  • S. Korea-US ready for air force joint drills against N. Korea's missile provocations

South Korea's military believes that the latest missile, which flew 950 kilometers before splashing down in waters near Japan, is potentially capable of striking targets as far as 13,000 kilometers, which would put Washington within reach. About 12,000 US personnel and 230 aircraft will take part in the drill.

On Saturday Russia's Foreign Affairs Minister Sergei Lavrov reiterated his country's condemnation of the missile test.

North Korea has warned that a "reckless" joint military drill by the USA and South Korea could spark a nuclear war.

"What matters is the fact that the drill simulating an actual war is to be staged at a time when insane President Trump is running wild", a commentary carried by the official Korean Central News Agency said.

Russia's U.N. Ambassador Vassily Nebenzia told the council at Wednesday's emergency meeting that Russian Federation believes the only way to resolve the situation and find a long-term solution is through "tireless and diplomatic efforts".

"What we are endeavoring to do is to regain our strategic focus", he said.

No, you know, I've seen no evidence of the investigation in any way impeding the important work that we're doing.

North Korea's nuclear test are spreading a "ghost disease" that is deforming babies and sickening civilians exposed to radiation, defectors said in a report published Sunday.

"We obviously are not looking for a military solution ourselves", Bessho said. "We are trying in the Security Council to find a way to make DPRK change its policy". The unit, whose name has not been formally released, will also be tasked with taking out North Korea's missile and nuclear facilities if necessary.

He pushed China to do more, including cutting off North Korean oil imports.

Russian Federation and China have proposed a roadmap for defusing the crisis in the region.

On the heels of Wednesday's emergency Security Council session on the test-firing, however, he could not offer new details on what the council may decide to do to in response.

I think there's more confidence in the United States, frankly I think there's a sense that we are engaging in areas where we had largely disengaged, what we've endeavored to do now is to engage in a meaningful way with allies and partners to break this frightful cycle of sectarian violence, to defeat Isis we have now, with our allies and partners defeated Isis in 95 percent of the so-called Caliphate in Syria and Iraq.
