China's military practises for surprise attack over sea near Korea

Lesser-Known Trump Associates in Russia Probe's Crosshairs

Serious negotiations seem like a pipedream. This number is sure to rise in the coming days as the media falls all over itself to report about the "aggressive, unpredictable" nature of the regime, and political leaders add their voices to the call for war.

Moon has asked the United Nations to consider tough new sanctions on North Korea after the latest nuclear test. He said on Wednesday it was inevitable oil supplies to the North would be cut and asked Putin to cooperate. Its defense minister said it was worth reviewing the redeployment of American tactical nuclear weapons to the Korean Peninsula to guard against the North, a step that analysts warn would sharply increase the risk of an accidental conflict.

The yen was trading at 114 yen to the dollar in early July.

The ministry is said to have made the request in response to the harsher security environment surrounding the country, in light of North Korea's repeated launches of ballistic missiles and China's maritime military advancements.

"We cannot resolve this situation without diplomatic tools, without talks. We are not looking to the total annihilation of a country, namely North Korea, but as I said we have many options to do so".

The USA, Britain, France, Japan and South Korea requested the urgent meeting after North Korea detonated what it described as a hydrogen bomb designed for a long-range missile.

"As expected, the test has generated verbal condemnation from the international community, including China and Russia". Unification Minister Cho Myoung-gyon told lawmakers on Tuesday that North Koreans living near the site may have been exposed, his spokesman said.

In Toronto's Koreatown neighbourhood, residents there say they are worried about the family members they have in the capital, Seoul, and other parts of South Korea.

US lawmakers and America's biggest business lobby urged Trump not to scrap a free trade agreement with longstanding ally South Korea, especially at a time of heightened tensions.

North Korea has constantly called Trump's bluff, undermining his diplomatic capital by openly defying the US president's threats and taunts. "I would not be surprised at some point in the next two years that get exposed to a demonstration that it can be delivered".

Nam claimed Kim's uncontrollable temper has to do with the North's recent provocations, warning that hostile acts will continue unless Kim is removed from his seat.

"Kim Jong-un is a very dangerous man", he said. But this might achieve little beyond pushing Kim Jong-un's cloistered regime to look for support from its other neighbour, Russia.

North Korea got some help from somewhere to develop such a terrible weapon.

This picture taken released by North Korea's official Korean Central News Agency shows the successful test-fire of the intercontinental ballistic missile Hwasong-14.

Launched in 2012, the forum is modeled after the Asia Security Summit, better known as the Shanggri-La Dialogue, held in Singapore each year.

The relationship between Beijing and Pyongyang was forged in the blood of the Korean War, when Mao Zedong sent millions of 'volunteers' to fight US-led United Nations forces to a standstill. During the 1960 presidential campaign, John Kennedy cited "indications" that by 1964 there would be "10, 15 or 20" nuclear powers.

Putin, who derided increased sanctions as "useless and ineffective" a day earlier, said that he welcomed the opportunity to discuss North Korea with Moon.
