North Korea resumes activity at nuclear test site, watchdog says

Южная Корея пригрозила КНДР уничтожением

North Korea carried out its sixth and most powerful nuclear test on September 3, worsening already fraught U.S.

The Nuclear Safety and Security Commission said its land-based xenon detector in the northeastern part of the country found traces of xenon-133 isotope on nine occasions, while its mobile equipment off the country's east coast detected traces of the isotope four times.

Commercial satellite imagery has helped identify multiple landslides at the Punggye-ri Nuclear Test Site near Mt. Mantap, the analysts say in a new report published on 38 North, a website devoted to news out of North Korea.

Xenon is a naturally occurring, colorless gas that is used in manufacturing of some sorts of lights.

China is opposed to North Korea gaining nuclear weapons, but Beijing doesn't want to cut off the isolated nation's economic lifeline to the point of complete collapse.

"The adoption of sanctions resolution against my country is an extreme manifestation of USA intention to eliminate at any cost the ideology, social system of DPRK (Democratic People's Republic of Korea) and its people", the ambassador said while addressing other state representatives in Geneva.

The watchdog noted Tuesday that images appeared to show two white vehicles near the north portal of the test "and their presence could be indicative of a post-test inspection effort".

Prior to the test, North Korean state media released images of the warhead it intends to mount on its new Hwasong-14 intercontinental ballistic missile.

On Wednesday, officials from North Korea's Foreign Ministry responded to a new list of sanctions from the U.N. Security Council, saying that they were committed to pursuing the program, "at a faster pace without the slightest diversion", the New York Times reported.

"The fact that the North Korean programme has come under sharp and closer scrutiny, that warrants some examination of its backward linkages", Jaishankar said.

Divisions remain between Conte and Chelsea board
Qarabag are clearly the underdog against Chelsea , but that does not mean they can not play the role of spoiler as well. He will need to produce the performance of a lifetime to keep out the attacking threats from Qarabag's group opponents.

Nikki Haley, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, claimed the measures - which are a watered-down version of the original US-drafted plan - will starve North Korea of at least $1.3bn in annual revenues.

They also appear to confirm the worst fears of many people who believe it is time for Canada to join the USA ballistic missile defence shield, after opting out of the program in 2005.

The outbreak of a military conflict on the Korean Peninsula would transform into a global war, according to the top analyst on political issues Tina Fordham, writes CNBC.

"This is in order to make the right conditions for dialogues and I would like to emphasize this", he said.

A pre-emptive strike against Pyongyang's leadership is widely seen as the most realistic of the limited military options Seoul has to deny a nuclear attack from its rival.
