Malaysia to settle its problem with North Korea, says Dr M | Malaysia

"Our analysis of open-source imagery of the Yongbyon complex led us to estimate they may have added sufficient plutonium and highly-enriched uranium for an additional five to seven nuclear weapons", says study co-author Siegfried Hecker, who estimated that North Korea made enough nuclear fuel in 2017 to build about 30 warheads.

US Special Representative for North Korea Stephen Biegun held three days of talks in Pyongyang last week to prepare for the second summit, which he said would include discussion of such corresponding steps.

Last week, Trump expressed hope on Twitter that North Korea would become an economic "Rocket".

After last year's summit, Trump announced a halt to joint military exercises with South Korea, saying they were expensive and paid for mostly by the US.

Late previous year, the USA military warned Korean workers on its bases they might be put on leave from mid-April if no deal was agreed. North Korea agreed to return to the United States some 50 boxes of remains believed to contain the bodies of missing American servicemembers from the Korean War. The U.S. hopes North Korea will give up its nuclear weapons in exchange for an end to punishing global sanctions.

But both sides worked to hammer out an agreement to minimise the impact on South Koreans working on US military bases, and focus on nuclear talks ahead of a second U.S.

The ministry said that although the United States had demanded a "huge increase" in payment, they were able to reach an agreement that reflects "the security situation of the Korean peninsula".

Hong said South Korea is behind Malpass.

The commander of USA forces in South Korea has said he has seen "little to no verifiable change" in North Korea's military capabilities, just weeks away from a second summit between Donald Trump and regime leader Kim Jong-un.

"Today is day 440 since the last strategic provocation of the [North Koreans] ... either a missile flight test or nuclear weapons test", he said.

According to the Chosun Ilbo newspaper, the unidentified administrator of the official Paekhwawon guesthouse in Pyongyang was found guilty of corruption after the ruling Workers' Party's Organization and Guidance Department conducted a raid on his property in October, on North Korean leader Kim Jong Un's orders.

The chief manager of the North Korean guesthouse where South Korean President Moon Jae-in stayed with his wife during his visit to Pyongyang was executed in public for embezzling some $3 million, a local daily here reported Tuesday.
