North Korea, Syria and Ukraine

  • Donald Trump North Korea

"We aim to encourage people to avoid problematic transactions with North Korea (through these sanctions) and to exercise caution with North Korea-related transactions in general", said Unification Ministry spokesman Baek Tae-hyun in a regular media briefing.

"I think they are a great people, they are hardworking, they are kind and warm, more hearty than the world knows and understands", he said.

Trump will visit Japan, South Korea, China, Vietnam and the Philippines between November 5 and November 14.

'Every once in a while, in the past, they underestimated us. "We want Putin's help on North Korea, and we'll be meeting with a lot of different leaders", Trump told reporters on Air Force One before landing at the Yokota Air Base in Japan, Efe reported.

"We remain postured to respond in the event of a provocation or conflict, and we have taken all appropriate measures to protect our allies, the Republic of Korea (ROK) and Japan, and U.S. Forces in those countries", the letter reads.

President Donald Trump ramped up his tough rhetoric against North Korea when he arrived in Japan on Sunday, saying that the United States and its allies are prepared to defend freedom and that "no dictator" should underestimate USA resolve.

The last time the two men met, at Trump's Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida, North Korea launched a missile over Japan.

Trump's marathon trip comes with the North Korea crisis at fever pitch, as USA bombers fly sorties over the Korean peninsula and fears mount of another Pyongyang missile test.


'We want to get it solved.

A United States ground invasion of North Korea could cost "millions" of lives, a new military report has predicted amid growing tensions between the U.S. and the hermit nation.

President Donald Trump says he expects to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin during his trip to Asia, as questions over ties between his campaign and the Russian government continue to intensify.

A report by the Congressional Research Service released last month estimates that as many as 25 million people on either side of the border, including more than 100,000 USA citizens, could be affected by an escalation of a military conflict on the Korean Peninsula.

'There is only one way that this war ends.

While repeatedly calling for dialogue to resolve the issue, China has also signed up for increasingly tough United Nations sanctions against North Korea.

The Center for Nonproliferation Studies estimates North Korea has between 2,500 and 5,000 metric tons of chemical weapons, including a large supply of VX, the deadliest nerve agent ever created.

China's fuel exports to North Korea fell in August, along with iron ore imports from the isolated nation, as trade slowed after the latest UN sanctions, but coal shipments resumed after a five-month hiatus.
