Korea calls S. Korea's border firing reckless provocation

Let North Korea Have Peaceful Nuclear Power

South Korea says it has fired warning shots at an object that flew across the demilitarised zone from North Korea.

South Korea said its military fired an unspecified number of warning shots on Tuesday after detecting an object flying across the border.

China fully implemented its UN Security Council sanction commitments towards North Korea and would continue to play a constructive role in negotiations, Wang said.

The object, which the South Korean military said was no longer visible, was spotted two days after Pyongyang test-fired a ballistic missile - its second missile test in seven days.

Chairman of the National Assembly's National Defense Committee, Kim Young Woo, said that on Tuesday morning, another unidentified object believed to be from North Korea was seen flying over Paju but with a different speed.

The North has proudly publicized its plans to develop a missile capable of striking the United States and has ignored calls to halt its weapons programs, even from China.

The most immediate impact would be on South Korea, potentially within zero to six minutes; followed by Tokyo, which could be hit in 10-11 minutes.

The ministry has reportedly put utmost priority on North Korea's nuclear issue and response measures. In case that happens, the U.S. Army, Air Force, Marines and Navy will be ready to help South Korea with 28,500 troops already in the country.

In a televised speech earlier this year, the North's leader, Kim Jong Un, said the country was making progress toward deploying an intercontinental ballistic missile.

The United States, Britain and France have been pushing for a new U.N. resolution with tougher sanctions against North Korea.

China is within striking distance of North Korea's nuclear-tipped missiles, a North Korean lecturer told a group of state officials about a week after the test of the midrange missile Hwasong-12.

The Trump administration has been aggressively pressing China to rein in North Korea, warning that all options are on the table if Pyongyang persists with its weapons development. "We have yet to verify the vehicle", South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff told reporters.
