S. Korea's Moon: 'High Possibility' of Clashes with North

China says its influence has been exaggerated and has called on South Korea and the U.S.to end large-scale wargames seen as threatening by North Korea in exchange for the North suspending its missile launches and nuclear tests.

Speaking ahead of an emergency meeting of the U.N. Security Council following North Korea's latest missile test at the weekend, Haley said she believed the United States and others would agree with North Korea's neighbor and ally China on how to respond to the launch.

South Korean Unification Ministry spokesman Lee Duk-haeng told reporters the government's most basic stance was that communication lines between North and South should reopen.

In an announcement reflecting a shift in South Korea's attitude to dealing with Pyongyang under President Moon Jae-in, Seoul's unification ministry said the channel of communication might be recovered to ease tensions with North Korea.

Haley said the US was still working on persuading China and Russian Federation to support stronger sanctions against North Korea, to which end she "pointedly reminded Russian Federation that the North's latest missile test had reached close to Russia's border", as the New York Times puts it.

The head of the USA military's Pacific Command has warned of the danger of North Korea's nuclear and missile programs, calling it a "recipe for a disaster".

North Korea said that the test was a legitimate defense against threats from a hostile US. If North Korea cooperates the United States could possibly support reduction in sanctions.
