Nkorea willing to resume nuke talks with US

North Korea fires unidentified projectiles toward East Sea

With its recent weapons tests, North Korea has demonstrated it can "master key components of ballistic missile systems, including solid-rocket fuel production... and the capacity to penetrate ballistic missile defence systems", the United Nations report said, citing an opinion of a member state.

Catherine Dill, a senior research associate at the Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey, Calif., said it would help to replace Bolton with the current USA envoy to North Korea Stephen Biegun. Kim Jong Un can spin this personnel change in Washington as a win in North Korean domestic politics.

North Korea has never responded well to Bolton, with Pyonyang officials dubbing him a "warmonger" and "human defect" that "deserves an earlier vanishing".

Kim, who has suspended testing of nuclear weapons and intercontinental ballistic missiles while engaged in talks with the USA, has given Trump until the end of the year to ease up on sanctions choking his state's anemic economy.

Pompeo too was met with hostility and branded a "diehard toxin" by a DPRK government representative after he called for Kim to stop missile testing.

"These have been the president's policies".

Talks on North Korea's nuclear disarmament fell apart in February when Trump rejected North Korean leader Kim Jong Un's demand for sweeping sanctions relief in return for partial disarmament at their second summit in Vietnam.

Stop vaping — CDC Warning
The Australian National Drug Strategy Household Survey reported that 6.4 per cent of young smokers aged 18-24 used e-cigarettes. Public health officials confirmed Tuesday that two people in Idaho have developed a serious lung disease linked to vaping .

All that almost fell apart in Hanoi when Trump followed Bolton's advice and handed Kim a piece of paper that bluntly called for the transfer of Pyongyang's nuclear weapons and bomb fuel to the United States.

Trump was asked whether he would consider easing sanctions on Iran to secure a meeting with its leader President Hassan Rouhani at this month's UN General Assembly and replied, "We'll see what happens".

However, the projectile launch soon after Choe's statement is being interpreted as one more attempt by North Korea to gain leverage and build pressure on starting the dialogue.

"The North Korean statement hints at further testing, including possibly a so-called "ripple" fire test, where they look to rapidly fire all of the four missiles this system can carry in one salvo", said Mr Panda, who covers nuclear and conventional force developments in Asia.

Some experts said North Korea aims to wrest concessions from the United States once their diplomacy resumes.

Trump declined to comment on whether he would meet with Maduro.
