Despite friendly rhetoric, Trump and Xi still far apart on North Korea

12 Juillet, 2017, 13:50 | Author: Claudine Rigal

North Korea's successful test launch of an ICBM was a milestone in its long-term effort to build a missile that could carry a nuclear warhead to attack the United States. Yi revealed the National Intelligence Service's conclusions after meeting with agency officials.

The Reuters report noted that Trump campaigned for the presidency on a position of cracking down on China for its trade practices, but has softened his tone after taking office, instead placing emphasis on working with China on the issue of North Korea's nuclear weapons development. On this basis, analysts are predicting a tense battle as the UN Security Council works on a new resolution for sanctions against North Korea, with the USA seeking to include bans and restrictions on exports of crude oil and the hiring of North Korean workers and China opposing them.

Moreover, the missile has a detachable "payload shroud" that can house multiple payloads or a single warhead and a number of decoys and penetration aids created to defeat USA missile defenses, the expert said.

China in part blames the US and South Korea for heightened tensions on the peninsula, citing frequent military exercises and a recently deployed anti-missile system.

Other countries have gone back and retrieved their re-entry vehicles after launch to examine them, but North Korea doesn't have the logistical capability to do that, Zhao said. We're going to push hard not just on North Korea, we're going to push hard on other countries who are not abiding by the resolutions and not abiding by the sanctions against North Korea.

A press release posted by Headquarters Pacific Air Forces Public Affairs on July 7 stated that, in response to the North Korean missile test, two U.S. Air Force B-1B Lancer bombers from Andersen Air Force Base, Guam had on that day conducted a 10-hour sequenced bilateral mission with South Korean and Japanese fighter jets.

On Tuesday, its Hwasong-14 missile became the first in North Korean history capable of traveling more than 3,400 miles, the minimum distance needed to be classified as an intercontinental ballistic missile.

Acquiring a nuclear-capable ballistic missile that can hit the U.S. is a top priority for North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. "They continue to seek to import commercial dual-use technologies for their weapons programs, but the design and innovation is homegrown".

The expert said that even though the missile has a "payload shroud", the North won't be able to master the technology to put multiple warheads in it for the next 15 years.

Moon expressed gratitude for France playing an active role in the North Korean nuclear issue.
