North Korea releases photos it claims are of latest missile test

North Korea last week fired a missile that flew over Hokkaido in northern Japan and landed in the Pacific Ocean.

Pyongyang threatened to sink Japan and reduce the United States to "ashes and darkness" for supporting the latest resolution and sanctions.

Defense Minister Itsunori Onodera described the move as a precautionary measure against the growing threat from North Korea, which has recently been restlessly exhibiting its growing military strength. "That is why, we called upon our American and other partners to carry out political and diplomatic decisions, which are stipulated in the resolution", the ambassador pointed out according to TASS.

In addition to China, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Friday, "Russia is deeply concerned by the latest provocative launches which lead to a further escalation of tensions on the peninsula".

Warning announcements about the latest missile blared in parts of northern Japan, while many residents received alerts on their mobile phones or saw warnings on TV telling them to seek refuge. He said President Donald Trump had been fully briefed on the event.

The images released on Saturday through North Korea's state-run Rodong Sinmun newspaper, along with video footage broadcast on Korean Central Television (KCTV), showcases more than a few interesting details about the launch, showing just how far the Hwasong-12 program has come since the missile entered testing in April 2017.

Apple Watch Series 3 is plagued by battery issues and LTE problems
Apple is blaming connectivity problems on a bug which causes the Apple Watch to try to connect to unauthenticated Wi-Fi Networks. Other LTE concerns have cropped up ahead of this round of Series 3 reviews, including some questions around worldwide roaming.

China says the onus is upon the United States and North Korea, the main players in the conflict, to resolve the dispute through logical dialog.

For Japan, these include advanced Patriot batteries, which can stop lower altitude missiles, and SM-3 missiles it is developing with the USA that can take out high-flying short- to intermediate-range ballistic missiles.

Trump has promised not to allow North Korea to threaten the United States with a nuclear-tipped missile.

North Korea launched a missile over Japan on Friday, its second in the past three weeks, and conducted its sixth and by far most powerful nuclear test on Sept 3, in defiance of worldwide pressure.

Asked about a possible American military response, Mattis said, "I don't want to talk on that yet".

However, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has previously said diplomacy and dialogue will not work with Pyongyang, calling for the entire global community to apply more pressure.

South Korean President Moon Jae-in has scheduled a National Security Council meeting to discuss the launch.

"We need to develop our military capabilities in the face of North Korea's nuclear advancement", he told CNN in his first televised interview since the nuclear test.

He said Trump should use his speech to the UN General Assembly next week to "demonstrate USA leadership in loyalty to all allies in the region and state our commitment to developing new and vibrant security guarantees for all states, including (North Korea), that are not based on the threat or use of nuclear weapons".

Following the UNSC session, members of the council stressed that North Korea must "immediately show a honest commitment to denuclearization through concrete action" to reduce tensions on the Peninsula.

Mr Abe said: "We can't be satisfied that the United Nations has approved new sanctions against North Korea". This allowed Seoul to fire its missiles only six minutes after the North's launch Friday.
