US missile submarine arrives in South Korea

US missile submarine arrives in South Korea

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un oversaw the country's military conduct a massive live-fire drill on Tuesday (25 April), which coincided with the arrival of the US Navy's nuclear powered submarine - the USS Michigan - in South Korea.

"The status quo in North Korea is. unacceptable", President Trump said at a White House meeting with United Nations Security Council members yesterday.

The heightened activity takes place as a US aircraft carrier, the USS Carl Vinson, heads toward the Korean Peninsula and as experts said North Korea is preparing for additional missile launches and a possible nuclear test. Trump outlined security concerns to the visiting diplomats, singling out Syria and North Korea. "People have put blindfolds on for decades, and now it's time to solve the problem", he said at the White House. It launched a missile one day after the 105th birthday of late founder Kim Il Sung on April 15.

In a defiant bit of timing, South Korea announced Wednesday that key parts of a contentious US missile defense system had been installed a day after rival North Korea showed off its military power.

Kanasugi also said a ban on oil exports to North Korea, which would be certain to have a huge impact on the country's economy, will also be on the agenda at his meeting with Wu.

Kim In Ryong, North Korean ambassador to the United Nations, accused the USA of using "gangster-like logic" and being "hell-bent on risky saber-rattling in South Korea", while speaking at a press conference in NY last week. The carrier group will conduct joint exercises with the South Korean military. Groups of people also gathered in open spaces around the city to take part in organized dancing sessions, another common way of marking holidays in North Korea.

North Korea stopped short of conducting major provocative actions, such as a sixth nuclear test, for the 85th anniversary of the founding of its military.

Kim also said those present recognized Pyongyang's ally China's recent steps toward that goal.

The port call by the USS Michigan came as a USA aircraft carrier strike group steams for Korean waters and as the top nuclear envoys from South Korea, Japan and the United States met in Tokyo to discuss the North's refusal to give up its nuclear program.

White House press secretary Sean Spicer said the briefing to senators will be delivered by four top administration officials: Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats and the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Joseph Dunford.

A rapid tempo of North Korean weapons testing in the past year has pushed Kim Jong Un's authoritarian nation closer to developing a nuclear-tipped missile that could reach the US mainland.

The Michigan's visit to Busan comes after North Korea on Sunday threatened to sink the American aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson, which is beginning joint drills with two Japanese destroyers in the western Pacific Ocean.

"I can't believe this is going to be part of Donald Trump's resume - that I allowed the North Koreans to develop a missile that hit America", he said.

USS Carl Vinson carrier strike group is deployed near the Korean Peninsula, along with vessels from the Japanese navy.
