North Korea rules out nuke negotiations

Lee Do-hoon, South Korea's special representative for Korean Peninsula peace and security affairs and his U.S. counterpart Joseph Yun shake hands before holding a meeting in a hotel on the southern resort island of Jeju on Nov. 17 2017 to

North Korea responded by launching another ballistic missile over Japan on September 15.

North Korean defectors often come over to South Korea with parasites, in one case with more than 30 types of ringworm. That's according to a report released Thursday by 38North, a North Korea monitoring project based out of Washington, DC.

It said the Nov 5 images showed two large circular objects that could be sections of a submarine's pressure hull. North Korea has not commented on the defection.

"The main issue in DPRK [the Democratic People's Republic of Korea] is a monotonous diet, mainly rice or maize, kimchi and bean paste, lacking in essential fats and protein", WFP said.

North Korea is under heavy global pressure to end its nuclear and missile programmes, pursued in defiance of U.N. Security Council resolutions, but has vowed never to give up its nuclear arsenal which it says it needs to counter perceived USA aggression.

In July, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un declared he could strike the entire continental USA after test-firing the regime's second ICBM within a month - a claim disputed by American officials.

There are concerns in South Korea that any potential United States strikes against North Korea's nuclear and missile programs could provoke devastating North Korean retaliation against South Korea.

Trump, who wants China to play a bigger role in pressuring North Korea to end its nuclear program, reacted to the announcement of the visit by calling it a "big move".

Between January and September, China exported almost 49,000 tonnes of corn to North Korea, compared with 3,125 tonnes in 2016, according to figures from Beijing.

Yonhap, citing unidentified diplomats in Beijing, said there was a good chance that Mr Song would meet Mr Kim tomorrow.

Meanwhile, the Asean said it remained resolute in its shared commitment to preserve the Southeast Asian region as a Nuclear Weapon Free Zone and free of all other weapons of mass destruction. It has not tested a missile since firing one over Japan on Sept 15.

"Although we do not have solid figures showing health conditions of North Korea, medical experts assume that parasite infection problems and serious health issues have been prevalent in the country", said Choi Min-ho, professor of the college of medicine at Seoul National University, according to the Guardian.

In an interview with Reuters, Han Tae Song, North Korea's ambassador to the United Nations in Geneva, brushed off the new sanctions which the Trump administration says it's preparing, as well as the possibility of North Korea being added to a USA list of states sponsoring terrorism.

"As long as there is continuous hostile policy against my country by the USA and as long as there are continued war games at our doorstep, then there will not be negotiations", North Korea's Han said.
