North Korea warns it won't negotiate nukes if U.S. is 'hostile'

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson GettySecretary of State Rex Tillerson said Americans should have “no concerns

The spokeswoman went onto emphasize that the Trump administration has been clear that it will "not accept a nuclearized North Korea".

North Korea has risen to the top of the global agenda this year as Kim carried out repeated missile tests. To further provoke the United States and dare the UN, which came up with some of its toughest sanctions so far against the impoverished country, a defiant Kim said he would conclude plans by mid August to launch four mid-range ballistic missiles over Japan to drop within 18 to 24 miles of Guam, "to signal a crucial warning to the U.S.".

Moon's comments follow a spike in animosity generated by North Korea's warning that it might send missiles into waters near the US territory of Guam, and Trump's warlike language.

But US officials have taken a gentler tone in recent days.

Gov. Ray Tenorio said officials of the USA territory were happy that the reherotic from Kim Jong-un had calmed down in recent days.

"We've got 95 percent occupancy and after all this stuff calms down, we're going to have 110 percent occupancy", Calvo said.

Since May 2017, USA aircraft have been undertaking reconnaissance missions over the North Korean region with planes routinely flying at a height of 70,000 km (North Korea has no capability to detect them).

"And I said why are they so important?"

The number of South Korean travelers in particular has been growing lately because five low-priced airlines started flying to Guam from South Korea, said Antonio Muna, the vice president of Guam Visitors Bureau.

"We're at economic war with China", Bannon said.


Sanctions on North Korea have been ratcheted up over the past two weeks, with U.S.

Pyongyang's deputy U.N. ambassador told United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres this week that its nuclear weapons program will never be up for negotiation as long as the USA government's "hostile policy and nuclear threat continue".

He claims that United States military options are "locked and loaded" and the North Korean ruler, Kim Jong-un, would "truly regret" any attack on Guam or other USA or allied territory.

A new study by a London-based think tank and an article in the New York Times that cited it said North Korea had obtained rocket engines probably from a Ukrainian factory via illicit networks.

But virtually everyone in both parties and the calm voices in the White House have called President Trump's threat about "fire and fury" impromptu or, more bluntly, misguided.

On Wednesday, the chairman of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff, Marine Corps Gen. Joseph Dunford, continued a visit to China following talks the day before with his Chinese counterpart that touched on North Korea. As former Bush administration official Robert Joseph argues, such a strategy would involve cutting off the North from the worldwide financial system, interdicting its weapons trafficking and perhaps shooting down its test missiles or instituting a blockade.

"We will look for the United States to reaffirm its defense commitment, including the nuclear deterrent".

North Korea's nuclear weapons programme will never be up for negotiation as long as the US government's "hostile policy and nuclear threat continue", Pyongyang's deputy UN ambassador told UN secretary-general Antonio Guterres. Also, the possibility of a united Korea would allow the presence of USA forces on China's borders.

Kim Dong-yub, a professor and military expert at Kyungnam University's Institute of Far Eastern Studies in Seoul, urged caution in assuming North Korea was bluffing with its missile threats.

The lack of concessions from the USA indicates it's up to North Korea to back down at some point and offer more favourable terms for a compromise. Military images and fiery anti-US messages are common in North Korean propaganda. "The great leaders I've seen don't threaten unless they're ready to act and I'm not sure President Trump is ready to act", he warned.
