Japan to extend unilateral sanctions against North Korea

Japan to extend unilateral sanctions against North Korea”

The US on Wednesday said that it is considering all options to tackle the threat posed by North Korea's repeated nuclear arms tests, hours after Pyongyang fired another ballistic missile into the Sea of Japan.

The U.S. military's Pacific Command said initial assessments indicated the launch was of a KN-15 medium-range ballistic missile, which would be the same kind North Korea test-launched in February.

The South Korean military said the missile was sacked from land near the east coast city of Sinpo and flew about 60 kilometers (40 miles). He told reporters in Tokyo on Wednesday that "Japan can not tolerate North Korea's repeated provocative actions".

Do the Donald Trump Korea policy statements over the last week or so - along with statements by Secretary of State Tillerson and others in the government and military - indicate the United States might be planning a preemptive military strike against Kim Jong-un and North Korea?

On Tuesday night, North Korea launched a KN-15 missile from its eastern coast into the Sea of Japan, marking the fourth missile test conducted by the North Korean regime this year alone.

China to establish new economic zone near Beijing
The new economic zone will ultimately encompass an area over 400 square miles greater than New York City. It is part of the government's ambitious plan to develop the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region.

North Korea on Match 6 also fired four short-range ballistic missiles believed to have been an improved version of Scud missiles, with a range of around 500 km, or 310 miles.

On Sunday, Trump held out the possibility of using trade as a lever to secure Chinese cooperation, while suggesting Washington might deal with Pyongyang's nuclear and missile programs on its own if need be.

Trump said ahead of the meeting that China has great influence over North Korea and he wants Xi to help the US denuclearize the reclusive northeast Asian nation.

The launch came amid worries that North Korea might soon conduct banned nuclear or long-range rocket tests.

North Korea's missile test comes just a day before Chinese President Xi Jinping visits US President Donald Trump for a summit in Florida, and as the US, Japan and South Korea wrap up a round of trilateral naval military drills off the Korean Peninsula.

Chang Yong-Seok, a researcher at the Seoul National University's Institute for Peace and Unification Studies, said the missile test was Pyongyang's way of warning China and the US.

LaMalfa said: "North Korea's blatant violations of UN Security Council resolutions present a clear danger to the United States and its allies".

In June previous year, the South successfully test-fired two home-developed missiles capable of carrying a one-tonne payload up to 500 kilometres.

China has supported the six sanctions resolution but Haley said it needs to fully implement the sanctions — as do other United Nations member states. "China summit", said Yhusuke Yamada, a senior strategist at Bank of America Merrill Lynch in Tokyo.
