Korea, US, Japan Unite against China's THAAD Retaliation

Irune Rengel | 21 Abril, 2017, 19:19

"We'll be conducting more missile tests on a weekly, monthly and yearly basis", Vice Foreign Minister Han Song Ryol told the BBC on Monday.

Pointing to the quarter-century since the United States first confronted North Korea over its attempts to build nuclear weapons, the vice president said a period of patience had followed.

From two continents, Pence and Defense Secretary Jim Mattis warned that North Korea's latest failed missile launch was a reckless act of provocation and assured allies in Asia that the USA was ready to work to achieve a peaceful denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula. "This represents a general direction that we believe is correct and should be adhered to", Lu said. His national security adviser, H.R. McMaster, said the USA would rely on its allies as well as Chinese leadership to resolve the issues with North Korea.

Mattis credited China with trying to help get the North Korea situation "under control" with the goal of denuclearizing the Korean Peninsula.

North Korea used China-made trucks to display missiles at last Saturday's parade marking the 105th anniversary of founding president Kim Il Sung's birth, underlining the difficulty in enforcing United Nations sanctions against the isolated state.

Iran not pulling weight on 2015 nuclear deal
The comments came after US Defense Secretary James Mattis repeated anti-Iran allegations during a visit to Saudi Arabia. He said that the current administration will not pass "the buck to a future administration on Iran ".

Bermudez offered two possible explanations - that the test site could be going into "a standby mode" or that the games were meant to confuse observers, given North Korea knows that Punggye-ri is under constant observation.

South Korea's Ahn has pointed out that North Korea has continually refused to come to the negotiating table and has instead enshrined its status as a nuclear state in its constitution. "We will take the toughest counteraction against the provocateurs", he said.

In an editorial Tuesday, it pointed out that China and US cooperation is increasing over the North Korean problem, and that the possibility of dragging out the North Korea issue indefinitely has "decreased drastically". Our nuclear weapons protect us from that threat.

Yoon suggested unification on the Korean peninsula would be realized without China's meddling.

On Monday, the paper again called for China to cut off most oil supplies to North Korea if there was another nuclear test.

Observers have been anticipating a sixth North Korean nuclear test for weeks, citing high levels of activity around North Korea's Punggye-ri nuclear test site. You read Clinton's book and he said, 'Oh, we made such a great peace deal, ' and it was a joke.

The North held a show of military might in a parade over the weekend and tested another missile on Sunday, which the Pentagon said blew up nearly immediately after launch.

The US, meanwhile, has conducted missile defense drills with the South Korean and Japanese navies, sent its newest F-35 stealth fighters to train in South Korea, flown B-1 bombers to South Korea, and just Thursday commenced "Max Thunder", billed as the second-largest military flying exercise between US and South Korean forces.

The North regularly launches short-range missiles, but is also developing mid-range and long-range missiles meant to target USA troops in Asia and, eventually, the US mainland.

EU in focus as French presidential candidates face off
But it is important to point out that voter disillusionment is so high in France that as many as a third of people may not vote. Since Sunday, the French people is being urged to show up at the polls in order to choose their future president.
