N Korean soldier stable, but riddled with parasites

North Korea news Donald Trump World War 3

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

North Korea's last missile test was on September 15 but Lee and Yun did not seem to put much emphasis on the lull, Yonhap said, as they were unable to gauge its intentions. The report states that satellite images of the Sinpo South Shipyard taken November 5 show "the presence of what appear to be sections of a submarine's pressure hull in the yards". It said these appeared larger than those for North Korea's Romeo-class attack submarine. A move to develop an operational ballistic missile submarine wouldn't be unexpected, CNBC reports.

North Korea's rapid progress in developing nuclear weapons and missiles has fueled a surge in regional tension and United Nations -led sanctions appear to have failed to bite deeply enough to change its behavior. DPRK stands for the North's official name, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea. Building a vehicle that can protect warheads from the heat and stress of a return flight - or re-entry capability - is critical for developing functional intermediate-range and intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs). This came a week after Beijing played host to Mr Trump, who has called on Beijing to use its leverage as North Korea's top economic backer to pressure Mr Kim into giving up his quest for a nuclear weapon.

The U.S. has long dismissed the proposal, saying North Korea must unilaterally cease its program before negotiations can begin.

Worldwide sanctions, droughts, and disastrous internal management mean food shortages are a big problem in North Korea.




North Korea could not consider abandoning its nuclear programme, he said, adding: "This is the deterrent, the nuclear deterrent to cope with the nuclear threat from America".

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".

North Korea has conducted dozens of missile tests this year, and its largest and biggest nuclear test was on Sept 3.

In an interview with Reuters, Han Tae Song, North Korea's ambassador to the United Nations in Geneva, brushed off the new sanctions which the Trump administration says it's preparing, as well as the possibility of North Korea being added to a U.S. list of states sponsoring terrorism.

"As long as there is continuous hostile policy against my country by the United States and as long as there are continued war games at our doorstep, then there will not be negotiations", the ambassador said.
