US admiral: North Korea's action 'recipe for disaster'

US admiral: North Korea's action 'recipe for disaster'

Communications were severed by the North previous year, Lee said, in the wake of new sanctions following North Korea's last nuclear test and Pyongyang's decision to shut down a joint industrial zone operated inside the North. "The president said we are leaving open the possibility of dialogue with North Korea, but we should sternly deal with a provocation to prevent North Korea from miscalculating".

"We may presently be at the stage of pressure and sanctions, but if conditions are right, [Trump] said he would be willing to take part in making peace", the South Korean special envoy said. "But he said he will not have talks with North Korea for the sake of talks, but one that could produce an outcome".

Hong delivered a letter from Moon, who took office last week, to Trump. Among other participants in the session were Vice President Mike Pence, national security adviser H.R. McMaster and Trump's son-in-law and senior adviser, Jared Kushner.

"The risky behaviour by North Korea is not just a threat to the Korean peninsula.it's a threat to China, it's a threat to Russia", Adm Harris told a an academic forum in Tokyo.

Moon's envoy to the United States, South Korean media mogul Hong Seok-hyun, left for Washington early on Wednesday. His envoy for Russian Federation will leave next week. He said the council is exploring many different avenues to proceed and "clearly sanctions are a way to go", but also diplomacy. "Seoul needs to make a choice between deploying THAAD and resuming Sino-South Korean relations".

"We're not trying to do any of those things", she said.

In a telephone conversation with Abe last week after his inauguration, President Moon said that many Korean people can not accept the deal emotionally, hinting at a possible move to renegotiate the deal.




In Beijing, Lee said Moon may have his first face-to-face talks with Chinese President Xi Jinping on the sidelines of the Group of 20 conference in July in Hamburg, Germany. "I think it is possible".

China's Foreign Ministry, in a later statement on its website, said Wang "fully explained" China's position on THAAD and asked South Korea to handle China's reasonable concerns appropriately. He also called for joint efforts to resolve the problem with wisdom.

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe told reporters that the launch was "absolutely unacceptable" and that Japan would respond resolutely. Moon, throughout his presidential campaign, had shown a willingness to rein in its neighbour through dialogue.

The two leaders agreed to meet annually and hold the talks alternately in their respective nations.

"I will build a future-oriented relationship with the new government", Abe was quoted as saying at the meeting.

The test is also an immediate challenge to South Korea's new leader, Moon Jae-in, a liberal elected last week who expressed a desire to reach out to North Korea.

The special envoy echoed the president's view Wednesday when he met with Japanese Foreign Minister Fumio Kishida.
