North Korea says it 'will go to war' if United States provokes it

An official from South Korea's Defense Ministry couldn't immediately confirm whether the rocket was a new ICBM.

State television showed Kim, wearing a black suit and white shirt, clapping in delight along with senior government officials to acknowledge the thousands of soldiers and civilians taking part in the parade at Kim Il Sung Square in the capital, Pyongyang.

A North Korean missile exploded during launch Sunday from the country's east coast, USA and South Korean officials said, a high-profile failure that comes as a powerful US aircraft carrier approaches the Korean Peninsula in a show of force.

The parade of the Korean People's Army has begun at the Kim Il Sung central square in the capital of North Korea, a TASS correspondent reported.

Carl Vinson is sailing to Korea now -- it wasn't before
The deployment of the Carl Vinson Strike Group will be extended for at least 30 days as the ship heads to the Korean Peninsula. Navy - the carrier passed north through the Sunda Strait , the passage between the Indonesian islands of Sumatra and Java.

"We're prepared to respond to an all-out war with an all-out war", North Korean military official Choe Ryong-Hae said, adding: "We are ready to hit back with nuclear attacks of our own style against any nuclear attacks".

North Korea, still technically at war with the South after their 1950-53 conflict ended in a truce but not a treaty, has on occasion conducted missile or nuclear tests to coincide with big political events and often threatens the United States, South Korea and Japan. That decision of the U.S. administration caused serious concerns of the North Korean leadership, which does not exclude the possibility of a missile strike by the US.

North Korea warned it would not cave in to Donald Trump 's demands over missile tests, sparking fears that a devastating war with the USA was only a matter of time.

The isolated dictatorship celebrated the 105th birthday of its late founder with a massive military parade displaying what appeared to be previously-unseen KN-08 and KN-14 missiles.

Existing Home Sales Hit Ten-Year High in March with 4.4% Increase
Buyers closed on purchases of 12,245 homes, at an average price of $163,382 - up 6.2 percent from the same month of past year . The consensus estimate called for sales to reach 5.605 million, according to a survey of economists polled by Bloomberg.

On its website, the group said: "Commercial satellite imagery of North Korea's Punggye-ri nuclear test site from 12 April shows continued activity around the site's command centre".

North Korea has warned the United States not to take provocative action in the region, saying it is "ready to hit back with nuclear attacks", reports BBC. The United States, South Korea and other countries have vowed to apply more pressure on the North, but so far nothing has worked to stop Pyongyang's nuclear program.

The North's warning, carried by its state-run KCNA news agency, came as leader Kim Jong-un arrived at Pyongyang's main Kim Il-sung Square, named after his grandfather, for a military parade marking the "Day of the Sun".

The isolated country is now preparing a military parade in honor of 105th birthday of the country's founder Kim Il-Sung on Saturday. The North conducted its fifth such test last September. China, on the other hand, acts as an economic bedrock for North Korea. This would allow North Korea to prevent its limited number of ICBM-capable launcher trucks from being damaged during launches and also make the missiles harder to detect after they're fired, he said.

Fox Will Investigate Sexual Harassment Claims Against Bill O'Reilly
