North Korea hails 'defence science warriors' in grand parade

Other researchers, meanwhile, suggested the attack's targeted audience implies anything but a North Korean connection.

Speaking to reporters, Kim hailed the test launch and said that if the Trump administration wants peace on the divided Korean Peninsula, it should replace the armistice that ended the 1950-53 Korean War with a peace accord and halt its anti-North Korea policy.

He said North Korea will never abandon its "nuclear deterrence for self-defense and pre-emptive strike capability" even if the US ratchets up sanctions and pressure "to the utmost".

North Korea has vowed to develop a missile mounted with a nuclear warhead that can strike the mainland United States, saying the programme is necessary to counter USA aggression.

Patrushev cited North Korea's isolation as the rationale behind the Kim Jong -un leader's mission to increase the nukes so as to ensure the country's safety.

Kim singled out as "more serious" the push by the US for a new sanctions resolution and the Trump administration's demand for all countries "to decide whether they support for DPRK or U.S".

North Korea has repeated test launches to obtain the technology needed for reentry into the atmosphere, which is said to be technically very hard. USA defense officials told NBC the reentry was controlled and the vehicle did not burn up.

"The most impressive thing that I heard (from Tillerson) was that sanctions and pressure are not by themselves aimed at harassing North Korea, but are designed to create an opportunity for North Korea's development through opening its doors and scrapping its nuclear program", Hong said. They went to a very high apogee.

Regarding the May 14 launch of the missile, the official Korean Central News Agency claimed: "It also verified the homing feature of the warhead under the worst reentry situation and accurate performance of a detonation system".

On Tuesday, Pottinger and Chung agreed to work toward a summit meeting in late June, said Moon's spokesman, Yoon Young-chan. But the tubby tyrant's latest test on Sunday was declared a success by the North Korean government.

South Korean military officials also said that North Korea has not had a controlled reentry back into the atmosphere yet.

The U.N. Security Council held an emergency meeting this week to discuss further measures in response to Pyongyang's launch of an intermediate-range ballistic missile days before.

North Korea submitted the patent application to a United Nations agency, the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), for processing. The test triggered a new USA -backed push for a fresh round of United Nations sanctions against the North. It noted that "patent applications are not covered by the provisions of U.N. Security Council Resolutions".
