S. Korea President says conflict with the North a ‘high possibility’

South Korean President Moon Jae-in said there was a “high possibility” of conflict with North Korea on May 17.

This comes after North Korea conducted its latest ballistic missile launch on Sunday, May 14.

Moon said the North’s nuclear and missile capabilities seem to have advanced rapidly recently but that the South was ready and capable of striking back should the North attack.

His comments about conflict come as he is trying to seek a two-track policy, involving sanctions and dialogue, to try to rein in his neighbour.

The North conducted its latest ballistic missile launch, in defiance of U.N. Security Council resolutions, which it said was a test of its capability to carry a “large-size heavy nuclear warhead,” drawing Security Council condemnation.
