'High possibility' of conflict with North Korea, says new South Korean President

U.S. President Donald Trump expressed his support for engagement with North Korea to make peace - under the right conditions - to President Moon Jae-in's special envoy to Washington Wednesday.

Moon made the comments after stating that he wanted to reopen the channels of communication with the North.

"The reality is that there is a high possibility of a military conflict at the NLL [Northern Limit Line] and military demarcation line", Moon was quoted as saying by Reuters, adding that Seoul is capable of striking back in case of attack.

President Donald Trump is looking to both China and Russian Federation, the two permanent members on the Security Council that have historically been most sympathetic to North Korea, to join the USA -backed campaign of diplomatic and economic pressure on the North to get it to denuclearize.

China says its influence has been exaggerated and has called on South Korea and the U.S.to end large-scale wargames seen as threatening by North Korea in exchange for the North suspending its missile launches and nuclear tests.

Mr Hong said South Korea had not yet received official word from Washington on whether Seoul should pay for an anti-missile U.S. radar system that has been deployed outside Seoul.

Kim started the press conference praising the North's successful ballistic missile launch last weekend, which experts said demonstrated a significant technological jump — with the rocket flying higher and for a longer period of time.
