Russian Federation accuses USA of 'bloodthirsty tirade' over threat to destroy North Korea

The months-long nuclear standoff between Kim and Trump has fueled concerns of another conflict, but even some Trump advisers say United States military options are limited when Pyongyang could launch an artillery barrage on the South Korean capital, Seoul, which is about 50km from the border and home to 10 million people.

The results are in from North Korea's latest missile test, and it looks as if the country's weapons program is advancing despite the US's best efforts. She was part of a delegation of Russian lawmakers just back from a visit to North Korea.

North Korea reacted angrily on Sunday to the air manoeuvres, accusing the US and South Korea of a "grave military provocation" that will "push the already acute situation on the Korean Peninsula to the brink of nuclear war".

North Korea has tested a Hwasong-15 on Wednesday with the intercontinental ballistic missile fired at a very steep angle and reaching an altitude of 4,475 kilometers (2,780 miles), flying 950 kilometers (590 miles) before splashing down off the Japanese coast.

Tal Inbar, the head of the space research center at the Fisher Institute for Air and Space Strategic Studies, observed on Twitter that the reentry vehicle, or the tip of the missile that must return down to earth, was "HUGE".

He said this is probably much lighter than any real nuclear payload the North can produce.

President Trump in a tweet Thursday morning said that North Korea's recent missile launch showed that the Chinese envoy who just returned from the country "seems to have had no impact on Little Rocket Man". This is important given the calls for a tightening of worldwide sanctions against North Korea.

North Korea's Hwasong intercontinental ballistic missile is lauched at an undisclosed location. It showed a capacity to improve upon its existing designs and to design new missiles independently.

"We know they were building to this".

China also suggested the North should stop the tests in return for a halt to U.S. military exercises - a proposal Washington has rejected in the past. However, North Korea's leader Kim Jong-un called the launch "impeccable" and a "breakthrough".

"We have never sought war with North Korea and still today we do not seek it".
