North Korea Refuses to Negotiate

N.Korea's Key 'Rocket Men' Absent from Major Events

North Korea again threatened on Friday October 13th 2017 with firing missiles near the American island of Guam at Washington's military deployment in the region, the same day that the USA and Seoul announced new naval maneuvers in waters off the Korean peninsula. In the last three months, North Korea conducted its most powerful nuclear test ever and launched two missiles over northern Japan. But Trump has added to tensions in recent weeks by employing similarly tough talk, threatening to "totally destroy" or rain down "fire and fury" on North Korea.

"We have already warned several times that we will take counteractions for self-defense, including a salvo of missiles into waters near the USA territory of Guam", the KCNA report quoted Kim Kwang Hak, a researcher at the Institute for American Studies of the North Korean Foreign Ministry, as saying.

Anyone anxious that the United States-North Korea impasse is heading to a nuclear showdown should relax.

President Trump recently stated that his attitude on North Korea is "the one that matters" after being questioned about the conflict between his hardline view on North Korea and Secretary of States Rex Tillerson's more diplomatic solution.


"We can not allow this to happen".

Despite earlier comments, Trump also said Friday that he's "open" to negotiation.

"If eventually other countries.become nuclear powers, there'll be a real impetus for a lot of countries to develop or buy nuclear weapons", Trump's chief of staff John Kelly told reporters at the White House.

The previous test compelled Washington to accelerate its global campaign to exert sanctions and pressure on North Korea. He said the North Korean threat is "manageable" for now. Several thousand North Korean workers have been working in Middle East construction sites, earning badly needed cash for their government.
