Korea Lends Helping Hand to North

Korea Lends Helping Hand to North”

When North Korea launched long-range missiles this summer, and again on Friday, demonstrating its ability to strike Guam and perhaps the United States mainland, it powered the weapons with a rare, potent rocket fuel that American intelligence agencies believe initially came from China and Russian Federation.

North Korea's latest missile launch renewed discussion in the Trump administration about how military force could be used to stop Kim's development of nuclear warheads and ballistic missiles.

Mr Rudd outlined three possible scenarios.

In Tokyo, Yoshihide Suga, chief Cabinet secretary to Prime Minister Shinzo Abe of Japan, said that Japan "absolutely can not accept the repeated outrageous provocative actions by North Korea" and lodged an official protest with the North, "conveying the strong fury of the Japanese people as well as condemning the action with the strongest words".

"Any allies can't be on the exact same page on every matter but it's concerning that we are giving the impression that the two countries have different voices", one diplomat said.

The final option was new diplomacy and a grand bargain that went to the bottom line of Chinese concerns.

"If North Korea does not have UDMH, it can not threaten the United States, it's as simple as that", Democratic senator Edward Markey said.

The UN Security Council (UNSC) voted unanimously to impose fresh sanctions on North Korea last week after a meeting on September 11 in response to the crisis.

"We can expect more missile launches", he said.

A senior US official dismissed the South Korean diplomats' worries about a miscalculation and said a cautious approach by past USA administrations had not stopped North Korea from developing nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles.

BSF jawan martyred in cease fire violation by Pakistan
The exchanges of firing between the Indian soldiers and the Pakistan terrorists continued till Friday morning. The jawan, identified as identified as Captain Brijendra Bahadur Singh, was succumbed to his injuries.

The North and the United States, a close Seoul ally, have in recent weeks exchanged a barrage of military threats, giving rise to global concerns over a possible outbreak of war in the region.

On the other side of the ledger, it needed to address the cessation of the nuclear program and abolition of the existing arsenal, Mr Rudd said. As Pyongyang's nuclear weapons become more powerful and its missiles range farther, the need for harsher measures becomes more acute.

Of course, for political elites in the Abe administration in Japan, they will rightly point out that Saddam Hussein - just like Kim Jong-un of North Korea - never found it hard to build up the armed forces.

Stricter worldwide sanctions will only lead North Korea to speed up its nuclear programme, Pyongyang said on Monday, as U.S. and Chinese leaders agreed to "maximise the pressure" on the regime of Kim Jong Un.

South Korea's defense ministry said today the USA flew four F-35 stealth fighter jets and two B1-B bombers over the Korean peninsula in a military drill on Monday as tension over North Korea's missile tests continued to destabilize the region.

What has North Korea said?

U.S. President Donald Trump, in a speech on Tuesday to the United Nations General Assembly of world leaders, said he would "totally destroy" North Korea if threatened and mocked its leader Kim Jong Un as a "rocket man" for his repeated ballistic missile tests.

South Korean Defense Minister Song Young-moo told lawmakers on Monday that it is "not proper" to reintroduce USA nuclear weapons.

He said it is unclear to USA intelligence whether North Korea has succeeded in miniaturizing a nuclear warhead for an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM), although it claims to have done so.

Officials from the office of South Korean President Moon Jae-in, a liberal who has advocated dialogue with the North while being forced into a hawkish position by the North's weapons tests, called Trump's words a signal of Washington's strong resolve to deal with the North, but also essentially a repetition of the basic stance that all options will be considered when confronting Pyongyang.
