The tone of tensions: Korean voices, North and South


The failed launch from North Korea's east coast, ignoring repeated admonitions from major ally China, came a day after North Korea held a grand military parade in its capital, marking the birth anniversary of the state founder, displaying what appeared to be new long-range ballistic missiles. In a moment we'll hear more about North Korea's weapons capabilities.

His aim is for North Korea to be taken seriously as a nuclear power, like the US, Britain, Russia and India.

North Korea says it's created a nuclear weapon small enough to mount on a missile, though many experts dispute that claim.

He has said if China does not reign their ally's neighbour in he will involve America and has recently sent a USA aircraft carrier group to the region. "The Trump administration's policy is the most hostile ever", said Ryol.

But the suspension comes as nutjob dictator Kim Jong Un has threatened to stage another nuke or missile test despite U.S. threats to retaliate - possibly even with a military strike. North Korea regularly launches short-range missiles, but it is also developing mid-range and long-range missiles meant to target USA troops in Asia and, eventually, the US mainland.

A USA military official, who requested anonymity to discuss planning, said the United States doesn't intend to use military force against North Korea in response to either a nuclear test or a missile launch.

North Korean state television showed what appeared to be several KN-08 and KN-14 missiles rolled out on trucks at the parade Saturday celebrating the 105th birthday of Kim Il Sung. Its eventual goal is a long-range nuclear missile that can strike the continental United States.

But analysts also warned that North Korean might conduct another nuclear test in the future. South Korea's Defence Ministry said it was analyzing exactly how the North Korean launch failed.

"We will hold the U.S. wholly accountable for the catastrophic consequences to be entailed by its outrageous actions", North Korea's deputy foreign minister said in an interview with AP.

There was also an unsuccessful missile launch in late March.

Han told Tracy that North Korea does not want a war, and insisted his government was only responding to US threats.

Other military hardware at the parade included tanks, multiple rocket launchers and artillery, as well as a solid-fuel missile created to be fired from submarines.

The U.S. Pacific Command said in a statement that Sunday's missile exploded on launch. While eating "the most attractive piece of chocolate cake", with Xi on the evening of April 6, Trump told the Chinese president that he had ordered USA forces to fire missiles at a Syrian airbase, following the poison gas attack on Syrian civilians apparently by forces loyal to Syrian president Bashar Assad.

He said China would continue to give its support to any political dialogue to resolve the North Korean standoff, be it "official or unofficial. bilateral or multilateral".

There has been no confirmation as yet of the launch attempt from North Korea, according to CNN.
