United States considers shooting down N.Korea missile tests

22 April 2017

There are fears a misstep by the North or US President Donald Trump could causes disaster. He warned the president to be very careful not to explicitly or even implicitly draw a red line when it comes to North Korea. Lu said Beijing wants to resume the multi-party negotiations that ended in stalemate in 2009 and suggested that US plans to deploy a missile defense system in South Korea were damaging its relations with China. "They are afraid of the firm alliance between South Korea and the US, and of strong independent defense capabilities". The rogue nation also claimed the USA and its allies "should not mess with us".

"North Korea is the most unsafe and urgent threat to peace and security in the Asia-Pacific", Pence said. "Abandon your nuclear weapons".

China has recently shown "tangible indications" that it is co-operating with the U.S.to turn up the pressure on Pyongyang, a senior State Department official said Monday.

"We'll be conducting more missile tests on a weekly, monthly and yearly basis", Han said.

With escalated tensions on the Korean Peninsula, the vice president signaled that the Trump administration will not tolerate a nuclear DPRK.

North Korea has conducted a series of ballistic missile launches in recent months in defiance of United Nation sanctions and concerns have been growing that the reclusive state could soon conduct a sixth nuclear test. But they said Russian Federation objected because a sentence in the draft expressing the council's commitment "to a peaceful, diplomatic and political solution to the situation" dropped the words "through dialogue" that had been in previous statements. China is defending its trade practices with North Korea after Chinese-made vehicles were seen carrying ballistic missiles during a military parade despite global sanctions against selling military hardware to Pyongyang.

On Sunday, Mr Trump wrote on Twitter that China was working with the USA on "the North Korea problem". "Everybody has been outplayed, they've all been outplayed by this gentleman, and we'll see what happens". Do you really want North Korea to have a missile that can hit California with a nuclear weapon on top of it.
