The powerful sister of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un days earlier said the North Korea would demolish a 'useless' inter-Korean liaison office in the border town of Kaesong.
South Korea's government, which has a mixed record of tracking Pyongyang's ruling elite, repeatedly downplayed speculation that Kim, believed to be 36, was in poor health following surgery.
There has been widespread speculation about the "deteriorating health" and absence of Kim in the media, particularly in the US, over the last week or so.
The president was referring to a 2018 historic summit he held with Kim in Singapore. The two adopted a vaguely worded statement on "complete denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula" and agreed to 'establish new US-DPRK relations'.
A self-imposed ban on such tests -- Kim declared they were no longer needed -- has been at the centrepiece of the nuclear diplomacy between Pyongyang and Washington over the last two years, which has seen three meetings between Kim and US President Donald Trump, but little tangible progress.
The protesters were demanding the Governor to give his assent to the proposed ordinance that seeks mandatory registration of outsiders entering the state and at the same time for the Centre to implement the Inner Line Permit in the state.
US ambassador tells UN security council it must ‘act accordingly’ if the regime does not turn away from hostility and threats.
The Korean Central News Agency released many photos showing Kim taking a horse riding to snow-covered Mount Paektu along with his wife and other top lieutenants, also on white horses.
Kim has often visited Mount Paektu, the highest point on the Korean Peninsula, before making major decisions such as the 2013 execution of his powerful uncle and his 2018 entrance into diplomacy with Seoul and Washington.
The White House is clarifying comments made by President Donald Trump during a news conference in France.
Kim said the "newly developed" system was a "great weapon," and expressed "high appreciation" for the scientists who had designed and built it, the country's official Korean Central News Agency said.
Defence officials in Seoul said Pyongyang fired what appeared to be two short-range ballistic missiles Friday, that flew some 230 kilometres (140 miles) before splashing down in the sea between the Korean peninsula and Japan.
The elections that took place on Sunday look to project democratic legitimacy, even though watchdogs say candidates were preselected and ran unopposed.
South Korea's president on Monday called a recent U.S.-North Korean summit at the Korean border, an end of mutual hostility between the countries, despite skepticism that it's was a just made-for-TV moment that lacked any substance.
In a historic moment, Trump walked across the concrete blocks dividing North and South Korean territory in the Demilitarized Zone that divides the peninsula.
Kim Hyok Chol, who laid the groundwork for the Hanoi meeting and accompanied Kim on his private train, was executed by firing squad for ‘betraying the supreme leader’ after he was turned by the US.
The missile test, North Korea's first since 2017, serves as a clear warning of leader Kim Jong-un's frustration at the state of talks with the US, which have been deadlocked since President Donald Trump walked out of their Vietnam summit early in February.
The summit is likely to be held in the Russian port city of Vladivostok, located 300 km from the border between both the countries.
