N/Korea threatens US with 'greatest pain' after UN sanctions

South Korean President Moon Jae-in has dismissed the possibility of deploying nuclear weapons in his country, warning it could "lead to a nuclear arms race in northeast Asia".

After the latest round of UN sanctions, North Korea launches a tirade against its enemies, vowing to "sink" Japan with nuclear weapons and "reduce the United States to ashes".

"Such activity, coming shortly after the largest underground nuclear test conducted at Punggye-ri to date [via the North Portal], suggests that on-site work could now be changing focus to further prepare those other portals for future underground nuclear testing", the defense analysts, Frank Pabian, Joseph Bermudez Jr. and Jack Liu, said in a report on 38 North, a website focused on North Korea.

"We now have more tools in our toolbox, and we will continue to use them and put additional sanctions on North Korea until they stop this behavior". John McCain said should be "seriously considered".

As North Korea holds more frequent and more powerful tests, the South in particular has ramped up its deterrence efforts.

Last year, she took a well-publicized break from her career to focus on her mental and physical health. It's incredibly tough and incredibly fearless dealing with any chronic illness.

Despite continued nuclear provocations from Pyongyang, the South Korean government is planning to extend humanitarian assistance to the North.

The interview was made ahead of his visit to NY next week to attend the UN General Assembly.

"We think it's just another very small step, not a big deal", US President Donald Trump told reporters.

Moon was undeterred Thursday, saying there was no need to interpret Trump's tweet "in a narrow way".

"It was hard to find out how powerful the nuclear test was with the amount of xenon detected, but we can say the xenon was from North Korea", Choi Jongbae, executive commissioner, told a news conference in Seoul.

Battling Overwatch toxicity is slowing the game's development down
Kaplan suggested players take a look at their own behavior and work together with the community to cut down on toxicity in-game. Players do not get any satisfaction out of reporting others because they never know if they actually helped out or not.

He also recalled the U.S. Treasury's sanctioning of a Chinese bank for the time. Here we take a look back at the United Nations sanctions since 2006. The Trump administration therefore plans to act on its own to restrict the flow of crude oil to North Korea from China, the North's main source of oil.

October 2006: North Korea conducts its first nuclear test, immediately prompting a United Nations resolution banning various products to the country and freezing the assets and travel of individuals involved in the nuclear programme.

State media also claimed the nuclear "deterrent" would help "ensure peace on the Korean Peninsula and the security in the region, and no one can take issue with it".

South Korea has carried out a live-fire drill for an air-launched "stealth" missile it says will offer a hard-hitting response against its rogue northern neighbour if it comes to war.

This week, analysts at 38 North, a monitoring service, said satellite images of North Korea's nuclear testing site showed the effects of the quake caused by the most recent test, as well as preparations for "future underground nuclear testing".

European Union should enforce rules to prevent vetoes on tax reforms - Juncker
In a statement, the lender said that the securities services it offers European Union clients are now provided through a subsidiary in the UK.

In an angry backlash, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe slammed the launch as an "unprecedented, serious and grave threat" and called for a UN Security Council meeting, urging for "increased pressure on North Korea in cooperation with the worldwide community".
