S. Korea: North's rocket test shows 'meaningful progress'

21 March 2017

"I do not deny that there are more North Koreans involved in the murder of Kim Jong-nam".

North Korea has been shy about its missile development goals.

"The change of name came in early 2012 after the first company closed down and they resumed business again in mid-2012", he said. U.S. President Donald Trump tweeted before the talks in Beijing that North Korea has been "behaving very badly" and seemed to blame China for sitting idly by.

North Korea's nuclear facility at Yongbyon is well known, but striking it could cause an environmental disaster.

The 30-something leader, who took power in 2011 after his father died of a heart attack, said in his New Year's address that his country was in the "final stages" of preparations for testing an intercontinental ballistic missile.

Bellator bolsters roster again with addition of light heavyweight Ryan Bader
MMAjunkie has confirmed with Bellator president Scott Coker that the UFC veteran is set to accept a multi-fight contract today. Silva was supposed to fight Mirko Cro Cop in the Rizin 2016 Openweight Grand Prix, but pulled out of the fight due to injury.

Euan Graham, director of worldwide security at Australia's Lowy Institute, said the North Korea's twin civilian and military rocket programs may have "become so sophisticated they're moving on separate tracks". This is no time to try and score political points off national security.

The KCNA statement mentioned only civil, rather than military, purposes for the new engines, saying it would "help consolidate the scientific and technological foundation to match the world-level satellite delivery capability in the field of outer space development". There is a major effort underway to keep track of North Korean mobile launchers.

Seoul's sharp evaluation comes a day after Pyongyang announced that it carried out the new ground test of a new high-thrust rocket engine.

However, it might be hard to track down those mobile systems.

While the new engine could potentially be used for an ICBM, North Korean reports concerning the recent rocket engine test refer only to civilian, not military uses.

Japan, which was Tillerson's first stop before traveling to South Korea and China, hosts tens of thousands of USA troops.

Albright cautioned that a pre-emptive strike carries the risk of "a conventional war involving North and South Korea with large numbers of casualties". Another concern is that the vast majority of North Korea's million-man army is just north of the demilitarized zone (DMZ) that separates it from South Korea.

A growing threat from the North has prompted Seoul and Washington to begin installing a powerful United States missile defence system in the South - angering Beijing, which views it as a threat to China's own missile capabilities. It remained unclear what would trigger a military response, however.

"After investigations, the recipient in Thailand was found not to exist", he said in a video recording of the conference seen by Reuters.
