New South Korean President Moon Admits to 'High Possibility' of War with North Korea
Kim also dismissed allegations that the Democratic People's Republic of Korea - the country's official name - was behind the recent wave of global cyberattacks as "ridiculous".
UNITED NATIONSNorth Korea's deputy U.N. envoy said on Friday that the United States needed to roll back its "hostile policy" toward the country before there could be talks between the pair."As everybody knows, the Americans have gestured (toward) dialogue", North Korea's Deputy U.N. Ambassador Kim In Ryong told reporters on Friday. 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.
North Korea vowed Saturday to further strengthen its nuclear deterrence as the United States is heaping pressure against the North over Pyongyang's latest test of a new intermediate-range ballistic missile. If this goes to a military solution, it's going to be tragic on an unbelievable scale.
"Whenever something odd happens it is the stereotype way of the United States and the hostile forces that kick off noisy anti-DPRK campaign deliberately linking with DPRK", Kim In Ryong, the deputy ambassador, said at a press conference Friday.
Elaborating on the benefits that North Korea will be provided if it scraps its nuclear programme, Tillerson said if the DPRK cooperates, then some companies can invest in the nation.
Kim accused the council of playing "to the tune of the USA again" and protested the Trump administration's demand for countries to choose allegiance between the United States and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, his country's official name.
This appeared a bit short of an outright precondition, though Kim insisted that North Korea views USA hostility as "the root cause of all problems" in the region.
President Donald Trump is looking to both China and Russian Federation, the two permanent members on the Security Council that have historically been most sympathetic to North Korea, to join the US -backed campaign of diplomatic and economic pressure on the North to get it to denuclearize.
