US Defense Secretary Jim Mattis and South Korean counterpart Song Young-moo talked about the reintroduction of the nuclear arms deployment in South Korea during a visit of the South Korean defense minister in Washington. The move could bring the tension in the Korean peninsula to a higher level of risk in the conflict, warned experts.

North Korea Kim Jong-un ‘begging for war'

The rogue nation's stance on the nuclear test and missile launches is an act that is "begging for war", said Nikki Haley, US ambassador to the United Nations. The South Korean Defense Ministry warned that Kim's regime could be preparing for another Inter-Continental Ballistic Missile launch into the Pacific Ocean, a rocket that could possibly reach the US mainland.

South Korean President Moon Jae-in stood against the return of nuclear armament in the arsenals of South Korea. Conservative South Korean leaders opposed the president's stand.

China and Russia proposed a ‘freeze for freeze' solution

The "freeze for freeze" solution of China and Russia means that the US alliance will have to temporarily discontinue the joint military exercises with South Korea. In the same way, North Korea will have to suspend its nuclear program.

Haley said that the "freeze for freeze" proposal of the two superpowers is unacceptable to the United States and her allies.

The possession of a nuclear weapon and ICBMs aimed at the US and her alliances and the submission to the proposal means lowering the alliance's guards and defenses against North Korea, reports the Washington Post. At a UN security council assembly, Haley constantly pressed for stiffer sanctions against North Korea.

The sixth nuclear test by Kim's rogue nation

Early this month, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea had its sixth nuclear test near its Punggye-Ri nuclear test site. The US Geological Survey picked up seismic signals at a magnitude of 6.3 on the Richter scale, depicting a massive blast of a hydrogen bomb.

The thermonuclear (hydrogen) bomb detonation last September 3, 2017, heightened tensions a notch higher as it sent warning signals to the US and its alliances.

The North Korean leadership personally signed the commencement of the test. The NK regime confirmed the tremors was a result of its hydrogen bomb blast in the northeastern region of the peninsula, reports DPR.

The UN Security Council have new sets of sanctions on the North Korean Government. Kim Jong-un stubbornly expressed that the move will only expedite the NK nuclear program and weapons development.
