Satellite images 'suggest North Korea aggressive work on ballistic missile submarine'

Satellite images 'suggest North Korea aggressive work on ballistic missile submarine'

North Korea responded by launching another ballistic missile over Japan on September 15.

In August, North Korea fired ballistic missiles that flew over Japan and landed in the Pacific waters off the northern region of Hokkaido.

"I wouldn't speculate on what North Korea's activities are or aren't", White told reporters at the Pentagon Thursday.

It said the Nov 5 images showed two large circular objects that could be sections of a submarine's pressure hull. It denies North Korea's persistent accusation that it is planning to invade.

US Defence Secretary Jim Mattis says there could be an opportunity for talks between North Korea and the United States if Pyongyang stopped testing and developing its nuclear and missile programs. DPRK stands for the North's official name, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.

In July, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un declared he could strike the entire continental U.S. after test-firing the regime's second ICBM within a month - a claim disputed by American officials.

Trump, who had previously called negotiations with North Korea a waste of time, has offered no clear path to talks.

There are concerns in South Korea that any potential USA strikes against North Korea's nuclear and missile programs could provoke devastating North Korean retaliation against South Korea.

"China is sending an envoy and delegation to North Korea - A big move, we'll see what happens!"

Yonhap, citing unidentified diplomats in Beijing, said there was a good chance that Mr Song would meet Mr Kim tomorrow.

Lee Min-bok, a North Korean agriculture expert, said: "Chemical fertiliser was supplied by the state until the 1970s, but from the early 1980s, production started to decrease".

"President Xi recognizes that a nuclear North Korea is a grave threat to China, and we agreed that we would not accept a so-called "freeze-for-freeze" agreement like those that have consistently failed in the past", Trump said during a briefing on Wednesday.

Today, North Korea's Ambassador to the UN Han Tae-song met with Reuters in Geneva and claimed that his country won't negotiate with the USA as long as it continues military cooperation with South Korea.

"The DPRK, my country, will continue to build up its self-defence capability, the pivot of which is nuclear forces and capability for a triumphant. strike, as long as U.S. and hostile forces keep up (the) nuclear threat and blackmail", he said.
