Switzerland tightens sanctions against North Korea

Be it a war of words with US President Donald Trump or the sanctions imposed by the United Nations, nothing seems to have rattled North Korea and its leader Kim Jong-un. Similarly, the White House too had released a report earlier this month claiming North Korea was developing chemical and biological weapons that can be delivered via missiles.

"Through various channels, we've recently learned that the North has completed a new satellite and named it Kwangmyongsong-5", the Joongang Ilbo daily reported, quoting a South Korean government source.

An unnamed South Korean official said: "Anthrax antibodies have been found in the North Korean soldier who defected this year".

The resolution, drafted by the USA, has capped crude oil supplies at 4 million barrels a year; the Security Council will effect further reductions if the North conducts another nuclear or ICBM test. Pundits attribute the falling frequency to North Korea's increased confidence towards its state power.

Investigation in May said that the two men, along with weapons developer Jang Chan-ha, were handpicked by Kim Jong-Un And were very popular with him. The test was Pyongyang's third ICMB test this year and its 20th ballistic missile launch of this year.

Beijing also imported no iron ore, coal or lead from North Korea in November, the second full month of the latest trade sanctions imposed by the UN.

Along with the murder charge, he is also facing trial for first-degree racketeering and first-degree leader of racketeering. Her body was discovered by a handyman who cared for pet birds in the couple's home in the suburb of Atlantic City.

There are unconfirmed reports that North Korea has succeeded in such experiments, Fox News said, attributing the information to the Japanese newspaper.

In its 2018 forecast, South Korea's Unification Ministry said it believed the North would eventually find ways to blunt the effects of the sanctions, which seek to limit its access to refined petroleum products and crude oil and its earnings from workers overseas.

At the time, North Korea said that the new measures were "a violent breach of our republic's sovereignty and an act of war that destroys the peace and stability of the Korean peninsula and a wide region". The United Nations has blocked eight North Korean ships to date.

The survey also showed 32.5 percent of USA -based respondents were in favor of US military action, while that number was lower in Japan, or 20.6 percent.

A report by the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) said that North Korea has taken steps to strengthen the capabilities for self defense and pre-emptive attacks with nuclear force.
