'High possibility' of conflict with North Korea, says new South Korean President

A rap group backed by China's government is warning South Korea in a music video that "you're going too far" with the deployment of a USA missile defense system, as Beijing seeks to bring its state-supported cultural forces to bear in the worldwide dispute.

Under the leadership of Kim, North Korea has been speeding up its pursuit of a decades-long goal of developing nuclear-armed missiles capable of reaching the USA mainland.

In order to ensure that such weapons are not used for pre-emptive strikes, which are banned by the country's Constitution, however, it is necessary for Japan to be able to detect and confirm an enemy intention to launch an armed attack - something it can not manage without information from the US military.

South Korea's new president launched worldwide efforts to defuse tension over North Korea's weapons development on Thursday, urging both dialogue and sanctions while also aiming to ease Chinese anger about a United States anti-missile system.

"Absolutely, sanctions (are) something that we are looking at and we are going to continue to see where that takes us".

A missile with a range of 1,000 km (620 miles), such as the extended-range Scud, or Scud-ER, would only have a flight time of about 12 minutes if flown on a slightly lofted trajectory that traveled 700 km.

Asked whether North Korea's missile program was developing faster than expected, he said, "Yes".

Its state-run KCNA news service alleged that it now has the ability to send a "large-size heavy nuclear warhead" across the Pacific following its test of a Hwasong-12 missile over the weekend. China will only pocket any pre-emptive American "concession" and never fulfill Washington's expectations to behave responsibly by removing a global threat, such as North Korea's looming nuclear missiles.

This comes after the South said it wanted to reopen a channel of dialogue with North Korea as the South Korean President seeks a two-track policy, involving sanctions and dialogue.

Her comments came ahead of an emergency meeting of the UN Security Council.

North Korea's defiance of the worldwide community was particularly embarrassing for China since the launch occurred as their leaders were assembled in Beijing for the Belt and Road Forum.
