N. Korea ICBM test used new launch vehicle warhead able to re-enter Earth's atmosphere

North Korea yesterday blasted the US and South Korea as "warmongers" on the eve of their largest-ever joint air exercise, saying it could trigger a nuclear war.

Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha is planning to make her first visit to Japan as Seoul's top diplomat later this month to discuss cooperation on reining in North Korean military threats and ways to resolve the countries' historical feud, diplomatic sources said Friday.

"We know the main driver of its nuclear production is oil", she said.

The DPRK test fired a new type of intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) - "Hwasong 15 "- last week which it said could hit the entire territory of the United States, thus marking the completion of DPRK's rocket weaponry system, according to Pyongyang's own description of its nuclear and missile system.

Zhao said that they plan to launch Honor's artificial intelligence enabled smartphone in the country early next year. The phone has on board either 32,64 or 128GB of storage which can be expanded via a microSD card.

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".

China is a historic ally and North Korea's most important trading partner and Pyongyang is thought to be dependent on China for much of its oil supplies.

Michael Elleman, a missile expert, told the Associated Press that Hwasong-15's estimated 13,000-kilometer (8,100-mile) range assumes a payload of around 150 kilograms (330 pounds). Elleman estimates that the missiles would struggle even to reach the US's west coast with a reasonably size nuclear warhead aboard.

North Korea's Hwasong intercontinental ballistic missile is lauched at an undisclosed location.

According to reports, the game is expected to continue after the South Carolina State players voted in favor of playing the game. The crowd fell silent, coaches and players were crying and praying, and Solomon's mother was screaming for her son not to die.

U.S. sanctions against North Korea were bolstered last week after the Trump administration declared North Korea a state sponsor of terrorism. It showed a capacity to improve upon its existing designs and to design new missiles independently. "Our options to stop them are still very bad", Robert Kelly, an associate professor of political science at Pusan National University in South Korea, told the Los Angeles Times.

The US's ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley, on Wednesday said that the US was not seeking war with North Korea but that the latest launch "brings us closer to war".

China also suggested the North should stop the tests in return for a halt to USA military exercises - a proposal Washington has rejected in the past.

McMaster said the possibility of war with the North was "increasing every day".
