North Korea will soon Improve its Nuclear Program, said the CIA Chief

Ronald Reagan is nuclear powered

A North Korea diplomat has said the country's ballistic nuclear weapons programme is non-negotiable.

Tensions have escalated in recent months with North Korea recently testing what it said was a hydrogen bomb on Sept 3 and firing a missile over Japan.

A Ugandan official says North Korean military experts and representatives of North Korean companies have been forced to leave the country, in a bid to comply with United Nations sanctions over Pyongyang's nuclear weapons program.

The warning by Mike Pompeo, director of the Central Intelligence Agency, comes as North Korea has threatened to hit the continental US with a nuclear-tipped long-range missile. Before the two diplomats engaged in official talks, the USA representative, Joseph Yun, extended his congratulations to his South Korean counterpart, Lee Do-hoon, as this was the first time the two sat down for a one-on-one since Lee was appointed Seoul's Special Representative for Korean Peninsula Peace and Security Affairs one month ago. "The US should expect that it would face unimaginable strike at an unimaginable time", the Korean Central News Agency warned.

"But when you're now talking about months", he said, "our capacity to understand that at a detailed level is in some sense irrelevant". Kim Jong-un called Trump a "mentally deranged U.S. dotard" and pledged to "tame him with fire", while the USA president called the North Korean leaders a "little rocket man on a suicide mission".

He added: "Right now the leadership of North Korea have deployed missiles aimed at the United States and are doing these provocations, but they desperately want relations with the USA".

"We believe that the USA, but not any other country, may mount a nuclear attack", Choe Hui, the Head of the North Korean Foreign Ministry's Department on North American Affairs said.

China has made progress in helping curb the nuclear threats from North Korea, Mr Pompeo said, but the U.S. is hoping it will do more given the "great relationship" that has developed between Mr Xi and President Donald Trump. The damning message came on the heels of Bishop's visit to a border village in South Korea on October 11, whence she called on the worldwide community to step up pressure on North Korea.

"For Washington, being together and being well coordinated with Seoul is (our) No. 1 priority", Yun said at the start of the meeting.

Tensions have heightened amid North Korea's nuclear and missile tests and exchanges of inflammatory rhetoric between Trump and the North Korean leadership.
