US House Minority Leader Expresses Concern N. Korea Could Sell Weapons

USA officials have also warned that China could face US trade and economic pressure - something Trump has held in abeyance since taking office in January - unless it does more to restrain its neighbor. His popularity continues to sink and at worldwide fora.

"It's like asking the Catholics to stop believing in Jesus Christ."

Schilling estimated that North Korea could have around 20 nuclear warheads that could be used on such a missile, "but there is substantial uncertainty on that", he said.

The speed at which the North Korean leader is proceeding with the testing of missiles coupled with his threats of launching a nuclear-tipped missile is a matter of concern for America.

Kerry Brown, associate fellow at Chatham House's Asia program, agreed.

"A Republic of Korea Ministry of Defence White paper, traces the initiative for North Korean biological weapons development back to the 1980s".

"With its latest successful test of an intercontinental ballistic missile, North Korea has demonstrated intent and capability to hit the USA homeland - and as President Trump said, we must never allow this to happen", said Gardner who chairs the Senate East Asia, the Pacific, and International Cybersecurity Subcommittee.

"In its present form, it couldn't reach much farther than Alaska or maybe Hawaii", Schilling said, "but we think it can be fairly easily extended to cover the West Coast of the United States".

According to Pew Research, Filipinos are among the most concerned about North Korea's nuclear program, with 60 percent saying they were "very concerned" while another 27 percent of the respondents indicating they were "somewhat concerned". But the worldwide community cannot just watch the rising hostility between Trump and Kim from afar, because the opposing camps could take any action against universal norms.

Nor should China be exempt from accompanying stiff trade restrictions.

It also bitterly opposes South Korea's deployment of a sophisticated USA missile defense system that Beijing says jeopardizes Chinese security because of an ability to monitor missile launches and other military activities within northeastern China.

China's exports to North Korea rose 29.1% in the first half of the year, with total trade with Pyongyang growing 10.5% to $2.55 billion.

This week, North Korean state television claimed that they would "turn the U.S. into a pile of ash" if Trump used military force to contain their nuclear program, the latest in a series of similar threats against Washington and Seoul. "Biological weapon use in the latter context is particularly worrisome".

"The current situation is terrible - the only thing worse is all the other options".

Though Trump took a more conciliatory tone on the North Korea issue and China's role at a meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping on Saturday, Beijing has begun taking a harder rhetorical line with Washington in the past few days.

The North Koreans who are put to work in Russian Federation are paid approximately 50,000 rubles a month, which is equivalent to $841.

Stability on the peninsula remains its primary interest. They, however, did not outline how they will go about the plan, especially with the non-cooperation of China.

The decline follows China's decision in February to ban all imports of North Korean coal.
