Korea trade after its trucks haul missiles

"If they are used by North Korea for military objective, they must have been modified by the North Korean side", said the sales manager, who would give only his surname, Wang. The additional note that Trump didn't once refer to the North Korean leader by his name, referring to him only as "this gentleman", means that he most likely has no idea who is actually heading North Korea, nor the real situation ongoing there.

Vice President Mike Pence said on Tuesday during his visit to Japan that the USA will not relent until it ensures the Korean Peninsula is free of nuclear weapons.

In an interview with "Fox & Friends", Trump said he would not rule out a military strike if North Korea continues to conduct missile tests.

A sales manager for a Sinotruck dealer, Zhongnanhai, said the company exports about 1,000 trucks to North Korea every year under contracts that specify the vehicles are designed and manufactured for civilian use. It banned all coal imports from North Korea from February 26 as it grows increasingly impatient with North Korea's development of nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles, including a failed missile test-launch on Sunday morning.

After meetings with Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and other leaders, Pence told reporters President Donald Trump is confident economic and diplomatic pressure may persuade North Korea to cooperate.

May calls for June 8 election before Brexit talks
Mrs May says an election will root out opposition to Brexit in Parliament and strengthen her hand in negotiations with the EU. Her spokesman said she had the backing of her top team of ministers and had informed Queen Elizabeth of her plans on Monday.

"China is also making clear that it is committed to denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula and that it will do its utmost", she added. He also warned North Korea that "they have to behave".

Wu is a career diplomat and Japan expert who, according to South Korean officials, speaks little Korean and no English. "Recent satellite imagery suggests North Korea may be preparing a sixth nuclear test at Punggye-ri, where the recorded blasts have escalated in strength since the first one in 2006". Since then, China has been most vocal in calling for their resumption.

China recognizes that North Korea is a problem, but it is pursuing a distinctly different path to a resolution than the U.S. Beijing has been encouraging both countries to engage in dialogue and is critical of Washington's willingness to apply military pressure, but neither Pyongyang nor the U.S. have expressed an interest in talks.

A 2010 report from South Korean newspaper Chosun Ilbo, citing a defense white paper, said North Korean special forces had grown by 20,000 personnel over the previous two years.

Chun could not be reached for comment.
