Japan's Abe agrees with Putin North Korea nuclear test threatens peace

Four more THAAD anti-ballistic missile launchers will be installed this week at a United States military base in South Korea, Yonhap news agency reported on Wednesday, citing South Korea's defence ministry. The latest underground nuclear test, North Korea's sixth and the fourth since Kim Jong-un came to power in 2012, was ten times more powerful than the U.S. bomb dropped on Hiroshima, Japan, in 1945, according to U.S. officials.

It said the US Forces Korea (USFK) will position the launchers at its new base in Seongju, some 300 kilometres south of Seoul, on Thursday, along with construction equipment and related materials. The yen strengthened on Lee's remarks. This emphatically includes in that process the revival of triangular cooperation with North Korea, reviving the effort to connect Russian Federation and China with South Korea by rail through the North, as well as other economic and political means to assure North Korea of both its security and its economic development.

"We will continue sanctions and pressure, which will eventually lead North Korea to the dialogue table, the only solution for North Korea".

US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley accused North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on Monday of "begging for war" with a series of nuclear bomb and missile tests.

But he said he believed North Korea's leadership feared that any freeze of its nuclear programme would be followed by what amounted to "an invitation to the cemetery".

He blamed the North "wholly" for the current nuclear stalemate but still cited "intrinsic constraints" for South Korea and the USA in their efforts to deal with the communist state for decades.

Leftist South Korean president Moon Jae-in opposed the further implementation of the THAAD system without further government inspection of, among other priorities, the environmental effect of installing it as a candidate.

As with her previous two pregnancies, the duchess, 35, is suffering from hyperemesis gravidarum , or severe morning sickness. Kensington Palace confirmed the news in a statement today, the Queen is said to be "delighted" with the news.

It will likely prove to be at least 10 times stronger than anything the North tested before. He added that it is understood by most political circles that the hysteria around the "North Korea threat" within the U.S.is largely due to the "ulterior motive" of the neocons to envelop China militarily.

China is by far North Korea's biggest trading partner, accounting for 92 percent of two-way trade previous year.

"The global community must unite in applying the greatest possible pressure on North Korea", Abe said just four days after Pyongyang staged its sixth and most powerful nuclear test to date, which it described as a "perfect success".

Geng Shuang, the Ministry's spokesman, stated during a press conference held late this afternoon that deployment of the missile defence system will only serve to sabotage the regional balance and exacerbate tension in the Korean Peninsula, thepaper.com reported. They said they agreed to create a free trade zone between Korea and the Eurasian Economic Union.

Moon had his own stark message about the situation on the Korean Peninsula: "If North Korea's provocation doesn't stop here, I think could fall into an uncontrollable situation". "We estimate this was far bigger than previous nuclear tests".

Moon maintains his pursuit of tougher economic pressures on North Korea is a means to achieve a diplomatic and peaceful resolution - his two-track policy.

"We have decisively condemned the launch of the medium-range ballistic missile which flew over Japanese territory on August 28, as well as another nuclear test carried out on September 3", Putin said.
