do something about North Korea" and he might succumb to that pressure, with disastrous results", Martin said.


North Korea and the US have been locked in an escalating war of words in recent months.

McMaster also was said to have agreed to this principle, adding South Korea and the United States will have to cooperate and hold further discussions on the conditions necessary for dialogue with the North.

'China is willing to make efforts with all sides, including South Korea, to take even more practical efforts and uphold resolving the nuclear issue on the peninsula via dialogue, ' the ministry cited Wang as saying.

Before an emergency meeting of the council Tuesday, U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley declared: "You either support North Korea or you don't, but you have to choose".
