China tells Japan not to abandon dialogue over North Korea

Daily NZDUSD

A 3.0 magnitude quake was detected near North Korea's nuclear test site on Saturday, South Korea's weather agency said.

The administration said in a statement on its website that the quake, which occurred around 4.29pm, was recorded a depth of zero kilometers.

The quake was detected in an area around Kilju, in northeastern North Korea, just 6 kilometers northwest of where the North conducted its sixth and most powerful nuclear test on September 3, according to an official from Seoul's Korea Meteorological Administration. The quake was centred near North Korea's nuclear test site.

And it's possible that North Korea is able to undermine them.

The exercises were meant to underscore "the seriousness with which we take DPRK's reckless behavior", White said, using an acronym for North Korea.

Likewise, China's Earthquake Networks Center said an analysis by the seismic service found that the quake "is a natural one", Xinhua, China's official news agency, reported. Trump has said he won't allow it, although the U.S.so far has not used military force to impede the North's progress. 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.

Where are the world's nuclear weapons?

Wang, whose country has faced repeated U.S. calls to take a tougher line, said in his address that North Korea should "not go further along a risky direction".


Pyongyang conducted its sixth and most powerful nuclear test on September 3, claiming it had tested a hydrogen bomb that could be loaded into an intercontinental ballistic missile.

Kim vowed to take the "highest-level" action in response to US President Donald Trump's threat at the United Nations to "totally destroy" the North over its nuclear and missile programmes. Trump tweeted Friday that Kim was "obviously a madman" who would be "tested like never before".

North Korea's state media issued a statement Saturday from the National Peace Committee of Korea describing Trump as "wicked" and "a rabid dog".

"But we're not in this alone", he added. "Negotiation is the only way out and deserves every effort", Wang told the UN General Assembly.

North Korea has been working on developing missiles that can reach the United States and its allies and pair them with a miniaturized nuclear warheads.

Wang told Japan Foreign Minister Taro Kono on the sidelines of a United Nations meeting in NY that the situation on the Korean peninsula was getting increasingly serious and all sides needed to remain calm.

Prohibition of the imports of North Korean textiles should be carried out immediately from the date of announcement, and for the volume of transactions that have been concluded prior to the passage of the United Nations resolution, the import procedure must be completed by December 10, the ministry said.

That resolution imposed a ban on condensates and natural gas liquids, a cap of 2 million barrels a year on refined petroleum products and a cap on crude oil exports to North Korea at current levels.
