South Koreans march to protest US missile defence system

South Korean Finance Minister Kim Dong-yeon speaks during his inaugural ceremony in Sejong government complex in Sejong South Korea

South Korea began developing Hyunmoo-2 after a 2012 agreement with its ally, the United States, to increase the range of its weapons to 800km and raise the warhead limit to 500kg. Moon's government wants North Korea to attend the Pyeongchang Games and has proposed various ideas to use its participation as a way promote peace on the divided Korean Peninsula.

South Korean President Moon Jae-in says his country needs "the security capability to dominate North Korea".

A North Korean soldier defected across the Military Demarcation Line (MDL) - the heavily fortified border separating North and South Korea - late on Friday evening, according to South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS).

North Korea called U.S. President Donald Trump a psychopath, after Trump described their treatment of Otto Warmbier, a 22-year-old American student who died after a year in North Korean captivity, a disgrace.

North Korea has conducted five nuclear tests since 2006, including two previous year.

The soldier expressed his desire to defect when he reached the guard post and was questioned by the South Korean Army officers before being presented to the Ministry of Unification authorities, in charge of managing defections. Trump said in a tweet earlier this week.

An ICBM is a guided ballistic missile, conventionally named for their minimum range of 5,500 kilometers or 3,400 miles. Speakers told those gathered that the USA had never been able to subdue North Korea under former leader Kim Jong Il, and urged them to remain loyal to his son and current leader, Kim John Un.

"Our people will feel proud and safe after seeing that our missile capability doesn't trail North Korea's", Park quoted Moon as saying. Voicing strong displeasure with the Obama administration's "strategic patience" approach of refusing to agree to dialogue before any concrete denuclearization measures took place, North Korea signaled its intent to have dialogue with the next administration after Obama, regardless of whether Trump or Hillary Clinton was elected.

Warmbier, who was imprisoned on charges that he attempted to steal a propaganda banner while touring North Korea, was already in a coma by the time the hermit kingdom's officials returned him to the United States last week. Two months later, he was sentenced to 15 years of hard labor, accused of committing a "hostile act" by trying to steal a political poster from his hotel in Pyongyang, the North Korean capital.
