Why North Korea, US don't want all-out war

The Hyunmoo 2 is a critical component of the "kill chain" (a system created to detect a North Korean nuclear weapon or missile attack in advance and carry out a preliminary strike on the launch site), and with a range of 800km the missile could hit any point in North Korean territory.

Officials in the USA and overseas are expressing concern over North Korea's space launch program at Sohae on the country's west coast.

A University of Missouri professor who has been studying North Korea's illicit cash flow for more than a decade said the Trump administration will likely need to go after that money before Kim is interested in negotiating with the usa, though Sheena Greitens warned it wouldn't be a simple task.

Flashy cars, luxury ski vacations, state-of-the-art weaponry - North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is living a life of luxury, but for millions in his country, blackouts and a lack of adequate food are their way of life.

US officials have said that Unha-3 is not likely to be used as an ICBM.

Moon Chung-in, a special foreign affairs and security adviser to South Korean President Moon Jae-in, answers a barrage of questions from reporters upon arrival from his trip to the United States, at Incheon International Airport, west of Seoul, South Korea, on Wednesday.

The US has 28,500 troops stationed in South Korea and has helped the nation set up a controversial Terminal High-Altitude Area Defence system, created to shoot down a North Korean ballistic missile.

North Korean missile tests present a hard challenge for Moon.

The missile is considered as a key component to the so-called "kill chain" preemptive strike capability the South is pursuing to cope with the North's growing nuclear and missile threat. "A policy of embracing North Korea is possible when we have a defense capability that surpasses that of North Korea".

This photo, taken on May 26, 2017, shows the now-shuttered inter-Korean industrial complex in Kaesong, North Korea. "At least I know China tried!" said Trump in a tweet earlier this week.

Even so, the Trump administration is continuing to reach out to China for help on the North Korean issue.

Experts also point out North Korea's recent engine and missile tests haven't really proved to be much of a success.

"This was the fourth of six test launches, and the missile will be deployed after two more test launches are assessed", said Blue House spokesperson Park Soo-hyun during the regular press briefing.

In a statement carried by South Korea's Yonhap News Agency, the JCS said that the soldier had crossed at the "central forward area" of the MDL at 21:30 KST on Friday.
