North Korea conducts another rocket engine test

They rejected claims the student had been tortured during his time in captivity in North Korea, where he was accused of espionage.

Efforts by both sides to seek reconciliation through sports exchanges have also sometimes led to breakthroughs.

The North Korean state newspaper Rodong Sinmun, on Thursday, called U.S. President Donald Trump a "lunatic" and a "reckless war maniac" and said he could mount a preemptive strike against North Korea to divert attention from the political crisis at home.

The North also conducted two nuclear tests a year ago alone as it openly pursues a long-range nuclear missile that could reach the U.S. mainland.

SEOUL - South Korea said Friday that it is closely monitoring North Korea's missile development in cooperation with the United States amid a news report that the North has conducted another rocket engine test.

Pyongyang's state-run newspaper Rodong Sinmun, the official mouthpiece of the Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea, also warned US ally South Korea that following "psychopath" Trump's lead "will only lead to disaster".

"We hold North Korea accountable for Otto Warmbier's unjust imprisonment, and demand the release of three other Americans who have been illegally detained".

Calling North Korea the "top security threat" to the United States, Tillerson said China has a "diplomatic responsibility to exert much greater economic and diplomatic pressure on the regime if they want to prevent further escalation in the region".

South Korean President Moon Jae-in on Saturday invited North Korea to the 2018 Winter Olympic Games, saying sports could serve as a peace maker.

Warmbier was buried yesterday in OH, less than a week after he was sent back home in a mysterious coma.

"Let us state the facts plainly: Otto Warmbier, an American citizen, was murdered by the Kim Jong-un regime", he said.

The new ballistic missile, appears to be an improved variant of the Hyunmoo-2 (현무, which literally means "Guardian of the Northern Sky") ballistic missile, likely to be designated the Hyunmoo 2c.

The US are activating a missile defence system in South Korea and tightened sanctions against the North in April.

"There are some areas to play with", Fitzpatrick believes, "if talks would ever ensue".

President Moon says he hopes North Korea will not only come to the Olympics next year but he also suggested the two Koreas jointly bid to host the 2030 World Cup.

"I think it's pretty clear that President Trump has climbed the learning curve when it comes to the complexity of the North Korean situation", Fitzpatrick summed up. He joined the network in 1998 as a correspondent.
