North Korea: Tremor detected in north east

South Korean President Moon Jae-in and Vladimir Putin G-20 summit Hamburg July 7

Previous quakes from North Korea have indicated nuclear tests by the reclusive state, the most recent earlier this month.

The quake occurred about 50km (31 miles) from a nuclear test site, monitors say.

It would ban exports of liquefied natural gas to the North immediately as well.

South Korea says Kim Jong Un's rebuke against U.S. President Donald Trump marked the first time a North Korean leader directly issued a statement to the worldwide community under his name.

The natural disaster, which South Korea put at magnitude 3.0, was detected in Kilju county in North Hamgyong Province, where North Korea's known Punggyeri nuclear site is located, the official said. The sale of natural gas will be prohibited and refined petroleum sales will be capped at 2 million barrels annually.

North Korea's foreign minister Ri Yong Ho is set to address the United Nations General Assembly in NY this afternoon.

Bezel-less HTC U11 Plus to release on November 11
The HTC U11 Plus will also feature the Edge Sense technology with which you can interact with the smartphone by squeezing it. The Ocean Master is now believed to be the next HTC flagship smartphone and it could end up being called the HTC U11 Plus.

It has also fired at least 22 missiles this year in tests that have shown its capabilities increasing.

But Beijing fears pressuring Kim's regime into collapse, triggering a flood of refugees across its border and eliminating a strategic buffer separating China from the United States military in South Korea.

The announcement follows days of increasingly bellicose rhetoric between US President Donald Trump and Kim Jong-Un's regime, which has raised worldwide alarm.

At the United Nations, Trump called Kim "rocket man" and threatened to "totally destroy" North Korea. "As such, we refuse to handle any individual loans connected to North Korea". "At this point, no matter how many sanctions are piled on, the current government of North Korea simply can not give in". They also argue against doing anything that might hurt ordinary North Koreans.

Ministry spokesman Baik Tae-hyun says North Korea should stop provocations that would "lead to its own isolation and demise".

The US has accused Beijing of not doing enough to pressure Pyongyang into abandoning its nuclear programme. One thing North Korea is extremely good at is absorbing pain.
