WRAPUP 5-Pence reassures Japan of US resolve on North Korea

Massive missiles landed on a US city, yielding an ear-splitting blast as flames engulfed America.

The performance Tuesday was presented by State Merited Chorus. The report said it "demonstrates a limited capability to defend the USA homeland from small numbers of simple intermediate-range or intercontinental ballistic missile threats launched from North Korea or Iran".

The horrific footage displayed missiles shooting over the Pacific and exploding in a giant ball of fire in the U.S. It ends with a burning U.S. Stars and Stripes flag that is superimposed over rows of white crosses in a cemetery, according to Reuters.

The disturbing musical debuted an entire song about missile launches, the South Korean newswire Yonhap reported.

"It flies as quickly as a flash of lightning to challenge imperialism."

"I've seen that the United States has reiterated it is willing to use political and diplomatic means to resolve this, as this is their first choice", he told reporters in Beijing.

The propaganda video was released as tensions continued to rise between Kim Jong-un's isolated country and the United States.

Zhongnanhai sells the trucks to a dealer in the border city of Dandong before they are resold to North Korea, he said.

President Donald Trump says that how much North Korea's leader desires peace will be a deciding factor in easing tensions between it and the United States.

North Korea's KCNA news agency on Monday carried a letter from leader Kim Jong Un to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad marking the 70th anniversary of Syria's independence.

"We will not rest and will not relent until we obtain the objective of a denuclearized Korean Peninsula."

That has driven North Korea to issue its own threats and begin preparations for "even a 1 percent chance that the US will launch pre-emptive strikes", Lim said.

"We appreciate the challenging time in which the people of Japan live with increasing provocation across the Sea of Japan". Sign up to our Telegram channel and we'll keep you up to speed!

In an editorial Tuesday, it pointed out that China and USA cooperation is increasing over the North Korean problem, and that the possibility of dragging out the North Korea issue indefinitely has "decreased drastically".

"It is our belief by bringing together the family of nations with the diplomatic and economic pressure we have a chance of achieving a freeze on the Korean Peninsula."

That window is the closeness in time between a South Korean election and a provocative act by North Korea, meaning a nuclear or missile test. But the vice president expressed impatience with the unwillingness of North Korea to move toward ridding itself of nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles. He did not comment on what might have caused the missile to fail.

"It was even farther away over the weekend, moving through the Sunda Strait and then into the Indian Ocean, as North Korea displayed what appeared to be new missiles at a parade and staged a failed missile test", Phil Stewart of Reuters noted Wednesday. And a day later it conducted a failed missile test, which drew global condemnation.

Britain's "international development" budget, which now stands at around £13.34 billion, is growing increasingly controversial, with money falling into the hands of rogue states like North Korea, wealthy countries with space agencies and their own foreign aid programmes, and even Islamist terror organisations.
