US to hit back if NKorea tests missile: US envoy

The top US envoy to South Korea said Wednesday that Washington would hit back if North Korea test-fired a missile capable of reaching the United States.

Ambassador Alexander Vershbow said Washington was monitoring preparations for a long-range missile test that have reportedly been under way for more than a month at a remote launch pad in northeastern North Korea.

"We can see the preparations but we cannot read their mind as to what they are intending to do," Vershbow said in an interview with state-run KBS radio.

But "since it would be clearly a provocative step vis-a-vis the region and international community, we could not simply let it pass without some response."

He said consultations would take place with partners to the six-party talks with North Korea before a decision would be made on an appropriate response.

On-off talks on ending the North Korea nuclear standoff have brought together the two Koreas, China, Japan, Russia and the United States since August 2003.

The six partners in the talks would "consider different possible responses, whether they will be political or other kinds of responses," he said.

South Korea's foreign minister urged Pyongyang to abandon plans for the missile test that would have a "negative impact on the international geopolitical situation and the settlement of North Korea's nuclear issue."

"It is appropriate for North Korea to stop preparations for the missile launch and return to six-party talks," Ban Ki-Moon told a weekly media briefing.

A senior South Korean official who declined to be named earlier confirmed reports that North Korea was preparing to test-fire a Taepodong-2 multi-stage missile with a range of more than 6,000 kilometres (3,600 miles) that was capable of hitting the United States.

"Preparations which were reported last month have not stopped," the official said.

Separately a US official was quoted as saying there were "enough indications" to suggest that the Stalinist state was preparing to test-fire the missile.

Ban declined to say how far North Korea's launch preparations had progressed and gave no estimate of when a launch could be ready, but he said South Korea was closely watching developments.

Current test preparations are reportedly far more advanced than on previous occasions when North Korea appeared to be gearing up for a missile launch.

In 1998 the nation shocked the world by launching a Taepodong-1 missile that flew over Japan before crashing into the Pacific.

The 1998 launch triggered jitters in Japan and prompted Tokyo and Washington to accelerate plans to build a missile defense system.

Vershbow said North Korea should abide by a long-range missile moratorium declared by its leader Kim Jong-Il in 1999.

"We really call upon North Korea to abide by the moratorium on flight tests of long range missiles," he said.

"If they were to test a long-range missile now it would be a very serious matter and we will consider it to be very much against the spirit of the September agreement of the six party talks."

North Korea agreed at six-party talks in September to dismantle its nuclear weapons programme in return for economic aid and other benefits.

But in November Pyongyang said it would boycott further talks after Washington imposed financial sanctions for alleged counterfeiting and money laundering.

Some experts say North Korea, aware that launch preparations are easily monitored by US satellite, wants to use the threat of a test-flight to force Washington to roll back the sanctions.

Reports of a possible launch surfaced last month in Japanese and South Korean newspapers. They said US satellite images showed increased movement by trailers and other vehicles near the Musudan-ri missile test site in northeastern North Korea, facing the Sea of Japan (East Sea).

"We really don't know what are the intentions of chairman Kim Jong-Il or any other military leaders in North Korea," said Vershbow.

"But as I said we want them to understand that tests in light of other problems that we have in our relations with North Korea will be viewed as a very serious matter and we will take appropriate measures in response."

We'll just test one right back at them, and we'll keep testing them until we are absolutely sure that they work at least 90 percent of the time.

Maybe one day you'll listen to my warnings. I hope you don't think it's a coincidence that North Korea is going to be testing a missile while US officials are underground and the largest US naval exercise since vietnam is to taking place off Guam.

Iran is a distraction that the majority of you have fallen for.

If one puts this test with the upcoming run for the underground bunkers for USA governmnet workers in the eastern hills, I hope 1+1 in this case, does not equal 2.

Re: US to hit back if NKorea tests missile: US envoy
it can hit parts of the united states, though they are also supposedly developing a third version of the missle which is multi-stage and will be able to hit most of the continental united states, although that version is a few more years off. (not really that long of a time if you ask me)

I guess 'no' other country in the world is allowed to be able to defend themselves.Just more typical 'Bush' thinking being forced on the rest of the world.Who's to say that before Bush leaves office he won't start WW3 and launch on countries that have done no wrong to any other country.

Re: US to hit back if NKorea tests missile: US envoy
i can't really say that i blame them.

I really don't believe N Korea is responsible enough to own such weapons. I mean it is a military dictatorship.
Granted Bush is quite insane and America has used a nuke before and does take part in wars in the middle east that are not really supported by the major developed nations or NATO.
But I truely believe that pong yang is quite a psycopath, and would be quite likely,easily provoked into using such misslies like the short sighted blind selfish fool he probably is.

although there is a slim chance that N Korea is a civilized contry worthy of owning such missiles as self defence as ghost hunter says they should be, i think thats doubtfull.

Re: US to hit back if NKorea tests missile: US envoy
So North Korea is to be punished probably bombed thousands killed because they are testing a defensive missile..

So it seems again America is telling the world that anyone who dares build a defensive capability are to be attacked?

But America is allowed to keep its own?

Another fine example of why the world will arm themselves, who the f/k is America to tell who can and cannot defend themselves yet keep arming itself in the process.

But i also know enough to say America is nothing more than a play ground bully, always picks the smallest weakest kid to fight..America shits and runs at every turn when it comes to a fight that can hit back hard.

N.K can hit back as can Iran..I look forward to the demise of Americas power as i am sure many others do.

This is not a hate that speaks, but a wish to see an end to the most evil regime the world has, namely the zionist led Bush regime.

And all the time the clock ticks Americans sit back and expect all to be fine..

I hope to fuck Americans do stand up and take back whats theirs from the hands of thse lunatics.

Re: US to hit back if NKorea tests missile: US envoy
phil, inter continental balistic missles weather nuclear tipped, bio or chem tipped, are NOT DEFENSIVE WEAPONS!!!

They are designed specifically to KILL AS MANY PEOPLE AS POSSIBLE AND MUCH DAMAGE AS POSSIBLE! thwak gangup

Now if they were testing an anti missile, missile system like the patriot or arrow, or any kindof missile sheild technology for that matter,, then it would cirtainly be a DEFENSIVE weapon.


ok?

Re: US to hit back if NKorea tests missile: US envoy
lets face it, what kind of a military wants to put all its money on defensive missile sheilds..
The truth is,, no contry has an effective anti balistic missile sheild, Infact its the opposite, most deveolped nations have many very capable ICBM OFFENSIVE missiles.


Its the threat of mutual assured destruction that saves us by acting as a sort of psycological defensive weapon..
The missiles themselfs re designed as offensive weapons..

Because the dumbass human race just loves to destroy eachother.
