Satellite photos suggest North Korea preparing submarine missile test

China North Korea UN Wang Yi

North Korea said the sanctions infringed its sovereignty and it was ready to give Washington a "severe lesson" with its strategic nuclear force in response to any USA military action.

The sanctions were in response to the North conducting two intercontinental ballistic missile tests last month that President Kim boasted showed he could strike any part of the United States.

Activity on a SINPO-class experimental ballistic missile submarine at the Mayang-do navy shipyard and submarine base, he said, suggests "the North may be preparing for a new series of "at sea" test launches, has undertaken modifications or upgrades to the submarine's launch systems, or is developing a more advanced version of the Pukguksong-1".

The question of whether Beijing would go along with much harsher sanctions against North Korea was answered this weekend.

North Korea will "make the US pay dearly for all the heinous crime it commits against the state and people of this country", North Korean state-media wrote Monday.

In Phnom Penh, Cambodian Foreign Minister Prak Sokhonn said he called on the North to soften its stance during a meeting with its foreign minister, Ri Yong Ho, in Manila.

The U.N. Security Council unanimously imposed sanctions on North Korea aimed at pressuring Pyongyang to end its nuclear program.

According to a new USA intelligence assessment reported by the Washington Post on Tuesday, North Korea has successfully produced a miniaturized nuclear warhead that can fit inside its missiles, crossing a key threshold.

"It would be a very costly war, in terms of... in terms of the suffering of mainly the South Korean people", he said. "If it believes it is only North Korea rather than the United States and South Korea as well to blame for the nuclear issue, this ill-fitting mindset will not help solve the crisis", it said.

North Korea says its ICBMs are a legitimate means of defense.

"The North Koreans contend that they can not relinquish their nuclear program until the USA ends its hostile policies", she said.

"We will know it when we see it", he told reporters.

The ministers met in the Philippines' capital on the sidelines of the ASEAN forum. In particular, the restrictions target imports of coal, iron ore, lead and seafood imports from the Asian nation to UN member states.

Ms Kang urged her northern counterpart to accept Seoul's offers of military talks to lower tensions on the divided peninsula, and for discussions on a new round of reunions for divided families, according to South Korea's Yonhap news agency.

"After many years of failure, countries are coming together to finally address the dangers posed by North Korea".
