"The reality is that there is a high possibility of a military conflict at the NLL (Northern Limit Line) and military demarcation line", Moon told the daily. He said North Korea would never abandon its "nuclear deterrence for self-defense and pre-emptive strike capability" even if the USA ratchets up sanctions and pressure "to the utmost".

North Korea has justified its latest long-, medium-range ballistic missile test-firing as "routine work to raise nuclear capability for self-defence", rejecting the UN Security Council's condemnation.

Communications were severed by the North previous year, Lee said, in the wake of new sanctions following North Korea's fifth nuclear test and Pyongyang's decision to shut down a joint industrial zone operated inside the North. Moon Jae-in has said dialogue and pressure must be used to ease tensions on the Korean peninsula and stop the North's weapons pursuit.

North Korea and the rich, democratic South are technically still at war because their 1950-53 conflict ended in a truce, not a peace treaty. The U.S.is looking ahead toward a decisive battleground in its bid to destroy the Islamic State group, even as U.S. -backed local forces must still finish the fight for the extremists' two main strongholds in Iraq and Syria.

Hong Seok-hyun, a former ambassador to the United States, met with Trump for 15 minutes at the Oval Office with Vice President Mike Pence, National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster and senior White House advisor Jared Kushner by Trump's side, according to South Korean television network JTBC.

North Korea's deputy U.N. envoy said on Friday that the United States needed to roll back its "hostile policy" toward the country before there could be talks between the pair.

However, a joint statement by US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Secretary of Defense James Mattis and National Intelligence Director Dan Coats said last month that Trump aims to use economic sanctions and diplomatic measures to pressure North Korea to dismantle its nuclear and missile programs.

"The successful test-fire of Hwasong-12 is of special significance in ensuring peace and stability in the Korean peninsula, and it is the greatest victory of the Korean people", Xinhau news agency quoted a Foreign Ministry spokesman as saying on Tuesday.

U.S. President Donald Trump has said he wants South Korea to pay for the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) anti-missile system which detected Sunday's test launch.
