Trump bank ban statement 'not consistent' with facts, says China

President Donald Trump gestures while speaking following his meeting with Secretary of State Rex Tillerson left and U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley at Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster N.J. Friday Aug. 11 2017

I hear more and more South Koreans calling for South Korea to go nuclear now and a similar movement could begin in Japan. We have more on the Korean Arms race from Neal Conan in today's Pacific News Minute. The larger one had a 3.4 magnitude, the group's initial assessment found, which is much smaller than anything declared as a nuclear test in previous years.

During an interview with Japan's Asahi Shimbun newspaper published Saturday, Lee said if the emperor visits Korea for a breakthrough in bilateral issues that have yet to be sorted out, it would greatly contribute to the two countries' relations. However, the Yonhap News Agency reported that while one of the South Korean missiles accurately struck its target in the ocean, the other broke up shortly after liftoff and crashed into the sea.

"The worldwide community is strengthening sanctions and pressure against North Korea and even Moon is in the United States to strengthen global coordination against the North Korean problem", said Son. "China and Russian Federation to have them also engaged with Pyongyang on this issue". That involved a midrange Dongfeng-2 missile being launched from a deep inland rocket facility to the Lop Nur nuclear test site in the country's far west.

North Korea said its recent nuclear test was a detonation of a thermonuclear weapon built for its developmental intercontinental ballistic missiles.

Satellite photos of the area after the September 3 quake showed numerous landslides apparently caused by the massive blast, which North Korea said was a hydrogen bomb.

Trump also praised China for what he called an instruction to its banks to cut off business with North Korea. In August, Trump warned of "fire and fury" for Pyongyang after the ICBM tests.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson says North Korea's Kim Jong Un is "being tested" by the strongest sanctions ever put in place by the US and the worldwide community.

"If the sanctions don't have the anticipated effect, it could be because North Korea has a. parallel universe of banks and firms that simply are immune" to the executive order, Haggard wrote. "Would we really start a war over such an act?"

North Korea has described the September 3 incident as a test of an advanced hydrogen bomb for a long-range missile, marking a dramatic escalation of the regime's stand-off with the United States and its allies. The locations are around 50 kilometers away (more than 30 miles) from the site of previous nuclear tests, the group said. In two July flight tests, those missiles showed potential capability to reach deep into the US mainland when perfected.

"If China truly desires to denuclearize the Korean peninsula to promote stability and to avoid conflict in that sensitive region right on its own border, now's the time to work with the rest of us ... to put the kind of pressure on North Korea that can change its strategic calculations before it's too late", he added. It's created to reduce North Korea's access to foreign currency. Additionally, North Korea is so used to living under hard economic circumstances that it has found ways to be less affected by sanctions, learning how to get around sanctions - e.g., through smuggling - instead.

Still, the past months have taught him not to underestimate what the North could do.
