North Korea has no fear of USA sanctions move: Envoy

North Korea has no fear of USA sanctions move: Envoy

Not content with threatening to fire nuclear missiles at the USA earlier this month, North Korea just released a really alarming video showing troops blowing up a US aircraft carrier.

"I think this is stemming from the visit by the Secretary of State (Rex Tillerson) to Japan, South Korea and China.We of course are not afraid of any act like that", Choe told Reuters. "We are exploring a new range of diplomatic, security and economic measures".

The UN's atomic watchdog chief said North Korea's uranium enrichment facility has doubled in size over the last few years.

"Obviously if North Korea takes actions that threatens the South Korean forces or our own forces, then that would be met with an appropriate response".

Tillerson outlined a tougher strategy to confront North Korea's nuclear threat after visiting the world's most heavily armed border near the tense buffer zone between rivals North and South Korea.

According to Thae, Kim is urging adversaries to halt their annual joint military drills and lift sanctions on North Korea in return for a suspension of its nuclear and missile programs.

Ambassador Hill says the United States, China and other nations should be actively working together to apply additional pressure on North Korea.

The recent "open beta weekend" of Ghost Recon Wildlands drew much attention and participation from the gamer community. This may seem like a lot and it certainly is but this is the standard size for an open world game.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson will skip what would have been his first meeting with North Atlantic Treaty Organisation early next month.

This would be a mistake as China had shown no inclination to do the same for United States core interests, such as its alliances in Asia, The Washington Post quoted Ms Bonnie Glaser of the Centre for Strategic and International Studies, a U.S. think-tank, as saying.

North Korea and its leader, Kim Jong-Un, have used the its rhetorical punching bag for quite some time, using American ties with South Korea and its military as justification for Pyongyang's continued hostile military stance and pursuit of a nuclear weapons program. "It's important that the president and the secretary of state not engage in what sounds like saber-rattling".

It's yet unclear whether or not the Trump administration is willing to compromise and make concessions to freeze North Korea's nuclear program.

Trump confirmed that he held meetings on the hermit state and the tubby tyrant was acting "very, very badly". First, it is clear that the Trump administration is not receptive to the core of the Chinese proposal for an interim freeze proposal as a way to get the diplomatic ball rolling.

"We know that, we don't agree 100 per cent of the time with China, but as the State Department noted yesterday, both President Xi (Jinping) and Secretary Tillerson agreed that there are opportunities for greater cooperation between China and the U.S., and acknowledged that there are and will be in the future differences between the two countries", he said. South Korean players will have a match with their North Korean counterparts on April 7.

The South Korean embassy told its nationals residing in China, or travelling there for the game, to take extra caution and avoid inflaming passions.
