Radioactive gas found after North's nuke test

Activity at North Korea's Punggye-ri Nuclear Test Site

North Korea has again threatened to sink Japan into the sea with a nuclear bomb and said the us should be "beaten to death like a rabid dog" after the latest sanctions on the shipment of oil products by UN Security Council in response to Pyongyang's recent nuclear test.

While there are reports of Russian smugglers exporting oil and other sanctioned goods to North Korea, 90 percent of all North Korean trade goes through China.

"They (Modi and Abe) stressed the importance of holding accountable all parties that have supported North Korea s nuclear and missile programmes", the joint statement said.

The caving in of land at the site, however, may not have been the result of the estimated 4.9-magnitude quake that took place 8 minutes after the test, the analysts say.

"The adoption of sanctions resolution against my country is an extreme manifestation of USA intention to eliminate at any cost the ideology, social system of DPRK (Democratic People's Republic of Korea) and its people", the ambassador said while addressing other state representatives in Geneva. Japan, for example, gave an estimate of 160 kilotons, while South Korea's was as low as 50 kilotons.

Pyongyang has ramped up missile testing this year, and earlier this month it conducted its sixth nuclear test, believed to be the most powerful yet, and has also claimed it has the capability to mount a hydrogen bomb on top of an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) capable of reaching the mainland US.

USA to continue sanction relief for Iran as part of nuclear deal
Tehran says it plans to adhere to the nuclear deal regardless of any probable USA decision to withdraw from the agreement. They argue that at the very least Iran is violating the spirit of the agreement with its ballistic missile tests.

A South Korean air force F-15K fighter jet releases a Taurus missile during a drill off the country's western coast, September 13, 2017.

"Japan is no longer needed to exist near us", said the Korea Asia-Pacific Peace Committee, which is North Korea's official propaganda arm.

She added that the images from the North's nuclear test in 2016 did not show substantial change on the mountain's surface. "If I want to send the most compelling message, I have been persuaded that the triad in its framework is the right way to go", Mattis said.

The missile, manufactured by Germany's Taurus Systems, has a maximum range of 500 kilometres and is equipped with stealth characteristics that will allow it to avoid radar detection before hitting North Korean targets, according to Seoul's Defence Ministry. On July 28, North Korea tested one that could theoretically hit major USA cities like Chicago, New York, or even Washington, DC.

A pre-emptive strike against Pyongyang's leadership is widely seen as the most realistic of the limited military options Seoul has to deny a nuclear attack from its rival.
