Kim Jong Un to complete nuke program despite international sanctions

U.S. Legislator Seeks Sanctions Against Chinese Banks

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un on Saturday celebrated the success of the latest missile launch and claimed the weapons programme establishes an equilibrium with the US.

On Friday morning, North Korea fired a ballistic missile over Hokkaido - the second missile fired over Japan since the one that occurred last month and the first since North Korea conducted its sixth nuclear test.

The launch also seemed to be meant to send a message to the USA, flying a distance equivalent to that from North Korea to Guam, the United States territory that has come under threat from Pyongyang in recent weeks.

President Donald Trump has also vowed not to allow North Korea develop a weapon capable of launching missiles into mainland United States of America.

While the North has refused to accept South Korean offers of dialogue, Kim's remarks made it clear Pyongyang wants Washington's respect.

Adding, that their goals is "to establish the equilibrium of real force with the U.S. and make the USA rulers dare not talk about military option for the DPRK [Democratic People's Republic of Korea]".

"We called on our USA partners and others to implement political and diplomatic solutions that are provided for in the resolution", he said.

President Donald Trump is due to address the United Nations next week, as well as meet the Japanese and South Korean leaders.

The Security Council this week imposed a new raft of sanctions on North Korea, slapping an export ban on textiles, freezing work permits to North Korean guest workers and placing a cap on oil supplies. The missile was sacked from Sunan district near Pyongyang and reached an altitude of about 770 km, travelling 3,700 km before landing in the sea off Hokkaido, South Korea's military said.

The release further said that this "unilateral act" by North Korea had clearly undermined regional peace and security. That's far enough for it to have been able to strike Guam, a USA territory in the western Pacific Ocean notes BBC News.

Fresh sanctions on North Korea could be imposed by the United Nations over the coming days. He called on the North leadership to comply with the relevant Security Council resolutions.

Ambassador Cui Tiankai on Friday told reporters at an embassy event: 'Honestly, I think the United States should be doing. much more than now, so that there's real effective worldwide co-operation on this issue'.

White House National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster also had warned that "there is a military option", though he said it is not the Trump administration's preferred way to deal with the crisis.
