NKorean and Chinese media in war of words over weapons

NKorean and Chinese media in war of words over weapons

The Korean Central News Agency carried a story on Wednesday that was highly critical of "reckless remarks" made recently by China regarding North Korea's nuclear program.

"China's position on developing friendly, good-neighborly relations with North Korea is also consistent and clear", Geng told reporters, in response to a question about the KCNA commentary. "North Korea has already clearly stated that it's not interested in a dialogue with the U.S. So they're not necessarily detaining this man for the sake of a dialogue", he said.

DPRK refers to North Korea's official name, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.

US officials told Reuters the usa military's THAAD anti-missile defence system had reached initial operational capacity in South Korea, although it would not be fully operational for some months.China has repeatedly expressed its opposition to the system, whose powerful radar it says can reach inside Chinese territory, even as Trump has praised Chinese President Xi Jinping for his efforts to rein in North Korea.Trump has stepped up outreach to other Asian countries to secure their cooperation to pressure North Korea. Every male in the country is required to undertake some form of military training and can be called to serve at any time.

The 2016 Global Firepower Index revealed the North had, as part of a far-reaching arsenal, 70 submarines, 4,200 tanks, 458 fighter jets, 572 fixed-wing attack aircraft among others.

Meanwhile, U.S. President Donald Trump said in an interview with Bloomberg News on Monday that he would "absolutely" be willing and "honored" to meet with the North's leader Kim if such a meeting takes place "under the right circumstances".

Like all North Koreans, he wore a badge on his lapel bearing the portrait of late North Korean leader Kim Il-Sung.

Kim Jong Un's secretive and paranoid regime can't really even get along with its giant northern neighbor much of the time anyway.

Despite pressure from the worldwide community, Pyongyang has made no secret of its nuclear ambitions.

North Korea said Tuesday military exercises in the region by the USA and its allies amounts to "reckless military provocation" that is "pushing the situation on the Korean peninsula closer to the brink of nuclear war".

Traditionally, the United States and China have negotiated new sanctions before involving remaining council members.

Tensions on the Korean Peninsula have significantly spiked in recent weeks.

North Korea's response was a metaphorical middle finger.

China has sought a dual-track approach toward North Korea's problems, saying that peace treaty talks between the North and the USA should be proceeded in tandem with negotiations on denuclearization.

Russian Federation is also the source of foreign exchange for North Korea, mostly from Vladivostok.

Tillerson on Friday urged the Security Council to act before North Korea does.

The Ministry of Unification said that the North made a "rare" direct condemnation of China, given that previously Pyongyang used the term "a neighboring country" when criticizing Beijing.
