South Korea expects ICBM test by North Korea

As a relatively easy way to prevent Kim Jong-un from taking 50 million South Koreans as hostages, our government must persuade the U.S government and the Congress to approve of redeployment of tactical nuclear weapons which Uncle Sam withdrew from South Korea at the end of 1991.

Mr Putin said he believes US President Donald Trump's administration is willing to defuse tensions over North Korea's nuclear ambitions.

In late August, the Pentagon posted another proposal for contractors to build walls around four USA bases in South Korea to protect them from a potential attack.

USA and South Korea agreed on the deployment of four additional missile launchers in July following North Korea's launch of an intercontinental ballistic missile.

The last nuclear test North Korea conducted was September 9, 2016 - Foundation Day past year.

A Gallup Korea survey released on Friday found 58 per cent of South Koreans felt there was no possibility North Korea would cause a war, while 37 per cent said they thought it would.

North Korea has been stepping up its nuclear and missile program significantly in recent months. "Mattis underscored the United States would work with Japan to enhance its ballistic missile defence capabilities", White said.

"There is nothing more foolish than thinking we, a strong nuclear state, will endure this evil pressure aimed at overthrowing our state", the North's official news agency said in a commentary.

South Korea is also working on a 'decapitation strike' team that would be deployed to eliminate the North's leadership if war broke out.

Sweden has had diplomatic relations with North Korea since 1973. That is the best way to keep the so-called "balance of terror" in the Korean Peninsula.

It was not immediately clear how North Korean allies China and Russian Federation would vote, but a senior us official on Friday night expressed scepticism that either nation would accept anything more stringent than a ban on imports of North Korean textiles.

Pressed on whether he could accept a scenario in which the isolated nation had nukes but was "contained and deterred", Trump demurred. It also provides hundreds of thousands of tonnes of oil and fuel to the impoverished regime. Defense Minister Song Young-moo laid out options such as the purchase of SM-3 interceptors - an anti-ballistic missile system similar to THAAD, but one that can shoot down missiles, at higher altitudes, and over a longer range.
