SEOUL - South Korean President Moon Jae-in and his US counterpart Donald Trump agreed on Monday to lift the warhead weight limit on South Korea's missiles in the wake of North Korea's sixth nuclear test, South Korea's presidential office said.

Under the existing missile pact between the United States and South Korea, Seoul's missile warheads currently face a cap of 500 kg.The two presidents made the decision in a phone call, a statement from the Blue House said, where they also agreed now is the time to apply the strongest sanctions and pressure on North Korea and that stronger sanctions would be pursued at the United Nations.



South Korea said earlier in the day it was talking to the United States about deploying aircraft carriers and strategic bombers to the Korean peninsula after signs North Korea might launch more missiles.
