In March, North Korea claimed it successfully tested a new high-thrust engine for development of a long-range ballistic missile.

After two more tests, the 800-kilometer range ballistic missile system will be deployed as a crucial part of South Korea's so-called Kill Chain system, which is supposed to allow pre-emptive strikes on North Korea's missile sites at times of imminent threats.

Moon has stressed a need to impose additional, stronger sanctions on the communist state if the North tests an intercontinental ballistic missile or conducts its sixth nuclear test.

In the latest provocative act, North Korea launched a salvo of several suspected short-range surface-to-ship cruise missiles off its east coast on June 8, 2017 in continuation of weapons launches.

The North's missile tests present a hard challenge to Moon, a liberal who took office in May and has expressed a desire to reach out to Pyongyang. South Korea can load warheads weighing up to 2 tons on ballistic missiles with shorter ranges.


Moon was thanked by World Taekwondo President Chungwon Choue, who said at a press conference earlier today that he anticipates significant discussions with senior ITF officials on the sidelines of the Championships.

China's top diplomat, Mr Yang Jiechi, told US President Donald Trump at the White House that Beijing was willing to "maintain communication and coordination" with Washington to defuse tension on the Korean peninsula, according to a statement yesterday.

It also drew South Korea into the row for seeking to use Warmbier's case to seek the release of other detainees, including six South Korean citizens.

Tensions between the United States and North Korea spiked once again last week when American student Otto Warmbier, who was serving a hard labour sentence in Pyongyang for allegedly stealing a propaganda sign, died shortly after returning home in a coma.

A second United States official also confirmed the test but did not provide additional details on the type of rocket component that was being tested or whether it fit into the intercontinental ballistic missile programme. For PyeongChang, the North's last shot is in pairs figure skating, and its skaters' fate will be determined in September. Two months later, he was sentenced to 15 years of hard labor, accused of committing a "hostile act" by trying to steal a political poster from his hotel in Pyongyang, the North Korean capital.
