A US envoy said North Korea's recent weapon tests were "concerning and counterproductive." Last week, the isolated nation carried out tests of a new type of ballistic missile launched from submarines.
The North's recent tests were in line with Kim Jong Un's earlier vows to introduce sophisticated weapons and enlarge his nuclear arsenal to defend itself against U.S. hostility
North Korea ledaer Kim Jong Un's statement is an apparent effort to drive a wedge between Seoul and Washington as he wants South Korea to help him win relief from crippling U.S.-led economic sanctions.
The North's latest test, which followed two previous rounds of missile tests this month, indicated the country is returning to its tried-and-true technique of mixing weapons demonstrations and peace offers to wrest concessions.
North Korea also referenced the "backstabbing" remarks of US ally, France. Says that there would be corresponding actions if "even the smallest negative affect on our country's safety" is observed.
After seeing it's economy ravage under the pandemic, North Korea is back at its missile endeavours after a year. State media reported these long-range cruise missiles as "strategic weapon of great significance”.
Sung Kim's visit to Seoul comes amid declining expectations for a quick resumption of talks and new tensions over ongoing U.S.-South Korean military exercises.
China fought alongside North Korea against South Korea and US-led UN forces during the Korean War, which ended with an armistice, not a peace treaty.
The National Intelligence Service told lawmakers in a closed-door briefing that it hasn't detected any information that North Korea has acquired vaccines, according to Ha Tae-keung, one of the legislators who attended the session.
Kim Jong Un summoned the ruling Workers' Party's Central Committee to discuss efforts to salvage a dismal economy
Kim's health matters in Seoul, Washington and other world capitals because he hasn't publicly anointed a successor who would control an advancing nuclear program targeting the US and its allies — if he is incapacitated.
Kim could use the upcoming Central Committee meeting to address the stalled nuclear diplomacy, said experts
North Korea has ignored offers from the new Biden administration to resume negotiations between the two countries.
According to KCNA and China's Xinhua news agency, Xi in his own message to Kim described bilateral relations as a 'valuable asset' to both countries and vowed to make unspecified contributions to the peace and stability on the Korean Peninsula.
In his speech on the third day of the meeting Thursday, Kim 'declared the general orientation and the policy stand of our party for comprehensively expanding and developing the external relations'
Kim's speech likely contained 'sensitive contents' that can provoke the United States and South Korea, a researcher said
While few question Kim's grip on power, there is still room for things to get worse, especially if the world fails to find a quick way out of the Covid-19 crisis.
The weapons included the North's biggest-yet ICBM, which was mounted on an 11-axel launch vehicle that was also seen for the first time, and a presumptive new solid-fuel weapon designed to be fired from submarines.
