North Korea says seeking military 'equilibrium' with US

17 September 2017, 08:06 | Erica Roy

R. McMaster and U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, outlined the president's upcoming week at the U.N. General Assembly in NY next week.

Pyongyang says it needs nuclear weapons to protect itself from "hostile" United States forces and is determined to build a weapons system capable of delivering a nuclear warhead to hit the U.S. mainland.

"After seeing our capabilities, I am more confident than ever that our options are not only effective but overwhelming", Trump said.

During the 25-minute call, Trump and Moon condemned the latest missile launch by North Korea, pledging to work with the worldwide community to implement the latest UN Security Council resolution.

Hours earlier, Pyongyang had fired a missile over Japan and into the Pacific Ocean - its longest missile flight yet - in response to fresh punitive measures imposed by the U.N. Security Council.

The worldwide community is scrambling to contain an increasingly belligerent North Korea, which in recent weeks has prompted global alarm by conducting its sixth and largest nuclear test and firing long-range missiles over Japan that it says could reach the USA mainland.

South Korea's President Moon Jae-in and US President Donald Trump agreed to exert stronger pressure through sanctions on North Korea following its nuclear and missile tests.


Also on Friday, the U.N. Security Council condemned the "highly provocative" missile launch by North Korea.

The government said the photos, released to North Korea's Korean Central News Agency (KCNA), depict an intermediate range Hwasong-12 missile, the same model launched over Japan on Friday and on August 29.

"Eventually, if its opponents start backing the country into a corner, North Korea may begin selling missile technology".

Trump is spending the weekend at his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey as he prepares to address the UN General Assembly next week.

Global equities investors largely shrugged off the latest missile test by North Korea as shares on Wall Street set new highs on Friday.

Asked about the prospect for direct talks, a White House spokesman said, "As the president and his national security team have repeatedly said, now is not the time to talk to North Korea".

Lisa Collins, a fellow at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, said other nations will be watching the United States at the U.N. next week to determine Trump's next steps. "Hopefully there will be coordination with allies on their policy lines before he adds anything to the speech about North Korea".
