Seoul offers military talks with Pyongyang

If the government meeting goes ahead, it will mark the first official inter-Korea talks since December 2015. But he has achieved little progress, with North Korea test-firing a series of newly developed missiles.

"[The South Korean government] hopes North Korea will reply to our proposal by restoring the [inter-Korean] military communication line in the region of the West Sea which is currently severed", Suh said.

BEIJING―China insisted Thursday it was abiding by UN sanctions on North Korea despite a jump in its trade with the nuclear-armed nation that comes amid the growing US calls for Beijing to rein in its neighbor.

Moon has said he will use both dialogue and pressure to resolve the standoff over North Korea's nuclear and missile programs. The success of these measures has been limited, and Chinese commitment to cooperating with them has come under question.

The North has yet to issue an official statement. But he also stressed that, "we need to see what sanctions are most successful".

China's Foreign Ministry denounced the move, with spokesman Lu Kang saying Beijing was "against other countries imposing long-arm jurisdiction over Chinese entities or individuals based on their domestic law".

No details have been released.

After the launch, Kim said he would never negotiate his weapons programs unless the United States abandons its hostile policy toward his country.

North Korean ruling party newspaper the Rodong Sinmun published an extended editorial dismissing recent overtures by Seoul as "sophistry".

In late June, Washington imposed secondary sanctions on two Chinese citizens and a shipping company for helping North Korea's nuclear and missile programs and accused a regional Chinese bank, the Bank of Dandong, of laundering money for Pyongyang.

North Korea now has multiple paths to achieve a nuclear warhead ICBM.

"The reunion of separated families should take precedence over any political considerations", Cho told assembled media.

Secretary of Defense James Mattis warned in May that taking military action against North Korea would result in a conflict that would be "tragic on an unbelievable scale", adding that the goal is a diplomatic solution. The photographs show the brutal reality of battling North Korea's evil regime: could this happen again? But the US Treasury Department accused it of doing business with North Korea in 2012.

He's made no public statements regarding the accusation.

Haley explained that diplomacy is the plan, but the window of opportunity for a diplomatic solution is closing rapidly.

"If Trump were to give up on Chinese support in terms of containing North Korea, then there's a risk of increased trade tensions between the U.S. and China, which could negatively impact China's overall export performance", said Julian Evans-Pritchard, China economist at Capital Economics.

The South Korean Red Cross on Monday proposed talks with the North to discuss reunions of family members separated during the Korean War.

The proposed meetings would be a "rare opportunity to ease tension that has built up for 10 years", said Cheong Seong-Chang, of the South's Sejong Institute think tank.

"The hermit nation's leader Kim Jong Un referred to the ICBM test as a "package of gifts" on U.S Independence Day".

Beijing accounts for about 85% of Pyongyang's imports, according to UN data, providing a key lifeline for the North Korean economy. Trump tweeted on July 5. He called out the almost 40% increase in trade in the first three months of the year, on Twitter, last week.
