North Korea calls United States terror listing a 'serious provocation'

24 November, 2017, 01:21 | Author: Chad Mckenzie
  • AN UNHAPPY MAN — North Korean leader Kim Jong Un visits the Sungri Motor Complex in Pyeongannam-do. The North Koreans said President Trump’s decision to put North Korea back on a list of states that sponsor terrorism is a “serious provocation.”

A spokesperson for North Korea's foreign ministry, said, US government's decision shows, how it is "just a tool for American style authoritarianism that can be attached or removed at any time in accordance with its interests", Sky News reported.

European researchers say they have identified the targets North Korea is planning to attack.

US officials cited the killing of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un's estranged half-brother in a Malaysian airport earlier this year as an act of terrorism.

North Korea has been accelerating its pursuit of nuclear weapons capable of targeting the United States and its Asian allies. But the unilateral measures, analysts said, only prevent USA companies and banks from doing business with those sanctioned, which was already happening in practice.

It said numerous alleged incidents took place at the theatre - located in the borough of Lambeth - and involved members of staff. The London theatre released the conclusion following its investigation into allegations concerning the House of Cards star.

Meanwhile, the worldwide push for a diplomatic solution took another blow on Tuesday, when the Trump administration imposed a series of new sanctions on a number of North Korean shipping firms as well as Chinese companies.

"This designation will impose further sanctions and penalties on North Korea and related persons and supports our maximum pressure campaign to isolate the murderous regime".

After a recent string of missile tests, and its sixth and largest nuclear test in September, North Korea's military testing has been quiet, raising speculation that Pyongyang may be waiting to see what the USA offers to entice it to join talks.

Tensions between the U.S. and North Korea have intensified since Trump took office in January.

Broncos making quarterback switch, will install Paxton Lynch as starter
Opposing teams have completed almost 73 percent of their passes against Oakland, and the Raiders have yet to intercept a pass. Hope is a term that isn't thrown around often within the Broncos' organization, particularly at the quarterback position.

"We hope the relevant parties will do more to help deescalate tensions and come back to the track of peacefully resolving the Korean Peninsula nuclear issue through dialogue and negotiation".

That the new list included a Chinese individual - the CEO of a company in a city near North Korea - and four Chinese companies show that the action also seeks to press China, the North's sole remaining ally and the largest benefactor, as well.

Some North Korea analysts argue the state sponsor of terrorism designation and new sanctions could encourage a return to testing and belligerence from Pyongyang and discourage it from entering talks.

He further disclosed that the designation is long overdue step and part of the U.S.
