Anti-THAAD S.Koreans vow to fight for removal

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and his South Korean counterpart on Thursday struggled to grind down Russian resistance to new sanctions on Pyongyang over its nuclear test as Vladimir Putin appeared to give little ground.

In a phone conversation on Monday with South Korean President Moon Jae-In, Trump said he would support "in principle" the us ally fitting its missiles with heavier warheads, boosting its deterrence against North Korea.

US President Donald Trump criticized Moon this week for seeking "appeasement" with Pyongyang, while in August, Moon issued a forceful statement rebuking Trump's threats of "fire and fury" against North Korea, saying that any military actions on the Korean Peninsula must be made in consultation and with agreement from Seoul.

South Korea Prime Minister Lee Nak-yon has said that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is likely to "launch another Intercontinental Ballistic Missile (ICBM) on September 9".

Putin said during a news conference in China on Tuesday that it was important that all parties including North Korea not face "threats of annihilation" and "step on the path of cooperation".

Moon's meeting with Russia's President Vladimir Putin shows his desire to pursue a more independent course. South Korea's Defense Ministry couldn't immediately confirm when the four launchers added on Thursday will be operationally capable. The liberal Moon took office in May calling for diplomacy with Pyongyang but the escalation in weapons tests has been the North's only response.

Moon's chief press secretary Yoon Young-chan said Thursday that the two leaders pledged to strengthen efforts to persuade Beijing and Moscow to back tougher punitive measures against the North, which has recently conducted its sixth and most powerful nuclear test to date.

North Korea says it needs its weapons to protect itself from USA aggression.

North Korea on Thursday warned the US, Japan and South Korea against seeking additional United Nations sanctions for its nuclear and missile programs. He was clarifying Defense Minister Song Young-moo's earlier comment that redeployment of USA tactical nuclear weapons could be an option.

No, that's not going to happen any time soon, much to the chagrin of some of the ideologues and idealists counting on him to say yes to just about anything North Korea wants.

Speaking to reporters on the sidelines of an worldwide summit in China, Russian President Vladimir Putin acknowledged that further economic sanctions on the North are unlikely to deter its pursuit of nuclear weapons.

The United States has already banned Americans from traveling to North Korea following the death of Otto Warmbier, a 22-year-old college student from OH who was released from North Korea in June in a coma after being detained there for more than a year.

Russian Federation and China opposed the deployment of the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense, or THAAD, system, saying it has the potential of fueling an arms race. A senior administration official said the US was still assessing last weekend's underground explosion but so far noted nothing inconsistent with Pyongyang's claim. Two launchers and a powerful radar are already in place at the site as part of the U.S. Terminal High Altitude Area Defence (THAAD) system. But cooperation is extremely hard given the ongoing investigations into Trump's ties to Russian Federation and the USA sanctions for Russia's interference in the 2016 election, which have triggered a tit-for-tat diplomatic battle. One of the North's major oil suppliers (together with China), Russia has recently increased its trade with North Korea noticeably. The Russian leader will meet with Abe later in the day.
