Why North Korea has no interest in talking to the South

Taking it a step further, Japan's Defense Minister Itsunori Onodera told parliament a missile attack on the USA territory would be a Japanese national emergency because it would threaten Japan's existence as a nation. And if his missiles prove no match for USA interceptors, Kim Jong Un might be chastened into thinking twice before conducting any more.

"That U.S. can stop North Korea from all of this". "They have said that America will be defended".

After Trump's "fire and fury" threat heightened tension, average daily sales volume has been 250 bars, ranging in weight between 10 grams (0.35 oz) and 100 grams (3.5 oz), versus about 50 earlier, Song said, adding the trend would continue through August. China is the North's biggest economic partner and source of aid, but says it alone can't compel Pyongyang to end its nuclear and missile programs.

The North also said its Hwasong-12 missiles would fly over southern Japan en route toward Guam, which would be the first time a North Korean missile flew over the country.

"In 1994, when the USA government reviewed a plan to bomb North Korea's nuclear site at Yongbyon, the situation was much more serious than now".

He told CNN that while there was some fear, people were used to living with North Korean posturing.

Guam is a relatively isolated island known for little more than its USA military port.

"The military action the KPA is about to take will be an effective remedy for restraining the frantic moves of the U.S. in the southern part of the Korean peninsula and its vicinity".

North Korea's latest missile test was its 13 (and tenth successful one) since US President Donald Trump assumed office in January.

North Korea has also threatened that it would carry out a nuclear strike "at the heart of the United States" if the USA attempted a regime change in Pyongyang, after recent hints to that end by CIA Director Mike Pompeo. "There's even a THAAD system in South Korea now". Trump said. He did not specify what they might be.

At a park in central Pyongyang Friday evening, young people practiced volleyball and grandparents and parents watched children on climbing frames and swings.

"If there was to be conflict in this region, understand that there is an archipelago, 600 miles long called the Marianas that encompasses two USA territories - Guam and the Commonwealth of the Northern Marianas", he said. She said, "I don't see a military solution and I don't think it's called for".

On Sunday, the United Nations Security Council adopted tough sanctions drafted by the United States that could deprive the North of as much as one-third of its export revenue. "It is very concerning that there are divisions inside the Trump administration in policy towards North Korea".

If carried out, it would be Pyongyang's most provocative missile launch to date while it would nearly certainly spark a response from Donald Trump.

It is unclear whether - or exactly why - North Korea would risk firing missiles so close to USA territory.

"It is absolutely essential to find ways to bring North Korea to the negotiating table and engage them in talks and remove the cloud of nuclear war that is hanging over the world".

"Both assured me that the people of Guam are safe", Calvo wrote on Facebook.

That puts its total population of 170,000 in range of the Hwasong-12 intermediate-range ballistic missiles that Kim Jong Un's regime has threatened to fire as a counter-punch to President Donald Trump's caution that the USA would respond with "fire and fury" to provocative actions by North Korea.

They cite lingering questions about North Korean leader Kim Jong Un's nuclear know-how.
