USA conducts computer war games in response to North Korea missile launch

Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull says the global community is united in standing up to North Korea

Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull says the global community is united in standing up to North Korea

The journalists were reviewing a new Korean edition of North Korea Confidential, which was written by two British journalists based in Seoul.

North Korea on Tuesday flew a potentially nuclear-capable Hwasong-12 intermediate range missile over northern Japan and later called it a "meaningful prelude" to containing the USA territory of Guam.

Here's what you need to know about what has occurred since the launch by North Korea.

The Central Court in North Korea said purely by reviewing the book, the journalists "committed a ugly crime of seriously insulting the dignity of the DPRK" and claimed it was part of a "sordid smear campaign".

Preliminary reports said North Korea had launched three missiles in the most recent round.

This was Pyongyang's 13th ballistic missile launch in 2017.

"South Korean and U.S. air forces conducted an air interdiction exercise in order to strongly cope with North Korea's repeated firing of ballistic missiles and development of nuclear weapons", the South's air force said in a statement.

The defence ministry added: "There's a possibility of strategic provocations, including additional ballistic missile launches and a sixth nuclear test". Experts say Kim wants a real nuclear deterrent against the United States to ensure the survival of his government and likely believes that it will strengthen his negotiating position when North Korea returns to talks.

Russian Federation has urged the USA to refrain from any military actions on the Korean peninsula that would be "fraught with unpredictable consequences".

"The US imperialists and the South Korean puppet forces do not hide their bellicose nature, claiming that the exercises are to "counter" the DPRK's ballistic rocket launches and nuclear weapons development", North Korea's KCNA news agency said, referring to the acronym for the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, the official name for the country.

Referring to a plan by Japan and the United States to adopt a new Security Council sanctions resolution that may include a ban on oil exports to North Korea, Kono said there are differences in approach with China and Russian Federation. South Koreans Vice Defense Minister Suh Choo-suk told lawmakers on Thursday that North Korea might have fired the missile at about half its maximum range.
