Japan reports another suspected case of North Korea sanctions violation

The disclosure of the alleged offshore transfer comes as preparations for an expected summit between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un appeared to be in their final stages.

A second day of meetings between top diplomatic officials of the United States and North Korea are underway in NY, in an attempt to discuss nuclear disagreements and prepare for a planned historic summit between leaders. Trump had mused that Kim's "attitude" had changed after the North Korean leader's surprise visit to China two weeks ago, suggesting China was pushing Kim away from the table.

On May 26, Kim had an unannounced meeting with South Korean President Moon Jae-in, who is acting as a go-between for the high-stakes summit between the North and the USA since the recent breakthrough in détente between Seoul and Pyongyang, to get the summit with Trump back on track.

Initially, the Trump-Kim summit was scheduled June 12 in Singapore, but on May 24, Trump said he was pulling out from the meeting, citing hostility from North Korea. "The people of #NorthKorea can have a brighter future and the world can be more peaceful". "It was the first official meeting with him face to face", TASS quoted a source in the minister's delegation as saying.

The demolition was published in state media last week, but the actions taken were initially met with skepticism, Daily NK reported Saturday.

Oil prices are falling fast. Here's why
The U.S.is due to reimpose economic sanctions on Iran after recently deciding to withdraw from its nuclear pact with Tehran. The oil price fell 2 per cent on Monday from $US76.17 to $US74.49, wiping out much of the gains over the past month.

Kim Yong Chol is a vice chairman of the North Korean ruling party's central committee.

Kim was known as a leading student activist in the 1980s who spread North Korea's Juche ideology, but later became an activist promoting democracy and human rights in North Korea. Until recently, the North has viewed South Korea and the U.S.as its adversaries.

"This clearly indicates that there will be no complete removal of nuclear capabilities", he said. It's the highest-level official North Korean visit to the United States in 18 years.

Last month North Korea's foreign minister Ri Yong Ho held rare talks with Lavrov in Moscow as Pyongyang moves to improve strained ties with global powers. I believe they will be coming down to Washington on Friday.

Russian Federation has forcefully injected itself into the fraught diplomatic dance around North Korea's nuclear weapons programme, demanding the worldwide community lift sanctions on Pyongyang before it even begins to dismantle its arsenal. Written in English by Roseanne Gerin.
