US House Minority Leader Expresses Concern N. Korea Could Sell Weapons

North Korea recently conducted a test launch of an ICBM referred to as a 'Hwasong-14, ' on July 4, but the worldwide community has yet to present a resolution on the matter due to tension between the United States and China.

WASHINGTON-Frustrated that China has not done more to rein in North Korea, the Trump administration could impose new sanctions on small Chinese banks and other firms doing business with Pyongyang within weeks, two senior USA officials said. A review of activity at key nuclear facilities in North Korea show more reprocessing cycles than previously known for nuclear fuel, raising the risk that the Kim regime has more plutonium-based weapons than the United States assumes.

A USA senator introduced legislation on Friday looking to prohibit any entities engaging with North Korea from the dollar system and to impose sanctions on businesses using North Korean labor.

Beijing has repeatedly proposed negotiations on the basis that North Korea freezes its nuclear and missile tests in return for the US and South Korea halting their large-scale joint military exercises. They refuse to believe anything he says. Chinese exports to the North were mainly consumer goods such as textiles, which aren't on the list of sanctioned items, the spokesman said.

Pyongyang announced the successful launch of its first intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM), the Hwasong-14, on July 4.

Experts at 38 North estimated in April that North Korea could have as many as 20 nuclear bombs and could produce one more each month.

North Korea may have produced an undetermined amount of additional plutonium for nuclear weapons since September, an analysis of thermal imagery showed Friday. China's ambassador to the UN, Liu Jieyi, pushed for an end to combined U.S. He recently tweeted that North Korea is looking for trouble. The United States has claimed that THAAD would protect South Korea from the erratic missile tests and any potential attack orchestrated by North Korea. At the same time, the U.S. is drawing up its own unilateral sanctions against North Korea, as well as secondary sanctions against countries allegedly in breach of the United States measures.

Fox News notes that North Korean workers have helped Russian Federation construct a soccer stadium in St. Petersburg, and helped build a luxury apartment complex in Moscow. It's not a stretch of the imagination to assume that officials in the Treasury Department are trying to convince the White House that it must get far more confrontational with China than it has been to date.

In the 1980s and 1990s, North Korea was a major supplier of iron ore to Chinese steelmakers, according to Philip Kirchlechner, director of Iron Ore Research Pty in Perth.

"The U.S. conventional and nuclear forces, as well as South Korea and Japan's forces, greatly outstrip North Korea in terms of technology", Hanham asserted.

As the matter came before the UNSC and after talking to US Permanent Representative Nikki Haley, Mr Trump tweeted: "Trade between China and North Korea grew nearly 40 per cent in the first quarter".

"Should the U.N. Security Council adopt another 'resolution on sanctions, ' this will trigger corresponding measures", KCNA cited the official as saying. It belittled the role of Japan and South Korea, neighbours heavily guarded by the U.S. military.
