South Korea braces for possible weekend missile test from the North

Military action not first choice on Korean nuclear issue Trump

South Korea's Defense Ministry couldn't immediately confirm when the four launchers added on Thursday will be operationally capable.

Six police officers and 32 other people were injured, none seriously, in the clashes, said a fire department official in Seongju.

Seonju residents and activists have raised worries over rumored health hazards and the possibility of being targeted in North Korean attacks.

Dozens of people were injured in clashes between South Korean protesters and police Thursday as the USA military added more launchers to the high-tech missile-defense system it installed in a southern town to better cope with North Korean threats.

Two launchers have been operational at the site since May, CNN reported.

The U.S. began installing the THAAD system under South Korea's previous government.

Crisis on the peninsula will not be defused by sanctions and pressure alone, he said. "There are real differences between North Korea and the small group of nations that have these weapons". "Is [military action against North Korea] inevitable?"

The White House said Trump and Turnbull "confirmed that their two countries will intensify joint efforts to denuclearize North Korea". "Our military has never been stronger", Trump continued.

Trump is to speak Wednesday with China's president. North Korea's sixth nuclear test has stirred up some tensions among the United States government and public, an expert at one U.S. think tank reported. The United States call South Korea as one of their core allies, but it unfortunately seems to try to meddle in too many military issues, including the range and payloads of our ballistic missiles, at critical moments like this. "It's been tens of billions of dollars more in investment [in the military]".

Geng says the THAAD system would aggravate tensions on the Korean Peninsula and jeopardize the strategic and security interests of China and other countries.

Moon showed commitment to the tripartite cooperation of the South and North Koreas and Russian Federation, and Putin strongly supported it. China and Russian Federation have been calling for talks, saying sanctions aren't working against North Korea.

U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley has dismissed the Russian-Chinese roadmap, saying the United States is "done talking about North Korea".

Instead, Putin reiterated the existing position that calls for dialogue. "US experts have concluded that this test is basically for an early form of hydrogen bomb", the expert said. Echoing Trump's remarks, the official said it was "plainly clear" that it is not the time for negotiation with North Korea.

Mr Putin expressed concern that cutting off oil supplies would hurt regular North Koreans, the official said.

Development of the Far East is a long-cherished goal of Russian Federation. "But I can tell you that North Korea's behaving badly and it's got to stop, OK?" he added.

Putin opposed the recognition of the North as a nuclear-armed state and strongly warned it over its sixth nuclear bomb test in violation of UN Security Council resolutions. He told reporters before his departure from Japan that "We must make North Korea understand there is no bright future for the country if it pursues the current path".
