Trump calls for stronger sanctions on North Korea after missile

Kenny Thornton | 14 May, 2017, 11:45

Russian President Vladimir Putin and his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping discussed the Korean situation on the sidelines of the meeting and "both parties expressed their concern over the escalation of tensions", Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters.

North Korea has launched a ballistic missile, the first launch since newly elected South Korean president Moon Jae-in has taken office.

Kishida says he and South Korean Foreign Minister Yun Byung-se shared the view that dialogue is important for resolving the North Korean tensions.

China, which has been under growing U.S. pressure to help rein in the nuclear-armed North, called for restraint.

"Even if dialogue is possible, (we) should show (to North Korea) that it's possible only in case of North Korea changing its attitude", Moon said, presiding over a session of the National Security Council.

Washington has accused other UN Security Council members of not fully enforcing existing sanctions against the North, and has urged China in particular to use its trade links as influence.

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe called the latest launch "absolutely unacceptable" and said that repeated missile tests by Pyongyang were a "severe threat to our country" and a clear contravention of United Nations resolutions.

'The North wants to show before negotiations that their precious, powerful weapon is not something they would give up so easily, ' Yang said.

In an interview in April with Reuters, President Trump warned that a "major, major conflict" with North Korea was possible, but said he would prefer a diplomatic resolution to the issue of North Korea's nuclear and missile programs.

Japan has hit out once again at the North for threatening their safety, but according to the trajectory and height of the missile, the USA should be more anxious. But analysts say that North Korea's weapons program is likely too far advanced for him to be able to return to the type of sunshine policies his liberal predecessors favored. It comes just days after the election of a new South Korean president and as U.S., Japanese and European militaries gather for war games in the Pacific.

He said the USA maintains its ironclad commitment to stand with its allies in the face of the serious threat posed by North Korea. The latest "provocation" should serve as a call for all nations to implement far stronger sanctions against the North, it said.

Most experts have doubted that the North has developed an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) with that range. A Japanese government source said it would have a range of more than 4,000 km if launched on a normal trajectory.

Earlier, Japanese officials said the missile landed in the Sea of Japan but outside the country's exclusive economic zone.

"I remember when Clinton wrote in his book about the wonderful deal they made with North Korea", he said, referring to former President Bill Clinton's 2004 biography, "My Life".

It was also North Korea's first launch since a controversial United States missile defence system deployed in South Korea became operational on May 2 and follows a failed April 29 ballistic missile test.

He called it a clear violation of UN Security Council resolutions and a serious challenge to worldwide peace and security, according to senior presidential secretary Yoon Young-chan. As the missile tests continue, it is not clear when or if Washington would decide on military action or whether Seoul would try to block it.

The missile was launched near the city of Kusong early on Sunday and landed in the Sea of Japan.

Prime Minister Shinzo Abe told reporters Sunday that the launch is "absolutely unacceptable" and that Japan will respond resolutely. The previous missile launch from this territory was carried out in February.
