South Korea creates 'decapitation' unit targeting North's leadership

  • US sends F-22s to join for South Korean air drills

Trump has said he spoke with Chinese President Xi Jinping about Pyongyang's "provocative actions", and he vowed that additional major sanctions will be imposed on North Korea.

Republican U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham on Sunday urged the Pentagon to start moving U.S. military dependents, such as spouses and children, out of South Korea, saying conflict with North Korea is getting close.

The exercises come after last week's test-launch by North Korea of its most powerful intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) yet, though the US-South Korea drills had already been planned.

The US and South Korea will launch a major air force exercise involving hundreds of aircraft on Monday, a move denounced by North Korea for bringing the region to the "brink of nuclear war".

North Korea has boasted - and Western experts agree - that the Hwasong-15 missile tested on Wednesday is capable of reaching the United States, raising the prospect of a direct nuclear threat to Washington.

Amid growing tensions, Washington's National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster says the North's nuclear program is the "greatest immediate threat" to the United States - that the risk of war with North Korea is growing every day, and that Washington is in a race to find a solution.

The brigade is charged with entering Pyongyang to target North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and other senior officials in the country's ruling party if signs of a nuclear attack are detected. It has been set up under the South Korean army's Special Warfare Command.

"Our initial analysis of the photos showed that there were clear differences between the Hwasong-15 and Hwasong-14 in terms of the looks of the warhead, the joint of the first and second stages of the missile, and overall size", Roh told a briefing on Thursday.

It is scheduled to last five days and comes less than a week after the rogue state's latest intercontinental ballistic missile test, which Pyongyang claimed was capable of hitting the U.S. mainland.

A solid-fuel system for an ICBM would be a significant development and could allow the North Koreans to transport and launch a missile more quickly, compared to a liquid-fuel system that requires lengthy preparation. "We're asking China to act in China's interest, as they should, and we believe increasingly that it's in China's urgent interest to do more". A minimum of nine votes are needed to win such a vote and China, Russia, US, Britain and France can not wield their vetoes.
