South Korea: N. Korea ballistic missile program evolving faster than expected

Laurie Berry | 17 May, 2017, 11:03

"We're going to make sure we put the pressure on them economically, diplomatically, politically and internationally".

Following that launch, Washington began talks with China on possible new United Nations sanctions. "I hope that the Trump administration will support President Moon, and that Pyongyang won't pre-empt diplomacy with a nuclear or long-range missile test".

The United States is in talks with China - Pyongyang's main trading partner - on a possible new sanctions resolution and the Security Council is expected to hold a closed-door emergency meeting starting around 2000 GMT Tuesday. Some anxious they might find war at their doorstep, while others say they are more concerned about the potential loss of vital tourism dollars than they are a nuclear attack.

The Security Council adopted two sanctions resolutions past year to ramp up pressure on Pyongyang and deny leader Kim Jong-Un the hard currency needed to fund his military programs.

North Korea is working to build an ICBM capable of carrying a nuclear warhead that will reach the United States, some 8,000 kilometers (4,800 miles) away. "Is it possible or not? But rather than trying too hard to have conversation, I think we need to show a stern attitude at some level".

Skilled hackers may have simply made it look like it had origins in North Korea by using similar techniques.

Hackers stole movie scripts, entire films, internal memos and personal information on movie stars and Sony employees. "There is no reason for North Korea to be having these actions outside of the fact they just choose to do so".

Israel provided the intel Trump shared with Russian Federation
Regarding allegations that Trump may have jeopardized intelligence-gathering methods, McMaster said that was not the case. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said, "We could do with a little less drama from the White House".

Haley noted that this weekend's missile came within 60 miles of Russia's border and said Russian Federation is "all wrong".

Clues pointed to Lazarus, and the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation went on to conclude that North Korea was behind the breach. "They have really tried to help us in our communications with North Korea". "You have to pick a side".

"The similarities we see between malware linked to that group and WannaCry are not unique enough to be strongly suggestive of a common operator", cybersecurity researcher John Miller said. "What we are saying is that for peace on the Korean peninsula, he has to stop his testing".

North Korea launched Sunday what appeared to be its longest-range ballistic missile yet, saying it was capable of carrying a "heavy nuclear warhead" in a test aimed at bringing the USA mainland within reach.

While some of North Korea's hacking activities appear to be motivated by its cash shortage or personal retribution, the regime also conducts more traditional attacks on its southern neighbor.

The research will be closely followed by law enforcement agencies around the world, including Washington, where President Donald Trump's homeland security adviser said on Monday that both foreign nations and cyber criminals were possible culprits.
