Trump's security adviser reaffirms plan to deploy missile defence system-Seoul

US President Donald Trump led calls with leaders and senior officials from Japan and South Korea on Thursday to discuss the latest provocation from Pyongyang, hours before Trump begins a much-anticipated summit with Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping.

South Korea's foreign ministry also condemned the launch saying it was "a blunt challenge to a series of Security Council resolutions. and an act to threaten the peace and safety of the global community as well as the Korean peninsula". The North has defied the ban, saying it infringes its sovereign rights to self defence and the pursuit of space exploration.

North Korea has long fired missiles and detonated nuclear devices during major political events in South Korea and the United States, and before or during regional talks.

US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson confirmed Pyongyang had launched "yet another" intermediate range ballistic missile. Sinpo is home to a North Korean submarine base.

Abe and Trump agreed that China's recent suspension of coal imports from North Korea was not a sufficient move on its own, Hagiuda said.

According to a South Korean government source, preparation for the sixth nuclear test, following the one in September a year ago, is nearly complete at the Punggye-ri nuclear test site in northeastern North Korea.

Hyperloop One's test route is ready to run
As the company perfects its engineering, it is also whittling down 2,600 applicants worldwide that want to build the system. One of the companies hard at work in making this futuristic concept a reality is Los Angeles-based startup Hyperloop One.

Abe was meeting Trump at the Mar-a-Lago estate in February when North Korea launched a rocket, setting off a controversy when the leaders set up an impromptu, alfresco "situation room" in full view of the resort's guests.

And yet our presidential candidates are not describing how they would tackle the challenge except Democratic Party candidate Moon Jae-in, who nonchalantly said, "I will go to North Korea ahead of America if I am elected president".

As well as a growing list of ballistic missile launches, North Korea has also conducted two nuclear weapons tests since January 2016.

"There was a test firing recently of a Hyunmoo-type ballistic missile with a range of 800km at the Anheung test site of the Agency for Defense Development (ADD) under the wing of the Defense Ministry", an informed source said. Earlier in March, North Korea fired four ballistic missiles that flew about 1,000 kilometers (620 miles), with three of them landing in waters that Japan claims as its exclusive economic zone.

Nick Bisley, director of La Trobe Asia, called it a mistake to assume North Korea is like "a spoiled child".

The North is believed to be developing an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) that could hit the United States, and its leader, Kim Jong Un, has vowed to test-launch one at any time.
