The South Korean military established a "decapitation" brigade Friday created to eliminate North Korea's leadership in case of an emergency on the peninsula, defense ministry officials revealed.

News about the launch comes within days of North Korea launching a new type of intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM).

"Should the Korean peninsula and the world be embroiled in the crucible of nuclear war because of the reckless nuclear war mania of the U.S., the USA will have to accept full responsibility for it", North Korea's state-run Korean Central News Agency said Saturday, citing a statement by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

With every missile launch or nuclear test, Kim has improved his country's capabilities, McMaster said. Throughout the training about 12,000 personnel will demonstrate wartime defenses and airstrikes on mock North Korean nuclear and missile targets. It has been set up under the South Korean army's Special Warfare Command.

The missile is said to have flown almost 2,800 miles high and for a distance of more than 600 miles.

Graham expressed confidence in the Trump administration's ability to manage the growing conflict with North Korea.

The North says the Hwasong-15 missile can be tipped with a "super-large heavy warhead" capable of striking the whole USA mainland.

The initial analysis shows Tuesday's launch likely involved a two-stage missile with a non-explosive dummy warhead, the official said.

It is likely the ballistic missile, fired higher than any previous North Korean missile, broke up as it re-entered Earth's atmosphere, the official said.

Technical analysis of the missile flight is ongoing, but the USA official said "the North Koreans had problems with re-entry".

"I would need to see a bit more differences to fully believe they made this themselves", Dave Schmerler, a research associate at the James Martin Centre for Nonproliferation Studies, said of the launch transport vehicle.

But the national security adviser said Kim was extremely unlikely to change his behavior "without some significant new actions in the form of much more severe sanctions" and "complete enforcement of the sanctions that are in place".

He pushed China to do more, including cutting off North Korean oil imports.
