Donald Trump may be planning to visit the demilitarised zone (DMZ) separating North and South Korea, it has been claimed.

President Donald Trump on Monday tweeted that policies under previous USA administrations have failed to contain the North Korean nuclear threat.

According to local reports, the hackers also accessed information about US-South Korea military drills and data on South Korean power plants and military installations.

The poll was conducted about a week after Trump intensified rhetorical exchanges with his counterpart Kim Jong Un, dubbing him "Rocket Man" and threatening in a September 19 speech at the U.N.to "totally destroy" North Korea if the U.S.is forced to defend itself and its allies. The two are in South Korea for talks with top officials on Friday.

His predecessor, Barack Obama, visited Observation Post Ouellette in 2012, peering into North Korea through bulletproof glass and a pair of binoculars.

In recent weeks, North Korea has launched two missiles over Japan and conducted its sixth nuclear test, all in defiance of U.N. Security Council resolutions, and may be fast advancing toward its goal of developing a nuclear-tipped missile capable of hitting the US mainland. "It was preposterous." South Korea's Unification Ministry has said safety guarantees for South Koreans are among the changes needed before it will consider restarting the tours.


A U-2S high-altitude reconnaissance aircraft has been deployed by the U.S. Air Force to monitor potential military movements by the North.

Commenting on a Trump statement that the United States might withdraw from a nuclear deal with Iran, Peskov said such a move would have "negative consequences".

On Monday he tweeted: "Our country has been unsuccessfully dealing with North Korea for 25 years, giving billions of dollars and getting nothing".

China, North Korea's main ally and trading partner, has consistently argued sanctions alone will not work, urging Washington and Pyongyang to lower their rhetoric and return to the negotiating table. "This positive process is worth a try", the paper said in an editorial late on Tuesday.

The exercises came as a US nuclear-powered fast-attack submarine, the USS Tuscon, made a call in South Korea's southern port of Jinhae, the US Pacific Command said.
