Merkel suggests Iran-style nuclear talks to end North Korea crisis

Meanwhile, North Korea shows no signs of ending its nuclear and ballistic missile tests, calling its recent nuclear test and other "self-defense" measures a "gift package" for the USA, warning that others are on the way if Washington continues its "reckless provocations".

"These disturbances are more numerous and widespread than what we have seen from any of the five tests North Korea previously conducted", it said. Trump's offer to sell more arms, made in a Tuesday tweet, underscored his message in a weekend call with South Korean President Moon Jae-in.

A Seongju police official says police have dispersed most of the protesters and the US military will be able to move four launchers and construction equipment into the site soon.

The proposal would also freeze all foreign financial assets belonging to Kim and North Korea. "But I can tell you that North Korea is behaving badly, and its got to stop", he said.

The rollout was "temporarily" completed Thursday, a spokesman for South Korea's Defence Ministry said, adding it was necessary to counter increased threats from North Korea.

China and Russian Federation have advocated a "freeze for freeze" plan, where the United States and Seoul stop major military drills in exchange for North Korea halting its weapons programmes, but neither side is willing to budge.

At the conclusion of the meeting, Haley said that the United States would circulate a resolution in response to the nuclear test, with plans for a vote on it next week.

Russian Federation has rebuffed USA calls for new United Nations sanctions while Washington has promised its allies advanced weaponry.

The leaders, meeting in Vladivostok, Russia, also agreed on coordinating bilaterally and with the United States, their mutual security ally, to call on China and Russia in dealing with threats from North Korea, according to a Japanese official who was at the talks.

Despite the North's fiery rhetoric, South Koreans are generally calm, going about their lives with no sign of panic.

"If our participation in talks is desired, I will immediately say yes", Merkel told Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung in an interview to be published on Sunday.

Gallup also said 59 percent of respondents were against the idea of the United States attacking North Korea first should North Korean provocations continue, while 33 percent said it should.

Xi said: "Facts have repeatedly proven that the Korean Peninsula issue can only be resolved through peaceful means, including dialogue and consultation". The US military said the four remaining Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) batteries would be deployed on a golf course in the south of the country on Thursday.

South Korea installed the four remaining launchers of a United States anti-missile Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) system on a former golf course south of its capital, Seoul, early on Thursday.
