North Korea fires unidentified projectiles toward East Sea North Korea again tests 'super-large' rocket launcher: KCNA

North Korea fires two projectiles following offer to resume nuclear talks with USA .

Kim, who had guided the testing of the same multiple rocket launcher before, said its capabilities have been "finally verified in terms of combat operation", and what remains to be done with the rocket launcher is a "running fire test", KCNA said, without elaborating on what the test would entail.

KCNA also released photos of the test that showed a smiling Mr Kim, who has been on hand for nearly all of his state's series of missiles and weapon tests that started in May, standing by a launcher.

"It's possible that the missiles were fired from. a 600 mm super-large multiple rocket launcher, or a new missile system, given their flight from an inland area to the East Sea and their flight distances", the spokesman added.

Trump's efforts to engage with North Korea almost fell apart altogether in February after he followed Bolton's advice at the second summit in Hanoi and handed Kim a piece of paper that called for the transfer of Pyongyang's nuclear weapons and bomb fuel to the United States.

North Korea was due to come into focus when UN General Assembly meeting starts next week in NY after a UN Security Panel report said Pyongyang was violating sanctions to help fund its weapons program.

They said they were unanimous in their belief that Boris Johnson had been motivated by the "improper goal of stymying Parliament". The Government would nearly certainly have to advise the Queen to recall Parliament immediately in such an instance.

Policy analysts say Bolton's departure could help USA efforts to revive the talks but will not make Washington's aim of persuading Pyongyang to give up its nuclear weapons any easier.

Trump and Kim had agreed to restart working-level talks during a meeting at the Demilitarized Zone dividing the Korean peninsula in June, but those talks have yet to begin.

Biegun's remarks last week highlighted that nearly no progress has been made toward an agreement on North Korea's nuclear program despite three meetings between Trump and Kim.

In a statement issued in late August, Vice Foreign Minister Choe said that expectations of dialogue with the US are "gradually disappearing".

Kim, who has suspended testing of nuclear weapons and intercontinental ballistic missiles while engaged in talks with the USA, has given Trump until the end of the year to ease up on sanctions choking his state's anemic economy. At the same time, he has threatened to take a "new path", if the USA doesn't change course.

North Korea's official media has repeatedly denounced U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and urged Trump to replace him with a "more mature" interlocutor.

Washington has given no indication so far that it will soften its demand for North Korea's ultimate denuclearization, even though with Bolton gone, the risky all-or-nothing gambit is unlikely to be repeated so bluntly.
