  • US, South Korea Speak After NKorea's Nuclear Test

South Korea's presidential office says that North Korea appears to have conducted its sixth nuclear test after an artificial quake was detected in northern North Korea on Sunday.

Trump, who said after last week's missile launch that talking to Pyongyang "is not the answer", tweeted that Sunday's test showed North Korea's "words and actions continue to be very hostile and risky to the United States".

He then made a vague war threat by writing, "South Korea is finding, as I have told them, that their talk of appeasement with North Korea will not work, they only understand one thing!"

"In the emerging conditions it is absolutely essential to keep cool, refrain from any actions that could lead to a further escalation of tensions", it said on its website, adding that North Korea risked "serious consequences". The two agreed that the US and South Korean presidents would talk on the phone soon to discuss cooperation on measures against North Korean provocation, he said. Later on Sunday, Russian President Vladimir Putin was set to meet his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping in China. It said it would fully enforce United Nations resolutions on the country.

"Although a nuclear test only has a limited impact on listed firms' earnings and other fundamental aspects, it is still inevitable for the market to suffer a short-term fluctuation (following Sunday's provocation)", Lee added.

French President Emmanuel Macron urged the United Nations Security Council to react quickly and decisively.

South Korea was seeking "the toughest retaliation measures" after the North tested another nuclear weapon, a national security official said.

Moon said all available diplomatic actions, including new UN Security Council resolution, should be considered to completely isolate North Korea in response to the its sixth nuclear device test.
