USA military options for North Korea have recently been updated and are ready to be presented to President Donald Trump if Pyongyang conducts an underground nuclear or ballistic missile test that indicates the regime has made a significant progress towards developing a weapon that could attack the United States, two US military officials told CNN.

On arrival in Washington, Moon started his itinerary with a visit to the National Museum of the Marine Corps in Quantico, Virginia.

He stressed the need for a firm South Korea-U.S. alliance, a strong security and a thorough management of security crisis to prevent any DPRK military provocations.

The battle is considered to be one of the fiercest in the 1950-53 Korean War.

He said: 'There is nothing more tragic for a parent than to lose a child in the prime of life.

A defense official said the particularly concerned by North Korea's increased ability to hide its testing from the USA until the last minute.

"The Republic of Korea remembers your and your parents' sacrifice and dedication".

Listen closely to what US officials like to say about America's long security alliance with South Korea, where 28,000 USA troops are stationed in bases around the country.

Moon has vowed to reform the country's prosecutors' office by making it more independent from politics.

North Korea promises

USA automakers' access to South Korea has been a sore point in trade relations for years.

Japanese Foreign Minister Fumio Kishida insisted in a speech here Tuesday that "both the Japanese and the South Korean governments have a responsibility to adhere to the agreement".

"I think the trade is well balanced between the two countries through the deal struck during the Roh administration, and a subsequent revision based on a renegotiation", Moon said. The Trump administration believes it can work closely with the South Korean government to implement a coordinated effort in dealing with the regime.

While the White House official said "South Korea in many respects is the model ally" in terms of defense spending, Trump himself said as recently as April that South Korea should pay for the billion dollar THAAD system.

Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross on Wednesday applauded an announcement by South Korea's Samsung Electronics Co. that it will invest $380 million in a new home-appliances facility in SC that will create 954 US -based jobs. It is not a mere promise made with a signature on a few pieces of paper.

North Korea, China and deployment of USA missile defense system in South Korea main issues. The official visit will conclude with a lunch between President Moon and the VPOTUS.

Marcus Noland, an expert on North Korea at the Peterson Institute for International Economics in Washington, D.C., told UPI in a phone interview the United States and South Korea are on a "potentially unsafe trajectory at this point" because of different approaches to North Korea.

The reports led to the belief that regime change was possible in North Korea, despite contrary reports that suggested the situation in North Korea was stable.
