South Korea: Sanctions, Dialogue to Denuclearize North Korea

The United States, which has 28,500 troops in South Korea to guard against the North Korean threat, has called on China to do more to rein in its ally and neighbor. As per the experts, the technology involved in the latest ballistic missile featured a significant improvement, particularly from the perspective of the rocket's altitude and its flying time. We would make North Korea an unlivable radioactive wasteland.

On Monday, North Korea's regime issued a statement claiming that its new rocket could deliver a "large heavy nuclear warhead" all the way to the USA mainland.

South Korea's Defense Minister said on Tuesday that a missile fired on Sunday by the North suggests that Pyongyang's aim of producing a projectile that can carry a nuclear warhead as far as the U.S.is more advanced than previously thought.

The Security Council adopted two sanctions resolutions previous year to ramp up pressure on Pyongyang and deny leader Kim Jong-Un the hard currency needed to fund his military programs.

South Korea's Han said Sunday's test was "successful in flight". A U.S. State Department spokesman said the United States remains open to talks with North Korea but the country would have to "cease all its illegal activities and aggressive behavior in the region".

They scrutinize shipping traffic to parse whether the flow of oil and coal between North Korea and China might be diminishing, with potentially disastrous results for Kim Jong Un's regime.

Haley said that U.S. and China have been working on "a unified plan" on how to approach North Korea that would include stronger implementation of existing sanctions and tougher new sanctions.

A member of Hong's delegation, who requested anonymity, also quoted Tillerson as saying that the U.S. meant it when it said it seeks no regime change, no invasion of the North and it will guarantee the North's system.

When asked what the USA would do if it was confirmed that North Korea had been behind the major ransomware attack plaguing computer systems across the globe, Haley said: "Sadly, it wouldn't be a surprise".

"Until the United States and its followers make the right choice, we will further produce sophisticated and diversified nuclear weapons and striking means and push to prepare for necessary tests", Yonhap cites North Korean diplomat Pak Jong-hak as saying.
