Russian tankers have supplied fuel to North Korea on at least three occasions in recent months by transferring cargoes at sea, according to two senior Western European security sources, providing an economic lifeline to the secretive Communist state.

North Korea`s right to produce and launch satellites : a Seoul newspaper report


 

North Korea is preparing to launch a satellite, a Seoul newspaper said Tuesday, as outside observers warn that the nuclear-armed regime`s space programme is a fig leaf for weapons tests.

Pyongyang is under multiple UN sanctions over its nuclear and missile tests and is prohibited from carrying out any launch using ballistic missile technology including satellites.

"Through various channels, we`ve recently learned that the North has completed a new satellite and named it Kwangmyongsong-5", the Joongang Ilbo daily reported, quoting a South Korean government source.

North Korea made progress on missile but getting paranoid

North Korea has certainly made progress in its missile development programme but it is also getting paranoid due to the increasing global isolation, US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley said on Sunday.

US President Donald Trump last month declared North Korea a state sponsor of terrorism, a move that allows the Trump administration to impose additional sanctions on Pyongyang over its nuclear and missile programmes.

U.S. B-1B Lancer bombers will fly over the Korean peninsula on Wednesday as part of a large-scale joint aerial drill being staged with South Korea this week, the South's Yonhap news agency reported, citing an unidentified military source.

The bombers will take part in the drills at a time of heightened tensions on the Korean peninsula and as United Nations political affairs chief Jeffrey Feltman makes a rare visit to North Korea.

The North has warned the drills would push the Korean peninsula to "the brink of nuclear war".

North Korea said it successfully tested a powerful new intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) on Wednesday that put the entire U.S. mainland within range of its nuclear weapons.

North Korea’s first missile test since mid-September came a week after U.S. President Donald Trump put North Korea back on a U.S. list of countries it says support terrorism, allowing it to impose more sanctions.

US experts think North Korea could launch missile within days

US government experts think North Korea could conduct a new missile test within days, in what would be its first launch since it fired a missile over Japan in mid-September, two authoritative US government sources said on Tuesday.

One of the US sources, who did not want to be identified, said the United States had evidence that Japanese reports about the monitoring of signals suggesting North Korea was preparing a new missile test were accurate.

Both sources said US government experts believed a new test could occur "within days."

Trump talks Syria, North Korea with French president


Emmanuel Macron

President Trump spoke Monday with President Emmanuel Macron of France about dealing with war-torn Syria and the nuclear threat from North Korea, the White House said.

Mr. Trump and Mr. Macron agreed on the importance of the United Nations-based Geneva Process as the only legitimate forum for achieving a political solution in Syria, the White House said in a statement.

The more than six-year civil war in Syria, in which President Bashar Assad has ruthlessly crushed opponents of the regime, devastated the country and created the biggest refugee crisis since World War II.
