But, the reclusive nation's ambassador to India, Kye Chun Yong, has told Indian TV that it is prepared to halt its weapons testing program if the United States stops its military exercises in the region. It also conducted two nuclear tests past year as it pursues development of a long-range nuclear missile that could reach the US mainland.

"For instance, if the American side completely stops big, large-scale military exercises temporarily or permanently, then we will also temporarily stop". Moon's decision to reveal the details to the foreign media ahead of the South Korea-US summit was seen as meant to stress that the environmental impact assessment he ordered for the THAAD site was an unavoidable measure to guarantee the deployment's procedural legitimacy and transparency.

"[US President Donald] Trump said they have so many options on the table in addition to military way".

South Korea's military plans to deploy the Hyunmoo-2, which is created to hit targets as far as 800 kilometers (500 miles) away, after conducting two more test launches.

Key explained that his country's ongoing nuclear programme was "an arduous choice, an inevitable choice to prevent another Korean war in the region". One official said he believed the test had taken place within the past 24 hours, Reuters reported.

On Tuesday, he embraced a similar idea, telling CBS News in an interview that a freeze could be a way station to a second phase of talks that would "achieve the complete dismantling of North Korea's nuclear programme".

South Korea has tested the missile four times and will have it ready to use after two additional tests, Moon's office said.

"Clearly, we're moving further away, not closer, to those conditions being enacted", Mr Spicer told reporters.

The shock announcement comes as the USA and China began high-level security talks on the Korean crisis after the release of an American student who died after being held in the North for 17 months.

"World Taekwondo replaces the World Taekwondo Federation as the name of the global federation and reflects its commitment to evolving and adapting to remain relevant with today's modern audiences", it said in a statement.

When asked about DPRK's allies, the ambassador said that China is a friend and so is India.
