Report Accuses North Korea Of Fueling Syria's Chemical Weapons Program

Report Accuses North Korea Of Fueling Syria's Chemical Weapons Program”

The US has "egged the UNSC Sanctions Committee on" to claim a link between North Korea and Syria, the official said, adding that the allegation is created to build additional support for Washington's proposal for a "full-scale sea blockade" of the North and a "military invasion into Syria".

Administration officials have emphasized that the goal is to continue using sanctions and diplomatic pressure to push any decision on whether to engage in military action against North Korea as far as possible into the future.

South Korea's special envoy to North Korea will likely be a ministerial-level official and is expected to visit the North immediately before or during the Pyeongchang Paralympics that run from March 9 to 18, according to sources.

The statements come after the USA announced on February 23 that it was imposing its largest package of sanctions on Pyongyang, in an effort to pressure it to give up its nuclear and ballistic missile programs.

President Donald Trump also warned of a "phase two" that could be "very, very unfortunate for the world" if the steps did not work.

They allegedly made false statements regarding income, debt, use of property, and false profit and loss statements. The lawsuit was settled in August 2016 and the one-page filing in a NY court did not provide details of the terms.

Should inter-Korean talks progress without a clear promise by Pyongyang to halt its nuclear development, a rift could emerge in the trilateral cooperation among Japan, the United States and South Korea as well as holes in the global net encircling North Korea. Multiple officials cautioned that a diplomatic solution now remains the administration's focus - and that there are ways to block North Korea's missile program short of all-out war.

Pyongyang is willing to prepare for dialogue in which the two sides "discuss and resolve issues of mutual concern on an equal footing", a Foreign Ministry spokesperson was quoted as saying by the Korean Central News Agency.

The US submitted the request a week ago, a move it said is "aimed at shutting down North Korea's illicit maritime smuggling activities to obtain oil and sell coal".

"Whether peace desired by our nation and the rest of the world settles on the Korean Peninsula or a situation that no one desires is developed in the vicious cycle of confrontation depends entirely on the attitude of the USA", the spokesman said, according to KCNA.
