NoKor tests new rocket engine

While that's largely in line with prior USA positions, Tillerson's recent comments - and Twitter posts from President Donald Trump - suggest the level of anxiety over North Korea is rising. While he did not refer specifically to the rocket-engine test, he said Kim Jong-un was "acting very, very badly".

Current US president spent his weekend in Mar-a-lago resort.

Neither Tillerson nor Xi addressed a Twitter message Trump posted Friday, in which the president stated that China had "done little to help" the US efforts to contain North Korea's nuclear program. He said the situation was at a new cross-roads with two scenarios - a deterioration to war or a diplomatic solution.

The newly developed high-thrust engine will help the country achieve world-class satellite launch capability, according to the country's official media service KCNA.

As aerospace engineer John Schilling wrote in January, North Korea's primary space launch vehicle, the Unha-3, "could be pressed into service as a crude ICBM". According to CNN, Japanese schools are conducting drills to prepare students for the possibility of a North Korean strike on USA troops stationed throughout the country. North Korea is one of just four United Nations members not party to the Chemical Weapons Convention, which bans its use.

Kim Dong-yub, another expert on North Korean affairs who is based in South Korea, also signalled that test shows a worrying progress.

It said the President also met with military personnel. Nor is Pyongyang's threats to use nuclear weapons against the United States.

China says the system's powerful radar will extend into the country's northeast and potentially track Chinese missile launches, and maybe even intercept them.

North Korea on Monday hinted at additional provocations by vowing that it will continue to take nuclear deterrent steps against the U.S.' hard-line policy toward it. Russian Federation also opposes the system, for the same reasons.
