North Korea threatens 'thousands-fold' revenge against USA for sanctions

President Rodrigo R. Duterte addresses the Grand Celebration and closing ceremony of the 50th ASEAN Anniversary and ASEAN Ministerial Meetings held at the Philippine International Convention Center in Pasay City

All eyes are on U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, as he joined other leading nations' foreign ministers at the ASEAN conference in the Philippines.

Southeast Asian foreign ministers ended an impasse on Sunday over how to address disputes with China in the South China Sea, issuing a communique that called for militarization to be avoided and noting concern about island-building.

Speaking at a regional security forum in Manila on Monday, Wang said the new resolution showed China and the global community's opposition to North Korea's continued missile tests, the foreign ministry said in a statement on Tuesday.

Armed with extraordinary new UN sanctions, nations yesterday raced to ensure that North Korea's biggest trading partners actually carry them out, an elusive task that has undercut past attempts to strong-arm Pyongyang into abandoning its nuclear weapons.

Cambodia has previously made clear it will not back any further nuclear development efforts by North Korea.

On Monday, Pyongyang's closest ally expressed his views on North Korea's upfront rejection.

UK Expected To Unveil Post-Brexit NI Border Plan This Week
European Union negotiators have warned that an already-tight timetable could be delayed ahead of a scheduled March 2019 exit. But Brussels negotiators have insisted there are three issues to be sorted before a new relationship can be discussed.

The documents detailing the new framework have not been distributed to the public due to the sensitive provisions they contain, and when asked by journalists about their contents, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi was evasive, saying: "we don't want to prejudge the result of those negotiations".

U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson says the approval of new United Nations sanctions targeting North Korea over its nuclear and ballistic missile programs is a "very good outcome".

While Manila values its relationship with the three countries, Cayetano urged them not to meddle with the country's maritime dispute with China because "the problem of territorial disputes between China and the Philippines is between China and the Philippines".

Thornton says the USA wants to ensure that with the new sanctions, there's "not this kind of episodic back and forth that we've seen".

President Donald Trump and South Korean President Moon Jae-in are sharing their concerns about North Korea.

North Korea has successfully produced a miniaturized nuclear warhead that can fit inside its missiles, the Washington Post reported on Tuesday. The North reportedly rejected Seoul's offer of talks during a rare exchange between their foreign ministers on the sidelines of a regional security forum in Manila, Sunday.

Burnley Stun Nine-Man Chelsea At The Bridge
The Premier League champions fell apart, after captain Gary Cahill was sent off for a lunge into Steven Defour in the first half. Conte played down any sense of crisis or fear of a meltdown similar to 2015-16, insisting Chelsea would "find a solution".

The Global Times, a separate newspaper published by the People's Daily, said the United States must rein in its "moral arrogance over North Korea".

Earlier in the week President Donald Trump had indicated that the U.S. would deal with the crisis on its own, but then relented and sought help from China and Russian Federation.

Later Monday, Kono, who is said to have connections with USA officials and lawmakers, held a news conference for foreign reporters at the global media center, also a rare move for Japan's top diplomat.

The United States and North Korea's neighbors are joining in a fresh attempt to isolate Pyongyang over its nuclear and missile programs, in a global pressure campaign.

The success or failure of the latest resolution will rest with China, which accounts for 90 percent of all trade with North Korea.
