U.S. and China report progress on new North Korea sanctions

Posted July 27, 2017

The U.S., Japan, China and South Korea have been trying to figure out how to deal with North Korea's actions.

Economic ties between Russia and North Korea, which share a narrow land border, are similarly beleaguered, with trade down for a third year to just $77 million in 2016, according to the Russian customs service.

The news agency south Korean Yonhap reported on Tuesday that Seoul had detected what appeared to be preparations for a missile strike north korea.

North Korea has accelerated its ballistic missile program this year.

July 27 is known as Victory Day in North Korea, marking the end of the Korean War, and there are concerns leader Kim Jong-un could use the anniversary to carry out another missile test.

North Korean soldiers today looked on as South Korean and United Nations officials took part in a ceremony to mark the 64th anniversary of the armistice at Panmunjom.

As the conversation turned to North Korea, Dunford told Mitchell that the USA will tolerate North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un's threats for only so long.

The U.S.is pressing Russian Federation to end a program for taking 30,000 to 50,000 North Korean migrant workers, in order to "deprive Kim Jong Un of all his money", Toloraya said.

"There is no question that the North Korea has moved further and faster with its effort to develop a reliable, nuclear-capable ICBM that can be built in quantity, but there are still doubts about whether it can cross that threshold in a year".

"DIA and the South Koreans tend to be at the leading edge of estimates on North Korea's military programs, and that's understandable", said one of the U.S. officials, who both agreed to speak only on the condition of anonymity. "Things are moving but it's still too early to tell how far they'll move", Haley said on Tuesday.

"The apparent success of the July Fourth test is an alarming development as North Korea accelerates its pursuit of being able to hold the United States at risk with nuclear weapons", Committee Chairman Rep. Mac Thornberry, R-Texas, said after the classified briefing, "I have grown increasingly alarmed that North Korea is acting with a greater sense of urgency than we are". Kim's regime may earn $30-$50 million a year from the migrant workers, who labor in remote Russian forest camps or on construction sites, he said.

North Korea and China were discussed "in depth" at a meeting of the two nations' foreign and defence ministers in Sydney on Thursday.

"We're not afraid of Trump", said Bogdanov. "And our poorly-painted little ship is also a path of peace".
