"The reality is that there is a high possibility of a military conflict at the NLL (Northern Limit Line) and military demarcation line", Moon was quoted as saying by the presidential Blue House, referring to the de facto maritime and land boundaries between North and South.

However far apart the United States and South Korea are with the North, Pyongyang may finally have the leverage it wants to negotiate.

When asked if the launch indicated that North Korea's missile program was developing faster than expected, Han responded, "yes".

Wood TV recently published an article that details out why the successful launch of this missile is looked upon as a big worry for North Korea's neighbours and especially Washington D.C.'s Donald Trump.

In an apparent fence-mending move, South Korea's new President Moon Jae-In dispatched his envoy Lee Hae-Chan to China after his election victory last week.

South Korea is still anxious to reopen communication lines with North Korea, despite missile test last weekend, as the country's new president Moon Jae-in follows his dual-track policy of using sanctions to push denuclearisation while encouraging dialogue.

Left-leaning Moon favours engagement with the North to bring it to the negotiating table, but after Sunday's missile launch said dialogue would be possible "only if Pyongyang changes its behaviour".

Haley said the Security Council is going to send a strong and unified message to North Korea that "the worldwide community wants to support you but as long as you test, and as long as you continue your nuclear program, you are on an island by yourself".

Haley's comments at the United Nations, alongside ambassadors from Japan and South Korea, came days after North Korea tested another ballistic missile.

"South Korea defense posture" against North Korea to "suppress war", Newsis reported.

During the talks, Abe also referred to a protest lodged Wednesday by Tokyo with Seoul after a South Korean research vessel was spotted operating in Japan's exclusive economic zone west of the Takeshima islets without obtaining Tokyo's consent, according to a Japanese government source.

During the meeting, Trump expressed hope for working closely together with Moon to strengthen the alliance and resolve the North Korean nuclear issue, Hong said. "Seoul needs to make a choice between deploying THAAD and resuming Sino-South Korean relations".

South Korea has complained that some of its companies doing business in China have faced discrimination in retaliation for the THAAD deployment.

The United Nations Security Council met behind closed door on Tuesday to discuss tightening sanctions on North Korea. Speaking in Japan, Commander of the U.S. Pacific Command Harry Harris not only maintained that the trilateral alliance between the United States, South Korea, and Japan must remain strong but that the world, but most notably China and Russian Federation, needed to work together to "bring Kim Jong-Un to his senses".
