North Korea threatens to strike New York

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe departs the White House on Feb. 10 2017

South Korea has accused North Korea of syping on their facilities.

The article, titled "US hostile policy is bound to go bankrupt", goes on to state that "the U.S. is feeling uneasy as this might be proven in practice".

"Trump blustered early this year that the DPRK's final access to a nuclear weapon that can reach the USA mainland will never happen", KCNA wrote.

North Korea has hinted that it could test a long range missile capable of hitting NY, months after President Donald Trump insisted: "It won't happen".

Seoul agreed previous year to deploy the missile interceptor system to guard against threats from nuclear-armed North Korea, despite angry opposition from China - which believes THAAD could undermine its own military capabilities.

In its statement, the WCC's executive committee offered a range of bold ideas to further "the ecumenical movement's support for and engagement in new initiatives for dialogue and peaceful coexistence on the Korean peninsula". He has also urged China to put pressure on Pyongyang, as its sole economic lifeline.

The US successfully tested a ballistic-missile defense system meant to intercept a nuclear attack from North Korea in June, but it did so in conditions short of an actual combat situation. "The North has already conducted a number of experiments to test various elements of the missile", she said.

This year North Korea has test launched a variety of missiles, demonstrating technical advancements North Korea threatened that it will test launch an ICBM (intercontinental ballistic missile) before long.

Moreover, just 5,233 companies within China either import goods from or export goods to the North, compared to some 67,163 Chinese firms exporting to South Korea, the report said, making it easier to target specific firms that may be helping the country violate sanctions.

North Korea has tested 16 missiles this year, 17 if the recent surface-to-air missile test is also included, with only four test failures.

The reason for Japan's readiness isn't clear at this moment, nor is the reason for their belief that North Korea would intentionally launch atomic weapons at them without cause.

A US missile defense system called Terminal High Altitude Area Defense, or THAAD, is seen at a golf course in Seongju, South Korea, on June 7.
