North Korea on 'Aggressive Schedule' for New War Machine

China on Thursday reiterated its call for an agreement between North Korea and the US under which the North would gain concessions if it freezes its nuclear weapons program, apparently contradicting remarks a day earlier by President Donald Trump. It said these appeared larger than those for North Korea's Romeo-class attack submarine.

The US wants a diplomatic solution to North Korean crisis, but says missile tests must end. 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".

Images of a test stand indicated continued testing of a mechanism for ejection launch of missiles from a submarine. A move to develop an operational ballistic missile submarine wouldn't be unexpected, CNBC reports.

Last week, United States President Donald Trump and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe urged other nations to "unite to ramp up pressure against North Korea to the maximum level".

"Noting that these developments seriously threaten peace and stability in the entire region and beyond, we strongly urged the DPRK (North Korea) to fully and immediately comply with its obligations arising from all the relevant UN Security Council Resolutions", it read.

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.

In defending his decision Wednesday, McDermott said his goals were higher than simply making the playoffs this season. TE Charles Clay had a disappointing return after a four-week absence as he caught only two passes for 13 yards.

"I've never seen anything like this in my 20 years as a physician", South Korean doctor Lee Cook-Jong said, explaining the longest worm removed from the patient's intestines was 27 cm long.

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

The Asean statement said the growing tension between the United States and North Korea should be resolved through a "peaceful" approach, thus, appealed that the two nations exercise "self-restraint" and start non-adversarial dialogue.

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". Between January and September this year, China exported almost 49,000 tonnes of corn to North Korea, compared to only 3,125 tonnes in all of 2016, according to data released by Beijing. It has not tested a missile since firing one over Japan on Sept 15.

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

"As long as there is continuous hostile policy against my country by the U.S. and as long as there are continued war games at our doorstep, then there will not be negotiations", North Korea's Han said.
