S Korea says 'more provocation' expected of North soon

Each B-2, meanwhile, can pack 16 nukes in its bomb bay in addition to "bunker busters", a signal to North Korea that underground caves cannot be considered secure hiding places.

The Kill Chain system would carry out a pre-emptive first strike against hostile launch sites, the Korean Air and Missile Defense (KAMD) system would attempt to intercept any missiles that would cross the border, and the Korea Massive Punishment and Retaliation (KMPR) plan intends to obliterate the entirety of North Korea if its missiles do hit targets down south. Recent launches have indicated that North Korea has the potential to strike cities as far as Boston or NY, and North Korea's nuclear capability has continued to grow unchecked despite sanctions. The nuclear test significantly raised already high tensions with the United States, South Korea, and Japan.

The North has accused Trump of declaring war after he warned Kim's regime would not last if he persisted in threatening the United States and its allies, having earlier warned North Korea would be totally destroyed in such an event. However, no peace treaty has been signed since then, meaning that South Korea is technically still at war with North Korea.

The ministry invited them to the 69th Armed Forces Day ceremony held at a local naval base in Pyeongtaek, Gyeonggi Province, on Thursday.

South Korean President Moon Jae-in has called for the long-delayed transfer of its wartime operational control (OPCON) from the Pentagon to be speeded up, and says the country must develop its own military capacity to "punish" North Korea's "provocations".

Park said President Moon told the meeting that Washington and Seoul agreed that pressure needed to be applied to North Korea, with the door to talks still open.

Malaysia banned citizens from travelling to North Korea, citing the escalating tension on the Korean peninsula. Speaking to reporters outside a NY hotel Monday, North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong-ho said, "Trump claimed our leadership would not be around much longer ... he declared a war on our country".

Korea's conservative opposition parties have said that the handover could weaken the bond between Seoul and Washington, lessen the resources the USA spends on its Asian ally, and further embolden Pyongyang.

China opposes the deployment of THAAD because it believes its powerful radar could be used to look inside its territory.

North Korea has said that recent remarks by President Trump at the UN General Assembly constituted a declaration of war against Pyongyang.
