State Dept: North Korea Has Committed to Denuclearization

North Korea Might Be Working On New ICBMs

Vice President Mike Pence met with the top USA commander in Asia before participating in a ceremony marking the arrival of remains believed to be of servicemen from the Korean War.

Former DPAA official Jeong Yang-seung, who previously worked on identifying U.S. remains from the North, said it was unusual to locate dog tags during the search and recovery process.

Of the roughly 7,700 missing US service members from the Korean War, approximately 5,300 are believed to be on North Korean soil.

The claim that North Korean society is prosperous also belies warnings in state propaganda published as recently as last week that the nation might soon face even more poverty than it is used to.

Additionally, new satellite imagery from the Sohae Satellite Launching Station on North Korea´s west coast suggests workers are dismantling an engine test stand, in line with a promise made to Trump.

North Korea has carried out a total of six nuclear tests, the most recent of which took place in September past year. In return, Trump canceled large US military exercises with South Korea and promised Kim unspecified security assurances.

Iran MPs summon Rouhani as USA pressure squeezes economy
In May the United States left the deal which curbed Iran's nuclear activities in return for the lifting of worldwide sanctions . Rouhani recently warned the USA that "war with Iran is the mother of all wars ", prompting an all-caps retort from Trump.

The Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency, which keeps a record of missing American soldiers, announced Elmore's identification on July 3.

During the meeting, Maharani invited a joint North and South Korean team to take part in the Asian Games, as part of efforts to improve relations between the countries and strengthen reconciliation progress on the Korean Peninsula.

"We see them going to work, just as before", said one USA official, who, like the others, spoke on the condition of anonymity in discussing sensitive intelligence. That's according to a report by The Washington Post, which cited officials who spoke on condition of anonymity in order to describe classified intelligence.

Reports had indicated that North Korea was upgrading its only official nuclear enrichment site, and was stepping up enrichment at other secret sites.

A United States official noted to Reuters that this recent activity suggests North Korea may be looking to improve their missiles.

Fact or Fiction: Is Trump Right to Claim Collusion Isn't a Crime?
Instead of clarity, he parroted back the increasingly common refrain of "collusion is not illegal! ". Mr Trump's tweet comes after his lawyer Rudy Giuliani told Fox News " collusion is not a crime ".

The returned remains are seen as one major accomplishment of Trump's historic summit in Singapore with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un last month.

About 7,700 US soldiers are listed as missing from the 1950-53 Korean War, and 5,300 of the remains are believed to still be in North Korea.

They will encourage the USA and Pyongyang "to continue working towards the realisation of lasting peace and stability on a denuclearised Korean Peninsula", according to a draft copy of the chairman's statement obtained by AFP.

The Rodong Sinmun, North Korea's official party newspaper, accused Seoul of "wasting time" waiting for sanctions to be lifted only after denuclearization is completed, without "taking a single action" on its own.

The Sanumdong factory built the first North Korean intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) capable of reaching the United States.

The remains of American soldiers handed over last week by North Korea are on their way to Hawaii now to be identified through DNA testing.

Over $109bn wiped off Facebook's market cap after growth shock
A #DeleteFacebook campaign didn't have any "material impact" on the bottom line, COO Sheryl Sandberg said earlier this year. Although it did its best to downplay the stormy financial forecast, Facebook's investors don't seem to be distracted.

"It's my duty to provide assurance for all countries in the world, Asia, including North Korea, that the safety in Indonesia is stable". The Trump administration, as part of the Singapore agreement, is pursuing discussions with North Korea on resuming those "field activities".
