"There are 25 million people living in Seoul", Daines told Fox News.

South Korea expects more provocative acts by North Korea next month, to coincide with the anniversary of the founding of the North Korean communist party and China's all-important Communist Party Congress.

South Korea urged the United States to help dial down tensions with the North on Monday, after Pyongyang accused President Donald Trump of declaring war.

North Korea has threatened to shoot down American bombers, even over worldwide waters, due to a perceived threat from President Donald Trump.

"Since the United States declared war on our country, we will have every right to make countermeasures, including the right to shoot down United States strategic bombers even when they are not inside the airspace border of our country", Pyongyang's top diplomat had said.

"Short-term, its hard to expect markets to recover fast (from North Korea related jitters)", Hwang said, adding that his team will be on stand-by to provide policy responses to any escalations that occur over the long Chuseok holiday from October 2 through October 9, when local financial markets will be closed. North Koreans can launch artillery within seconds and hit Seoul. "After speaking with commanders on the ground, both the US and South Korean military are unified in their resolve".

Trump said these players are "ruining the game". "You need to have a great wall, but it has to be see-through", Trump said. She also said Strange's appointment by then-Gov. "I think that's going to be the way we grow out of this".

Pyongyang conducted its sixth and largest nuclear test on Sept 3 and has launched dozens of missiles this year as it accelerates a programme aimed at enabling it to target the United States with a nuclear-tipped missile.

South Korean lawmakers said Chung had told them the United States and South Korea had agreed on the rotational deployment of US strategic assets to South Korea, possibly as soon as year-end.

"South Korea's external financial soundness has improved to a large extent after overcoming the previous crises in 1997 and 2008", said Hwang.

Moon said he had opposed the deployment of U.S. Terminal High Altitude Area Defence (THAAD) system in South Korea, but rapid improvement in North Korea's missile capabilities prompted the decision.

"That's why it's so important we put all the economic pressure and diplomatic pressure we can on North Korea for a peaceful resolution and denuclearization of the peninsula", Daines added.
