The ministry spokeswoman also said China favors an end to the U.S. "This is a true threat to every country in the world".
"(President Trump) talked about sanctions on North Korea and cooperative relations with China. The two agree on the larger goal of a nuclear-free North, and both have said they are open to talks under the right conditions.
The North has vowed to develop a missile mounted with a nuclear warhead that can strike the U.S. mainland, saying the programme is necessary to counter American aggression.
Mr. Moon's comments came hours after the South, which hosts 28,500 U.S. troops, said it wanted to reopen a channel of dialogue with North Korea as the South Korean president seeks a two-track policy involving sanctions and dialogue to try to rein in its neighbor. Trump and Moon have both also warned that a major conflict with the North is possible. So if North Korea is willing to stop taking actions to defend itself then the USA might talk to them.
"North Korea seems to be very aware of the USA attack on Syria, it quoted Jiro Ishimaru, editor for North Korean magazine Rimjingang as saying, according to South Korea's Yonhap News Agency".
But Kim Dong-yub, professor at South Korea's Kyungnam University, told local media that they'd be lucky to reach Alaska or Hawaii, at best.
Even though plans for the U.S. missile defense system on the Korean Peninsula have been slammed by China and Russian Federation which deem it detrimental to their security, Chinese state media and North Korea's official news agency have recently been engaged in a war of words.
"It is actually North Korea trying to intimidate the worldwide community", Haley said, "and Russian Federation itself should be concerned because that ballistic missile test was a signal to South Korea for their new elections, it was a signal to Russian Federation in how close it got, it was a signal to Japan being in the region, and it was a signal to us".
Haley noted that this weekend's missile came within 60 miles of Russia's border and said Russian Federation is "all wrong".
North Korea has now carried out three failed and four successful rocket launches since the start of the Trump Administration.
"What we do know is the worldwide community is concern".
"Well, I think you first have to get into Kim Jong-un's head, you know, which is he's in a state of paranoia", Haley, the United States' ambassador to the United Nations, said on "This Week," about the North Korean leader. Although it was reported by the U.S.as having landed just 60 miles from the Russian naval city of Vladivostok, Russia later dismissed the test as no threat and actually splashing into the Pacific over 300 miles from Russian territory.
