North Korea condemns U.N. Sanctions

North Korea condemns U.N. Sanctions

Although the two countries are allies, they are divided over the issue of whether South Korea has to pay for the Terminal High Altitude Area Defence (Thaad) anti-missile system deployed in the south of the country.

DONALD Trump would have "maybe 10 minutes" to decide whether to launch a retaliatory strike against North Korea - should it ever fire a missile that's capable of reaching the U.S. mainland, experts say.

Haley also criticised Moscow, after Russian President Vladimir Putin responded to North Korea's latest missile launch by saying that while his country opposed Pyongyang's nuclear programme, it was unacceptable for countries to intimidate North Korea.

US Ambassador Nikki Haley has accused North Korea of intimidating the entire worldwide community with its nuclear programme, military ability and cyberattacks, and said any country that doesn't implement United Nations sanctions is supporting Pyongyang's actions.

U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley said the United States was working with China, Pyongyang's main ally, on a new sanctions resolution and warned that all countries must step up action against North Korea or face measures themselves.

You see, Kim Jong Un's latest missile proved that North Korea now has the capacity to annihilate its USA -allied neighbors.

While FireEye researcher John Miller, too, said U.S. and European security officials maintain it was too early to say who is behind the attack, they did not rule out North Korea as a suspect.

"Absolutely, sanctions [are] something that we are looking at and we are going to continue to see where that takes us". An IRBM has a range up to 3,000 to 4,000 kilometers (1,860 to 2,485 miles).

Asked whether North Korea's missile program was developing faster than expected, he said, "Yes".

Trump seeks to move past controversies as he lands in Riyadh
The package includes tanks, combat ships, missile defense systems, radar and communications and cybersecurity technology. President Donald Trump is stepping off Air Force One in Saudi Arabia to begin his first global trip since taking office.

Pyongyang, three days earlier, celebrated test of the "perfect weapon system" after the nation launched what it claimed as a new kind of intermediate-range ballistic missile system which can carry "a large-size heavy nuclear warhead".

This is also North Korea's first provocation since Moon Jae-in was elected president of South Korea on May 9.

President Moon Jae-in shakes hands with Matthew Pottinger, senior director for East Asia at the White House's National Security Council at the Blue House in Seoul, May 16.

"If you are supporting North Korea, you are against the rest of the worldwide community", Haley said.

While North Korean missile tests are largely driven by their own development schedule, there is no missing the signals sent by the timing of this launch.

Since the U.S. -China summit meeting, President Trump has heaped praise on Chinese president Xi Jinping for his perceived assistance on North Korea.

Beijing has maintained its hard line, and in an editorial Thursday, the Communist Party newspaper Global Times said China's opposition "cannot be traded for the new government's friendly posture toward China". While these remarks seem to emphasize sanctions, they also indicate a willingness to open the door to dialogue.

But the tubby tyrant's latest test on Sunday was declared a success by the North Korean government.

The U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom has released its 2017 annual report which says freedom of religion is nonexistent and is suppressed through imprisonment, torture, arrests, and execution in the reclusive state.
