  • Japanese PM Cannot Tolerate Missile Launch

North Korea has threatened to sink Japan and reduce the U.S. to "ashes and darkness" for leading the latest UN Security Council sanctions imposed on the country.

"The four islands of the archipelago should be sunken into the sea by the nuclear bomb of Juche". His visit comes amid speculation over a growing rift between Seoul and Washington, after US President Donald Trump accused Moon of seeking "appeasement" with North Korea.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson held talks in London with senior British and French officials on North Korea's nuclear and missile programs.

However few expect these measures to be vigorously enforced as the Kim Jong Un government has become adept over the years in evading sanctions, and North Korea's trading partners, especially China and Russian Federation, have been complicit in permitting illicit transactions to continue despite official support for sanctions.

In its first official reaction to the sanctions resolution adopted Tuesday by the U.N. Security Council, North Korea's Foreign Ministry said Wednesday that the sanctions would only strengthen the country's resolve to pursue its nuclear weapons program "at a faster pace without the slightest diversion". But the detected xenon-133 is a radioactive isotope that does not occur naturally and which has been linked to North Korea's nuclear tests in the past.

The EU expanded its North Korea sanctions list today, as the global community builds pressure on Pyongyang over its nuclear weapon and ballistic missile programmes.

Threat to turn United States to "ashes" and sink Japan "into the sea" with nuclear bomb follows adoption of latest United Nations sanctions.

In response, the committee said the USA should be "beaten to death like a rabid dog" for the "heinous sanctions resolution".

The Korea Times reports that South Korea successfully conducted its first live-fire drill for an advanced air-launched cruise missile on September 12. The administration of President Donald Trump has indicated it will consider secondary sanctions if the United Nations sanctions are not fully implemented.

Following the Kim Jong-un regime's latest round of nuclear brinkmanship, calls are growing for a return to South Korea of American tactical nuclear weapons.

Writing for 38 North, the Johns Hopkins University website dedicated to North Korea issues, analysts Frank V. Pabian, Joseph S. Bermudez Jr. and Jack Liu say North Korea's site now has "additional slippage" in "pre-existing landslide scars" and a "possible subsidence crater". Five days later, it carried out a sixth nuclear test, sending tensions soaring over its weapons ambitions and causing global concern.
