Tremor detected near North Korea weapon test site

Trump dubbed Kim "Rocket Man" in a speech at the United Nations last week in which he threatened to "totally destroy" the North if it attacked the USA or its allies.

If North Korea attempts an atmospheric nuclear test at sea, it would likely involve its most powerful ballistic missiles, such as the intermediate-range Hwasong-12 or the intercontinental-range Hwasong-14, experts say.

China's Big Four state-owned banks have stopped providing financial services to new North Korean clients, Reuters reported last week, with some measures beginning as early as the end of a year ago.

"When Mr. Trump threatens to annihilate 25 million people in North Korea, he is endangering 51 million South Koreans", said Jeong-ae Ahn-Kim, representative of Women Making Peace in South Korea.

That's where the new powers Trump gave Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin come in.

"This event occurred in the area of the previous North Korean Nuclear tests".

The dollar buckled against the yen on Friday as tensions simmered on the Korean peninsula, though the sharp divergence between USA and Japanese monetary policy kept the greenback on track for a winning week against the yen. But one possible - perhaps final - approach that has not yet been explored is a Trump-Kim summit at which the two leaders might make a "big deal" - that is, to get North Korea to denuclearize in exchange for a normalization of their relationship, i.e., a peace treaty, between North Korea and the U.S. But this would be an extremely hard thing to pull off, both politically and diplomatically. We are inviting all interested countries to pool efforts and to do their best to reach our common goal as soon as possibl,"Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said.

His threats in no way represent the interests of his own country, much less of the U.N".

Those measures did not go far enough for Trump.

"The DPRK has grown accustomed to the hostile sanctions regime for decades".

Banks that may have previously looked the other way now have a strong incentive to pay close attention or risk severe punishment. The market in North Korea is rife with corruption.

Commenting on their assessment of the quake, the South Korean official said "several methods" had been used to work out whether the incident was natural or manmade. The U.S. government and its military are well aware that any military action would be very risky.

"Whatever changes may take place, no matter how long it will take, and whatever difficulties we may face, China will stay firmly committed to the denuclearization of the peninsula", said Wang. Beijing, which has strongly opposed sanctions against its companies, could retaliate against US interests. "Unless the DPRK believes that the benefits from trade with the global community are greater than the current security benefits of prioritizing its military-first economy, North Korea will have little incentive to change its policy". "But...there are things that can be done before getting there".
