    A top aide to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un will meet this week in Washington, D.C., with President Trump and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Bloomberg News reported. Kim Yong Chol, North Korea's former spy chief, will be in Washington on Friday for negotiations concerning North Korea's nuclear program, Bloomberg reported, citing sources familiar with the matter. The meeting with Trump and Pompeo would come amid talks between the two countries to plan a second summit between Trump and Kim. The two leaders held their first summit last year in Singapore. Trump earlier this month said that the U.S....

    Lee Oui-ryuk was on the verge of dying of starvation when he stole a block of tofu in a market in North Korea at the height of a nationwide famine. Too weak to run away after he swiped the food, Lee continued eating as the seller cried and beat him with a metal rod, staining the white tofu red with his blood. At nine years old he knew the theft would end in violence, but in his head he repeated over and over: “Even if you are beaten, keep eating.” He eventually passed out and when he awoke, took a...
  • Bolton warns Syria against use of chemical weapons

    U.S. National Security Advisor John Bolton has warned the Syrian government it should not see the impending U.S. military withdrawal from the country as an invitation to use chemical weapons. U.S. President Donald Trump said in December that U.S. troops had succeeded in their mission to defeat Islamic State militants and were no longer needed in the country. The announcement, which took officials in Washington and allies abroad by surprise, contributed to Jim Mattis’ decision to resign as U.S. defense secretary and prompted concern that Islamic State could stage a comeback.

    A North Korean diplomat who was until recently acting ambassador to Italy has gone missing after reports he was seeking asylum in the West. The diplomat, Jo Song-gil, disappeared with his wife and children after leaving the embassy without notice in early November, according to Kim Min-ki, a South Korean politician who was briefed by the National Intelligence Service. The Seoul-based JoongAng Ilbo newspaper, citing an unidentified diplomatic source, said Mr Jo, 48, had applied for asylum to an unspecified Western country and was in a "safe place" with his family under the protection of the Italian Government. But a...

    The Horrible Things North Korean Soldiers Have To Go Through Life in North Korea is no walk in the park, but it’s an even more difficult situation when you’re in the military. Serving in the military is something that the majority of North Korean citizens have to do when they reach adulthood—regardless of their gender or occupation. Spending a decade of your life doing something that you don't want to do doesn’t sound good to begin with. North Koreans also have to deal with all of the terrible conditions that soldiers are forced to live through. They have to steal...

    North Korea has continued its development of intercontinental ballistic missiles despite declaring a halt to launches, having conducted a missile-linked radio wave experiment early this month, it has been learned. Despite sanctions limiting the North’s petroleum supply, the North Korean military is continuing to train at its usual levels. In response, the Japanese and U.S. governments plan to increase their surveillance of smuggling and other activities on the high seas, according to military and diplomatic sources.

    That next summit meeting between President Trump and Kim Jong-un needs to have a few blank spots on the agenda to leave room for new items of business. One of them should be the latest satellite pictures showing that two of Kim’s missile bases up in the mountains are not only failing to be dismantled but show signs of ongoing work to expand them. The Independent has some of the photos and details this week. North Korea has reportedly expanded a long-range missile base within its mountainous interior, despite a promise from Donald Trump the country was “no longer...

    New satellite images obtained exclusively by CNN reveal North Korea has significantly expanded a key long-range missile base located in the mountainous interior of the country, offering yet another reminder that diplomatic talks with the US have done little to prevent Kim Jong Un from pursuing his promise to mass produce and deploy the existing types of nuclear warheads in his arsenal. The satellite imagery offers evidence that the Yeongjeo-dong missile base and a nearby, previously unreported site remain active and have been continuously upgraded, underscoring the reality of just how far apart Washington and Pyongyang are on the issue...

  • North Korea's 'pink lady' replaced by younger presenters as state TV gets makeover

    North Korea's most famous news anchor has reportedly been replaced by younger presenters as the country's state-owned broadcaster undergoes a modern makeover. Ri Chun-hee began working for North Korean TV in 1971 and became chief news presenter of KCTV in the 1980s. Nicknamed the "pink lady," she usually wears a pink Western-style suit or traditional Hanbok dress. She has been characterised by her animated announcing style, resonant voice and sometimes vitriolic tone, and was once described as "vaguely menacing". But the 75-year-old presenter - who cried onscreen when announcing the deaths of Kim II-sung and Kim Jong-il - has not...

    Carnegie Moscow ^ | 23.11.2018 | Andrei Lankov
    North Korea’s statements of its intention to abandon nuclear weapons should not be taken too seriously: the country considers them to be the most important guarantee of the regime’s preservation. For now, North Korean nuclear weapons play a primarily defensive role, but it cannot be ruled out that in the future the nuclear program will also be used for offensive purposes. In addition, their existence increases the risk of the proliferation of nuclear weapons in East Asia. Pyongyang believes that security guarantees that could theoretically be given by the U.S. government cannot be trusted, since it is very likely that...

    Donald Trump wants North Korean leader Kim Jong Un to know that he likes him and will fulfill his wishes, South Korea's President Moon Jae-in has said, a day after meeting the US president at an economic summit in Argentina. Moon, who is hoping to host Kim soon on the first ever trip to Seoul by a North Korean leader as agreed earlier this year, said Trump had asked him to pass on a message. "The message is that President Trump has very favourable views toward Chairman Kim and he likes him," Moon told reporters aboard a flight from Argentina...
