  • Ferry between Russia and North Korea starts regular service

Harris was careful not to include rhetoric that suggested that Kim Jong-un and his regime should be replaced.

On Sunday, Pyongyang launched what some analysts believe is its most successful missile test to date, with North Korean Supreme Leader Kim Jong-un saying that USA mainland was now in "sighting range".

The nose cone resembles that of the KN-08 ICBM the North is believed to be developing, and the lofted trajectory tests re-entry by putting the missile through extra stress, said Joshua Pollack of the US-based Non-proliferation Review.

That occurred just hours after a North Korean diplomat said her country would hold a dialogue with the United States "under the right conditions".

It has caused controversy around the world, but in North Korea the developers of its latest missile have reportedly been given a hero's welcome on their return.

The Mangyongbong was built in 1971 and modernised a year ago, Russia's Tass news agency reports.

Adm. Harry Harris Jr. made the remarks at a lecture for a Tokyo think-tank after meeting with Japanese leaders that he said focused on North Korea's missile and nuclear programs.

He added, "I must assume Kim Jong-Un's claims are the truth, because I know his aspirations certainly are..."

Tillerson was also quoted as saying he hopes the North will take chances and "trust the US".

While in Tokyo, Harris met Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, Foreign Minister Fumio Kishida and Defence Minister Tomomi Inada.

South Korea's recently elected President Moon Jae-in said Wednesday, "The reality is that there is a high possibility of a military conflict at the NLL (Northern Limit Line) and military demarcation line".

Russian President Vladimir Putin said in Beijing that Moscow was opposed to any new countries acquiring nuclear weapons, but that the world should talk to North Korea rather than threaten it. He also emphasized that the USA has been encouraging China to take "appropriate actions" with regard to its volatile neighbor.

In photos released by the North's Korean Central Television Monday in regards to the Hwasong-12 ballistic missile launch, which was test-fired a day before, the projectile was seen being rolled out on a 12-wheel TEL.

While the United Nations and several its members in the South-east region concerned with such unexpected cooperation between Russian and wide-ranged sanctions North Korea, the passengers of the ferry are enjoying its restaurant, bars and even karaoke room.
