N. Korea threatens nuke program restart over sanctions

North Korean Hackers Continue to Hack Computers to Mine Cryptocurrencies

What Happened: North Korea has warned it might revive a policy aimed at strengthening its nuclear arsenal if the United States does not lift economic sanctions, the AP reported November 3.

The South's doveish president Moon Jae-in has long favored engagement with the North, which is subject to multiple UN Security Council sanctions over its nuclear and ballistic missile programs.

The Trump administration has insisted that sanctions will remain in place until North Korea ends its nuclear program, but North Korean leader Kim Jong Un's regime has demanded an incremental process of denuclearizing where USA sanctions would be lifted along the away.

In addition to holding talks with Chinese, South Korean and USA leaders, Kim now plans to hold a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin by the end of the year.

On Thursday, President Donald Trump touted his success in working with North Korea and indicated that his 2016 opponent, former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, would have brought nuclear war between the two nations.

The North came short of threatening to abandon the ongoing nuclear negotiations with the United States.

Pompeo didn't confirm a location or date for the meeting, he previously told the Voice of America it would take place "here" - a likely reference to the USA mainland.

"The US thinks that its oft-repeated "sanctions and pressure" leads to "denuclearisation".

Intelligence officials of Japan and North Korea have been communicating behind the scenes, but according to sources with knowledge of the situation, so far no major progress has been made toward the holding of face-to-face talks between their leaders or on the abduction issue.

In a statement, North Korea's foreign ministry said the "improvement of relations and sanctions is incompatible". "We can not help laughing at such a foolish idea".

"The word "byungjin" may appear again and the change of the line could be seriously reconsidered", said the statement carried by the official KCNA news agency.

Hours after the statement was released, satellite imagery seen by 38 North suggested that North Korea is continuing uranium mining and milling operations at one of the country's largest declared uranium ore concentrate facilities. Moon has previously said that Kim told him he would visit Seoul within this year when the leaders met in Pyongyang in September.

South Korea last month walked back on a proposal to lift some of its unilateral sanctions against North Korea following President Donald Trump's blunt retort that Seoul could "do nothing" without Washington's approval.

NORTH and South Korea on Friday agreed to officially inform the International Olympic Committee of their intent to co-host the 2032 Summer Olympics as they continued with reconciliation efforts.
