North Korea Threatens to Nuke NYC in Response to Trump's Tweets

Moon is a liberal president and wants an open dialogue with his neighbors, but North Korea have given little sign of encouragement towards the new wind that is blowing in Seoul.

A Saturday editorial in Rodong Sinmun stated that the test-firing of an intercontinental ballistic missile was not far away.

The visit comes amid heightened military tensions in the region, with Pyongyang's repeated weapons tests, the latest that took place last week.

North Korea has tested 16 missiles this year, 17 if the recent surface-to-air missile test is also included, with only four test failures.

However the expert pointed out that the greater threat is that North Korea has also developed miniaturized nuclear warheads that can be mounted not only on ICBMs but on most of its ballistic missiles.

North Korea has long opposed Seoul's decision to deploy the Thaad missile shield.

Since he took office in early May, the new liberal South Korean leader has tried to balance strong support for military deterrence and worldwide sanctions against Pyongyang's continued nuclear and ballistic missiles provocations with increased engagement to restart inter-Korean dialogue and cooperation.

It's a much-delayed response to a January tweet from Donald Trump, in which he said that a North Korean strike on the USA "won't happen".

"This new-type cruise rocket is a powerful attack means capable of striking any enemy group of battleships" attempting to attack North Korea and can be used "at will", the North's official Korean Central News Agency said.

North Korea maintains that its pursuit of nuclear weapons is exclusively a means of defending itself from foreign powers such as the US.

Those tests were part of dozens of missile launches by Pyongyang since the beginning of previous year.

North Korean media often spreads propaganda and inflated claims about North Korea's weapons' capabilities.

In this Friday, June 9, 2017 photo provided by South Korean Defense Ministry on Tuesday, June 13, 2017, a suspected North Korean drone is seen in a mountain in Inje, South Korea.

In a June 12 report, the Wall Street Journal quoted senior U.S. officials as saying that the USA government has asked the Chinese government to stop over 10 Chinese companies and individuals who are believed to be linked to North Korea's nuclear weapons and missile programs from doing business with the North.

North Korea though has less affiliations with football.

The commentary said the end of the U.S.'s policies against North Korea are "near reality".
