South Korea creates 'decapitation' unit targeting North's leadership

South Korean President Moon told his USA counterpart that while Pyongyang's latest missile launch reflects its most advanced technology so far, it still lacks critical technology that would actually make its nuclear and missile weapons development complete.

South Korea said it expected Pyongyang to pause its provocative missile testing program following Wednesday's successful flight of its new Hwasong-15 missile, which can reach the USA mainland.

Pyongyang on Wednesday claimed success in its latest missile test, also declaring completion of building the "state nuclear force".

After a 75-day pause, North Korea test-fired a Hwasong-15 intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) on Wednesday, which flew 13,000 km, and Pyongyang proclaimed it was capable of putting the whole of the United States mainland within its range.

"President Moon Jae-in told his US counterpart that although it's clear that the new missile is North Korea's most advanced so far, it still has some technical issues to settle such as re-entry, terminal stage guidance and warhead activation".

Two days after North Korea test-launched its most powerful missile to date, a clearer picture is emerging of Pyongyang's impressive technological achievement - and what still remains before it can legitimately threaten the continental United States.

The Hwasong-15 is two metres longer than its predecessor, the Hwasong-14, and analysts were still examining the second-stage engine, he said. In order to curb further provocations from the North, U.S. strategic assets will continue to be rotated on and near the Korean peninsula until the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics next February, Yeo said.

I think that computers have complicated lives very greatly", Trump told reporters at his Mar-a-Lago Florida resort. Trump spoke as he departed the White House to head to NY for fundraisers expected to raise millions of dollars.

Meanwhile, Seoul's Unification Ministry played down Wednesday's provocation by the North.

The test prompted a warning from the United States that North Korea's leadership would be "utterly destroyed" if war were to break out, a statement that drew sharp criticism from Russian Federation.

Trump and Moon pledged to continue applying strong sanctions and pressure on North Korea to bring it to talks.

Many questions remain, but there's broad agreement from government and outside analyses that the huge Hwasong-15 intercontinental ballistic missile represents a significant step forward, putting the North very close to its goal of a viable arsenal of nuclear-tipped long-range missiles - maybe as early as the middle of next year.

Remarks are aimed at preventing US and North Korea from escalating tense situationAttention is focusing on the reasons why South Korean President Moon Jae-in told US President Donald Trump in a phone call on November 30 that North Korea's Hwasong-15 missile has not been completely developed.

The United Nations Security Council has unanimously imposed a set of sanctions against North Korea on September 11 over the country's hydrogen bomb test which was conducted on September 3.
