Japan to extend unilateral sanctions against North Korea

North Korea Fires Ballistic Missile Before Xi-Trump Meeting

The firing was made as South Korean and USA troops were conducting their springtime drills that the North views as an invasion rehearsal. The missile launch may be a precursor, with more to come as the summit starts later this week, Cossa said.

Watchers say the first meeting was a "get to know you" session, but with Trump accepting President Xi's invitation to visit Beijing for a state visit, there are indications the two countries are willing to improve ties and boost cooperation on the issues of bilateral trade and North Korea.

The constant testing has deepened concern, especially in nearby Japan and neighbouring South Korea - and also in Washington over fears Pyongyang could soon develop a nuclear-armed missile capable of reaching the United States mainland.

Council members said they "deplore" all North Korean ballistic missile activity, stressing it contributes to the country's development of nuclear weapons delivery systems and diverts resources from the needs of its people.

Korea fires ballistic missile ahead of Trump-Xi meeting
Trump has said China must do more to pressure North Korea to halt its nuclear and missile programs. South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff said the missile flew about 60 kilometres (37 miles).

The leaders of the world's two superpowers wrapped up their two-day summit with trade topping the agenda and a mutual understanding on North Korea.

"This administration wants to see them act and I think they're going to pressure them to do that", she said.

Recent outside satellite imagery show possible preparations for a new nuclear test at the North's main nuclear test site, such as the laying of communication cables used to initiate a test and collect data.

"[We] agreed that yesterday's missile launch by North Korea was a unsafe provocative act and a grave threat to security", Abe said.

Snoop was one of several artists who paid homage to Shakur at the induction by performing one of the rapper's songs. The Hall of Fame has come a long way and we appreciate them for appreciating us for what we do.

"The president emphasized that the United States stands with its allies Japan and South Korea in the face of the serious threat that North Korea continues to pose", the statement read. Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said Wednesday that all sides needed to be involved.

Analysts say North Korea might also time nuclear and long-range rocket tests to the April 15 birthday of North Korea founder Kim Il Sung, the late grandfather of current leader Kim Jong Un.

Earlier in March, North Korea fired four ballistic missiles that flew about 1,000 kilometers (620 miles), with three of them landing in waters that Japan claims as its exclusive economic zone.

But Tillerson did note Washington is prepared to come up with its own ways to solve the North Korea issue if Beijing doesn't work with the U.S. The KN-15 missile tested in February flew about 500 kilometers (310 miles).
