South Korean President Moon Jae-in on Monday met visiting top US General Joseph Dunford to discuss the North Korea issue. Indeed, the good intentions of Moon towards political and military elites in Pyongyang seems unnoticed by North Korea.

In a ceremony marking the 72nd anniversary of the country's liberation from Japanese colonial rule (1910-1945), Moon said that the government will prevent an armed conflict "at all cost", addressing the increasing public concerns of a possible war between the United States and North Korea.

Pyongyang tested two intercontinental ballistic missiles last month.

During this year's war games in March, North Korea launched four extended-range Scud missiles into the sea in what it described as a rehearsal for striking US military bases in Japan.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov warned Wednesday "we can't support ideas by some of our partners to suffocate North Korea economically with all the negative and tragic humanitarian consequences for its citizens".

The military drills are set to begin on August 21.

The move followed the announcement of United Nations sanctions against North Korea this month which have to be enforced within 30 days by member-states.

North Korea claims it has successfully miniaturized a nuclear weapon.

"The joint declaration for a nuclear-free peninsula has (already) been scrapped by the North, and I believe it has become virtually meaningless for us to hold fast to it", Chung Woo-taik, the party whip, said during the meeting.

"The president noted the current security conditions on the Korean Peninsula constituted a more serious, real and urgent threat than ever created by the advancement in North Korea's nuclear and missile technologies", the spokesman told a press briefing. This prompted Kim to announce a plan to test fire four intermediate-range missiles into waters near Guam - a US territory in the Pacific that is home to American military bases.

"I think that given their regularity and given their history they should not be seen in any way as a provocative exercise", Payne added, referring to the rising tension on the Korean peninsula and the recent exchange of threats between Kim Jong-un and US President Donald Trump. "We are closely monitoring every move by the United States".

The top US military officer said Monday that the United States wants to peacefully resolve a deepening standoff with North Korea but is also ready to use the "full range" of its military capabilities in case of provocation.

"If they shoot at the United States, I'm assuming they hit the United States - if they do that, then it's "game on", he said.

"We will, without fail, continue to abide by the principle that we ourselves are the key players in dealing with problems on the Korean Peninsula", he said.
