Defense Ministry: North's Hwasong-15 Assessed to be ICBM-Grade

The US has urged all nations to cut diplomatic and trade ties with North Korea after the country's latest ballistic missile test.

The new missile appears to be significantly bigger than the Hwasong-14 ICBM the North tested twice in July, the South Korean Defense Ministry said on Friday in a report carried by the South's Yonhap news agency.

"The dictator of North Korea made a decision yesterday that brings us closer to war, not farther from it", she said.

The claim was not proven and experts have cast doubt on the country's ability to master such technology.

On Wednesday the North launched a test launch and on Thursday released dozens of photos of the missile in the paper and online editions of the ruling party's official daily.

Ms Haley warned that "continued acts of aggression" were only serving to further destabilise the region.

"The Americans should explain to all of us what they are trying to do - if they want to find a pretext for destroying North Korea they should come clean about it, and the American leadership should confirm it", he told reporters.

Defense Ministry: North's Hwasong-15 Assessed to be ICBM-Grade

With the recent launch of another ICBM and the construction of additional launching pads, North Korea continues to defy the US -led world outrage over its nuclear program and is determined to bring it to completion.

As Paul Bracken, a professor of political science at Yale, told Business Insider, Trump has "been reasonably effective" in isolating North Korea and rallying support for sanctions internationally.

Mr Xi said China would like to keep up communications with the United States and all other related parties and "jointly push the nuclear issue toward the direction of peaceful settlement via dialogues and negotiations", according to Xinhua.

The US remains determined to stop North Korea from building a credible nuclear force, but it's looking less likely it will be able to do so diplomatically. "The major supplier of that oil is China".

"The Chinese Envoy, who just returned from North Korea, seems to have had no impact on Little Rocket Man", Trump wrote.

During a speech in St. Charles, Mo., on November 29, President Trump referred to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un as "Little Rocket Man" and "sick puppy".

Mr Xi responded by telling Mr Trump it was Beijing's "unswerving goal to maintain peace and stability in north-east Asia and denuclearise the Korean peninsula", Chinese news agency Xinhua reported.

"We and the United States do not accept North Korea's declaration of being a nuclear state itself", the official said, adding that the president too has stressed the need to first verify the North's claimed success in its latest missile test.
