North Korea 'will NEVER give up nukes if USA breaks Iran deal'

North Korea 'will NEVER give up nukes if USA breaks Iran deal'

President Donald Trump on Monday tweeted that policies under previous USA administrations have failed to contain the North Korean nuclear threat.

The poll was conducted about a week after Trump intensified rhetorical exchanges with his counterpart Kim Jong Un, dubbing him "Rocket Man" and threatening in a September 19 speech at the U.N.to "totally destroy" North Korea if the U.S.is forced to defend itself and its allies.

Donald Trump may be planning to visit the demilitarised zone (DMZ) separating North and South Korea, it has been claimed. North Korean officials told the South their soldiers shouted warnings, but the tourist didn't respond even after they fired a warning shot.

The North/South joint venture with South Korea was suspended past year to punish the Kim Jong Un government for conducting nuclear and missile tests, and to cut off a possible source of funding for Pyongyang's illicit weapons development program.

South Korean defence authorities on yesterday said the bombers staged a simulated air-to-ground missile firing drill with two South Korean fighters over the Sea of Japan (East Sea).

Also, a top Central Intelligence Agency official for the Korean Peninsula, said that the United States was expecting some new provocation from Kim on October 10.

Besides, the back of the phone also seems to be curved at the edges, which should help users hold it more comfortably. According to rumors, the Nokia 9 will come powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 processor and will feature 4GB RAM .

Trump hosted a discussion on Tuesday on options to respond to any North Korean aggression or, if necessary, to prevent Pyongyang from threatening the United States and its allies with nuclear weapons, the White House said in a statement.

However it is unlikely North Korea would agree to allow the business owners' request to visit their facilities, given the heightened tensions over Pyongyang's nuclear and missile programs.

While Australia underscores maximum diplomatic and economic pressure when dealing with North Korea issues, Defense Minister Marise Payne also stressed Canberra will continue to work with Seoul and Washington highlighting the key is supporting regional security.
