US aims for UN vote on North Korea sanctions
Ri Jong Ho used to work in the high levels of the North Korean government helping the country bring in foreign income until gruesome executions made him want to leave Kim Jong Un's regime.
He is expected to express Pyongyang's opposition to a new set of sanctions under discussion at the U.N. Security Council to punish its launches of intercontinental ballistic missiles.
"Significant additional long-range sensors and batteries for missile defense in South Korea and Japan could also increase pressure on China to take more concrete actions against its proxy troublemaker".
"The South China Sea and the Korean peninsula will be major theatres of contest among the major powers, with Asean stuck in the middle", said Thitinan Pongsudhirak, an international relations scholar at Bangkok-based Chulalongkorn University.
What has not been determined is how heavy a payload the missile was carrying in its most recent test which occurred last Friday. We do not seek the collapse of the regime. North Korea has repeatedly said it will never give up its nuclear arsenal, which it sees as a guarantee of its security. He added that sanctions should include conditions for their removal and not be used to overthrow "unwanted regimes".
"We are not your enemy, we are not your threat, but you are presenting an unacceptable threat to us and we have to respond". But the thing that is most dangerous about it is the character who holds the control over them today. One veto from those permanent Council members would kill the resolution. A South Korean investigator showed CNN weapons like a ballpoint pen that shoots poisonous bullets and a flashlight fashioned into a gun that would-be North Korean assassins were caught with.
Tillerson will keep hammering that message in his smaller ASEAN meetings, too.
GERMANY-VIETNAM The German government accused Vietnamese intelligence services yesterday of involvement in what it called the kidnapping in Berlin of a former Vietnamese oil executive, and gave the country's intelligence attache 48 hours to leave Germany. The biggest complaint from the US is its persistent trade deficit against China. "They're not showing signs that they are committed to doing that at this point".
In a harrowing warning, Tillerson also suggested that "a long period of no conflict" with China could come to an end if relations continued to go sour.
Ties have grown frostier between Beijing and Pyongyang, which has openly criticized China for siding with the U.S. on sanctions. China accounts for some 30 percent of North Korean coal exports. Green was the top Asia official on George W. Bush's National Security Council.
"He is playing with dangerous toys and this crazy man, do not be fooled by his face, that chubby face that looks nice", Duterte told an audience at an anniversary celebration for the nation's Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR).
North Korea said that it has no intent to block Americans hoping to visit it.
Despite Moscow's reservations or Washington's rhetoric, French Ambassador to the UN Francois Delattre spoke to reporters after a Security Council meeting in New York on Thursday, echoing Ambassador Liu's comments by saying that there is "some progress towards resolution", adding, "the sooner the better". Both systems have proven highly effective in trial runs. But that's a somewhat less risky option.
However, experts doubt the capability of the missiles to hit their targets.
