South Korean stocks ended lower on September 27 as foreign investors offloaded local stocks amid tensions between North Korea and the US. "Whether it's three months or six months or 18 months, it is soon, and we ought to conduct ourselves as though it is just a matter of time, and a matter of very short time, before North Korea has that capability", he said.
The South Korean security adviser's report also noted the risk of that a military conflict could by sparked by "accidental incidents", Park Wan-ju, lawmaker and head spokesman of the ruling Democratic Party, said. Moon made the remarks during a commemorative address at the Second Fleet Command of the South Korean Navy in Pyeongtaek, Gyeonggi Province, just before Armed Forces Day on October 1, which marks the 69th anniversary of the establishment of the Republic of Korea Armed Forces.
"Meanwhile, a North Korean state-run outlet on Friday bashed the recent flight drill of U.S. strategic bombers and fighters near the North Korean coast, calling it a "provocation", according to Yonhap". "The current security crisis on the Korean peninsula is graver than ever before, which is very trying and painful for us, but it can not shake our commitment to peace". But nobody knows how effective the umbrella will be when the North's missiles come raining down.
Trump Plans Next Move To 'Confront The North Korean Threat'
The UK diplomat who negotiated the Iran nuclear deal has said a military response to North Korea is "the worst possible option", and would lead to chilling and unimaginable consequences, including the deaths of hundreds of thousands of people. The agreement was aimed at increasingly belligerent talk from U.S. President Donald Trump. It was invaded because it failed to protect its borders. All the conventional weapons that were displayed on Armed Forces Day are useless against North Korea's latest weapons. This is simply childish.
President Trump isn't backing down from his fight with North Korea, in fact, he's upping the odds.
"We are opposed to any war on the Korean peninsula, and the worldwide community will never allow a war (which would) plunge people into an abyss of misery", Chinese foreign minister Lu Kang said on Saturday.
