Paws for peace - North Korea's Kim sends two dogs across DMZ

Paws for peace - North Korea's Kim sends two dogs across DMZ

Praising the progress he said they've made toward halting the rogue regime's nuclear program, Mr. Trump said he has averted what would have been a certain war with North Korea.

"Without any trust in the USA, there will be no confidence in our national security, and under such circumstances, there is no way we will unilaterally disarm ourselves first", the minister said.

Ri's comments at the UN General Assembly were toned down from a year ago, when North Korea and the United States exchanged sharp words that had the world anxious the two sides could go to war.

North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho addressed the United Nations and said his country would never disarm its nuclear weapons first if it can't trust Washington.

"Without any trust in the U.S. there will be no confidence in our national security and under such circumstances there is no way we will unilaterally disarm ourselves first", Ri said.

While Ri reprised familiar North Korean complaints about Washington's resistance to a "phased" approach to denuclearisation under which North Korea would be rewarded as it took gradual steps, his statement appeared significant in that it did not reject unilateral denuclearisation out of hand as Pyongyang has done in the past. "But the problem is that the continued sanctions are deepening our mistrust", Ri said.

President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un met at a landmark summit in June, which saw Mr Kim pledge to work towards nuclear disarmament.

Once the Singapore agreements are implemented, the "current trend toward detente will turn into durable peace and the complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula will also be achieved", Ri said.

Flights, Trains Canceled as Typhoon Hits Japan
Many flights and trains services were cancelled as the storm moved eastward. "From around 2pm, we saw incredible winds and rain". A pedestrian wearing a rain cover walks on a street after Typhoon Trami hits the city of Kagoshima, on Kyushu island, on Sunday.

Ri said it was a "pipe dream" that continued sanctions and USA objection to a declaration to formally end the Korean war would ever bring the North to its knees.

The Trump administration is preparing for a second summit with Kim to talk about denuclearization.

China and Russian Federation argued that the UN Security Council should reward Pyongyang for steps taken.

Pompeo will make his fourth trip to the North Korean capital next month.

"Past diplomatic attempts to halt North Korea's nuclear and ballistic missile development were unsuccessful", Pompeo said.

But his comments were infused with what came across as impatience at the slow pace of progress in a process the world hopes will cause Pyongyang to abandon an arsenal of nuclear-tipped missiles that aims to accurately target the entire USA mainland.

The canine gifts come after a September meeting between Moon and North Korea leader Kim Jong Un in Pyongyang, at which Kim agreed plans to shutter a missile-testing site and visit Seoul.

It added that the United States is only intent on keeping sanctions in place without holding up its end of the bargain amid a mood of detente on the Korean Peninsula.
