N. Korea says US 'foolish' for calling UN security meeting

Kelly Craft the US ambassador to the United Nations seen here in December 2019 has warned North Korea against a long-range missile test

Kelly Craft at UN: North Korea missile launches 'risk closing the door' on diplomatic progress

Denuclearization talks have stalled since the summit between North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and U.S. President Donald Trump broke down in February after they failed to match Pyongyang's denuclearization steps with Washington's sanctions relief and other concessions.

The United States trusts that North Korea "will turn away from further hostility and threats, and instead make a bold decision to engage with us", she said.

At the UN Security Council, US ambassador Kelly Craft voiced concern that North Korea was indicating it would test intercontinental ballistic missiles "which are created to attack the continental United States with nuclear weapons".

Hinting at further sanctions, Craft said: 'If events prove otherwise, we, this Security Council, must all be prepared to act accordingly'.

The US ambassador, Kelly Craft, told a UN Security Council meeting that the US is concerned that Kim will resume testing his intercontinental missiles.

North Korea has condemned the US decision to call a United Nations Security Council meeting, at which the American envoy called on other nations to "act accordingly" in response to threats or provocation from Pyongyang.

Kelly Craft speaks to reporters outside of a United Nations security council meeting on North Korea.

Rapper Juice Wrld Predicted His Death At 21 In His Song "Legends"
A spokesperson for the Cook Medical Examiner's office revealed to E! He was pronounced dead a short time later. Earlier this year, Sting confirmed he had given Juice WRLD his blessing to sample " Shape of My Heart ".

It comes as the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations warned Pyongyang on Wednesday of the consequences it would face if it carries out the threat of a missile test in the New Year.

She added: "The United States is prepared to be flexible on how we approach this matter.

However, as we already declared, we have nothing to lose more and we are ready to take a countermeasure corresponding to anything that the USA opts for", the Foreign Ministry representative said.

That is simply a lie.

He was referring to Pyongyang's promised commitments both to denuclearization and ending tests of long range missiles and nuclear weapons.

"He wants to work with North Korea". Hostilities in the bloody US-led conflict which devastated the Korean Peninsula ended with an armistice, but the countries involved remain at war.

"The US talked about a "corresponding measure" in the meeting". The US has offered to lift sanctions if Kim agrees to a denuclearisation programme.

Strong U.S. job growth showcases economy's resilience
Financial activities employment grew by 13,000, with the industry noting job gains of 116,000 in the last 12 months. Mining jobs - which includes the shale oil sector - bucked the positive trending, shedding 7,000 jobs in November.

At most, Mr Trump has revived his "Rocket Man" nickname for Mr Kim and boasted "we have the most powerful military we've ever had" and if necessary "we'll use it".

Last Thursday, North Korea's first vice foreign minister, Choe Son-hui, responded to the insult by saying it was a sign of "the relapse of the dotage of a dotard" on the part of Trump.

Beyond its slew of ballistic missile launches in recent months, North Korea last weekend it said it had performed a "very important test" at its long-range rocket launch site.

The US received strong support from France and the United Kingdom, with the British ambassador Karen Pierce urging North Korea to change its mind. As a result, the call for a meeting by European powers fell short of the minimum number of votes needed and so it did not take place.

The Republic of Korea Air Force, an aerial warfare service branch of South Korea, has released a new advertising video showing F-35A stealth fighter striking North Korea's latest missile system. It also once again demonstrates that the United States, among other imperialist powers, cynically exploits "human rights issues"-turning them on or off to suit its national interests".

Yesterday, the United States ambassador Kelly Craft, voiced concerns about the North's ominous "Christmas Gift" if the U.S. did not make concessions by the end of the year. North Korean press statements claimed the missile could "strike anywhere on earth".

2019 has been a year of mass social upheaval. Trump's negotiations with Kim have never been primarily about North Korea's tiny nuclear arsenal that poses no significant threat to the US. We need you to help the WSWS and ICFI make 2020 the year of global socialist revival.
