Japan adds more North Koreans to blacklist over weapons program

The C4ADS report said a small number of interconnected Chinese firms accounted for the vast proportion of trade with North Korea, leaving the impoverished country's procurement network vulnerable to targeted, enforced sanctions.

North Korea could carry out a missile test every 2.1 weeks if the communist regime continues with such banned launches at the same pace it has done so far this year, a US expert said.

Moon explained that many South Koreans, especially former comfort women, have not accepted a 2015 deal aimed at putting the issue to rest, according to the presidential office. The trial was the first meant to replicate the flight profile of an ICBM that could be deployed by North Korea.

The isolated country, which has conducted dozens of missile tests and tested two nuclear bombs since the beginning of 2016 in defiance of U.N. Security Council resolutions, says the programme is necessary to counter USA aggression.

Moon said after the new launches that his government "won't back off even a single step and make any compromise" on the issue of national security.

Experts have consistently warned, however, that North Korea is slowly but surely working toward developing an ICBM.

A year earlier a South Korean fisherman found the wreckage of a North Korean drone in his net near a frontline island south of the rivals' disputed Yellow Sea border.


Any flare-up in the long-running dispute over "comfort women" could complicate efforts by Seoul, Tokyo and their ally Washington to cope with North Korea, which has been ramping up weapons tests since a year ago in defiance of global sanctions.

South Korean defense authorities said it is hard to spot small drones with Seoul's existing radar system.

The U-20 World Cup in South Korea wrapped up this Sunday with England the victors after a nervy 1-0 win against Venezuela at the Suwon World Cup Stadium.

A decorated veteran, Song took part in a 2009 skirmish between North and South Korean naval vessels off the western coast of the Korean Peninsula.

South Korea said on Wednesday it will hold off on installing remaining components of a controversial United States anti-missile defense system until it completes an assessment of the system's impact on the environment.

During a hearing before the Senate Armed Services Committee on June 7, Rob Soofer cited the testimony of intelligence officials who say that North Korea is poised to carry out its first ICBM test launch in 2017, Japanese news agency Kyodo News reported.
