North Korea may have more bomb fuel than thought: U.S. think tank

North Korea may have more bomb fuel than thought: U.S. think tank

"If the UN Security Council adopts another sanction resolution, we will take subsequent steps and respond with fair measures", the statement said, as quoted by the state-owned Korean Central News Agency (KCNA).

It, among other things, would impose United States sanctions on all those participating in North Korean labour trafficking abuses.

North Korea's multiple missile tests in recent months, culminating with its first-ever successful launch last week of an intercontinental ballistic missile capable of reaching Alaska, has alarmed the worldwide community and presented Trump's first major foreign policy test. He has been urging the UN Security Council to impose a "complete economic embargo" requiring all member nations to cut off all finance and trade with the North, with a few limited humanitarian exceptions.

But in recent weeks, Trump has fired off tweets denouncing China's trade with North Korea and cast doubt on whether Beijing was doing enough to counter Pyongyang. Mr Trump also said China's trade with North Korea had grown almost 40 per cent in the first quarter.

The successful launch of a North Korean ICBM "has fully demonstrated the will and capability of the DPRK (Democratic People's Republic of Korea) to annihilate the U.S.in a single blow to the very heart of its mainland in case it fails to act with discretion", the report warned.

Egypt army kills 40 militants after check point attack
The attacks were mainly centered in Sinai Peninsula, but some extended to the capital and Delta cities. Witnesses said they saw Apache helicopters carrying out airstrikes across Rafah after the attack.

The timing and scope of the USA action will depend heavily on how China responds to pressure for tougher steps against North Korea when United States and Chinese officials meet for a high-level economic dialog in Washington on Wednesday, the administration sources told Reuters.

The radars are to be installed with military and marine units in the northwestern islands of South Korea, facing the North Korea border. It took 56 days to adopt UNSC Resolution 2270, regarded as the strongest non-military sanctions in the history of the United Nations, in response to the fourth nuclear test. But Huang said the total trade figure in the first six months was US$2.55 billion, an increase of 10.5 percent.

The UN sanctions allow trade in items considered "exclusively for livelihood purposes".

Huang said coal imports dropped by three-quarters in the first half, and all those shipments had been made before February 18.

Professor Park Jong Cheol of Gyeongsang National University told Daily NK that, "China agreed to every UNSC resolution adopted after North Korea's fourth and fifth nuclear tests". While North Korea claimed that it could strike anywhere in the world, most experts initially assessed the range to be somewhere around 4,000 miles, which would put Alaska within firing range.
