North Korea says it has tested 'ultramodern tactical weapon'

North Korea says it has tested 'ultramodern tactical weapon'

South Korea's ambassador to the United States said Wednesday that he expects the USA and North Korea to soon reschedule last week's canceled high-level talks.

Pence said the USA will keep sanctions against North Korea in place "until we have a plan, and that plan is implemented, to achieve complete, verifiable, irreversible denuclearization". These developments come as other major global stories gain steam, including the Brexit process in the United Kingdom and the still-unfolding story of journalist Jamal Khashoggi's murder by Saudi Arabian operatives - potentially with the involvement of the crown prince.

Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un will likely meet again after New Year, the USA vice president said Thursday, but insisted his government would not repeat past mistakes where "promises are broken".

South Korean President Moon Jae-in shakes hands with U.S. Vice President Mike Pence during a meeting in Singapore on November 15, 2018.

"The South Korean government has a very strong principle that both inter-Korean and foreign cooperation will happen once the denuclearisation of North Korea happens", he said at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars.

Kim said that there was no mention of sanctions during the meeting.

The U.S. will continue to make efforts toward the ultimate goal of realizing a complete, verifiable and irreversible denuclearization, Pence said.

Cho said that a promised landmark visit by Kim to Seoul was still in the planning, although he hinted it could take place later than the end of the year, the timeline set by the two sides.

In a separate interview with NBC News, Pence said the U.S. would not require Pyongyang to provide a complete list of nuclear weapons and locations before the second summit.

How NBC News got from Pence stressing the importance of "identifying all of the weapons in question" and "identifying all the development sites" to Pence saying the summit can "go ahead without a list of nuclear North Korean weapons" is a mystery.

Moon responded by saluting the "strong Korea-U.S. alliance" that made the diplomatic breakthrough with Pyongyang possible and thanked President Trump for his "strong leadership and determination".

The US and North Korea have been discussing a second meeting of their leaders after a June summit in Singapore.

"Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un was so excited to say that another great work was done by the defence scientists and munitions industrial workers to increase the defence capability of the country", the Korean Central News Agency reported.

USA officials insist on the complete, verified and irreversible denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula before sanctions are lifted.

"Spoke about our shared vision of a free and open Indo-Pacific & reaffirmed our commitment to strengthen security and counterterrorism cooperation and coordination", Pence tweeted after his meeting with Modi.

Any testing of new weapons is likely to raise tensions with Washington, which has said there will be no easing of worldwide sanctions until North Korea takes more concrete steps to abandon its nuclear weapons or long-range missiles.
